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.

The Shout (1978)

Starring: Alan Bates, John Hurt, Susanna York, Tim Curry
Director: Jerzy Skolimowski

A drifter accepts the politeness of a couple and stays with them for awhile. He tells about learning magic from an Aboriginal shaman including a love spell and a death shout. Soon the couple starts to discover maybe these things are real.

My Take:
A pretty cool concept for a movie as the viewer never is quite certain about the claims of the stranger yet the actions happening back up his story. And the use of sound in the film makes it all the more disorientating.
An excellent cast pulls off the material with ease and the direction of the movie is superior.

Rating: So Good
