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.

Shadows (2007)

AKA: Senki

Director: Milcho Manchevski


Premise:
A young man gets into a horrible car accident and attempts to put his life back together in the shadow of his successful, dominating mother and his marriage on the verge of failure.

My Take:
What makes this basic plot very interesting is the way it is presented. The story is disjointed and edited so a mystery is created concerning the elements in this man life: an old woman with a eerie message, a young woman he may be falling in love with, his wife who is having an affair, and his rehabilitation. It all pays off in the end to a very likeable flick.

Rating: In the middle
