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.

Only Lovers Left Alive (2014)

Starring: Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Walsikowska, Anton Yelchin, John Hurt, Jeffrey Wright
Director: Jim Jarmusch

An underground musician (and vampire) is depressed with the living world. He reunites with his lover (also a vampire) who hopes to pull him out of his funk. After her sister (another vampire) unexpectedly arrives and causes chaos, the couple must retreat to another home.

My Take:
A stylish drama that just happens to have vampires for the main characters. Though it does add a little twist vampire lore. Jarmusch always makes interesting films and this no exception, though there is a good chance it willy turn away horror fans. Awesome soundtrack.

Rating: So Good
