The Rundown: The film festival erupts in chaos and the survivors discover their world is changing around them.
The theater erupts in terror as the patrons file out among a swarm of bats attacking everyone while Dracula attacks and kills several fleeing patrons. A small group of survivors including Owen get away but find their path to safety changed to an old London street that harbors a werewolf.
As they learn more about the film and the curse surrounding it, they encounter more monsters and barely escape before finding the monster hunter that might have the only way to stop the curse before it covers the world.
The Story: Bunn continues to craft a fun, thrilling love letter to classic movie monsters in this issue. The action is fantastic and there are some genuine scares to be had in the story. Bunn does a brilliant job of crafting and creating this world and you find yourself immersed in the characters and caring what happens to them.
The Art: Hurtt delivers some beautifully detailed art that perfectly captures the tone of the story. The visuals are amazing and terrifying throughout.
