Friday Night Thriller
13 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. I felt that it was a great Friday night flick. An entertaining film that gives you what you are looking for when you want to watch a thriller/scary movie with your buddies. Covers all the bases to engage you with the plot and characters. I don't think that the story line is new, however, I thought it was well written and the actors did a great job to capture my attention. After Effect has several great action scenes that have point of view shots that I thought were very cool and would make Michael Bay jealous. There were also these transition shots that brought you in from being a viewer to being apart of the experiment. Felt like that was extremely creative. A thriller film must have gruesome special effects to set it apart. When I watch an alien/zombie type movie, make up and effects, better be awesome to keep the story "real" and me believing. Now because of After Effect I have to ask myself how desperate in need of cash do I have to be in order to participate in a paid research study. Damn these movies and their psychological effects! NO spoilers here, see the movie!
