I didn't even know what to expect from this film. I watched it without reading the plot and the acting seemed just like it was out of the pages of a book. I will admit I saw it after seeing a different indie film that had a similar story. This film was better and had a better story line. I didn't know what to expect because the story was so unique and one that you'd never seen before. I wasn't really sure if I would like this movie or not, but I found it to be extremely enjoyable. I'm going to see it again tomorrow and might get sucked in to the story just like I did to the movie. What I think I loved most about this film was the fact that they made a huge change from the first film. I knew it was going to be a bit different and that the first film was too easy. So when I found out it wasn't as easy as it seemed to be it seemed like a bit more work and thought went into this film. The second thing that I loved about the movie is that it wasn't trying to be another John Wick. It wasn't trying to be a new take on the same old formula. This movie was trying to be something different. The story was new, the story line was fresh and not as cliche and predictable as some other action films I have seen. I also think the acting was better than I thought it would be. I thought that the cast was a bit large and some people might be able to see them as acting by now. But, the acting was great. I really enjoyed all of the characters and how they portrayed them. Especially Jason Statham was good and had a good amount of substance to him. Some of the characters in this movie weren't as great but were still good enough to put you off a bit but not enough to completely ruin the movie. The cinematography was great. Everything from the locations to the way the film was filmed was amazing. The way the camera's were set was great. The first film had a great setting but the second film had a better looking set and the film was more realistic. The director didn't try to make a game out of the first film and he didn't try to make a cool new movie. This is the first movie where I can't remember any of the music at all, which I think is a good thing. It made the movie seem real because it wasn't trying to have everything sounding exactly the same as the first film. In conclusion, this is my first review of a movie I haven't actually watched but the reason why I watch movies is because it helps me discover movies and I'm very interested in films, whether or not they make sense.

Well, I had not seen the movie until it was shown in New York City recently. And I thought it was one of the scariest movies I had seen in a long time! A total package. John Travolta is a good actor, but not the best. The other characters in this movie were all really interesting. I was really fascinated by Robert Neville, one of the main characters. I was really impressed by him. I really enjoyed the movie. Don't think this movie is for everyone. But if you want a good movie, you should see this one. I was happy to have seen it.

This movie has to be the best Sci-Fi movie of the 80's.I think that the use of color is very appropriate to the story. The costumes are very stylish and the music is very good. The only thing that I would change is the ending, it seems a bit like a rip off of Close Encounters. Also, the movie does have a good ending but you still have to think of how you would get back home after a spaceship crash. I give this movie 9/10

The early, very murky atmosphere of this film makes it seem that it's setting is really dark and underdeveloped, but actually it's not. In fact, it's extremely well written and tells a real story, which works just fine, at least for me. When you go in expecting a dream-like, tense supernatural horror movie, you're going to be disappointed. However, if you were expecting a genre of film, this will be right up your alley. The premise is intriguing, the set-up is in place, and the film follows the standard 'kid, mom and older sister goes missing and the culprit is of supernatural origin' script. The director (Catherine Hardwicke) is a very good choice for this movie, as she handles the subject matter well. The cinematography is solid, the music works really well, and there's plenty of natural atmosphere and tension. The sound is very well done, as it does a great job of creating a dark, foggy atmosphere. There's enough gore and nudity for the most part, but it's not over-the-top gore. The plot and character development are also interesting, as the characters are realistic and add to the character development of the story. The film is very well done and a worthwhile watch. I would recommend this film to anyone looking for a good, suspenseful horror movie, and those looking for a fantastic story that works.

My fellow reviewers are right. This movie is not about the supernatural or the supernatural phenomenon, but about the human beings. And the humanity of our parts, which is being infected with something, and perhaps even the whole human race. They need to eradicate this virus, the only way to do that is to completely isolate the humans from the virus. But after a while, things don't go well, there's trouble at work, a party girl gets infected and she starts to kill the people that have it, and of course, a friend of the infected friend gets infected and starts to kill the people who have it. The virus finally finds its way to the man who has it, he's stuck in the same town that everyone has. It's a very unique movie with many twists and turns, but not in a cheesy way. There are many sad moments, a nice ending and some surprises. The last scene of the movie really keeps me laughing. Although I personally love thriller movies, this is a great one and it won't let me down.

The movie was pretty good. Some of the acting was bad and the story was a little corny. But it was a good thriller. I really like the creepy scenes where he was talking to the old lady. I don't want to give anything away but if you like horror movies you should check this one out.

