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.

A Song After Dark

Author: Grant Palmquist


Premise:
A loner from a strict, religious household makes friends with a popular rich kid, who has a secret and wants to mentor the new freind in his unusal ways.

My Take:
A well written tale of a spoiled kid with little guidance. He takes the school loser under his wing because he feels they are similar individuals. He exposes the loser to his views of the world and shows him a world of women and drugs.  Slowly he manipulates the loser until he is ready for the final test. Killing another human. The two main character are fleshed out to great details as the point of view changes with each chapter. The ending felt a bit rushed and the outcome was clearly seen early.

Rating: In the middle
