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.

Bereavement (2011)

Director: Steven Mena
Starring: Michael Biehn, Brett Rickaby, Alexandra Daddario

A prequel to above average serial killer flick Malevolence. Starts with Allison moving to the country to live with her uncle's family after her mother and father died. He lives down the road from the infamous slaughterhouse. She sees a young boy in the abandoned building and gets curious. The young boy is Martin, who was kidnapped by a serial killer and is forced to watch him torture and kill people.

My Take:
I left with the same feeling as the first movie. I enjoyed it, but some minor, logical flaws kept me from thinking it was really awesome. Still the movie asks some good questions and is better than most. If you liked Malevolence, watch this one.

Rating: In the Middle (with a lot of positives)
