Horrors Elsewhere is a frequent column that focuses on various movies from all over the world, especially those that are not from the United States. Fear may not be universal, but one thing is certain-screams can be understood no matter when and where.

Returning home is not an easy decision for Adam. He has managed to stay away for fifteen years. However, he now found himself back in the old house where his parents hadn't moved. The reason for Adam's sudden return eventually brought him and his brother Clint to the depths of the forest. What might have been a heartfelt reunion between estranged brothers and sisters soon became an unprecedented thing. What's unnatural.

In the Devil in the Dark (also known as the Plateau), Clint (Dan Payne) has never seen his younger brother Adam (Robin Dunn) since his father died. It was a surprise in itself to let him come back, but what was even stranger was that Adam wanted to go camping when he returned home. Before the brothers ventured into the remote British Columbia forest, they quickly fell into the old pattern. Adam doesn't care about other people's time, Clint always assumes Adam's worst. The next six days were not easy, the brothers soon realized.

The journey begins with the wrong feet. Not only did Adam get a hangover from drinking all night with an old friend, Clint also resumed his picky way. He even gave Adam the bag of supplies he had packed earlier because he had a "hunch" that he would not be ready. Instead of bringing ATV to the doomed plateau, Clint hopes they will do something "old school". The long journey gave the brothers enough time to get to know each other again after trying their best to avoid each other for so long.

Now, this poster — with a young Adam in the foreground and a dark antler figure in the foggy background — promises a biological feature. Is art misleading? No, not exactly. The devil in the dark conveyed its claims more or less, but some caveats need to be considered. That ominous and mysterious monster will definitely appear at the end of the movie. With this in mind, this creature is almost invisible to the naked eye. It has abstract parts here and there, but in general, the opponent is an invisible or completely shrouded in darkness. A good rule of thumb for making monster movies is that less is more; in the long run, acting too much will only deprive them of their power. There are few monsters on the screen, forcing the audience to use their imagination. Nevertheless, Devil can benefit from at least one substantial shot.

What exactly is the monster of the devil in the dark? Antlers are a big clue. Ever since Larry Fessenden showed his fascination with them, Wendigo has accidentally become more comfortable in popular culture. Before that, they were mainly old-fashioned pulp and comic stuff. The mythological basis comes from aboriginal folklore, usually a cold spirit stemming from greed or other human weaknesses. Fessenden’s explanation was praised for its iconic but fairly new elk-like features, but Matt Fox made a similar description in the famous Mystery of Mystery published in 1944. At the same time, the off-white with the same name as the demon in the dark imitates the modern Wendigo, and at the same time it looks very human.

Oh, and although Bigfoot and Wendigo have different origins and activities, they are often confused. Movies involving the former are often direct and reactionary. And Wendigo’s story almost always goes deep into the hearts of the people and finds out anything that might seduce one of these terrible abominations. For example, Adam's resentment towards Clint is obvious. He bluntly accused his brother of the bad relationship with his father Glenn (Daniel Kudmore), who had little in common with his youngest child. For this reason, Adam was unconsciously excluded from father-son activities, such as hunting and other traditional male pastimes. 

Adam's lifelong burden attracted him to the legend of Wendigo, which is a warning story. It is said that those outside their community are more susceptible to Wendigo's influence. This is why the monster is targeting Adam; he considers himself the outcast in his family. A large part of this separation was voluntary in later life-Adam moved away and left Clint to take care of their father-but it is undeniable that Glenn's preference for Clint has exacerbated the relationship between his sons. Relationship. Adam's bitterness finally allowed Wendigo to enter his heart and obtain some new food.

Experienced horror viewers may find it difficult to find public horror materials here. However, perhaps more worrying than killer Wendigo is that the length of the story denies any end of the character. Adam and Clint did not apologize and move on from their inner heartache, but acted stubbornly. As a result, they were severely punished. The continuous pain of regret on both sides has exceeded the sudden ending.

This is a tense family drama first, and a horror movie second. At the risk of shutting out potential new viewers, it's fair to point out how elusive the element of terror here is. In order to better explain the complicated relationship between the two brothers, he deliberately delayed a little bit. The protagonist’s convincing chemical reactions and performances, as well as a large amount of atmosphere, give the creatures better characteristics. Tim Brown and Kelly Dixon’s understanding of this concept is different from that of most people. The success of "Devil in the Dark" does not lie in its creepy part.

Almost all horror anthologies, whether they are movies or TV series, have a gimmick. Some are attached to certain authors because of their source material (The Unexpected Story of Roald Dahl, Ray Bradbury Theatre), while others are holiday themes (Trick'r Treat, Into the Dark) . There are many patterns. An anthology concept that has stood out so far is the concept of the master of horror that defines Showtime. The self-contained story collection of these two seasons still lingers in the memory of fans.

