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.

Sightseers (2013)

Starring: Steve Oram, Alice Lowe
Director: Ben Wheatley


Premise:
A couple take a trip across Great Britian in his RV. She's mentally troubled due to her mother's mental abuse over the years and he is a killer with a rage issue. Soon both of these traits come to the surface and the couple is forced to work through each other's problems.

My Take:
Director Ben Wheatley makes another incredibly interesting flick by throwing horror elements into unlike genres, this time a relationship drama with a sadist twist. There are a lot of awkward moments between the characters as they figure out how to deal with each other and geniune tenderness. A lot of underlying comedy in the situations too. The two leads are outstanding and their journey leads to a conclusion which completely caught me off guard. One of my favorite horror films of the year.

Rating: So Good
