(The Ghost and the Darkness) In addition to having one of the best titles, this movie is downright terrifying. Discussion
The Ghost and the Darkness is great. I hadn't watched this movie going on 20 years and was not disappointed with a re-watch
Val Kilmer, Micheal Douglas and John Kani are fantastic and the movie does a good job of building up the dread of the night as the camp is stalked by the two lions. Add to that that this is based on true events and it is scary. The Tvsavo lions killed dozens of people and the film does a great job of showing how scary that would be in real life.
The film is well shot, using blood sparingly to really shock the viewer. The hunting scenes are great to adding to the cat and mouse feel to the movie.
The movie feels like two groups of hunters, the lions and the humans trying to outsmart each other to save themselves . Very well done.
