Black Ribbon is a Twisted, Dark Treat!!
19 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw "Black Ribbon" for the 1st time a few months ago. It's basically about a man who purchases an old typewriter which is possessed and it doesn't take long where it starts affecting him. He does some really sick, Satanic things which is both shocking and entertaining. This is a fun movie to watch if you're into true horror and it was refreshing to see so many Indie actors in it whom I've seen before in other Indie films. Give "Black Ribbon" a try... I think you'll really enjoy it like I have. It's refreshing to see a director make a film who's not afraid to push the envelope and not worry about showing really intense scenes that Hollywood would never show (not even NC-17). 10 out of 10!!!
