Starring Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins, it tells the story of a nobleman returning to his estate to find that an animal with incredible blood-lust has been killing the local villagers. Cue plenty of howling, plenty of blood – and actually a surprisingly good storyline! The only other version I know of, was an old black and white one made in 1941 of the same title, and I think this newer version was based on that.
The special effects were pretty good and the muted colour palette throughout just added to the overall spookiness of the film! All-in-all one of those films that was truly scary with plenty of genuinely shocking moments. I used to hate these sort of films, but I’m all right neee-ooow!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
