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 Ring Finger (2005)

AKA: L'Annulaire
The Ring Finger

Director: Diane Bertrand
Starring: Olga Kurylenko

After slicing off the end of her finger in a bottling factory, a  woman starts a new job at a laboratory that preserves "specimens". Soon she starts a relationship with her boss forcing her to deal with her life and "specimen".

My Take:
An eerie and moody drama where nothing is at it seems. People bring in a variety of "specimens" from scars to bones to music for preservation and a way of heeling themselves from painful memories. The doctor is portrayed as a caring oddball but you get the feeling of the darkness inside him. Kurylenko is amazing in this film. There is not an over abundance of dialog and the ending leaves the interpretation up to the viewer. 

Rating: So Good
