1400 films accomplished.
Time to go back to the past, the oldest films I can recall seeing between the ages 4 to 5 are the Godzilla movies, including the american one. This films were pure gold back then, and some of them still are. I had a lot of them on VHS, what more could a kid ask for. I still love these films to this day, even the american version , most won't agree on that with me.
Then came my obssession with Aliens and Predators, I must own thousands of dollars of merchandise for these films. I consider Alien and Aliens two of the best sci-fi movies ever made. Predator is one of those films that I would watch atleast once a week, I couldn't get enough. I had to have seen it between 70 and 80 times, come to think of it I haven't watched it in a year or two, I guess it burnt me out. I own atleast two to three copies of each of these films, even prometheus.
My crime drama intrest lasted a fair bit of time, I loved Scarface, it used to be my favourite film but now I can't even stand to watch it, the game may have had something to do with that. I eventually found my way into Martin Scorsese films, Goodfellas and all that other great stuff. The Coen brothers made some great crime films aswell, Blood Simple and No Country For Old Men, I loved those films.
Now it's time for the big dog that has yet to be de-throwned from my full attention, Horror. This is where it's at, such a large quantity of trashy garbage that I had access to via The Scream channel, to bad it's gone and has been replaced by Dusk. The very first horror film I ever bought was the ultimate edition of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, it has to be the only time I have viewed all of the special features more than once. From there on in, I was hooked and have yet to grow tired with the genre, it takes up atleast 65 percent of my film collection.
! As of april it has been de-throwned, what a shame, I'd rather watch good movies, I just can't understand why horror films can't be good also.!
!!!STATE OF HORROR FILMS: MY THOUGHTS!!!
It's a shame that we don't get good horror movies anymore, we either get generic supernatural ghost tale or low budget exploitation, all of it is garbage. I have to say I am sick and tired of seeing extreme violence, I don't care for it anymore. I am also sick of terrible characters and garbage stories. This genre is on life support, IT'S ALL GARBAGE! I want to be frightended for crying out loud, but nothing does the trick for me anymore. I am more frightened from my own stories than I am from any horror film I can think of. I know how to make the good stuff, suspence and tension are a key, it can be shocking without being gory, and it can disturb you, but the characters have to be unique and the story not so generic, it has to leave you with the sense of being horrified. You could throw in some psychological elements. I try my best to incorporate these keys into my horror stories. In short I can't wait to get out there, I think about it every day, if I die before than it would all be a joke, everything I've worked so hard to create. Who knows, maybe hollywood might be a nuclear graveyard by the time.

First I'd like to address the trailers, Hmm... I only remember the one, I guess I wasn't the only one in this boat. The audience gave some positive hype to it, the Youngin's are into it, I smell new life blood for Godzilla. For me personally, I wanted to cry because it was best thing I've experienced in a while, can't wait.
So now the film, it's Meh. It wasn't a total waste of money, but also wasn't money well spent. I'm only 18, it didn't effect me, but it effected the grown adult audience, that's not good. The two characters had only one set of emotions each. The sister was obsessed, the brother was snivelling. The beginning was boring, the middle got my attention, the 3rd act lost me completely. The two time lines running parallel was just awe-full, just show us what happens and stop trying to seem cool and brilliant, it sucks. There was no suspense or scares, or intelligent scares. Instead it used painful violence to try to put you at unease. And the whole unhappy ending, protagonist losing bit just doesn't work anymore. Same goes for the happy ending/fake out ending. The only way to get a solid reaction is to go out hard-core like.
Ghosts/scares: Sub par generic I guess, I mean I forget them already. The only part that came close to being disturbing was the mom being mutilated and chained up like a dog, but literally half a second later, and we see she is just possessed by a demon and has the intelligence of a house fly. Way to ruin that scare, I thought that was going to be some hard core stuff right there.
So that's Oculus... I think, I don't know I already forget it. It's a bad year for horror and this is the best so far, but the Godzilla trailer was awesome, go pay ten dollars to see that trailer on the big screen. ” - DustinRahksi
So this is apparently a remake of some soft core porno, you know the industry stooped low when they are remaking porn. This movie is very boring, maybe it has to do with the one dimensional characters that ooze blandness every time I see them. Maybe it's to do with the fact that the first hour doesn't make any sense. Charlotte has issues, yeah okay. Maybe it has something to do with the WTF Pre credits scene, all I know is the film jumps back and forth between reality and dream land.
All that I got out of this film is college is a pretty gross place, the women are like some torture masters. They haze fresh-mens by forcing them to strip and drink hard liquor, and if they don't comply, they are beaten. And if that's not the worst part, Charlotte is molested by some lesbian rapist, this right here showcases the soft core source material, that and about a dozen other sex and nude scenes. Then she's got this pervert co-worker breathing down her neck, he gets touchy feely and even stalks her. At this point the film showcases how unlikable all of the characters are. So Charlotte succumbs to the basic human need for sex, and lets Chris(her co worker) do the deed. But he gets killed before he can do it, was I supposed to care, I'll admit I laughed a little. At this point in the film it's pretty much twilight with all the love and BS drama between the girls and boys. So when will this end, oh another 20 minutes, I'll just skip to the end. And that's it, she kills the vampire and has a good cry, because she is going to be the new vampire, or something like that.
