There are times in which as a fan of the realm of the macabre and chilling, that you can actually find yourself missing the world of Hammer House of Horror, not through any type of morbid curiosity, but because it would have been perhaps more interesting to see how such creatures of British literature might have fared with a more diverse treatment rather than being arguably hung out to dry in the race to take on Marvel and D.C. in a world of heroes, villains, gods and monsters that Universal Pictures seems hell bent on creating.

You may believe you know a story, you may bury it in the past in an effort to move on, to think that humanity has learned its lessons and we have become more attuned to dealing with the atrocities a nation can inflict upon its people, on another group of people just because they are different, because they pray a different way, because their customs are not your own, that they perhaps are more successful so bitter jealousy comes into play; humanity never learns, humanity keeps repeating the same sense of the damned and inexcusable and it is a lesson sharply delivered in The Promise.
