    1. I also think they did a divine and extremely authentic work on the photo session, even the facial expressions are spot on :) Especially Doctor and Cornelius, totally transcending the 19th century photography! Not to mention the other session with them under the ice is super authentically creepy :)

  2. Those pics look scary, all right. I'm not going to read what the story is about. The less I know, the more scary it's going to be. I remember going to The Descent not knowing what it was about. Ten minutes into the movie, I thought it was just gonna be about a couple of women getting stuck in a cave or so.... I had the fright of my life ha!

    2. A man can't know everything. One of the best true horror movies ever made.

  4. I've been watching and wanted to see your post on it. I love the whole production except for one MAJOR thing. The creature/monster/demon is such a letdown! It ruined the whole thing for me.

    Remember the original "IT" mini-series? In the end we finally got to see the "underground" monster, and it sucked! The monster in The Terror is no better.
    The clown scared the crap out of me (as all clowns do), but that was all.

    1. I'm on episode three so I still haven't seen the demon :) I was hoping it was some sort of mutated nasty spawn between a bear and a mammoth :)
