    The Endless

    ★★★

    Additional Film Of My Shock-tober 2018 Challenge

    Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson's "The Endless" is as intriguing as it is frustrating. The story and the themes are really fascinating and there are a couple of aha moments that really know how to surprise you, but the film is also unwieldy and unevenly paced.

    Moorhead and Benson play the main characters, the brothers Aaron and Justin, who return to the commune / cult that they fled from years ago. Back there…

    Ich bin so froh, dass man sich für diese Ende entschieden hat, denn das alternative Ende auf der Blu-ray lässt jegliche Subtilität und Fingerspitzengefühl vermissen...

    Hellboy

    ★★★★½

    Additional Film Of My Shock-tober 2018 Challenge

    Guillermo del Toro's "Hellboy" is still one of the best and unique comic book adaptions of the last twenty years, which is partly due to del Toro's incredible sensibilities as a horror connoisseur and equally incredible talkent to direct memorable stories about misfits and monsters.

    "Hellboy" has also been my cinematic comfort-blanket since I was eleven years old. So it feels just right to rewatch it on this day, my birthday, which I…
