Check out my list on Screen Rant: Grizzly II: Revenge — 10 Bizarre Facts About The Almost Lost Film screenrant.com/grizzly-ii-revenge-bizarre-facts-almost-lost-film/
A love letter to the classic Roger Corman Edgar Allen Poe films and the films of Vincent Price. Elvira loves these films and that is shown in the attention-to-detail with the production design and the many fun Easter eggs. It's also nice to see a comedy parody led by a woman. This was made in the early 2000's and we still don't see enough films like this. The cast is great and Richard O'Brien is a nice addition. The dedications…
On a rewatch, I was really impressed with the performances. They're not amazing but for a Full Moon feature, they're pretty good. I also liked the characters. The biggest thing holding this one back is the tone which goes from intense thriller/drama to campy comedy.
Recommendation: It's a cheap Chucky knock-off. If you enjoy similar movies like Jack Frost (not the Michael Keaton one!), you'll probably like this one too.
Very disturbing and difficult to watch. Sort of a study in domestic violence and abusive, controlling relationships. It's filmed beautifully, the acting is great and it's well-paced. In fact, it feels almost too real at times and makes you feel dirty for watching it.
This isn't the kind of film you watch to enjoy and I doubt it's one I'll ever rewatch, but I'm sure Hounds of Love will stick with me for some time.
Recommendation: Rent it.
Be sure to follow it up with some cute cat videos.
The premise is great. The execution...not so much. This had potential but it feels like a discount version of Ghost Ship. So much could have been done with this but it falls into lazy, found-footage cliches. The worst part is that we're stuck with two very annoying characters for the entire runtime. Their douchey influencer talk grated on my nerves.
Recommendation: Just watch Ghost Ship instead. It's also cheesy but at least that one is fun.
