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.

Bag of Bones (2011)

Starring: Pierce Brosnan, Melissa George, Anabeth Gish
Director: Mick Garris


Premise:
After his wife dies, a writer spends some time at their lake house. While there he discovers he can communicate with his dead wife...and another spirit who curse a group of town folk long ago and is still seeking revenge.

My Take:
Not anywhere close to being as good as the source material, but then again it rarely ever is a movie based on Stephen King's work.
This was a miniseries that moved very slow until final thirty minutes. Brosnan was fantastic though and helped keep the story moving.

Rating: In the middle
