Absentia 2011

If you come to this expecting something along the lines of Saw then you will be disappointed. It is a fairly slow moving, character driven, existential horror. That said, there are a good number of scares and tense, edge of your seat scenes.

This brought back memories of the Jeeper Creeper without the big monster in it but it sure had the villain.

The Caller 2011

The premise of this movie is actually somewhat interesting, even though it’s pretty clearly “borrowed” from Frequency. I’m sure it was pitched as “Frequency meets 100 Feet (the Eric Red movie from 2008)”. It’s not the worst idea I’ve heard,

The other [...]

OK, so as part of Kevin Smith’s guerrilla marketing campaign for this movie, it aired on PPV in the US last night. That means that it was on the torrentnet this morning, and as a result I got to watch it in Europe tonight. I’m still reeling from the experience.

I really cannot understand why this movie received such awful ratings.

The Rite 2011

Sometimes you read reviews, but want to see the film so bad, you go, and because your expectations are so low. You enjoy the movie. Reviews seems to be on the good side, with earlier reviews being very bad.

Coffin 2011

Let’s just get to the chase here: this is a limp Saw clone. Nothing I say will dissuade hardcore Kevin Sorbo or Saw fans from watching this, of course, but I feel that it’s my duty to warn everyone else who’s on the fence. Normally, low budget movies with poor acting don’t bother me much [...]
