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.

The Following, Season 2 (2014)




Starring: Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Shawon Ashmore, Natalie Zea, Connie Nielsen, Jessica Stroup, Valorie Curry, Sam Underwood, Leslie Bibb, Tiffany Boone, Valerie Cruz


Premise:
Season two has Ryan Hardy, now a drunk, teaching at a university until a copy cat cult comes out and starts committing murders on the anniversary of Joe Carroll's death. Hardy thinks Carroll is still alive and some how behind the new murders. Joe is in fact alive and in hiding but wants to find out who is killing in his name. Eventually their paths lead to a wealthy woman and her family of psychopaths.

My Take:
How many different cults and serial killers can you throw at the viewer in one season? It sort of ridiculous the twists and turns in season two. And once again the FBI is always one step behind the master plan of Joe. Too many coincidences happen that bail out the killers just in time and render authorities and Ryan Hardy helpless and clueless. While I still enjoy the two main actors go at it, the rest of the story has gotten too out of control for me. When season 3 comes around, this viewer may not be following any more. There is simply too many other far superior shows out there.

Rating: In the middle (and I am being generous)
