~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

Song of Kali


Author: Dan Simmons

Synopsis:
A magazine editor and his family travel to Calcutta to inspect a the origins of a new poem from author who died eight years previous. Upon trying to decipher the poem authenticity, he lead into a cult for the goddess Kali. He witnesses things he cannot explain and doesn't truly believe. But his life will never be the same.

My Take:
Dan Simmons is one of my favorite authors and this is one of the books I've been wanting to read for a long time. It does not disappoint.
There is a constant chill running throughout the entire novel as the plot slowly unwinds and gets more involved. The horrific moments here come from personal turmoil caused by the editor's desire to discover the truth.

My Take: So Good
