A new trend?
22 March 2015 | by gothic-fictionSee all my reviews

So, last night I just finished watching Spring. Wow does these 2 resemble a lot! Sadly, in a bad way...

Let's see: both of them involve a woman, going through changes, becoming something different, a monster if you like. Any originality here? Of course not, just making the most of a indeed small budget, but it will easily go unnoticed, cause let's face it, this is not what anyone is looking for when searching for a horror. It is another dull ride, maybe a tad bit better than Spring indeed, nevertheless, dull, heading to a romantic ending and that's that.

I won't recommend it "When animals dream", but if you're searching for something familiar, a movie about an isolated place, you could put an eye on "The dark" or ""Dorothy Mills". Both of them, far better!

Cheers!
