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.

The Pack (2011)


AKA: La Muete


Starring: Phillipe Nahon
Director: Frank Richard

Premise:
A woman picks up a hitchhiker. They stop at a bar. The man disappears. She attempts to find him and gets caught be the owner, who turns out to be the hitchhiker's mother. The mother keeps the woman to feed her "pack of children" when they rise from poisoned soil.

My Take:
I enjoyed the first two-thirds of this movie, even with all eccentric characters that feel a bit forced at times, as it drawn out and leads you down one path. Then it changes on a dime to a different path, which is fine, but the final act simply gets too frenetic and makes little sense. If the ending would have kept the same control and pacing as the rest of the movie it all may have worked much better.

Rating: In the middle
