Hypnotoad

# 1-4

I've decided to set a goal to watch and journal 100 movies this year.  I decided to start in the horror genre.  Here is what I've seen so far:
1. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931) Dr. Jekyll faces horrible consequences when he lets his dark side run wild with a potion that changes him into the animalistic Mr. Hyde. My rating: 7/10
2. Planet Terror (2007) After an experimental bio-weapon is released, turning thousands into zombie-like creatures, it's up to a rag-tag group of survivors to stop the infected and those behind its release. My rating: 6/10
3. The Mist (2007) A freak storm unleashes a species of blood-thirsty creatures on a small town, where a small band of citizens hole-up in a supermarket and fight for their lives. Based on a Stephen King novelette.  I read the book and actually enjoyed the movie more!  My rating: 7/10
4. Vargtimmen (1968) An artist in crisis is haunted by nightmares from the past in Ingmar Bergman's only horror film, which takes place on a windy island. My rating: 8/10
