Scaredy Nerds Week 17
Hunters Be Crazy
So what did you think of our foreign tale of murder and revenge? I hope all that reading didn’t dissuade you from watching. The movie does a really good job in the first half convincing you that these two women are completely justified offing Michel. Be honest, the more time this guy had on screen the more you wanted to kill him yourself. Now at this point I am actually not going to say anymore about the film. Why would I do that? Well if you actually watched the film you will know that the movie itself asks the viewer not to spoil it. The filmmaker didn’t want the suspense of the film ruined for future audiences and to be honest I can’t blame him. It is like he knew what the future of filmmaking would hold, where no film could escape having key plot elements spoiled. So in honor of this film, if you want to know how it ends, you need to watch it for yourself!
This Week’s Homework:
This week your homework is the 1955 film The Night of the Hunter. This film is based on the 1953 novel of the same name and is full of lies and murder. The film is considered culturally significant by the United States Library of Congress and is preserved on the National Film Registry. So sit back and enjoy this piece of history, The Night of the Hunter!
