Thrilling
20 December 2016 | by andrewp-46450See all my reviews

Beautiful Prison is a movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning till end! It is well written, directed and produced. The story has excellent twists and turns that leaves you wondering what will happen next. The cinematography is dark but goes well with the story. This movie is a zombie loving, romance novel, with the twists and turns that make for good pictures. It also has all the blood and gore you could wish for if you are really into the horror genre or if you like having bad dreams in general. I can't wait for more movies like this from such a crazy talented writer/director! What a new and fresh perspective!
