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.

Prisoners (2013)

Starring: Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Maria Bello, Terrence Howard, Viola Davis, Paul Dano, Melissa Leo
Director: Denis Villeneuve

Two small girls are abducted and the police's main suspect is released due to lack of evidence. The father of one of the children doesn't accept it and kidnaps the man. He tortures him to try and find out the truth. In the meantime the head detective works the case.

My Take:
This gritty and intense film is at times hard to watch as the viewer feels the raw emotion from the parents. And the mystery of what actually happened to the children is winding road which keeps one guessing. The movie isn't without some faults, especially the last few minutes, but it is an emotional ride. 

Rating: So Good