It's a terrible film straight from Canada, I knew that before the credits ended, it had a Canadian feel to it. I gave it a 1 out of 10, more so because it wasted my time, every thing about it is bad, and it's just a bland and uninteresting story. Gunga Gee Ga Gunga, as Elpresador would say, it's bad. ” - DustinRahksi
The teenagers in this film are so Hollywood, Chris is like the god*amn devil, she is evil incarnate. And the whole prom theme, do the kids even care about that in this day and age, I don't know that's an American thing. And the whole teacher bullying Carrie, is this for real, I have never ever seen a teacher bully or allow bullying to a student. Every single thing in this film is complete garbage, except our two leads. Mortez was very good as Carrie, but the problem with that is, she pretty much just copied Sissy Spacek's performance. She was good, but I have seen it done before, and much better at that. But I still did feel her pain, and felt bad about what happened to her. Her reaction to Tommy dying was much better here, than it was in the original. I never much cared for Mortez before, and never understood why people liked her, but considering this is the first time she has ever given a good performance, I don't have a problem with her anymore. But the one who steals the show is Julianne Moore, she surpasses the original Margret White in my opinion. When she first appeared at the school after the incident, I could just feel her presence. The gym teacher was much weaker in this film, she didn't sit right with me.
Overall, the film is very disappointing, they had a huge opportunity to update this properly to fit with modern society. But no, it plays out as if it were still in the 70's. It has it's high and lows, but it was enjoyable. But the reality is, you could just stay at home and the original, or the tormented, or anything about this subject matter for dirt cheap. ” - DustinRahksi
The plot was very sub par for a trilogy final. This film pretty much goes like this: 40 minutes of set up, 1 hour and 20 minutes until some thing happens, and 1 hour and 47 minutes of MEH-NESS. Seriously, you wait almost an hour and a half for like 2 minutes worth of monster fighting. What's the point of them putting three different monsters in this film, and have no fight scenes. It feels almost like they wanted to make a good movie, instead of a monster movie, I watched this to see monsters blow sh-t up, not some BS revenge story that is completely ridiculous.
I feel as if I should address the scene where Ayana offers herself. It's like some Japanese hentai. Let me repeat her words " Iris, I'm so hot(as she opens her blouse), what...HAHAHAHAHA? Then Iris grabs her with his tentacles. What was the deal with that, HAHAHAHAHA, I can't stop laughing. Oh yeah, the subtitles for this film are atrocious, you miss half of the dialogue because it doesn't even show up on the screen. But it is nowhere near as bad as the Godzilla vs. Megalon DVD, they pretty much just changed the dialogue for that.
I may not think to highly of this film, but that doesn't mean it's bad, it's actually very well made for a monster movie. But other than the quality, the 90's Godzilla films are much more enjoyable and fun to watch. This film is very violent, I would compare it to Godzilla vs. Destoroyah with the amount of carnage, but this film goes more into graphic detail, which is surprising.
I didn't care about any of the characters, the plot was just fine, there was no action, and it was genuinely unpleasant. But I still recommend watching it you like monster movies. ” - DustinRahksi
So, we open with Tyler, an obsessed horror fan, researching a lost horror film. His girlfriend comes in, and offers him sex. And like a complete beast, he tells her to go back to bed while he looks at his horror film. This comes into play, and bites him in the ass in a few minutes. Then we are introduced to his best friend, Tyler explains his plans to visit Alexa, the daughter of the director of the lost horror film. So he goes to find her, while his best friend goes to his friends girlfriends house, and then they adulterate. Yeah, guess who I don't want to make it through the film, these two. But that's not it, Serina tries to get the audience to feel sorry for her and root for her. She makes it out that Tyler is the bad guy, and she tries to guilt him. My god, this woman is toxic, she cheats on him, snuggles with his friend right in front of him, and she still eggs him on like they are still having a good relationship. Well she ends up getting it bad in the end. So now Tyler is with Alexa, and baby face is now on the hunt. I like the lost of the doll mask and rotten jaw bone, he means business when he looks you in the eyes. It's strange, they play him off as someone like Jason Voorhees, but he actually speaks, quite eloquently at that. What a curve ball, but he never does it after that moment, it's really strange. The Tyler character was so obsessed with finding this lost film and it's secrets, but when he gets what he wants, he turns into a little Pansy, and changes his mind, and for once shows some concern for his girlfriend who he neglects. The best friend gets killed, baby face gets killed (turns out all you had to do was poke a stick through him, and no one ever tried that before huh). Tyler finally gets to watch his precious lost film. OH, yeah Serina was raped by baby face. So her fate is to be chained up in a barn for nine months until she gives birth to bay faces child. She got the short end of the stick, poor old Serina got it bad.
I can the film was watchable, and I'll probably watch it again in the future. It's worth a watch, it better than the Michael, Jason, and Freddy remakes, that's just sad. ” - DustinRahksi
Problem 1: Kerry, the girlfriend to Brody, and I also guess to Leo too. The first few minutes we see her, I knew she was no good and was sleeping around. That's one thing, but she brings Leo( her other lover) on her boyfriends camping trip. She then continues to ignore Brody, and treat him like he is the bad guy. But that still isn't it, when Brody goes off into the woods, she takes Leo into the tent and begins having sex with him. But little miss prince throws Leo away too. And now she is all mad, and upset. But that still isn't it, when Brody tries to take her safely out of the woods, she stabs him to death, then cries for him to come back. Kerry is one of thee worst female characters in horror history, you just can't wait for her to get her come up-ins, but we don't even get to see it.
