The Beast of the Yellow Night ★★★

Sometimes you gotta love movies that don’t hold back showing the monster in full detail, no matter the quality of the makeup effects.

This one has a lot of confusing melodrama. The attempts at humanism, nihilism, and tragedy mostly fall flat, but – as with the monster makeup effects – I appreciate the effort. It at least makes for a relatively original story. It’s also worth sitting through if only to see the monster in rage mode in the streets of the Philippines.
