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.

Byzantium (2013)

Starring: Saoirse Ronan, Gemma Atkinson, Johnny Lee Miller, Sam Riley, Caleb Landry Jones
Director: Neil Jordan


Premise:
Two women are constantly on the run from the mysterious Brotherhood turn up in coastal town where one makes friends with young man and tells him the pairs secret.

My Take:
An inventive twist on vampire lore which is beautiful filmed and paced. It adds just the right amount of drama and eerie mystery as it bounces between the women's origin and their current lives. Also extremely well acted by all involved.

Rating: So Good
