Scary Movie Reviews M
:: Maggie :: 2015 :: Henry Hobson ::
Ugh. What a tedious movie. Is she ok? She’s ok (but she’s not). It’s been a day, is she ok? She’s ok (but she’s not). Just over and over again. To its credit, this film doesn’t claim to be a horror movie, so I shouldn’t have expected it to be. But wow. It just drudged on, and Arnold is looking a little worse for the wear. I found the acting to be underwhelming, the story to be odd, and guess what guys? You can’t force an atmosphere by recording everything in a cold light. Dark Was the Night did it, but they committed. Everything was blue - blue, dammit! Anyway, way off topic. I found this film to be just genuinely lackluster. And kind of long. I don’t think I would recommend watching it, unless you want to be bored and not scared. Mostly bored.

Hey! Not a bad start to a movie! They could have done a few things even better. Movies are formulaic, which is why the best ones always leave us guessing - they break the mold. This could have done with some mold breaking. I could have done without the unnecessary storyline. Don’t care about his family, or his producer’s. I think this could have been a much stronger movie if they followed their instinct and started with him out in the wild. Play up the psycho fan idea. That was way more interesting. Anyway, still not that bad. I had fun watching it, paid attention the whole time. Would I watch it again? Probably not. But way better than most of what’s offered on Netflix.
P.S. Why is the movie called Man Vs., but his show in the movie called Woods Vs.?
:: Mercy :: 2014 :: Peter Cornwell ::
Not a terrible movie, but nothing to write home about. Based on a Stephen King story, so you know it can’t be THAT bad, but he has a lot of mediocre storylines, so there’s real potential for it to not be great. Special effects seemed pretty bad for 2014, distractingly so. Felt a little made-for-TV. Kids go to stay with grandma, she’s been possessed, little boy has to fight the devil in order to save the souls of everyone ever. Also, P.S., Cthulhu. What? Anyway. I bet the short story’s much scarier. All-in-all, this isn’t the worst movie to watch, particularly if you’re stuck at home and flying through movies you’ve never seen.
