Tuesday Movie Review

So I had a couple hours tonight to myself, and thought I would indulge and watch a movie on demand. It isn't really a secret that I am a fan of the horror genre, and when I saw that our dear friends at Comcast have started hosting the 8 Films to Die For, and nearly "shirt me drawers." I randomly selected the movie Penny Dreadful. For a low-budget thriller, I have to say that I was pretty impressed. It even had a cameo by cult-fav Michael Berryman. The filming is great, and the atmosphere of the show is actually pretty damn creepy. It kind of caters to a lot of our primal fears, lost, stranded, alone in the dark, being stalked by a faceless killer...uh ya. Overall, damn fine film. I wouldn't recommend it if you were planning on driving the state roads of Montana at night...(Author's editorial - That is no bueno.) Now after seeing this one, I feel like I am obligated to seek out the other 7 films. Is it a sickness that I have? Once I saw thr original Friday the 13th, I just 'had' to finish the other movies. Honestly, they will be making those films for-freaking-ever. Ok children, now the time that you have all been waiting for...I give Penny Dreadful two of four Bawls

2 out of 4 Bawls eh? Not a bad recommendation. So did this movie have your usual favorites too? You know stuff like puppies, horses, unicorns, fairy Godmothers, that kinda stuff? The cover makes it look like a good family movie. I'm pumped to read the next review. Keep on keepin' on my brotha!
