Storyline

Susie Bannion is a young American ballerina who travels to Berlin to study dancing at the Markos Tanz Company, one of the world's most renowned schools under Madame Blanc's management. On her very first day, one of the students who had been recently expelled from the school is murdered. As this appalling happening does not seem to be an isolated occurrence, the brilliant new student soon begins to suspect that the school might be involved in the homicide. Her mistrust heightens when Sarah, one of the girls at the school, tells her that Pat, before being killed, confided to her that she knew and guarded a terrifying dark secret. Written by Domingo Alvarez

2/5 stars

No spoilers. I've never seen the old original movie. They clearly put a lot of work into the movie so I'm giving them some stars out of respect. Also I have seen worse. Also my disliking it might be in part to my usually not liking horror films and especially watching people being tortured.

Now I didn't hate the movie...but...if I had watched it in the theater I think I might've hated it. Especially if I had to sit through the whole thing in a theater. Most likely I would have walked out if that was an option. At home I was able to focus on some other things during boring the many boring scenes of which i was just waiting to be over. To clarify what I mean by hate...I hated Wolf Creek and I hated Devil's Rejects. So if you liked either of those then you might like this movie.

One of its only redemptions for me was the inclusion of a Radiohead song. Some of the acting was quite good too. I must also applaud it for what was, to me at least, an original and interesting concept. Granted I was quite bored by it, but I did find it a little interesting due to its originality. Without spoiling it I will say that during a minute in the last chapter of the film, when the screen is red tinted, was one of the most artistic moments I have seen in a film of recent years...granted what I mean by artistic...I am not a professional artist, so all I mean is simply that it felt like a painting in motion with a soundtrack in that scene. Kind of delightful.

Recommended? No. Unless you liked Wolf Creek and Devil's Rejects. That sort. Then maybe it is your cup of tea. Ever tasted straight yerba mate? Well....some people like it for some reason beyond my understanding so...yeah.
