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.

Cheap Thrills (2014)

Starring: Pat Healy, Ethan Embry, David Koechner, Sara Paxton, Amanda Fuller
Director: E.L. Katz


Premise:
A man who is behind on his rent, just fired from his job, and not sure how he will support his family runs into an old friend at a bar. The two catch up and are interrupted by a couple who start daring them to do things for cash. As the night goes on and the stakes get higher, the two friends are tested on just how far they will go for cash.

My Take:
A great cast handles what appears to be a one note premise, but is actually multi-layered, with ease. And each plays the role perfectly knowing when hit the laughs, drama, and terror. The tight direction only helps to pull the viewer into this crazy world.

Rating: So Good
