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.

Dawning (2009)

Starring: Jonas Goslow, Najarra Townsend
Director: Greg Holtgrewe

A brother and sister head up to see their father and step-mother in a remote cabin. A stranger breaks screaming about something chasing him. The night goes from bad to worse as this unseen entity attacks them all.

My Take:
Minimalistic horror which is derived from the situation and tension from the unknown evil present lurking. The approach only works for so long. Mainly because the characters make poor decision and flip from bickering to telling each other what to do. I feel like with stronger characters this movie would have stood out. Instead it's forgettable.

Rating: In the middle (with a slight warning)
