Finnish-made (English speaking) horror movie that stars the band Lordi as demons that possess a hospital with unsuspecting occupants unlucky to enter the wrong corridor that leads them to an evil alternate dimension.
It's just pure, awesome fantasy horror. Superb special effects, especially for make up and costume design.
One of those movies that looks like it was churned out to capitalise on 'found footage' etc (which it clearly is). However, it has a level of spooky intrigue that really pays off and you're interested to see where it's going. Coupled with a genuine paranormal ancient ghost character, it really has some terrific moments.
A few predictable and "you wouldn't do that" moments don't take away from the genuine entertainment ride this film has!
Ok, so the sequels sucked but the original V/H/S was a freakin masterpiece with some incredible indie-made short horror films that had the variety and intensity, as well creativity and oddness that made this collection of shorts a hell of a watch.
When you watch it, try and decide which was your favourite. Then realise you can't quite decide on which!
DIGGING UP THE MARROW
The perspective from which the movie is made from really blurs the line from whether you're watching found footage/a documentary style movie, all while being an entertaining ride in itself. Coupled with a really intriguing storyline, and actualisation of characters with great imagination and make-up, this is something really different and well worth a watch.
So are we actually gonna see anything or what... oh crap we are... OH CRAP!
I waited freakin AGES for this movie to release. It's super indie-low-budget and it's an incredible watch that actually gets better the further in it goes. It was exciting to see all the zom-bots (Zombie Nazi Robots) which was the initial appeal, but as the story goes deeper into the doctor behind it all, it becomes a real survival tale and 'will he make it out alive?'
This movie is both ridiculous, yet compelling and fun/realistic science fiction at the same time.
The Cabin In The Woods
It's Joss Whedon, it's a take on popular horror movie tropes and culture. It's awesome. It's a dark comedy storyline that includes everything you love about Whedon's ideas mixed with popular culture.
Only downside - Why was this movie not 10 hours or long or made into a TV series!? So many horror icons I wanna see!
Holy fuck this movie is dark. It's real dark, it's kind of a comedy but really not. A man obsessed with the memory of a Walrus, who also happens to be bat-shit crazy and the tale of someone wanting to exploit him. What happens, is just insane.
When you see it, you can't believe you've seen it, but it's happened and it's fucking awful.
Best videogame-to-movie adaptation there is. The movie really captures the spooky, eerie feel of Silent Hill, the game and the story as well as some great special effects of characters and locations/sets.
It's superbly made, acted and shot. It's a quality movie from start to finish. If you see the sequel, you'll appreciate how good 'this' movie is, because the sequel was utter crap.
This film is an intense psychological thriller. A lot of people complained this film wasn't a 'horror' but then, they probably just finished watching Paranormal Activity 4... The Babadook really does create an ongoing strain on your nerves throughout, for both the family in the movie (mother and child) and the paranormal force that haunts them. Superbly acted, shot and told.
Babadook... dook... dook