Problem 2: There is maybe about two minutes of exposition about the woods, and it isn't even well done. We have no fear, or understanding of what is happening because it doesn't even set up the horror properly. Compare that to The Blair Witch Project, we get tons of background history and stories about the woods, and the witch. We know to be afraid of the woods, and know it is a bad place to be. But here, we don't get jack. This movie focuses more on enraging you over an adulterer girlfriend, so don't care about 2/3rds of the characters, and we have no proper set up. This film fails so hard it's not even funny, I think they added the horror aspect as an after thought.
This movie is just a sad and anger fuelled mess. So as usual, stay away. ” - DustinRahksi
The actions/characters: The school girl daughter put's her family in danger because she wants to get laid. The son puts his family in danger because he has a 12 IQ. The mother puts the family in danger because she is the most useless piece of sh-t this side of the San Andreas. The father is the only rational one, but even he succumbs to his family's p-ssy face nature. Seriously, they live in a ultra violent world, and all they worry about is green peace. I have never screamed so loud and so viciously at a film in my entire life, but these characters had me pulling out my hair. The whole film centers on them having to hand over a bum to the strangers wannabes, even when they tie the bum up, they cry like babies about it. They would rather die to psychopaths, than hand over some bum they have never seen before. This is a world of Psychopaths, people cut for survival, or wimpy losers. And that whole family were a bunch of babies. They even got involved with a death plot by their neighbours who try to kill them. But the bum comes back and saves them and turns the tide. What do they do, let them walk. Yeah, your destroyed house and dead husband must be thrilled about that choice. That wife needed a good smacking from Ethan Hawke, same with the boy, and the daughter, even that stupid little robot needed some too.
This was the dumbest, most idiotic, piece of trash I have ever seen, and I have watched a lot of Asylum films, wow. And you want to know the worst part about it, there's going to be a sequel. Hands down thee worst main stream horror film of 2013, congratulations. I give it a 0 out of 10 stars. ” - DustinRahksi
VHS had it's moments, I liked it. It was a neat little anthology film, but it was a bad movie in every way, shape and form. Well people seemed to like this one, so I thought it was going to be better. But no, people don't know what they are talking about.
Prolouge: We get a weak setup with some private detective filming a overly graphic sex scene. His new assignment, find some introvert that holds obviously doesn't interact with any one, but people seam to know when he is extra reclusive. So these two investigators break into his home, and start watching his VHS tapes for some reason. The script probably took 3 days to write, the actors must have just been pulled off the street. I had Breaking bad playing in the background on AMC, it was good to have on, because this movie was incredibly boring. Here we go.
Segment 1: As soon as this began, I knew the movie was going to suck. Some guy gets a robotic camera eye installed into his head. Little does he know, it will cause him to see dead people. Huh, that sounds familiar, Oh yeah "The Eye" already did that. So this guy hides in the bathroom every time he gets scarred, and the ghosts never go after him in there, and they only show up at night, so he could just sleep in the bathroom. There problem solved guy, or you could just blindfold yourself. But no, he lets some random chick into his house. She blabs about how she has the same problem. Her uncle shows up, and the only way to get rid of him is for her to rape the guy with the camera eye. The second she put hers hands on her clothes, my eyes rolled to the back of my head, of course they had to put this in, whatever. So long story short, they die in a couple of hours, thee end. 1 OUT OF 5.
Segment 2: I kind of liked this one. Zombie cam, it's more of a comedy rather than horror. It had some funny moments, but also had the weakest characters and script. I'll give it a past just on the fact we get to see through the zombies eyes. 3 out of 5.
Segment 3: Frankly I wasn't even paying attention to this for the first half. The second half picked up very well. It had some good moments, but the payoff was laughable. The demon seamed like it was going to be cool, but when they showed it in full, it just some stupid ass goat monster. I give it a 2 out of 5.
Segment 4: Okay, this one was pretty bad, how could they mess up aliens in a secluded area. Well they put dumb kids, tomas the train engine ships, and dog cams in this. The sound quality is terrible, those little kids are disturbed. I felt bad for that poor sister, she gets hit water balloons with piss in them, her brothers are watching her have intercourse with her boyfriend. Incestual brothers are the worst, ask that chick from "The Funhouse". And if that wasn't bad enough, they show some 15 year old kid ******* off to porn. At this point I turned over to the TV, and watched Jessie break down in group therapy. Then they aliens chase them around. Why do aliens want a bunch of kids, who knows. And the segment ends with a dog going splat. Yeah, that was terrible. 0 out of 5.
Epilouge: So the guy they were looking for has become some supernatural being, and kills the two investigators.
Wow, what a pile of garbage. The nudity had been toned way down here, thank you. The violence is even more over the top. Everything else pretty much stayed the same, except for any originality or creativity. Well deserving of a 3 out of 10. It's watchable, but that doesn't mean you'll like what you see. ” - DustinRahksi
The plot sets up a big house with a lot of people in it. You'd think it would have a cozy Friday the 13ish feeling, but no, the characters are all seem to hate each other, and there is little development or interaction. They are lifeless, and don't say they are like that because of the dead mother, she never comes up again after the opening, no one seems to care. The film for the most part is relatively boring, and when Chucky finally does come out to play, he is never likable. The kills are few and far between, they are never worth the wait. Considering I bought the unrated version, I thought it was going to be pretty violent, but no. I don't know, maybe it was for the better, considering horror films these days going over board with the violence. This felt tame like the first three films.
