    Screams Around the World Challenge 2023 - Costa Rica

    There is some decent atmosphere here but the film could have been longer. Drawing out some of the shots of the woman stirring her coffee would have helped to build a greater sense of unease. A short, sweet, and enjoyable watch with a few creepy moments.

    Screams Around the World Challenge - Uzbekistan

    It's hard to get too mad at a film that looks like it was made by a guy with too much time and no animation skills. That said, it was nice to see Uzbekistan as it really is--not in a flashy movie way but from the point-of-view of a regular person. Plus, there was that great shot of birds making out. Not to mention that now I can tell my friends that I…

    Screams Around the World Challenge - Mongolia

    This is your standard Monkey's Paw tale where a cursed object, in this case, a doll, grants wishes that don't exactly turn out as planned. The film features a few scary moments and some solid makeup work. The performances and visuals are overall good as well.

    There is one scene where the doll appears in a dream as a living woman that speaks to Saraa. This looks ridiculous and brings the movie down…

    A classic that still holds up all these years later. The monster is one of my favorite horror characters. His makeup by Jack Pierce is iconic and Boris Karloff's performance is incredible! Colin Clive also gives an electric performance as Dr. Frankenstein.

    The only thing I've never cared for is the epilogue that feels tacked on and is a little too wholesome for this dark tale. That aside, this is otherwise a perfect film and a must-see for any horror fan.

    Very disturbing and difficult to watch. Sort of a study in domestic violence and abusive, controlling relationships. It's filmed beautifully, the acting is great and it's well-paced. In fact, it feels almost too real at times and makes you feel dirty for watching it.

    This isn't the kind of film you watch to enjoy and I doubt it's one I'll ever rewatch, but I'm sure Hounds of Love will stick with me for some time.

    Recommendation: Rent it.
    Be sure to follow it up with some cute cat videos.

    I don't understand all the hate on this one. I think this ended David Gordon Green's trilogy well and I like that he never makes the same movie twice. He keeps finding something new to say about Michael Myers and Laurie Strode and once again, I think he did a good job.
