After the glorious year we’ve been having with horror, it’s only right it continues on. This time with an MCU halloween special that dives straight into the horror side of Marvel and I’ve been SO anticipating it. Once I saw the trailer and heard the initial reactions, that only raised the hype. Taking it back to a classic monster movie style and man does this just work as something DIFFERENT in the MCU. Literally my only complaint is that I wish it was longer. I coulda used way more time in this world. Other than that, I had a fun ass time with this B&W Halloween special. The old monster movie feel is awesome. Man-Thing! Looks SO fucking good. The action here is sick as well and this actually gives up some much needed MCU carnage. The wolf design was solid and that transformation was executed nicely. Plus Michael Giacchino nails it in the director seat and of course, adds in a cool score once again. I just loved it and hope we get more like this. I also need Man-Thing to pop back up in sumthin else.
Overall it’s something short, straight to the point, and pretty fucking awesome. 8.6/10☕️
