Often overlooked or written off, horror movies tend to get a bad reputation outside of their niche audience. Every once in a while, though, a film comes along that embraces the genre’s best elements making it more accessible to the masses. Part of the Vanguard programme at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, Here Comes The Devil is one such film.
As many of his fans know, Joss Whedon leaves a recognizable mark on everything he touches. Much Ado About Nothing is no exception, adding a signature sense of humor and a fitting weight to an otherwise lighthearted Shakespearean comedy of manners. The film radiates such love and passion, light and meaty in equal measure, it’s a joy to watch.
