Movie review by Cindy Sanabria

Hey Guys,

Just thought I'd share with you my opinion from the last two movies that I've seen. Just in case you would like to check them out for yourself. The first is a horror/werewolf film titled "The company of wolves" Directed by Neil Jordan. Co-stars Angela Lansbury, David Warner and Stephen Rea. It has the feel of a dark fairy tale focusing on Werewolves. I liked this movie because it has a dreamy effect(they definetly use a lot of filters and lenses). The film was released in 1984 and some of the make-up special effects were pretty cool for that time. I'm a huge fan of werewolf films and I find myself watching them a lot lately because my next feature project involves a story about a werewolf. If I had to rate it I give it 3 1/2 out of five reels.

The second film was George Romero's 1973 horror classic "The Crazies". I must admit when I first saw the preview of the remake in theaters last week, I was stoked to watch the original version. I must say, I was quite disappointed. It was very drawn out. A lot of dialogue and a very annoying military drum beat played throughout the film. I am however looking forward to the remake. I'm a huge Romero fan but I did not like this film. Pretty simple shots. Just in case you're curious about the story, It's about the military trying to contain a virus that had been spread due to a contamination of a toxic substance in a small town's water supply. The virus causes people to go "CRAZY" hence the name. I give it one out of five reels for his efforts.