I was very intrigued by this movie after reading the summary. I have never seen a vampire movie, but I read the reviews and it sounded interesting so I rented it. I have to say it was very entertaining. The story was original and kept me entertained. The movie had an interesting story line that kept me guessing. The actors were very good. The special effects were good, but not great. It kept me interested throughout the movie. I enjoyed the story line and the action scenes. I also enjoyed the music. I was not disappointed. I give this movie an 8 out of 10. It was worth the watch.

Stalked for years by the alien that was taken from them, the humans have erected barriers between themselves and the aliens to protect them from them. But when two young aliens are found, they are taken back to Earth by their human creators, and they realize that they are the next generation of the kind that was taken. When they find out that their creators are evil, they take their new power, in order to stop them and their creators from wiping out the Earth. The fact that this film is set in the future, the arrival of the aliens to Earth is very shocking, and the fact that the aliens want to get their revenge, and have no rules and no laws is very scary. So when the humans catch them, you think "Ok, they can't just kill them on the spot, they might attack us" And they do, but then they discover that the humans have these technology, and they use it in their own ways. So the thing is that there are no rules, and what's going to be the best way to stop the aliens is completely random. And you can't just come to the earth, and change the rules, that might be a little dangerous to Earth. And the fact that the aliens have made rules that seem to be completely random is also very scary. But overall, the movie is very interesting, and the ending is very good. You know how all the rules in the movie just happened to be a little coincidence. But the truth is that, is it? That is just the end of the movie, and it is a great ending. But there are no rules in this movie, so you have to go and figure that out yourself, and you can't just trust the movie as a rule of the universe, no, you have to decide for yourself what the rules are. You have to figure it out for yourself, that is the best way to go about it. And this is a very good movie that is worth watching.

After getting off a violent attack by a group of male teenagers, a man's soul is sucked into a black hole. All that remains is his conscience. My reaction was one of loathing for mankind. It was the coldest place on the planet and there was no sun. I also found it sad that there was no time for his thoughts. He had to torture his soul before he died. After that he was reduced to nothing more than a man of flesh and bones. A man. But he still lived. He continued to experience life and death. He continued to feel pain. He was cut in pieces. And in the end, he still managed to feel pain. All that was left for him was to feel pain. What does that tell you? Does it tell me that I don't like life? No, it tells me that life is important and I need to live it. I didn't even need to spend a whole life living a life of pain. He felt pain. I'm grateful for this film. I thank the writer, director, and actors for putting so much thought into this film. I also thank the director for using something I know very little about and creating something I can get used to. I can relate to this movie because I'm now a man and I see something that I was afraid of. I don't know how I feel about it, but I can relate to the idea of living a life of pain. I can relate to the feeling of pain. This movie made me want to do something that I normally wouldn't. I wanted to watch a movie that I thought was horrible and even though it was bad, I wanted to watch it because it was good. I want to watch movies that I think are awful and even though they're awful, I want to watch them because they're good. I don't want to watch a movie because it's bad, I want to watch a movie because I can relate to it. This is why I was so surprised that this movie made me feel so much. It made me want to live a life of pain and pain makes me feel pain. I want to live a life of pain. I'm grateful for this movie and I thank God for this movie because it gave me a reason to live life.

One of the great things about the sci-fi genre is that almost every movie has a strong origin story, and this one has one of the strongest ones in any movie. The movie starts out with an insane woman named Sharon who is not really a scientist, but is more of a drug addict and a woman who has an open relationship with her boyfriend, except she is obsessed with sex and violence. As time goes by, the doctor that is supposed to treat Sharon goes missing, and Sharon goes into a mental hospital. After she gets out, she decides to go back to her old life, and to this end she leaves the hospital to go to a bar, where she goes to drink and get drunk with a group of drunk guys, one of whom is Warren. I won't spoil the ending of the movie for you. The other guy she is in love with, Ryan, is there, and they fall in love, and when the doctor comes back he takes her back to the hospital, and she finds out that Sharon has been cheating on Ryan. The movie was very tense, and kept you on the edge of your seat. I thought the music score was very good, as well as the effects. If you like the genre, then you will enjoy this movie.

I remember seeing this movie in the theaters when it came out. I thought the idea of the black hero was great and I loved the camera work. So when I watched it the other night, I was pretty surprised to find that it was really, really good. I'm not sure what it was about this film but it was definitely different. It was suspenseful and scary. The effects were very good and the script was extremely good. It was a good movie with a great ending and great acting.

