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.

Starring: Ashliegh Cummings, Emma Booth, Stephen Curry
Director: Ben Young


Premise:
A young girl is abducted by a couple. She realize the only way to survive is to get her two unstable captors to turn on each other.

My Take:
A gripping a disturbing movie that reminds the viewer that one never knows what goes on behind closed doors of those houses in your neighborhood. The movie manages to be brutal without ever crossing a line to seem over the top into "torture porn" level. It's very realistic and harrowing.

Rating: So Good

Personal Shopper (2017)



Starring: Kristen Stewart
Director: Olivier Assayas


Premise:
A medium/personal shopper for a rich woman awaits a message about the afterlife from her twin who recently died. She begins receiving strange text messages but it seems to be from another person.

My Take:
The movie tries to build up tension but ultimate it rather tame, as is the one true paranormal scene. It's sort of hovers around does it want to be about a sister in mourning or a stalker thriller. It's a slow paced film that wont be for all viewers.

Rating: In the middle

Watched: Showtime
