Movie Club – The Night of the Hunter (1955)

For March 2022, Corey and Jonathan are picking from movies that are NOW STREAMING. There are so many streaming services to choose from, but sometimes the options are overwhelming. Fortunately, they found four films that at least one of them had never seen before – some originals to the services and one dating back quite a few decades – to center the theme around this month.

As far as the podcast goes, each episode features an in-depth review of the movie for the week. They begin with a spoiler-free review before diving in completely after the needed spoiler warning. However, before getting into the review of the week, Jonathan and Corey discuss what other movies they’ve seen since the last episode as well as anything else they feel like discussing. To help them decide which of the many films to watch each month they started creating themes for them all. Be sure to follow them on Social Media @berkreviews and @coreyrstarr