Easily the best film I have seen from the Director of 'The Devil's Rejects'. I love the scene where Paul Thomas Anderson directs the police as they arrest a character. They tell him: "Who are you? What are you doing here?" The scene has been used in every David Lynch film, 'Wild at Heart', 'Mulholland Dr'. It has the power to terrify the audience. A film that makes us think and feel about the moral implications of our choices. Also.much dialogue that is so well written it will have you laughing and wondering "what would I say?". The film also has a great cast and it is no surprise that Tilda Swinton has appeared in this one. It is great to see Cameron Diaz in a role that was not at all written for her. It is a shame that Tilda does not appear in more movies as her acting and characterisation in 'The Devil's Rejects' is the best ever. Again a film that is only mentioned in passing, but definitely worth a look.

I read a lot of negative comments on this movie, and I agree with most of them. But I found the movie rather moving. It made me think about my own death, about the effects of suicide, about the nature of death, and about my own need to be loved. I was reminded of the many stories I've heard about people who have tried to commit suicide and who eventually succeed. But I think the most powerful part of the movie was the ending. I can't remember the last time I was so moved by a movie. It was a true piece of art. I was also surprised at the amount of gore, I hadn't expected that. But it was done so tastefully and with such a message, it wasn't gratuitous. The movie is very well done, and I highly recommend it to anyone who can handle gore.

I thought the movie was quite good, and the acting was great, the music was awesome, the story was good. I liked how the movie portrayed ghosts and the paranormal in a realistic way. The ending was good, but the movie would've been better if they'd shown more of the ghosts and less of the paranormal. Overall, I thought the movie was good and I'm looking forward to seeing it again. 8/10

That is what this movie is all about. You have the creeps, the good guys, and the creeps trying to get what they want. It's a slow-burn but it is one of the best thrillers I have seen in a while. I gave it an 8 out of 10. But that's only because of the ending. It's really cool.

This is a different take on horror. I was pretty skeptical but I was happy I saw it. If you like "End of Days" then you will like this one. Not the best film out there but better than the crap we see today.

Tenderly crafted and thoughtfully acted, only this time they've taken a visual effect approach to a film, all the more effective because of its approach. The first half of the film is devoid of visual flair, and only when we do get to see all the zombies are fully visible. As a result, some scenes feel tedious, but in a way that is completely understandable. The second half has some of the best scenes of the entire film. The film has a great, brilliant, moment or two, but more often than not it comes off as a bit lazy, which is what you'd expect with such a delicate subject. Once the "group therapy" is over, the director relies on long shots of characters staring and looking through cameras for the last half hour or so. I didn't mind this too much, I just couldn't help thinking "what was that for?" It seemed to fall down a bit towards the end, as if it was trying to make a statement about the relationship between artists and the people who depend on them, but it came off as a bit of a dull performance and unnecessary. I don't know if the acting was bad or not, but I was also quite bored and just looking for something to do in the end. Still, I'm glad I saw it. It wasn't a horrible film, but it definitely wasn't a brilliant film either. If you like the classic slasher film, this is probably for you.

The movie "Whiteout" is an odd mix of sci-fi and horror that, for the most part, works. The atmosphere, set in a small town, feels very claustrophobic, even for a small movie. The pacing is brisk, and the characters are believable. There are no central characters, and the central cast is all there for the purpose of the story. The movie doesn't take itself too seriously, and that makes it more enjoyable. It feels like a "found footage" movie, and that adds to the feeling of suspense. If you like mystery or thriller films, this is a movie that will be fun.

If you haven't watched this movie before, watch it now. It's not at all what you expected. I wouldn't suggest that you rent it or buy it, as this is a movie that you need to experience. But if you don't mind that, watch it, and maybe you'll have a great time watching this. It's a fantastic movie. It's not for everyone, but it's worth it. This is a great movie. It is scary. It is suspenseful. It is bloody. It is a movie that is worth seeing. It is a movie that you can't expect anything else from, but it's definitely worth it.

I love Stephen King movies. I am one of the few people who even enjoy all of his books, and most of his movies. The Shining is the only one of the King movies I had trouble getting into. I tried to understand the book, but the movie just didn't seem to have much to do with the story. I thought the director, while good in his previous movie, was bad in this one. It's not one of King's best, but it's pretty good. So, I saw it on TV recently, and I was really pleased. There were a couple of pretty major things I loved, but there were also a couple of things I hated. First, I loved how they dealt with the whole family thing, but then they went in the other direction and started getting into the kid's life. That was confusing. It didn't seem like the movie was trying to do a different kind of thing, and it just seemed like a different story altogether. The second thing I hated was how they basically went back to the girl's room and said, "Honey, you got a ghost, are you scared?" Now, I know what this was all about, but I still hated it. It didn't help that the girl died before the movie started. Then again, it wasn't a good scene. It felt like a waste of time. The last thing I hated was how they always showed the kids in black and white, and when they had to change the color of the frame, it was always in black and white. It was confusing. I know that if they were trying to show all the different colors, that would have been fine. I just didn't like it, and that is why I didn't give this movie a full 10 stars. I guess, in the end, the kids will be watching it for kids, and I don't know how they are going to react to it. Some people might say they hate it because of the different colors. I think the black and white really helps them to separate the story from the reality. It is a movie that takes place in a very dark house. You don't see a lot of things in the movie, which is very effective. It is a very well-made movie. It is well-made because of Stephen King, who is at the top of his game. He really knows how to keep it exciting. The kids are really good. Jack is perfect for this type of role. I really loved the book, and I am glad they did this movie. It has a good story, and it is a very good movie. I will probably see it again when it comes out on DVD.

