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.

Penny Dreadful, Season 2 (2015)

Starring: Eva Green, Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Harry Treadway, Billie Piper, Rory Kinnear, Reeve Carney

An explorer who holds interests in the occult, a medium targeted by Lucifer, an American gunslinger who might be werewolf, and Dr Frankenstein come together to battle a wicked, supernatural force wanting to unleash Lucifer upon the world.

My Take:
The second did a great job of building up the each of the character's arc, establishing a villain, and creating a good story. Unfortunately that build up came to an rather abrupt and unsatisfying end early in the last episode of the season which then spent the remaining 45 minutes in boring and talkative flux. It left a bad taste in my mouth. However, there are still plenty of positives from the season.

Rating: In the middle

Watched: Showtime
