Very difficult to review., 1 April 2012
Author: moonbeaver from Canada

This rating required a lot of thought. In the first 20 minutes I would have given it a 1/10. The characters are so cliché and the dialogue is so poorly written that any self-respecting horror lover would quickly roll their eyes.

So I stopped the movie. I could've sworn I'd seen very good reviews here on IMDb. I flipped open my laptop and re-read some of the reviews and sure enough, they were mostly positive.

Weird. Rarely a mention of the bad acting and awful script. At this point I just figured most of these reviews must be from 14 year olds or people who were invested in the film. I decided to watch on. I put on my headphones, cranked the volume and gave The Divide another go.

It got better. The acting remained appalling but there was a bit of a sci-fi element introduced which was kind of cool. The intensity ramped up and I became locked into the film. I didn't enjoy it, but I was in for the long haul. I watched it through to the end. All the way 'til the end of the credits.

And I was left with this very bad feeling. Very bad indeed. I don't really know how to describe this awful feeling. It reminded me of being a scared kid. I'm not talking about 'my brother freaked me out on Halloween' scared, I'm talking about 'I saw my neighbour drown a bunch of puppies in a barrel' scared.

Once, when I was 7 I snuck out of my room one night and from the top of the stairs I could see my dad watching TV. He was watching 'The Accused' with Jody Foster. I watched the last 45 minutes from my hiding place in shocked silence.

Remember when you were 7 years old? Did you ever see something you were much too young to see? Remember that feeling? Feeling scared and a bit ashamed? Seeing something you're just not emotionally mature enough to handle. Remember how your heart raced?

Did you ever want to 'un-see' something? I want to un-see The Divide.

When I was a kid I used to like to watch old episodes of the Twilight Zone and get freaked out. That's why I watch Horror and Sci-Fi now. I love that feeling. That feeling is what I'm after. 'The Descent' gave me that feeling. 'Session 9' gave me that feeling. '1408' even gave me that feeling. Obviously, 'The Exorcist' bloody gave me that feeling.

This does not give you that feeling. This feeling is different from that. It's not a feeling I want to feel anymore. This is a bad feeling.

What is good horror to you? One part of me wants to rate it a 0. But I'm a horror fan and it scared me, riveted me. How can I rate it less than a 6? I would prefer I never saw the movie. So perhaps that makes it 'good', I'm not sure. It depends. I mean horror is supposed to freak you out. And it really has some original story elements. I suppose I respect it. Bottom line it gave me nightmares.

How can give a horror film that gave me nightmares less than a 6?

Having said all that, every copy of this film should be incinerated and the ashes buried somewhere in the arctic tundra, away from people.

Or what the hell? Go ahead and watch it, if you've got the stones. Pour yourself a whiskey, take a massive bong hit. Turn the volume up nice and loud. Then just sit back my friend... some films require you to commit. Some demand a hefty price. This price must be paid in advance and there's no refunds.
