Ghost_Light Horror

Hooptober Review #17!

Colossal (2016)

Rules Fulfilled:

Watch and Review 31 Horror Movies (plus 3 extra credit) by Halloween: 16/31

1 Kaiju or Kong film (Not the new Godzilla vs. Kong)
1. Colossal

This and Host are the two movies I can't stop talking about. I honestly thought this was going to be my "Yeah...but is it HORROR?" watch this challenge. The preview made it seem like some weird-ass romantic comedy. My Just Watch app goes through all the genres for this one: it's a drama! It's sci-fi! It's a fantasy! before mentioning horror, so I was expecting a light little movie about self-discovery.

What I got was a horror story of abuse wrapped up in a film about a woman discovering she controls the giant monster attacking Korea.

I'm going to put the rest under a spoiler cut because I really want to talk about this movie.

This is messy because I don't want to give away All teh Things, but I promise - this one will stick with you.

Available on Hulu.
