Looks like you’re getting two Halloween posts for today and tomorrow, which might be the biggest commitment I’ve ever made to Halloween on my blog. Like I did last year: I’m going to commit a little time towards talking about one of my favourite cult horror movies before moving onto something I feel everyone knows about tomorrow. For now though, I’m going to be talking about the 2002 British Werewolf movie; Dog Soldiers.
I saw this movie once before, and my prevailing memory of it was it making me angry, and I don’t get genuinely angry at movies very often. Coming back to it now, years later, my frustrations have cooled significantly. But that doesn’t mean Terminator Genisys isn’t still a bastardization of an iconic movie franchise that I’m not sure anyone really wanted.
You could call this a prelude to whatever Halloween based content I eventually decide to post on my blog before the month is up. Because historically, I don’t tend to make that big of a deal out of Halloween whatsoever. So maybe this is me meeting the holiday halfway and pretending this is my Halloween feature when I realise that October has come and gone and the plans I had have fallen out of the window.
This feature was spurned on by my spontaneous decision to watch the latest Terminator movie recently. And as a franchise that’s decided to alter its own time travel logic with each new movie, why not add a little more confusion tot he pile by going back through the series again in reverse order. Starting with 2019’s Terminator: Dark Fate.
