Horror films have become almost comedy now, the genre has been done to death.

If I watch a horror film now I go to the source of it all, you can't beat either a good hammer house of horror or the teenage slash type 80's movies for a good yarn that doesn't involve some kid running around a corridor in the obligatory white night dress.

Korean / French extremity films are providing the horror juice.

Its affectionately known as the 'Babashite' amongst some horror fans.

The directors follow up film, The Nightingale (2018) is a horrifying gothic revenge drama set in the 1820's ouback.

Its like a grim version of The Last of the Mohicans (1992) which I absolutely adored.
Worthy a watch though?

The first one remains an absolute masterpiece.
Had relatively high hopes for this one but fell for the marketing unfortunately….

Its beautifully paced and choreographed (The Nightingale) but it can also be a punishing and brutal watch.

However, if you can get past the "controversial scene" and the casual racism of its time, then yep, it leaves an impression with you long after the film has finished.
