Bil and Mike watch Cthulhu!
In the final True Detective Horror Diary of the season, we examine the horror genre tradition of withholding closure in endings.
“The Gate” gives us an action-packed conclusion to the eldritch horrors of Stranger Things 2 – and some time to decompress with the gang as they come to terms with getting older.
All roads to lead to the Hawkins Lab in Chapter Eight of Stranger Things and we finally get to see the players reunited against the growing evil threatening to take over the world.
There is a particular subgenre of kitschy horror film that comes out of countries like Spain and Italy. Usually something to do with some dark legend, a dark devil, and a group of hot young people who get caught up in the madness. Spanish director José Luis Alemán continues with his Valdemar series in La Sombra Prohibida, based on H.P. Lovecraft's work. You have the ingredients for a cult Spanish horror film, but unfortunately the film doesn’t entirely work out.
