The Wolf of Snow Hollow: Hair of the Dog

The Wolf of Snow Hollow

“The Wolf of Snow Hollow” represents a progression of the tonal balancing act writer, director, actor Jim Cummings pulled off in his feature debut, “Thunder Road,” utilizing many tools and tricks that weren’t available to him on his previous outing, now with an infinitely larger budget (“Snow Hollow” was produced by Orion Pictures), as well as a game cast of professional actors (Robert Forster, Riki Lindhome, Jimmy Tatro) who seem to really “get” Cummings’ unique style and approach to filmmaking. At the end of the day though, it’s the multi-hyphenate writer, director, actor’s portrayal of Officer Marshall which serves as the glue that holds “Snow Hollow” together. 


Dracula: In Blood We Find the Truth


Although “The Rules of the Beast” starts off in familiar territory, showrunners Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat eventually manage to present their own unique twist on the subject matter – aided by a delightfully over-the-top performance from Claes Bang as the titular vampire – setting up a new status quo for the rest of the series that’s different from anything we have seen in previous adaptations of the novel.


Penny Dreadful: Series Review

Penny Dreadful

“Penny Dreadful” is somehow as good, or greater, than the sum of its parts – even though those parts include several of the greatest works of fiction ever written – aided by a killer cast, tonnes of moody atmosphere, and John Logan’s Sorkin-esque approach to scripting (with sole writing credit throughout most of the series), bringing everything together into a cohesive whole with its own unique voice and perspective. “Penny Dreadful” is one of the greatest (most underrated) shows of the 21st century.
