The Viewing

The Viewing ★★★★

Think it goes from 0 to 100 a little bit too quickly but I don't know if I care that much when it looks this pretty and simply put, cool as fuck. Panos Cosmatos uses the opportunity to tell a short story in a way that I don't think you see all that often. Instead of telling a clear cut story from beginning to end, this feels more like a pitch for an idea he's had in his head for a while now. The story of this one is extremely basic and for the most part, it works more as a play (or episode of Inside No. 9) than it does a spooky anthology horror episode like the rest of the Cabinet of Curiosities season. Might take a bit long to get going and I think I would've liked a little more meat on the bones of the second half but I absolutely loved my time with this one either way. Guillermo Del Toro should absolutely get involved with whatever he's cooking again.
