Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror

Posts


We explore women coming undone — discussing a bewildering blast from the past, “Night of the Coba Woman”, and a modern marvel, “Stopmotion”.

Stopmotion

We begin, as always, with news of what’s happening in the world of horror.

We may give our opinions on a few movies each week, but it is rare that we go back and remind the audience that they have to go out and watch something. Lovely, Dark, and Deep is the rare exception. We have absolutely gushed about it since we first saw it last year and are glad to see it has finally been released in theaters. There are a lot of options on what to spend your theater bucks on, but this is an absolute must-see.

True Detective: Night Country was over before it began, and we have a lot to talk about.

We also discuss just how close the world came to getting a Truth or Dare 2 (not the Madonna version). But the strangest news of the week just may have been who has been attached to the Bee Gees biopic.

Then, it’s on to our featured film reviews. 

Night of the Cobra Woman

Night of the Cobra Woman is a strange movie. The story of a woman who is bit by a cobra — and apparently has to sleep with men to remain young — never really materializes.

A person’s first appearance sees assault, then killing a woman, while his last scene is him saving the day. People realize their significant others are in danger and just leave. Nothing makes sense, and it looks like everyone involved had no idea what they were doing. At least the makeup effects were good.

Stopmotion is the exact opposite.

The story of a talented artist who becomes obsessed with their work is not new to horror. But the performances, effects, and storytelling in the film are fantastic. Though this is live-action, it also includes some great animated moments.

The horror is expertly done in this surprising and unique film, and there is something in Stopmotion for all genre fans to enjoy.
