The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~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.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Wise Blood (1979)

Starring: Brad Dourif, Harry Dean Stanton, Ned Beatty
Director: John Huston

A man returns from the Army trying to find his way in the world. After several encounters with liars and cheats he decides to start his own church.

My Take:
While this movie is a stretch for horror, the source material delves a little deeper into the genre, there is no doubt the main character is a sociopath. He hates everything and everyone. This is a cruel movie as self suffering plays a huge part.
A fine movie with great actors being lead by one of the best directors.

Rating: So Good
