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.

Death Watch (1980)

Starring: Harvey Keitel, Romny Schneider, Hearry Dean Stanton, Max Von Sydow
Director: Bertrand Tavernier


Premise:
A reporter is hired by a television producer to have a camera installed in his eye and follow a terminally ill woman around until she dies. The footage will then be shown on a popular television show.

My Take:
A rather conceptual movie with an interesting premise that was a bit ahead of it's time. Especially since there's so many "reality shows" out now. It drags a bit a times, but the outstanding cast pulls the viewer through to the end. It could only be a matter of time before the idea in this movie becomes true.

Rating: In the middle
