Cell 213 will leave you...well, it will just leave you.
18 April 2018 | by tdrishSee all my reviews

Holy hell! I was not expecting the movie to be this good! Clever movie, with a few shocks, a few twists, and just the right amount of violence, insanity, and madness to make this probably the greatest horror/thriller I've seen in a very long time. First of all, forget about the low rating, it's obvious to me that people just do not have an appetite for well made films that involve great cinematography when they see that a film is suppose to be, what they would expect, a horror movie. Yes, this is a horror movie. However, it is more of a psychological horror, a very disturbing, intricately laced horror. I gave this a high rating for several reasons, and I cannot discuss the main reason without spoiling the key points ( not to mention the main plot) of the film. The script is excellent, the dialog is crisp, and the sensation overall is believable. It's not perfect, there's a few flaws, a few plot holes, and at least one scene where I was thinking : "Now, wait a minute. If...ya ya ya..." Can't tell you. I highly recommend watching this, if your looking for a slick, scary, messed up psychological horror film, please rent this, I don't think you will be disappointed.
