About modern horror
25 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

The movie "Pop Skull" written by E.L Katz, Lane Hughes, and directed by Adam Wingard is in my opinion the example of an ideal horror. The story is about Daniel and his heartache which has been caused by his girlfriend. When they broke up, Daniel got depressed. He couldn't differentiate between dream and reality. The atmosphere of that movie is dark and creppy like the Edgar Allan Poe's prose. Wingard captured that sense of fear and put it on the screen, in every movie shot. "Pop Skull" has great music, noble photos and excellent acting.The main character Daniel played by Lane Hughes is so stunning and authentic. The movie language of Pop Skull is hard, obscure and dramatic. The Hounted motif was used very genuine and subtly. When you watch Pop skull it's impossible not to be scared.

Great job Adam.
