5.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre & interesting film, 27 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Shout [1978] [DVD] (DVD)
I first saw this advertised on The Horror Channel back in 2004. I ever saw it from the start due to the short time they had to air it (it only aired twice)and I've been waiting for a long time for a DVD release.

Well, it's worth waiting for. The film is very character-driven and thankfully the actors can carry their roles very well. It has a lot of interesting ideas and is very intelligently written.

It does have a very good portrayal of small town life in the UK. The characters, element of mystery (early on) and the intimidation factor of Alan Bates's character and the sense of desperation from John Hurt's character carry the movie pretty well.

EDIT 30-07-14: While watching this recently, I thought "this is a really good movie", so I increased the rating.
