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.

Walking Dead: All Out War, Part 1 (Volume 20)



Author: Robert Kirkman
Illustrator: Charlie Adlard

Premise:
The three communities band to together to take out Neegan once and far and all.

Capsule (2015)



Starring: Edmund Kingsley
Director:Andrew Martin

Premise:
During the Cold War a British astronaut is sent on a solo space mission with limited contact to home base. As he gets farther into his mission the spacecraft starts to malfunction and he keeps receiving strange transmissions.

My Take:
A large part of the movie rests on the lead actor who does a fine job. While the movie is far from perfect the director does holds the tension together and works well in the confined budgets.

Rating: In the middle

Sundo (2009)

Director: Topel Lee


Premise:
A man saves his friends from death in a car accident. He ends up being able to see spirits, who actual bring upon death to the living and want those who should have died.

My Take:
The movie is sort of a Filipino Final Destination type with death wanting to retrieve its original victims. It keeps the viewer interested but is also rather forgettable.

Bite (2015)




Starring: Elma Begovic, Annette Wozniak, Denise Yuen, Jordan Gray
Director: Chad Archibald


Premise:
A woman is bitten by something during her bachelorette party trip overseas. Her body starts changing and morphing upon her return home.

My Take:
One tends to forgive the unlikable character's lack of judgment and gaps of time due to the outstanding practical effects and sheer gross out moments. Sit back and enjoy the ooze.

Rating: So Good

Halley (2013)



Starring: Alberto Trujillo, Luly Trueba
Director: Sebastian Hoffman


Premise:
A man who works as a night guard in a 24 hour gym forms a friendship with is female manager. The one issue is the man is also dead.

My Take:
A movie not for all horror fans as it leans heavily on dramatic situations. The man is a functioning zombie for all purposes (though the z word is never used) and he treats it as a condition of surviving.

The Blackout Experiments (2016)





Starring: Andrew Gallagher, Bob Glouberman, Jessica Sowa
Director: Rich Fox


Premise:
A group of people under go these experiences called "Blackout" which borderline on physical and mental torture.

My Take:
The scenario for the movie seems interesting but it quickly goes nowhere and becomes a lot of the same things over and over. It plays out as a straight forward documentary which I dont think really helps in the viewers search for answers.

Rating: Warning
