A Physiological Horror Movie
4 December 2014 | by sarbee53See all my reviews

When first being introduced to this movie, I was told it was a horror movie. When we first think of horror movies we think of blood and gore and people being killed or attacked. These types of horror movies can get predictable and lose their sense of "scary". Bodom was original in the sense that it was a physiological horror. It made you think throughout the entire film, and when the film is about over and you think you understand the main character, there is plot twist that makes you question your previous thoughts. I enjoyed the angle from what the movie took place, by going through the perspective of two students doing a simple thesis on the mystery at Bodom. Originally I knew nothing about the mystery in Bodom, but this spiked my interested to learn more. When real-life murders are incorporated into movies especially horrors, many times the directors base the entire movie around it and almost imitate it. I found this horror movie to be refreshing in a sense that the movie was based around the mystery at Bodom, but it wasn't a reincarnation of the events. I highly suggest anyone who find horror movies to be bland and predictable to watch this movie in order to renew your faith that there ARE horror movies out there that will make you think even days after watching.
