The Hunger - Soul Snatchers 2000 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Four more episodes from Showtime’s The Hunger series. These episodes are from the second season and are introduced by David Bowie. These stories deal with the different natures of evil.
In the first tale, Bowie is an artist of the extreme who has sought seclusion in an old prison. But one day a man comes seeking sanctuary and Bowie decides to let him in. Bowie’s motives and what happens makes for a story that many will find disturbing.
In the second story, a partially empty apartment building is suddenly plagued by a vicious killer who seems to me targeting homosexuals. The building owner, also a homosexual, is visited by the strangely dark Michael who is certainly guilty of something. A fine dark tale with interesting revelations.
Next we have a homeless man and a mission worker who share a past. He seems less than sane (or is he more than sane?). e believes he can see the evil of The Freaks. She becomes spooked and frightened although he claims they will now be after her and it is now her job to kill them. Is he crazy? Interesting.
Finally we get the story of an ex-lawyer, not morgue worker, who is afraid to look in people’s eyes. He thinks that he can see their deepest evils and he does not want to see them. He has a therapist who wants to help him but doesn’t believe him. To make it worse, the man will not look in the therapists eyes to prove what he says. In the end the man has a revelation at a tragic moment. Possibly the best story on the disk.
Because this is a Showtime show, there is plenty of nudity and sex so these stories are not appropriate for all.
