Scary evil: eight charismatic maniacs from the world of cinema (part 2)

7. Maniac (Bloody harvest/FR. Haute tension, France, 2003) French Thriller directed by Alexander Azhe (“Mirrors”, “the hills have eyes”) in our collection — a kind of delicacy before dessert… This film is certainly not as popular as the above pictures, but is familiar to fans of the genre.

And not only the main character-Carol Danvers, but also others already familiar to us from the earlier films of the film universe.It’s a very cute movie. I don’t know if I’ve been lucky enough to get cute pictures lately, but compared to all the latest movie comics, “Captain marvel” is as toothless as possible. Continue reading
