Alternate Title: Le Pacte des loups
I feel the need to highlight this French film that isn’t very well-known in the States, even though it should be. It’s an entertainment film, much like what one would expect from Hollywood, but there’s a key difference. In the middle of its fights scenes and romance, there’s a running theme of the significance of the Age of Reason. Consequently, it’s a skeptic’s alternative to Sleepy Hollow – a neat Halloween movie that does a better job of celebrating critical thinking. While it is rather slow, it’s also dramatic, creepy, and clever. Try it on for size one night when you’re in the mood for some chills.
