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.

Found (2012)

Starring: Gavin Brown, Ethan Philbeck, Phyllis Munro, Louie Lawless
Director:Scott Schrimer

A loner kid who enjoys horror movies and is bullied at school finds out his teenage brother is a serial killer. The kid wonders if it runs in the family and tries to reconnect with his brother in hopes of getting him to stop killing.

My Take:
Sometimes one watches a movie that disturbs the hell out of you. For me, it doesn't happen much. When it does, the story is almost always guaranteed to push some sort of boundaries (as excellent horror movies do). This movie really digs deep into the psyche of a young child and the family dynamic. It's a slow, engrossing movie that when it brings the gore, goes all out. It actually has one of the sicker scenes I've seen in awhile. The story (and at time poor acting) is sure to turn away many viewers, but I think this is a fantastic first effort by the director who is now on my watch list.

Rating: So Good

Watched: Netflix DVD Rental
