The Most Under Rated Movie I've Ever Seen!
20 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Prior to stumbling on this thriller, the movie Southern Comfort was the most under rated GREAT movie I had ever seen.

This movie surpassed that! To put it mildly,this movie is awesome! It's fast paced, it's believable, and it's got a GREAT ending that you'll never figure out. All of the actors do a superb and believable job in their respective parts and this ninety - four (94) minute thriller is FANTASTIC!

The IMDb movie rating really surprised me because everyone I have ever turned on to this movie has flipped over it in a manner like I did.

Regardless, it's a GREAT movie that I believe will become a classic years from now.
