A little gem of a horror movie
27 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

The Shrine, 3 friends head off to a distant land in search of a story. Thats the story in a nutshell without me giving away any spoilers.

The script here was a very interesting one, it starts off slow, but gets moving along quite nicely. The acting was good, sure... it's not Oscar worthy, but it was good enough to keep me watching, everyone did a good job. I would like to praise the directing of the movie, it's nice to see good directing in unknown horror movies, it's a rare thing in my mind. This movie gave a good eerie feeling, which most horror movies fails at, it has a good amount of gore to keep those fans happy, but also gives us some twist and turns to keep ppl interested in watching.

Overall, good acting, good directing, decent script, a very enjoyable watch. Final verdict - 8 out of 10, i would recommend any fans of horror to watch this, even if u are not a fan, i still suggest you watch this.
