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.

Under the Skin (2014)

Starring: Scarlett Johansson
Director: Jonathan Glazer


Premise:
An alien poses as a female and drives around Scotland seducing young men to feed from. After awhile she starts to develop feelings.

My Take:
A very slow and plodding movie. Basically the same thing happens over and over for the first sixty minutes. Drive around, talk to a guy, take him back to your hide out, and absorb his life force. Honestly, it is rather boring. At least the movie picks up a bit in the final act. The movie does look great from a cinematic stand point and Mrs Scarlett walks around in the buff a few times. Are those enough things to keep one's interest? That I cannot answer.

Rating: In the middle
