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.

Absentia (2011)

Starring: Courtney Bell, Katie Parker
Director: Mike Flanagan

After he husband has been missing seven years, a woman is ready to declare him "dead in absentia". Her sister comes to stay to help with the process and the baby on the way. One night the husband reappears in the same clothes he had on seven years ago.

My Take:
The movie starts off with a ghost story feel to it but turns into something much more and unexpected. The tone of the film is dark and full of despair. Also ends up offering a Lovecraftian take for the mysterious disappearances . 
The two leads play great off each other.

Rating: So Good (I really, really liked this movie)
