Hour of the Wolf

Hour of the Wolf ★★★½

Daily Horror Scavenger Hunt 2 - August 2018

29. We should celebrate the summer of Love by watching a horror movie from 1968. 

I really need to watch this again to really appreciate it, but I loved what I saw. Very early-Lynch, very eerie, very unsettling. Next time I’ll watch this in a pitch-dark room alone at night. I can see how this had a profound impact on Lynch’s style. When the old woman approaches the wife outside the cottage, I was instantly reminded of the scene in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me when the old woman and her grandson approach Laura Palmer outside the diner and convey a similar message about a secret diary.
