  • The Howling: Reborn 2011

    ★★ Watched 18 Oct, 2014

    With influences from Underworld, Twilight, Spider-Man and every 1990s Kevin Williams script but the budget of a direct to DVD Canadian produced, failed TV pilot.

    ★★★★ Rewatched 25 Jul, 2012 3

    Thank jeebus for Letterboxd. For years I've been doing the "Bond Marathon" before the latest 007 adventure. For years I thought I was the only sad fucker who endured all twenty something films in preparation for the next slice of kiss kiss, bang bang. There's a few that have more or less concluded this little ritual, but seeing as Skyfall ain't out until 26th October I thought I'd slowly work my way through them, starting now.
