The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Premise:

Sennentuntschi: Curse of the Alps (2010)



Starring: Roxane Mesquida, Nicholas Ofczarek, Carols Leal, Andrea Zogg
Director: Michael Steiner


Premise:
A mysterious woman show up in a remote village and a police constable must figure out where she came from.

My Take:
The film cuts between timelines where the constable is helping this lady who showed up out of nowhere and a group of herders in mountain who are toying with an old legend after a night of drunkenness. It's a fine flick as the viewer is constantly trying to figure out who these two timelines connect. And the legend is rather interesting as well.

Rating: So Good

Channel Zero: No End House [Season 2] (2017)



Starring: John Carrol Lynch, Abigail Pniowsky, Aisha Dee, Jeff Ward

Premise:
Season Two has a strange house appearing out of nowhere. Each each room messes with the minds of those who enters and brings up past tragedies.

My Take:
Such a strange mind screw of series. Two best friends enter what they think is horror attraction but really is a living breathing entity feeding off pain and misery. The show is disturbing and fun to watch unfold. The less one knows about it the better.

Rating: So Good

Watched: SyFy

Mercy (2016)



Starring: Frances O'Connor, Chandler Riggs, Dylan McDermott, Mark Duplass
Director: Peter Cornwell


Premise:
A family moves into their grandmother's home after she has a stroke. The two sons start to experience strange things.

My Take:
A mildly interesting movie where what's occurring isn't always obvious. A solid cast helps the cause. Based on the Steven King short story "Gramma".

American Romance (2016)



Starring: John Savage, Diane Farr, Mark Boone Jr, Nolan Gerard Funk, Daveigh Chase, James Duval
Director: Zackary Adlar


Premise:
A reporter asks a sheriff about the inside story of how they caught "The Dirorama Killers".

Told in flashback as the Sheriff explains the process of catching the killers. Unfortunately his explain is a tad more interesting than the flashbacks.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017)



Starring: Milla Jovovich, Ali Carter, Iain Glen
Director: Paul W,S, Anderson


Premise:
Alice attempts to make it back to Raccoon City in hopes to release the cure for the virus and save all  human kind

My Take:
A lot of chasing in this final battle to save humanity for the T-Virus and of course the same crazy action the series in known for.

Honestly I was never a big fan of the movie series, but big fan the original games, yet some how I managed to watched them all. Fans of the series will probably enjoy the final installment.

Rating: Warning
