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.

Barricade (2012)

Starring: Erik McCormick

Director: Andrew Currie


Premise:
After the death of his wife, a widower takes his kids to a remote cabin where their mother used to spend her holidays. Once their, things become amiss and the father barricades them inside the cabin for protection.

My Take:
The movie gives a decent effort. By the end, though, it falls short.
It's a remote cabin. There's a blizzard which makes them even more isolated. The family starts seeing things and hearing strange noises that aren't really there thus paranoia.  The father slowly breaks downs mentally trying to protect his children. They are all freaked out. Then the story is wrapped up rather neatly.
