Sexy Horror !, 20 November 2009

Although this is a V movie, but it's better than many cinematic ones. (Ritual) is a small movie yet fine whether as sexy or as horror.

First of all, the "sexy" part : The image was bright, the colors were enticing, and (Kristen Wilson) was unbelievable! Since a small role in a series I hate (The District), and then a smaller role in a movie many hate (Doctor Dolittle) I felt that she's an exceptional beauty. This time she made that clear, being one of the hottest girls I've ever seen in a movie. I can't forget her in that rosy short skirt, she was dazzling like a rare gem. Or answering her house's door all naked.. This is matchless, giving (Ritual) the quality of "unforgettable" apart! I was amazed how she perfected her accent too. It makes you ask where is such a queen in Hollywood so-called blockbusters ? Here's another mystery, else the movie's one, for you!

The long-time absentee (Jennifer Grey) wasn't bad herself. The (Dirty Dancing)'s heroine has turned, with not many movies after, into a memory from the 1980s. Here, with the serenely colored clothes, the plain outfits, the curly hair, the short coiffure and her presence (which didn't differ much) she looked really like a memory from the 1980s! (Grey) delivered convincing performance with slight sexy moments. Obviously the makers wanted to exploit their movie's babies well since there was no budget; so let's put the 2 female leads (one blond, and one brunet) in skimpy clothes for most of the time. However when it comes to acting, and being too hot, simply Kristen Wilson wins.

The movie was moving as the same as sexy. It managed to be mysterious, a bit scary and most of all unpredictable. I loved the exciting unexplained events, the end's twist, so the last shot. The directing tried to be as exotic as the story. You might see that the movements of the camera were idiot, the using of the lenses was cheap, but anyway.. it worked. The landscapes seemed beautiful and wild. All in all it managed to be a journey into seductive and dangerous world. And despite the low budget I didn't feel any TV-ish moments.

Very few times when I put "entertaining" right before "horror" in one sentence, so how about a "V" movie too! But this time it deserves that. And surprisingly not for Kristen Wilson only. Lovely voodoo both ways.
