Although not a horror movie, Murder By Decree announces its intent through its opening scene: a rolling panorama of 1888 London during an October sunset, a fog rising, and the night’s first policeman whistles as Big Ben chimes in the distance.
Suspense and dread. That’s what the film offers. Oh! And a solving of the crime by fiction’s greatest detective, Sherlock Holmes!
For so many horror flicks, there’s often the question, “why do bad things happen to good people?” That’s what I was thinking while watching In Fear, from writer/director Jeremy Lovering. Check out the trailer and then read on for my review of this solid film.