The plot twist, this was another huge gripe with the film. I know Charles Lee Ray was a psychopath, but him wanting to be a family man, what? What about Tiffany, considering how much she liked him, why would he be going after some random middle class family. These flashback scenes really disturb me for some reason, I don't approve of them at all.
The dual endings. The ending for Nica was idiotic. The police believe that a woman in a wheelchair could possible do the things she was charged with, is just stretching the BS to unbelievable lengths. What about Alice, she could vouch for Nika. The fact that they even have the same Chucky doll that has caused so much carnage over the years sitting in the courtroom, and nobody, not one person believes Nika, yeah okay. Then there is the after credits ending for Andy. More of a fan service considering it doesn't make any sense. Before the credits rolled Chucky was transferring his soul into Alice, without the pendant I may add. So did he transfer or not, why was he still a doll when Andy took care of him with a shotgun. Why is Tiffany still working with him, where is Glen during all of this, why doesn't Chucky bleed when he gets hurt. Why? WHY? WHYYY? It's a very bitter disappointment to the franchise. I still recommend viewing it for yourself, to form your own opinion. ” - DustinRahksi
I don't get how people think this is a beautiful film, it's stupid and generic as all hell. The characters have been seen before, and done much better as well. The film is just played for laughs, nothing is even remotely realistic. Mostly with Jordan's character, and the BS love story with the stripper. Why would any want to be with a stripper? who knows. The Rachel character was the biggest b**ch any one could create. She dumps Jordan because of unexciting sex, even though that shouldn't even matter in a relationship. She dumps him, then proceeds to do it with ten different people, while she gets jealous of Jordan being with the stripper. They even try to make us feel sorry for her at one point, even though she is downright evil. There were a couple funny moments, but the film was unpleasant for the most part. It's just a mediocre attempt of Canada's version of a Judd Apatow film. 90 percent of the women in this film are portrayed as slutty.
It is pretty mediocre and generic, to the point where it is horrible. ” - DustinRahksi
The plot is alright in the sense that it actually has a thought out story line, even if it is down right stupid at times. All the characters return, even those annoying comic relief paranormal specialists. You can pretty much guess the plot just by watching the trailer, every thing is obvious, except for when they stretch out the BS. There is some time travel nonsense that is just plain ridiculous. Is there infinite realities, is this Bioshock or a ghost movie. It really tries to have this mind bending plot line, but it just had me rolling my eyes. It's about as clever as the swing away twist in Signs, that's pretty bad. The ending should be left as it is, if not, we are looking at the next paranormal activity, the BS will just go on and on, but people will see it. In fact, James Wan could be described as paranormal activity, over hyped, appeals to the masses, even if it completely ruins his films. He makes his films dirt cheap, and wrings in the cash from the general audiences.
The music is still loud as hell, or quiet to the point you can't even hear it. The acting is fine, they get a pass. There is no tension, no good scares or atmosphere. You never feel a sense of urgency, or fear. It is all around horrible as a horror film. But it was pretty entertaining, and just all around fine. You'll roll your eyes more than you'll jump in terror. The story was wrapped up, but that old Hollywood money machine will still be sniffing around this franchise. ” - DustinRahksi
This may be the best found footage film since [Rec], and that was 2007. Considering how many of these films get made, that is a good accomplishment. The characters aren't fleshed out, some of them hardly say a line, so you really don't care if they die. The biggest drawing point of this film is the monsters, and they are fantastic. They really aren't scary since they are not the most efficient killers. Well when you get surrounded by 12 of them, that does get very intense. I was surprised at how well lite this film was, you could see every single detail, kudos to you filmmaker. The sets are a million times better than any mainstream budget horror film has created in the last ten years. It's a pretty cool facility the doctor runs, comes complete with monsters as your butler. The effects are outstanding, all of the monsters and gore looked incredibly real. No CGI, and who would have thought a horror film would look real. Those are the highlights.
But there was some bad stuff as well. There is absolutely no character development. They have one trait, and thats what they use throughout the film. And of course there is no way a lab like that could be supplied with enough power to run, it's literally in the middle of nowhere. The main characters torture prisoners, kill children, sexual threat and possibly rape women, and destroy property. Our heroes everyone, don't you just care so deeply about them, and want them to live. One lastly, why was there some random woman moaning in the background, it's in the middle of a tense scene and you're distracted by some woman climaxing, what's the deal.
The film is pretty enjoyable, and a god send of found footage films. It wasn't as violent as I thought it would be, but still has some good gross outs. I recommend it. ” - DustinRahksi
I don't think I'll ever comprehend the mind of a woman, and why they do these things. Once again this film caters to social degenerates who never got any in the real. Or frat boy douche bags. There's no story, except woman get naked and wet and act like complete sluts. That's the moral of this film, women are objects that serve one purpose to men. The characters are portrayed as complete morons, but that's what makes them completely realistic. It's a bad movie, front and back. In fact, it's not even a movie, but more of a girls gone wild feature length film. These types of movie really make me question life, and if I should ever even get involved with another human being, the safe bet is no, keep doing what your doing. The film has no plot, no nothing. There is a reason why stuff like this is free on the internet, and why it should be kept away from film.
