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.

Psychoville, Season 1 (2009)

Starring: Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton

Synopsis: A group of unrelated people all receive the same note which turns their lives upside down.

My Take:

There's a good mystery which starts with extremely interesting characters (most of which are played by Shearsmith and Pemberton) getting a note reading "I know what you did" and a follow up note reading "you killed her". There is a nice dose of dark humor involved as each character tries to figure out what is going on. I didn't enjoy the series nearly as much as I had anticipated. 

Favorite Episode:
"David and Maureen" - This shining moment of the first season is very reminiscent of Hitchcock's film Rope. It's a fantastic piece of television.

Rating: In the middle
