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.

The Harrowing

Author: Alexandra Sokoloff

Five students stay in their college dorm over Thanksgiving Break. In their boredom the group accidentally conjures up a malaevolent spirit.

My Take:
The author does a great job of taking a familiar tale and making it into much more than anticipated ghost story. This makes the final two acts of the novel a very quick read. The characters are flushed out with nice, individual details. All of this made me a satisfied reader at the end.

Rating:  So Good
