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.

Twixt (2012)

Starring: Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning, Ben Champman
Director: Francis Ford Coppola

Premise:
A writer stops in a small town on a book tour and gets caught up in a murder mystery.

My Take:
This movie just feels like a mess. There's a washed up alcoholic writer with financial problems. A crazy ass sherrif who wants to colaborate with the writer on a book about murders happening in his town. The writer is visited by the ghost of Edgar Allen Poe who helps him detail the story, which is the center of the town's oldest mystery. And let's not forget about the child ghost who visits him. Throw that mix in with complete strangness of the secondary characters and its gets to be too much. To me, all of those issues could have been looked over if not for the typical bailout ending which is much closer to the writers personal grief than he expected. Yawn!