This movie saddens me deeply, but everything portrayed in the film is 100 percent realistic, so people don't need a paycheck to do this kind of stuff. I honestly tied not to fast forward through it, but it was mentally abusive, and I couldn't take it anymore.
Here is a sad and depressing review, as always, stay away from this film. Unless you're a fan of Asylum films, then knock your self out. Seriously. ” - DustinRahksi
The bad: I don't know if this Speck guy is real or not, and I don't know how he managed to kidnap 8 people at once. So this t.v. crew comes to a asylum, wow what a shocker, haven't seen that before. They are chasing a ghost, who raped women. So that means they bring as many women as possible with them. Did I mention these are the most cowardly ghost hunters ever, some of them don't even know how to work the equipment. And no that listening device they tried to pass off as paranormal equipment will not go over my head. I know for a fact that that device is used to spy on people, nothing else. So like jackasses they all split up, what could go wrong. Well Sarah!( in Jeff Goldblum voice) gets violently attacked and possible molested. And what does the crew do about it, they stay and call her BS. If that wasn't sadistic enough to this poor girl, they give her sleeping pills, and leave her alone in a room. I bet nothing bad will happen to her there. Time passes, as Adam spies on a Jackie undressing for some man director reason. Adam gets dragged away up into the ceiling, and he is somehow ripped in half be a ghost. Come on, a terminator can't even do that. Well, everybody comes to check it out, while poor little SARAH! is forgotten about in a room. And would you guess she gets brutally raped and killed. I bet her parents were so proud of her role in this film. The rest of the movie was painfully forced down my throat with sheer stupidity. It's obvious the ghost won't attack them in a group, but they always send one person off by them selves to do something, and of course it bites them in the ass, and ultimately leads to their doom. There is even a point where they forget a character was dead in front of them, while people right beside them still think they are alive. 27 minutes in, is where they should have left the building, but no. It's the law of nature, if you are that dumb, maybe you deserve what you get. And with all this stuff going on around them, they still continue to film, wwhhhhyyyy? Bu the part the sealed the nail in the coffin was just plain messed up. It was the ghost that was physically more powerful than the devil, it wasn't the stupid people. It was the necrophilia ghost. I knew as soon as that body was being dragged to the bed, what was going to happen. Say it with me, A necrophiliac rapist ghost that is stronger than the devil. Shame on the degenerate who created this. It's like the people who think they can hide from ghosts, it's just crazy nonsense.
This is seriously one of thee absolute worst films in the last 15 years, it's a tired formula. The film plays by too many rules, and never even thinks of doing something different. It had chances for horrific moments, but instead played it safe. Plese. for the sake of innocent SARAH!, stay away from this film, she suffered enough. ” - DustinRahksi
I could predict every moment in this film, I knew how the first three characters were going to act in the first second of the film. Luckily we never see them again. There are no scares, no atmosphere, no nothing. Penny is our hero, she is a complete idiot. She doesn't believe in ghosts, and there for breaks their code or whatever. And that gets every killed. This is exactly like TCM(2003), one person gets everyone else killed. The characters are annoying, one of them I wanted to physically hurt, that's not a good sign. The ending is absolutely hilarious, I'll get to that in a minute. It's one of those movies that doesn't accomplish anything, and it leaves feeling like a idiot.
THE STORY: So penny is pressured into breaking into the haun ted house she works at, so some overly exstatic guy can get his jollys. The first half of the film is poorly done, the house is small and cramped. The ghost have never have any motive for what they are doing. Keith the pychic says they aren't evil, yet they do bad things. It doesn't make any sense. Giselle is the only good character, she knows not to be messing around with stuff that can't be explained. She is the only one that knows something bad is going to happen. But she falls down the stairs and breaks her neck. I felt sorry for her. Then Craig cries like a b-tch because he might get accused of her death. He then pulls a Sorority row plot point, and wants to dispose of the body. No one else wants to do it, so I'll give them props. But I seriously wanted someone to beat Craig down, I hate that guy so much. Vanessa was just play strange, can't act or just told to be weird, I don't know. So at this point I realised, hey theres no nudity. Wow thast a first for this company. But oh wait, some random woman with ugly ass fake breast flaunts around. I should have saw that coming. So everyone is killed in completely ridiculous ways, and that leaves penny as the last one standing. She actually manages to fend off the ghosts and some skinless demon. But do want to know her fate, it was like I just got coned by a con man. She trips down the stairs and dies (I'm laughing while writing this), what a clutzs. It's not bad enough Giselle died that way, Penny died like that too. I can't get over how dumb that was, but it was unexpected that she would die like that. I thought the ghosts would take her right after she walked outside the house and say something like "it's over". And now she is premently attached to the house, forever in this purgatory. Sucks to be her.
I didn't expect much, so Asylum didn't desapoint there. It's just a average bad movie, not' much else to it. ” - DustinRahksi
Emma, the beautiful bimbo gets possessed by satan, why does satan waste his time on some random person, who knows. So she is a brat to her brother, Mark. She tries to drown him, but fails. She also manages to kill her psychiatrist, and put her cousin in the hospital. May I remind you that she had sex with her cousin.....yeah, I won't dwell on that. I guess that's okay over in Europe. So the convient uncle is a former priest, and comes in to do a series of exorcisms. But he has no success, at least that's what we are led to believe.
