Loved this movie
2 September 2002 | by ticktixSee all my reviews

In the great scheme of things, horror films are never expected to be more than entertaining and "Another Heaven" offered me just that. I confess that the initial draw for me was the serial killer ingredient, but the handsome and sexy Yosuke Eguchi reeled me in within seconds, he is very tasty eye candy!!! The plot? Well... Considering I am a fan of such slasher flicks as "Halloween" and "Nightmare on Elm Street", and the Evil Dead films rock, "Another Heaven" was a bit deeper than I had anticipated.

I enjoyed the take on Revelations. With most films I can predict the outcome within the first five minutes, with "Another Heaven" I was baffled until ten minutes to the end. To me that is an accomplishment. Yeah, there is a homophobic element, not unlike the rednecks that live in my city really, and the violence towards women could be misconstrued, but honestly folks... I think that was more of character development, ok?

All in all it was a great ride, and one I am happy to show to anyone willing to watch!!!
