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.

We Need To Talk About Kevin (2011)

Starring: Tilda Swinton, John C. Reilly
Director: Lynne Ramsay

A mother believes her there is something off about her son. She has every since he was born and has a hard time connecting with him. He pushes boundaries which lead to an final event that will change their lives forever.

My Take:
This movie is a deeply disturbing and emotional ride that will stick with you well after it's over. 
Pay attention because the time line jumps between the mother dealing with the aftermath of a horrific event caused by her son and the son growing up. The mother seems disengaged and generally dislike her young son. While the son generally appears to loathe his mother and puts on a "good kid" act to others, including the father who sees nothing amiss. As the child enter his teen years his demeanor becomes even more distant and challenging until one day his premeditated plan goes into effect.
The viewer is left with no answers to why. Only a confused and grieving mother hated by the community around her.

Rating: So Good
