I was afraid this film would not be up to par with the others. But as I sat down and watched, I was surprised to find that it was the best one I have ever seen. The only thing I will say is that it has a slow pace, but it is done well. In this film, a man and his girlfriend and child were killed in a train crash. A girl of unknown origin (the girl's mother) is accused of the murder, and the police investigation is handled by a detective and a "psychic" (who also happens to be a psychic) with a seemingly unstoppable case. This film contains the many elements of a great thriller. The acting, the direction, the plot, the scenery, and the "psychic" are all on point. This is a very unique film that I would recommend to anyone who likes thrillers.

I am a fan of the usual horror film fare and have seen many, many horror movies. What I liked about this movie is that it didn't feel like the same old stories with an army of killers killing people off in a twisted manner. It was also nice to see some new faces and the actors were very good. This movie was great and it kept my interest up until the very end. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes horror. Anyone who likes a good story with a horror twist to it would love this movie. I think I am going to see it again. Please see this movie!

A young woman named Ellie comes across a mysterious book that she finds in a dusty chest. Her boyfriend is the local detective and Ellie discovers that the book is a diary of a serial killer who kills the men who come to the manor for it's hospitality. This turns into a bloodbath as there is only one man who can save her, the eccentric David. I really liked this film. It has a great atmosphere, and a great story, and a great killer. It's also got some really cool scenes, and the camera work is really cool. It also has great moments with creepy music, and a great set of locations. It's worth the watch for sure. Another thing I really liked was that it's got a really cool ending. It's not just a slasher film, it's a movie that also has some really interesting ideas, and it really helps make the film interesting. Overall, it's a great horror film, and definitely one of the best.

I have to say this is my favorite movie of all time. I first saw it when I was in 8th grade, and I was truly blown away by it. The movie has many of the hallmarks of an 80s horror film: old men wearing weird hats and speaking in "old" English, women dressed in vintage fashions and garb, and the disturbing murders are so "thriller" that I was constantly on the edge of my seat. It's also a very scary movie and I have to say that it scared me more than any horror movie I've ever seen, including Hellraiser. The opening scene is a fairly disturbing scene of horror, especially considering the fact that the murder scene is set in a shopping mall. (I can't stress how terrifying it is when the murder scene is set in a shopping mall) Overall, it's a classic horror movie that everyone should see at least once. As a side note, I think there should be a new movie from the band Blur called "Back In The 90s" featuring the band M83.

This movie is really scary in a good way. I've seen this movie a number of times now, but I remember it the first time, but this time it's really good. I would recommend this movie to all the parents out there. I think they should do something to it, like make the movie longer, so we could see more of what's going on in the movie. I know it's not really "realistic", but that's not the point of the movie. The point is to scare the viewer. So if you're looking for something that is really scary, I recommend you watch this movie. It has something that other horror movies don't have, like suspense. It has some great special effects. Also the sound effects are really great, and it really adds to the intensity of the movie. So if you want to watch a good horror movie, this one is good, but I don't think it's the best horror movie ever made, but it's still good.

Now I was not expecting this film to be great when I bought it, but it is. Very well made with a really good atmosphere. All the actors do a great job, the story is ok and the ending is good too. As it was advertised, it is not scary, but i think it is the atmosphere that will help you enjoy it. Don't listen to the bad reviews, they are from people that were expecting a really great film, but will be disappointed.

I was skeptical at first about this movie because it was directed by a newcomer, but after I watched it I was convinced that he was a genius. Of course the original story, for which "Piercing" was based, is very interesting and, apart from the very thin plot, I liked this movie because it wasn't made for the average movie-goer. What makes this movie great is that it is not made for the average movie-goer, but it was made for the hardcore horror fan who is willing to jump in on the action. I haven't seen any of the other vampire movies, so I don't know what they did to the original story, but I've always had the feeling that "Piercing" would have been a much better movie. And I think that some more research on the origin of vampires and how they are actually born would have given a much better explanation for the director and his followers who insist that vampires are completely different than humans. Anyway, a great movie, and a bit scary.