The film was pretty goofy throughout, but one event made dark all of a sudden. She gets her brother run over with a vehicle. Damn, that was mean. And if that wasn't enough, she confesses the truth that she called upon Satan to "free" her, because she's a b-tchy teenager who misbehaved, and got in trouble. BOO-HOO. And that's not even the best part. It turns out her priest uncle was the mastermind of the whole possession. He used her to bring Satan into the real world. He recorded it all, so he could show the truth to the world. So the father dies, Satan just leaves for some reason. The uncle kills himself, and the family is completely destroyed. Well something positive had to have come out of all this. Nope, the tapes are gotten rid of, and the mother goes crazy. Wow, that whole film was pointless.
I must say it was pretty entertaining, there wasn't that many bad things I could say about it, it was just okay. I would recommend it, it's worth one watch. ” - DustinRahksi
So there are have been numerous cases of teen suicide in the news over the last few years. No one likes bullies, but does that make it okay to murder them in cold blood.
The characters: The characters were alright, they seamed to bully just because they saw it as a joke. They weren't psychotic, or evil. They were just stupid kids having "fun". Justine was a half way decent character, she was hurtful without realizing it. Marcus was somewhat likable idiot. Bradley reminded me Travis Van Winkle, you know he always plays the douche bag, they were almost identical. And that's all I remember of them.
The Mullet: Now this guy comes off as more of a psychopath. From what I made of this character, he was a creeper. He seamed to have an unhealthy obsession with Justine, even though clearly he should leave it alone and be contempt with his situation. Teens don't understand that being bullied in high school is awe full, but it will pass. I doubt he would have got over it with his introverted and shy way of being. Kids see him as a easy target, I don't know, maybe he should have done something about it. I don't understand teenagers, so I don't know what I am trying to say without offending sensitive people. Be tough, is all I can say.People knew better than to mess with me, where as if people messed with a weaker person, they would have no resistance. You gotta be one MEEANNN Mutha to make it in these type of situations.
The theme: So the theme is, if your being bullied, fantasize about how you'll kill them. I mean, these bullies were clearly terrified the whole time. Teach them a lesson, assert dominance, don't brutally stalk and murder them. I never faced bullying, so I can't speak for the subject.
Overall, the movie poorly made, especially about such a touchy and serious subject matter. The film is too comedic and upbeat, it doesn't work or convey any positive message. And quite possibly made by someone who experienced such treatment, and had such thoughts. ” - DustinRahksi
The young buck segment had some catchy music, too bad it was about a paedophile. But the two big segments that beg the question, why? Both of these segments are about some weird Asian porno, torture porno for that matter. I won't take about the one with the guys in the chairs, just for the sake of reducing the filthy language. The small boy getting ****** on the bed was just out there, where did they find these degenerate directors. The last segment, Z, features some of the heaviest nudity ever featured in film. Man, woman, they show every thing. This last segment alone, deserves a NC-17 rating.
Was it bad, well it's supposed to be. It was entertaining, at least a couple segments were. I don't recommend it, this is made only for a certain trash digging group of people. It is on Netflix, so the choice is yours. ” - DustinRahksi
Let's get the good stuff out of the way first. As far as horror based in reality goes, this is one of the best. It actually seems plausible, even those nasty ass bugs in the film are based on real ones. It's more realistic than a "true ghost story", and it's way more scarier. I've watched a lot of filth, but this was very gross, and just vile. What is more horrific than getting slowly eaten alive by bugs, bugs are flat out disgusting. The two best characters were Stephenie and the...Dr.Jenner CDC guy, I'll call him that.
Those two teens at the docks was looking like a pretty silly scene at first, like something out of a Piranha film, so the girl jumps in the water, and I got a dumb grin on my face, here it comes. She starts getting eaten, oh what a mighty chuckle, oh film you are too goofy. But this isn't one of those goofy horror films, my thoughts of " stupid kid dies" fly's out the window, and I feel rotten inside. It was quite a gross scene with a disturbing after thought, I felt like sh-t.
The bad: This film unfortunately suffers from the same stupid sh-t we are all accustomed with. Bad acting, stupid people, flat out dumb script. There's just too many characters, sure you get to see more of what's happening, but you just don't care about them. That monotone girl was annoying, she was like a robot, zero emotion. That French girl was hard to understand, even the actor next to her asked her what she just said. The people are dumb, that is it's major downfall. Does nobody in this world have the chops to make it in this kind of situation.
The story and setting were great, every thing else is meh. I recommend it, only for those that can stomach it. This film is pretty gnarly. ” - DustinRahksi
Act 1 So a generic family moves in to the crime scene house. And of course there is a kid filming every thing. Heres my problem so far, the kid has already recorded supernatural events, and two people die in their first day in the house. And nobody thinks something funny is going on, oh yeah, and it's incredible stupid. Another thing you notice right off the bat, the camera keeps getting distorted and keeps making a ringing noise. That literally happens throughout the rest of the film, talk about annoying. There is a lot of pointless 30 second scenes here as well. But our main character ,Tyler is the biggest loser I have ever seen. He can't act even if his life was on the line. And he also video tapes his sister while she is getting naked, what an incestuous little freak. Then we are led to the back door opening segment.