The film starts with a generic, but interesting theme, the future being either in the hands of corporations or the government. Which makes it interesting to see how it progresses, to see the characters change. We see the protagonist grow up, and the antagonist change over time. The characters are fascinating and the action is exciting. It seems like a mix of a young adult movie and a science fiction movie, which doesn't really work. The plot is a bit predictable and the ending is terrible. It's a fairly good movie, but it has its flaws. The movie gets a 7 from me. It is pretty good.

Hitchcock wrote films that set a mood of suspense, horror, and mystery with his distinctive dialogue and music, which was actually used by Universal as the soundtrack for the 1974 film "The Exorcist". As I understand it, Universal considered the film to be so controversial that the rights to it were relinquished to CBS. They would go on to use the music in movies like "The Green Mile" and "The Big Chill" in the 1970s. However, CBS would later release the music and soundtrack for "The Thing" (1977), which would be the last film to use Hitchcock's original score. I was really impressed with this film and thought it was a lot better than I remembered. The plot is a lot more interesting than the film I had remembered. The film is a drama about a psychiatrist (Oscar Isaac) who comes to town to work with a former patient (Joaquin Phoenix) who has been affected by alien abductions. However, after Isaac and his wife leave the house they find that it is haunted by an entity that has taken over the house. The entity, called the 'Hitchcock', talks to Isaac and makes him say things like "Hello, there's a Hitchcock, how do you like it?" I'm not sure if it's because I hadn't read the novel (it was based on a story by the same name) or what, but I was really surprised by the film's atmosphere. The music in the film is actually used in more than one scene and it seems to get better as the film progresses. The atmosphere of the film is creepy, eerie, and ominous. The score is used in the most appropriate places, as well as the direction and cinematography. The only negative thing I have to say about this film is that it's not very scary. In fact, it's the first film I have ever been able to sit through without turning the movie off. However, this film is not as scary as I expected. It's one of those films that could have been a lot scarier if the film had been made by a different director. Overall, "Hitchcock" is a very good film, but it has a few flaws that I can't overlook. I give it an 8/10.

In the beginning of the film, a little boy with long black hair, presumably a boy of around 15 years of age, was standing on the edge of a roof top in a white raincoat and carrying a bundle. He was the only survivor of a house fire that was reported in a quiet, residential neighbourhood. He was seen walking slowly down the street towards the scene of the fire. He was the only person who saw a fire, and they were all dead. This story, told to me by a local who had lived in the neighbourhood for many years, was a little different to what I had been told. He was a little boy who had gone missing at the age of three, and the mother had moved in with the family, but he never returned. He had lived in the house for many years, but had no idea that the house had a history of fire. He said that his parents were young, but had a few issues with their upbringing. He seemed to believe that the house had a supernatural fire, and had the ability to see it. This house was located in a quiet neighbourhood, and there were no other residents in the area. It is the only home that I know of in which a fire has been reported. The film showed many scenes of the house burning, and the fireman and fire inspector who was called to the scene of the fire seemed to be treating the house as if it were the case. The mother seemed to be telling her children, as well as her husband, that they would be okay, as long as they returned home safely. They seemed to have no idea that the house was built in the 1930's, and that it was built in a period of time that was in the process of being destroyed. This film is quite effective and very well made. I found it fascinating to hear the stories of people who were in the neighbourhood at the time, and what happened to them. It was a very disturbing film, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in a good thriller or thriller-horror film.

I saw the trailer for this film and was immediately interested. I saw it last night and was really impressed. I thought that it was a unique concept and was glad that I was able to see it. The acting was very good. The setting was really good and the cinematography was excellent. The story is unique and intriguing. It's hard to put into words what this movie is about, but I will say that the film does explore some really dark themes about an internet addiction. It does have a bit of a twist at the end. If you are looking for a well-acted film with a twist, then I would recommend you give this film a chance. If you are looking for a well-written and well-directed film, then this film is definitely not for you.
