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.

Evil Things (2011)

Starring: Laurel Cassillo, Elyssa Mersdorf, Torrey Weiss
Director: Dominic Perez


Premise:
A group of college friends head up to a secluded house in upstate New York to celebrate one of their birthdays and soon find themselves stalked an unknown assailant.

My Take:
When a "found footage" movie is not done correctly, it comes off as a lazy and cheap attempt at a quick buck by its makers. Case in point is Evil Things. The only remotely interesting part comes while the kids are driving to their destination and get in a cat and mouse with a mysterious van. Of course the horrible dialog and character reactions take away from the tension. And those traits follow throughout the movie which leads to a lot of pointless screaming at darkness by the characters.
The movie is annoying and extremely boring at best.

Rating: Steaming Pile
