The Shape of Water Movie Review

Jan 08, 2018 No Comments by

You watch any pre-George Romero horror movie and you know the monster is going to go after the hot blond.  There’s a certain Victorian sensibility to this, the contrast of the innocent maiden with the creature of darkness, though of course the trope was already old when St. George liberated a virgin princess from a […]

I have no idea why, for there will always be something about the American South, whether it is the foggy mountains of Appalachia or the fetid swamps of the Louisiana bayou, that brings a chill to the bones.

We are introduced to Jane, the central character of Torment, as she sits on her sofa intently watching the opening sequence from Romero’s Night of the Living Dead. Her husband John comes home from work. When he asks what she’s doing, she tells him, “It’s so beautiful. So relentlessly sad.” That last sentence is a […]
