    "This movie is a true classic, albeit one that disturbs many people who watch it. The story is one that needs to told. The new blu ray release highlights the black and white filming that adds a feeling of history to the experience. Highly recommended. "

    "This is the scariest horror movie film ever! All modern horror movie films are nothing compare to this masterpiece. And so far, I believe that no other horror films have ever equaled the thrill that the movie provides. 5 stars aren't even enough to justify the greatness of this film. "

    "This is funny and scary in equal measure. After all, it ends with a nuclear bomb going off. Peter Sellers' multiple performances are all remarkable. The cinematography is stunning. But there are some very good, classic jokes to be found as well. "

    "I looked through some old movies from the 1950's and found All About Eve. It's black in white. I find the actors are ones of the best to show for that era."

    "Not typically a fan of black and white movies in this genre, I'll have to admit that Embrace Of The Serpent is a stunning adventure that delves deep into the heart of exploration and scientific drive. I was compelled to review it because it is definitely the best movie in black and white that I've ever seen. The story, rather than the visuals, drove the film."

    "I am a huge movie buff. I love watching things that get me going as far as excitement. The Godfather was a great tale of the Italian mob. The movie traces its roots all the way back to Sicility with the Corleone family."
