‘Ghosts of War’ Review

‘Ghosts of War’ Review
Stars: Brenton Thwaites, Theo Rossi, Kyle Gallner, Skylar Astin, Alan Ritchson, Laila Banki, Nathan Cooper, Rebecca Flinn-White, Kaloyan Hristov, Alexander Behrang Keshtkar, Shannon McKain, Yanitsa Mihailova, Matthew Reese, Shaun Toub, Billy Zane | Written and Directed by Eric Bress

There are a surprising number of horror movies set during World War II. Perhaps because it was such a horrific time for most the World, that horror directors believe it is a good back drop for the genre. This, for whatever reason, usually involves zombies but, unsurprisingly given the title, Ghosts of War centres around ghosts.

We see five American soldiers assigned to hold a French château that was formerly occupied by the Nazi high command. What seems like a relatively easy job, soon turns out anything but as a supernatural presence descends on to the soldiers.

One thing Ghosts of War does feature a lot of is gore. Perhaps because of the subject matter of war,

Ghosts of War Review: Supernatural WWII Thriller Sets Up a Shallow Mystery

Ghosts of War Review: Supernatural WWII Thriller Sets Up a Shallow Mystery
Sometimes the memories of our inaction haunt us more than the actions we have committed. This can be especially true at war once you return home to realize the blood on your hands goes far beyond the lives you were directly responsible for extinguishing. Whether you found yourself helpless to act because of a direct order from your superior or you simply froze out of justifiable fear, the screams of those lost will remind you of your complicity either way and haunt your dreams like a curse from the dead. People who weren’t there brush off this nightmarish scenario by saying these horrors are a means to an end, but such judgments won’t alter their psychological impact upon those who’ve experienced them. Our consciences aren’t built to forget.

Snowpiercer Series Recap: “The Universe is Indifferent” (Episode 7)

Snowpiercer Series Recap: “The Universe is Indifferent” (Episode 7)
Things are finally back on track this first season of Snowpiercer, after last week’s extremely transition-y episode that didn’t do a ton to move the narrative forward. Episode 7, entitled “The Universe is Indifferent,” begins to amp up to the promised revolution aboard the titular train in a meaningful way, as an executive upheaval begins to develop, loved ones are lost, and Andre Layton (Daveed Diggs) decides the only way to win the impending war is to align himself with the most twisted passenger aboard the Snowpiercer as well.

“The Universe is Indifferent” opens with a performance from Miss Audrey (Lena Hall) in the Nightcar, while Melanie (Jennifer Connelly) is on the hunt for Layton after their physical altercation last week. It’s apparent from her haughty pursuit of the detective that Melanie’s officially done taking crap, as we watch her interrogate Terence (Shaun Toub), the leader of the janitorial crew,

Snowpiercer Episode 7 Review: The Universe Is Indifferent
This Snowpiercer review contains spoilers.

Snowpiercer Episode 7

The cold opening to this week’s Snowpiercer opens up with none other than Lj Folger (Annalise Basso) discussing human nature. Specifically, how to her one of the core tenets of human behavior is to be self-involved, and how the individual person is never the most important person in the world, no matter what they might think. That’s easy for someone like Lj to say, because she’s only important because her family is important. But what about someone like Melanie (Jennifer Connelly)? In the world of Snowpiercer, she’s the person on the train with real, ultimate power, and that’s why she is involved in every plot, scheme, and silly little game; when you’re one exposed lie away from getting your head stuck out a porthole by your enemies, you tend to take those things seriously.
