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 Monitor (2011)

AKA: Babycall

Starring: Naomi Rapace, Kristoffer Joner
Director: Pål Sletaune


Premise:
An over protective and emotionally fragile mother starts to hear sounds of abuse through a newly bough baby monitor which causes her to become paranoid about her recent past.

My Take:
A stylish film is bogged down a tad by the an average story. It's fairly simple to figure out what is going on and what the outcome will be. The positives are plenty however and witnessing a powerhouse performace by Rapace as she breaks down emotionally as time ticks away is worth the viewing alone.

Rating: In the middle