The combination of two of the finest British directors in the genre: David Cronenberg and David Cronenberg together resulted in a film that is undoubtedly a very rare creature. It has an ending that is actually satisfying and leaves you feeling somewhat confident that the world will be a better place. The action and the end scene is a particular highlight of this film, as it is clearly not your run of the mill police/murder caper. I liked the way it was all set up and played out, and the story was certainly well structured. I have to confess that I really didn't like the way it ended, but it did feel a bit unsatisfying, but then again you could take all the endings that one might take and combine them together. I must admit that this film had a special place in my heart, as it made me feel a little sad, as you can probably imagine. I like seeing these type of films, so I'm glad that it has been remade. Personally I think that the ending is not that bad, it just didn't work for me, but it's not the end that I was looking for. I liked the fact that the film was different and had a twist, and I don't know if that was the right move or not. I think that the film had potential, and I think that it could have been much better than it was. As I said in the title, there are elements that I liked. I think that it was a film that was well done, and the script is very good. The acting from a lot of the cast was well done, and I do believe that the film should be re-released. I think that it has potential, and should be given a second chance. One of the main things that I liked about the film is that it was different, but still a quality film. It wasn't just another police/murder caper, it's a different story and I think that the film does have the potential to be great. I will watch this film again, and I will definitely recommend it. For me, this is a film that has more potential than I previously thought. There are elements in this film that I liked, and I feel that this is a film that is well worth watching.

Okay, I've said it before and I will say it again: not many films like this and that's a good thing. The premise and twist of the story are so interesting that I will not spoil the film. I guess the story starts off with a young man going to a haunted house for help, but he doesn't return. When he finds out that it is a house of horrors he doesn't want to enter it. He doesn't even want to leave the house. It seems to him that the house is already at war with the ghost of the dead boy, and that the ghosts have a plan of revenge on them. Also, this film is great. It has a great pace. It also has a really, really good atmosphere. It is very claustrophobic. Most of the time the atmosphere is very dark, and the only light comes from the lights. I love this movie and I think that it deserves a much higher score than it has received. I would rate it a 9 out of 10.

I remember seeing this movie on Sci-Fi channel when I was about five or six. I remember seeing this movie and being enthralled. I liked the color, the acting and I liked the story and I enjoyed the whole film. So, when I was about sixteen, I was quite excited to see this movie. I rented it, and I was very happy to see this movie again and again and again. I think you need to have a bit of maturity in your mind to enjoy the whole package of this movie. The whole experience is not to be enjoyed just once. I don't think that a twelve-year old who has never seen a movie before will enjoy this film. This film is almost like watching a video tape of a story that is being told by a tape recorder. This movie is different. I don't like the story at all. I don't like the acting. I don't like the way the whole thing is being told. But, I do enjoy the whole thing. I'm only thirteen and I can watch this film over and over again. It is like watching a dream come true. It's like watching a movie that you really like. I like the cast. I like the acting. I like the colors. I like the whole thing. The whole thing is good.

Piercing is a film about a man who comes into his own as a killer. The film plays around with many of the tropes of the slasher sub genre. The character of Travis is a unique creation that is almost a stand alone horror film. It creates a sense of loneliness and loss within Travis, leading to a more realistic sense of horror. The slasher films have their share of major plot holes, but Piercing does not have a major problem with them. Most of the elements that occur in the movie are not intended to be hidden in the plot. They just happen to be there. The film succeeds at creating suspense with the images on screen, and creating a sense of unease. The film creates a feeling of mystery that builds up to an eventual climax that is not predictable. I really enjoyed Piercing. The character of Travis was a stand out character that was worth the time to watch. Most of the cast did an amazing job at showing a good performance. The plot twists were also done well, and created a sense of unease that keeps the audience guessing. The story was very interesting, and kept you guessing throughout the movie. The writing for this movie was well done and delivered a good mystery. I really liked how the film was written. The character of Travis was interesting, and interesting story. The writing gave a realistic feel to the story, and created suspense. It was interesting how the movie was able to come up with a simple, but effective ending. The ending was really good. I enjoyed the ending in a lot of ways. It was unexpected, and left me with a sense of doubt, which is good. I also liked how the ending came about, and the ending is not a surprise. I also liked the ambiguity and mystery of the film. I liked the fact that it kept you guessing, and the ending was not a surprise. Overall, Piercing is a great movie. It is a good mystery, and suspenseful. I recommend it. The slasher films were created to be scary. This is not a slasher film, but the scenes of gore and violence were a great addition to the film.

I can't speak for this one but for some reason I found it to be superior to most of the horror films I have seen in the last 5 years. It doesn't feel like a low budget film, it's certainly not a feature film, as you see the actors in almost every scene, the production values are high, and the acting and story are top notch. I think this is the best of the horror films I've seen. There is a very strong relationship between the characters, and the tension and fear throughout the film is well done. I also liked the direction of the film. I like to think that you are in the room with the actors, and get to be part of the story. They kept the tension very high throughout the film, and I was impressed. This movie is definitely worth a watch. As a horror fan I know I'm going to see it again. So if you want a great horror film for Halloween you will definitely be pleased. I can't recommend this film highly enough.
