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 Reef (2010)

The Reef

Director: Andrew Traucki
Starring: Zoe Naylor, Damian Walshe-Howling

A small group of friends go sailing along The Great Barrier Reef. Their boat gets capsized on a shallow portion. They decide battle the elements and swim back to a small island a few miles back. Some dont make it back alive. 

My Take:
I enjoy shark movies. A lot. And wanted to like this one more than I did. The suspense is there as are decent characters but I can only take so much of people floating in the water, looking on the horizon, and screaming "What was that? I saw something." It got old. And after the first shark attack with a blood filling the water, more sharks should have came to check it out.

Rating: In the Middle