Act 2 Yes, this back down is literally the only thing that tries to scare you until the last 5 minutes of the film. All that happens here is conflict. The dad thinks Lori(sister) is sneaking out at night, so he sets up a wild home security system. Tyler enrages every one around him, he's like the paparazzi. Tyler finds the iphone which has magically hidden itself in under a counter-top. He likes what the kids are doing in the video, so he shows it to his parents, yeah I don't know why. The father is becoming increasingly psychotic. Lori is questioned harder, Tyler annoys every one, and the mom breaks down. So it turns out Lori was sneaking out when with some random boy, and they father puts him in his place. That teen boy is then killed outside by the ghost, Tyler records it and doesn't tell anyone. So the little girl of the family has been talking to a ghost for this whole time, but the father thought it was BS. That was until he saw the invisible boy on one of his camera monitors. Everyone is convinced there is a ghost.
Act 3 So what do they do, why hold down in the house of course. With only two days left before the mom takes the kids out of the house (I don't know why they just didn't go to a hotel) all they have to do is stick together. So they sleep in the same room, except for Lori. All they have to do is stay together, but instead they all leave the room by themselves in the middle of the night. Lori is the first to go in a particularly graphic and painful way, poor Lori. Then the mom dies, because she seams to have forgotten there was ghosts in the house. The son goes looking for her, and he gets the axe in about the only have way decent jump scare. And lastly the little girl is now possessed and kills the father, that reminded me of Sinister, including her final words to her father.
So the film pretty bad, but it was watchable, even if it was really stupid. Take it for what you will. ” - DustinRahksi
The good: I guess the setting was well done, it looked good. The script was severely lacking, of course it has to stay true to the source material, but this is a film that requires more than what we got. That also ties in with how it only focuses on the trial and execution of Christ, rather than all the teachings he gave us. Sure it gives a few flashbacks throughout the film, most of which are easily identifiable. A lot of people complained about the violence, you know because the bible was rated G. It was a more realistic approach, I thought it was better they show. Even if at times it was way overdone, like the bladed whip ripping the flesh around his ribs, that seamed there just for shock value. But the image of Jesus on the cross, made it stick in your mind more. The acting was all around decent, nothing worthy of praise though. But they did just seem to be characters on paper, and were not fleshed out at all. I found the music to be a little generic, sure it had a middle eastern vibe to it, but was nothing that I would remember anytime soon. I can't stand reading the bible, but if they made more films about it, then I'd probably be more interested. I thought the parts with the devil gave it a more unsettling feel, it would work great for a horror film. Overall, the film isn't half bad, it's nothing great. But it was worth watching, I feel like being a little less harsh to this subject matter.
Of course Mel Gibson got a huge amount of backlash for this film, but he needed to make it in a time were he was down in life. Of course using such fragile subject matter wasn't the best thing he could have done. I thought Braveheart was more well done than this, I haven't seen Apocalypto, so I can't speak for that. The messages of the film were alone the lines of foregivness and perservereness for the better. There is another message I can't quite put my finger on, but it's there somewhere.
At the end of the day, people either loved it, complained about it, or down right hated it and Mel Gibson. As it being a film, it's just average. But as it being a good story, it succeeds. Not Gibson's best work, but it is worth a watch. You'll at least get get some kind of reaction to it. ” - DustinRahksi
And lastly, the ending. Nell switches over to the dark side, she magiacally un-restrains her self from the table, and takes the imaginary devils hand. She really just grasped at the air. Oh, yeah this had a 30 second exorcism scene, YEP, 30 seconds, wow. Then they just gave up and pumped some poison into her, which was cleary a mistake in such a time sensitive moment. They should have just bashed her head, but no, the film wants to set itself up for a continuation. It ends with Nell becoming some type of X-men/Carrie wannabe.
Now I remember why I didn't go to the theatres to see this, well it's still better that The Conjuring, whoops. ” - DustinRahksi
I'm not going to get into the plot, I'll leave that for anyone who wants to view it. The atmosphere and camera work are spot on, some great stuff for a horror film. The soundtrack is some of the best music I have ever heard in my life. They took a bunch of music from separate games, and put it into one amazing soundtrack. Too bad they never released a soundtrack for purchase, they makes me sad, I could listen to this stuff for hours. I sit through the credits every time I watch this film, how many films does any one actually look forward to the end credits, just this one. Songs include: 1. Tears of 2. Laura's theme 3.You're not here 4. wounded warsong 5. Promise(reprise). I highly recommend you-tubing these songs. These songs have so much emotion to them, they are sad, depressing, but enjoyable to listen to. They really make me think.
The film is 2 hours long, probably the only horror film that actually deserves that kind of runtime. I will admit, the scenes with Sean Beans character slow the pace down quite a bit, I'd like to see a cut with that just stayed in Silent hill the whole time. The visuals and sets look great, it's the real deal. The acting is a little iffy at times, Jodelle Ferland really didn't sit well with me at certain points. I don't know, she did a good job in Case 39 though. Pyramid head didn't get much screen time, I wish they would have unleashed him at the end climax. The Colin monster was pretty sick the first time I watched this, you would not want to get caught by that.
