I'm not a guy.
I like horror everything.
I am not only vampire freak, but more of a cryptozoology freak.
Surrealism (or fantasy) and sci-fi are also two genres I like.

Case 39 (2009)
Seemed good in the beginning, but ended in disappointment.
I'm going to start off by pointing out that this is my OPINION. I don't have anything personal against anyone involved in the film. As a film, it's perfectly fine. The effects are good, the locations chosen seem believable enough. The story itself started fine, but unfortunately proceeded to go into an uncontrollable spiral of mediocrity.
I'm giving this film a 1 out of 10 because of the story, the ideas behind it, the general way it shrugs off abuse, social services, mental illness and victimized children. This movie is really more of a mild, MILD thriller. It is NOT horror.
Yes, it uses horror concepts- like supernatural phenomena, evil beings, irrational fears, really visceral things happening to people. This movie had everything set to be a decent scary flick.
But no, it had to resort to "terrible, bad, only interested in hurting people, evil being in a child's body".
Alright, alright. Let's humor the concept for a moment. Let's look at three scenarios:
1. Say you're an inherently evil conscious being, but for some reason you need a human body. So logically, because you feed on fear and misery, you choose to be born to a perfectly happy couple instead of any number of abundant expecting mothers out there who hate their lives perfectly well. Then, instead of managing your renewable source of terror, you drive the off the wall until they try to murder you. Then instead of just playing the part of innocent child and feeding off fear on your free time, you decide to hash out the same mistakes all over again. Are you stupid?
2. Let's go a different way and assume you're an evil being which somehow got born in a human body- with no prior memories. At first, as any young being, your acts would be unintentional, it would be what you naturally do to survive. You wouldn't understand why your parents hated you, feared you, called you evil, because you would be too young. Yes, you'd have supernatural abilities, a penchant for making people suffer- but you'd still be in a human child's body, and your cognitive functions would be developing just as that of a human child. You probably only hurt other people because those were the methods you had and thought effective, because you knew no other way- imagine this- and because you were neglected. That's the only practical reason for that, really, if you were that kind of being without morals you'd do the same. Remember every living being has the instinct of self-preservation, so why would a demon child be any different?
3. Lilith was actually a non-human being in a non-human body, yet resembled a human child, why would such a being confine itself to human needs? She had human needs, then. If she had human needs, then she probably had other things human, such as emotions, perhaps?
Why would everyone be content in just "oh, she's evil? Okay, let's just kill her then" instead of actually trying to figure out what she is? If there was something non-human about that child, I'd want to know all about it instead of just killing it without understanding this. Because if something like this is even possible, what's to keep it from happening again?
Nearly every demon film I've seen has been a heap of disappointment. This hot mess was no exception. Watch once, just to enjoy thousands of dollars, and many hours film-making talent were wasted when there are plenty of great written pieces out there that would have made a much more scary movie. With so many great ideas out there worth making into a movie- and they made THIS.
See for yourself, it's up on Youtube.
WARNING: the following contain SPOILERS!!!
The noise that key chain made made me cringe. The girl (I'm assuming his sister?) playing with the key chain made for a very tense scene that seemed to stretch for longer than it really was... It was good enough to watch throughout. Although it kinda gives you that cold feeling inside when you see the woman... and he seemed to be completely comfortable with it, like it was just another day... Overall, it was a good four minutes, seven seconds... Took me longer to write this preview.
Blood Ties: Bugged (2007)
On this Episode
What did you think? I thought this one was one of the most interesting ones... and the actors... VERY nice! XD Some scenes were disappointing.... But overall the episode was alright. Definitely not the best one, but definite top five. The whole series is very good, although at times there are some flaws... I will not list them as they are not all that bad, and the fact that each episode brings a new piece of arcane or occult event that is examined, with thorough and accurate knowledge, makes up for some of the flaws... this show is made for entertainment, and entertain is one thing it is absolutely successful at doing, it never disappoints me. Especially with an episode like this. It is one of those rare shows that brings that sort of humor which I love.
