This movie is weird. It’s the good kind of weird though, so I like it. The title alone would make you think that it is a horror film, but it isn’t. I mean, it can certainly fit horror as a sub-genre, but I wouldn’t say it’s a full on horror. Calling this a horror film, is like calling Shaun of the Dead a horror film. There are aspects of yuck in there, but it’s more humorous than scary.
I watched a pretty good movie tonight called He Never Died. Starring Henry Rollins, the film is about Jack, a man who lives a simple, and seemingly boring life, until his daughter Andrea arrives on his doorstep. Then, all hell breaks loose, and we discover that there is far more to this mysterious man’s life than we first believed.
Vin Diesel’s latest film The Last Witch Hunter, is about a witch hunter named Kaulder, who was cursed by a witch in the middle ages with eternal life. 800 hundred years later, Kaulder is working for a religious group as a peace keeper between witches and humans. After his handler is attacked, Kaulder goes on the hunt for the witch, and stumbles across a plan that could destroy the world.
Crimson Peak is the newest film from directer Guillermo del Toro, whose notable works include Pan’s Labyrinth and Pacific Rim. Starring Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska, the film is a throwback to the classic gothic horror stories of old.
I’ve always loved a good anthology film, and it’s sad to say that good ones are few and far between. If you are wondering what an anthology film is, it is a film that consists of several short stories that are somehow all linked together. I’m sure you’re all familiar with the popular examples such as Pulp Fiction, Paris Je t’aime and Love Actually.
