Finally the MCU and Disney went full horror movie, although this one isn’t very scary. No it’s just tons of fun, has some great action scenes and nice humor that works. Werewolf by Night also has a good cast, too, and despite being a tad short the length works here. This is supposed to be a homage to classic Universal Studios horror movies, too, although it is clearly based on Marvel Comics as well.
Gael García Bernal is great in this as the hero, Laura Donnelly is also fantastic, and Harriet Sansom Harris is wonderfully evil. There is a surprise appearance by one Marvel character, and a fight scene that might be one of the best in the whole MCU and which I want to watch again, sooner rather than later.
I would love it if more horror was done in the MCU, and I’m hoping the future Blade project comes to fruition. Whether or not the characters in this one are revisited is for now unlikely, although that remains to be seen. Check this one out if you can, too bad since it’s on Disney+ we are probably unlikely to get this one on physical media. Such is the downside to online viewing these days.
