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.

Bait (2012)

Starring: Julian McMahon, Xavier Samuel, Alice Parkinson
Director: Kimble Rendall


Premise:
A sudden tsunami traps a group of people in a grocery store with a very large great white shark.

My Take:
The strength in this flick lies in the fairly well developed characters. You kind of get attached to them which helps as suspense builds towards the final scenes. The weakness of the movie is a rather silly ass conclusion to the group's escape and a common gripe I have with most 3D movies watched in 2D - the effects looked bad. All in all, it rises above the B movie trap and is worth a watch.

Rating: In the middle
