I can’t really describe it but I felt really insulted when I read a comment about Lars Von Trier said that he was trying to make a horrormovie but failed. Tjis is a horrormovie on so many levels, both physical and mental. And why did I wait 13 years to see i? Shame on me.
Il notti del terrore aka Burial ground is my all time favorite go to movie when everything else fail, I watch it at least once a year, it has that level of comfort. I'm not even going to bother to write a review this time, just tell you a little story.
Everyone who has seen the movie knows the effigy that is Peter Bark, the adult male with the horrendous haircut that plays the incestous Michael. You'll never forget him…
I always forget that Rodan is a quite serious movie, lots of people die on screen and I accuse the goofier later guest appearances of being responsible of that. No, this is more in the tone of the original Gojira (though nowhere near as bleak) but it compensates with an ending that is just so heartachingly sad. And some really good sfx.