The sequel was very poorly made compared to this, even just frustrating at how they squandered it. Here's high hopes to a worthy third film. ” - DustinRahksi
here' the original version:
WOW, what is there to say. It's soft core porn for starters. I don't get why stuff like this has to be made, it violates film, it's a disgrace. Bad everything. This kind of stuff should just remain on the internet, you know. God, I don't know how many times I can rant about this stuff, my reviews all say the same freaking thing, except this one doesn't feature a single plot point. That's because there is no plot, just a bunch of loose women getting naked. This could have been condensed into a ten minute video, but instead it's feature length. My god the nudity never stops, it just goes on and on and on and on and on and on, it's all female god fore-bid a male gets naked. That's how you can tell a man made this movie, I still can't figure out why women do this though. Probably because of this degenerate society that lacks any moral conscious, and only see's money as the answer to every thing. Or they just have half a brain. I don't know, maybe I'm just too advanced to fit into this trash heap of a society. I would say, this film is for....men I guess, teenagers probably. I'm a teenager, and find this stuff horrifying. Maybe it's because I have a strong passion for film and hate to see it violated like this. Or maybe it's just I am not a regular teen boy, anyway, I only watch this garbage so I can degrade my view on humanity to the point where I can just stop caring. So, I wish there was something to talk about that happened in the movie , but there's just nothing to say. I don't know why this review won't go through when I submit it, I must be too offencive to someone out there. I'll try and resubmit it one more time, if it doesn't go through I'll just post it in a new list I'll make.
You see, there was nothing to say about the movie, so I had to talk about something else. STAY AWAY, it will make you feel sick
Here's the edited version.

I would say this film is for teenagers, it pretty much portrays everything they do in the real, so they would be drawn to it. This is one of the lowest forms of film, I can't enjoy it, maybe it's because I have a strong passion for film and hate to see it violated like this. So, I wish there was something to talk about that happened in the movie , but there's just nothing to say. This is like some director walked into a random teenagers party, and said "hey, you guys want to make some money, and be in a film". No acting, no plot, no soundtrack, no sets, no character development, no plot points. JUST PEOPLE THAT WANT TO HAVE SEX. There is no reason this film should have been made, probably so losers have something to look at. Or you could just go on the computer for free.

You can tell from the opening scene this movie was going to be abusive, even the title alone spells it out. It opens with two young siblings in the pool, and look at title of film, there you can guess what happens.
Fast forward to an overly comedic and hokey high school, where Dawn(Jess Weixler) is preaching about Chastity, that's iron towards the end of the film. So we see stupid people, and then there is some double standard BS, a whole lot of nothing. Dawn becomes attracted to some other guy in her group. So they meet at a watering hole to do the nasty. She changes her mind and he rapes her. What a nice film:). Turns out that was a bad idea, as he loses his manhood in quite a funny way. Those teeth are a hell of a defence mechanism. So she goes to the gynaecologist for some answers. You can tell a man created that occupation. So the guy loses his fingers while doing some flexibility test which I am pretty sure is inappropriate. Dawn is now stricken with guilt, so she goes to some guys house. She gets drugged, and is raped again. Don't worry, in the morning she is alright with it. It's strange how they hide her body all film, but then randomly show her breasts, then go back to hiding them. Anyway, turns out the guy was just using her as some kind of big game hunt, he gets his just deserves. The rest of the movie doesn't make any sense. She has sex with her brother, leaves town, and then unleashes the teeth on some pervert while hitch hiking. That's four people she had sex with in a matter of three days, so much for her Chastity morals, womp womp waahh.
They film is just down right mean, every where Dawn goes, someone wants to rape her. How is that supposed to be entertaining, it's sick. The characters are complete trash, and degenerates. It's hard to make a comedy work, when it's about rape, don't you think. It's bad, I couldn't wait for it to end. ” - DustinRahksi
The film is well shot and well made, duh! lets give it a 8 out of 10. That's the logic I see it as, nostalgia. But back here in reality, we have seen this same freaking movie a hundred times, at least I have, I don't know about the rest of you who saw this. I'm just going to throw the "TRUE STORY" aspect out the window, come on, is there any proof that those advents happened scene for scene, word for word. How about a "TRUE STORY" that ended horrifically, not the same BS happy ending complete with generic play by play demons. It is just a cliché film, evil dead was better then this, and that was a piece of crap. I am really bumping this film down for all of it's unoriginality. But that means nothing in Hollywood, especially considering it's a horror film. If this film got such high ratings, what about a film like Silent Hill, it's well shot and made. It's more original then most horror films. But no, it gets ripped apart by critics.
It wasn't scary, that stupid loud music cue when something pops up is all this film has to offer. The demons are just forgettable. Now compare that to the grudge, the demons are insanely scary, and it lacks music cues. It scarred you miles ahead of this film. All I know is, I am going to sleep well tonight, and probably forget I ever saw this movie. The high ratings are a lie. ” - DustinRahksi

The story: We open the film in traditional asylum film, a nude woman being sacrificed to the devil. What was the point of this scene, I don't know. Then we head over to the 11 minute birth scene, with some devil minion meandering around. So in this sequence we see him kill some random lady who just gave birth, wow that is cold. The birthing scene was too drawn out and unfocused, and do we really need to see the crowning, come on. So the baby is born, and it strangles the doctor and nurse with it's umbilical cord. And they take the baby home, and...well lets just get this over with fast. Nudity, nudity, baby preforming cunnilingus on mom, husband dies, baby is taken away. There, you got it, because I don't.
So the woman moves in with her bipolar sister. The minion somehow followed them there. And from this point on, every one and everything just dies. It's not even worth getting into because it just too out there. The husband is never talked of again, the detective always has a lollipop in his mouth when ever you see him. There is no rhyme or reason.
This movie so bad I don't even want to write this review, because I then would have to remember what happened. ” - DustinRahksi