Masters of Horror is a passion project of Mick Garris, inspired by the dinner prepared for him and his horror film directors. The design is simple; each episode is directed by a famous name in the horror genre: Dario Argento , John Carpenter, Joe Dante, Stuart Gordon, and Toby Hooper, to name a few.

With Masters of Horror now streaming in HD on Screambox, now is the best time to relive the series. These five memorable episodes are a good starting point.

Thanks to the J-horror wave of the 2000s, Takashi Miike is gaining more and more recognition outside of Japan. The filmmaker is widely praised for his existing works, including "The Happiness of Katakuris", "Hitman One" and "Missed Calls" and was invited to participate in "Master of Horrors." Despite his contribution, "Imprint", the first season was about to end, and Showtime was eventually not broadcast due to concerns about its content. Please note that Masters has taken full advantage of its blood and sexual license. Therefore, the fact that “imprints” are separately listed as too disturbing shows something.

In Miike's drama, set in the 19th century, an American (Billy Drago) travels to Japan to find his lost lover, Michié. After learning the news of her death, another lady told a story about the cruel fate of Xiaotao.

After watching "Brand", it is not difficult to understand why Xinxin was so cautious in the first place; this is the most vivid episode in the entire series. What it lacks in Miike's typical dark wisdom, it makes up for it with completely shocking value and creepy fun.

Dario Argento doesn't need much introduction, and it is of course easy for him to be the director. However, Argento did not write any of his two entries because the director usually does not participate in the script. Of course, there are exceptions to the rules, but dealing with "Jennifer" on paper is the star of this episode, Steven Webb. The story itself comes from the mind of Bruce Jones.

In "Jennifer", a disgruntled police officer (played by Webber) encounters a man who tries to kill the character of the same name (played by Carrie Anne Fleming) in this episode. He rescued her, only to find that she was different from any other woman he had ever seen. The police soon fell into Jennifer's spell and began to long for her to be touched. Unfortunately, for him and those who have been in contact, Jennifer also has her own unique desires.

Although Argento didn't write this, he injected as much of his directing style as possible. "Jennifer" is still a fascinating, if not mysterious obsession story in the end. This is a fallen story, with many bites.

At that time, Lucky McKee was not well-known. He has directed the excellent film "May" before, but other than that, McKee didn't feel scared when he came to Masters. Knowing this, "Sick Girl" eventually became the favorite of many series fans.

In "The Sick Girl", a clumsy entomologist (played by Angela Betis) begins dating an eccentric artist (played by Irene Brown). At first, Betis's character worried that her insect career would scare off her date, but this discovery would only cause the opposite reaction. At the same time, someone directly provided a rare-and very dangerous-specimen that will test women's new relationships.

When "Sick Girl" first aired, weird horror scenes were not common, but this episode was a fresh breath. In all the stories, this story has enough room for critical analysis. For example, homophobia appears in the form of a grumpy neighbor whose obvious aversion to the lesbian protagonist is filtered by a strong aversion to insects. I just want to say that there are many things to analyze here.

John Carpenter's first episode is considered the absolute best episode of the series. This story touches a favorable theme in the horror; the cursed object. In this case, the unfortunate project is the movie.

According to legend, the highly sought-after film in "Cigarette Burns" was only screened once because it plunged the audience into violent conflict. The role of Norman Reedus was later hired by a fan played by Udo Kier to trace the missing film. This will only put him on a path of no return.

Like Carpenter's In the Mouth of Madness, "Cigarette Burns" imagined what would happen if someone's artwork had such a dangerous influence. There are some caveats to consider when evaluating this episode, but the thoughts at work have unearthed some disturbing and profound things about why movies are so important to us.

When recalling the master of horror, Brad Anderson may not be the first name that comes to mind, but his movie Session 9 has many followers. The achievement made by suspense alone may be the reason for his enlistment in the second season. Compared to other episodes, "sounds" feels like an anomaly.

In "Sounds Like", the father and husband (Chris Bauer) are immersed in work in order to avoid thinking of their own sadness. After losing his son, he also has incredible abilities; his hearing has increased. However, over time, the rackets in his head became too many, and he had to find a way to silence the noise.

When it was first released, "Sounds Like" was considered not terrible. The truth is, this episode of Anderson really feels like something from "Twilight." Since the series was broadcast, the atmosphere of horror has changed a lot, so today's viewers may better appreciate this unusual and rather sad story about sadness.
