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 Lonely Bones (2009)

The Lovely Bones

Director: Peter Jackson
Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, Stanley Tucci

A young girl is murdered and is trapped in the after life. She spends her days watching her loved one grieve while the murderer remains free.

My Take:
If this wasn't a Peter Jackson movie, I probably would have passed on watching. While the movie relies heavily on drama there are some frightening things. Stanley Tucci's performance is bone chilling. A refreshing take having the story be told through the point of view of the dead girl.
And no, I've never read the book either.

Rating: In the middle (with an upside)
