Monkeys paw fell a couple knuckles short of a full hand
29 January 2014 | by boynascarSee all my reviews

Now don't get me wrong, not a bad movie by far, however the trailers and hype brought this movies potential to be one of the best horror films in years. Kind of fell short. I agree it's not the worst movie and very well worth watching, just don't expect academy awards for this. I give this flick a solid 6-7 stars (out of 10) for getting so many to watch it in the first place, a good solid 5 for the acting, as for the plot, we'll have to dig a little deeper for this to even reach a 4. The story line and plot fell short in every category I can think of, at times I swear the actors were ablibing lines to fill in the plot holes. So overall score... A solid 5. Hope you enjoy it, I did , past 2 hours in a flash..... My wife keeps yelling at me for singing "Monkey Paw, Monkey, monkey paw all day " over n over...lol.. (Very loud at that :))
