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.

Neon Demon (2016)

Starring: Elle Fanning, Jena Malone, Bella Heathcote, Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Alessandro Nivola, Desmond Harrington, Abbey Lee
Director: Nicolas Winding Refn

A young girl comes to LA to be a model. Soon she starts making waves but not before making other models wanting the "it factor" she seems to possess.

My Take:
Honestly not much happens in the movie for the first hour. And the intensity that does ramp up in the third act really comes out of nowhere. As with all movies by the director the movie contains beautiful cinematography and color palette against scenes of violent outburst (both physical and emotional). The end results is a movie that may be interesting but fails to be engaging.

Rating: In the middle

Watched: Netflix DVD
