A Little Higher in Quality
24 April 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are two stories here. The first is pretty interesting. It starts out with a man telling another man something in secret. The man suddenly goes mad and begins to scream. Soon an investigator played by William Peterson of CSI fame comes to town because there are about 25 people who have gone nuts. He meets Francis McDormand and they try to piece together how this can be. This is an original story with a creative ending. The second has a double meaning. The red snow in question is blood, but it's also about a Siberian gulag where strange occurrences are taking place involving wolves and death. A high official of the KGB is the central character. He is investigating an area which expresses hatred for the Soviet activities. Good werewolf story.
