A fast paced thriller in a neo-noir style with a very good cast. Harker's character is very difficult to understand, and the actor who plays him is very good, as well as the rest of the cast. The movie does have a very good twist ending, but it is very brief and not what you might expect. Overall this is a good watch, and I give it 7/10.

It's a shame that an Aussie film can be so bad! This is, in my opinion, one of the best Australian horror films. I've seen it twice now and I still find it entertaining. I don't really like the local accents but that is a minor annoyance. It's basically a real world movie but the story is original. I found the story very interesting and, in a way, a mirror of our own lives. It is a shame that they didn't make a sequel because, although not great, this film was a really good one. The gore is a little over the top but this is more to do with the acting and writing. The ending is absolutely outstanding. I would highly recommend it to anybody who has a love of horror films. However, if you are not a fan of horror films then you should not watch this film. It is rather sad that the film has not been released on DVD in Australia because it would probably be a cult film! If you want a good horror film go and see it. My rating for the film is 7/10.

I've watched a lot of horror movies over the years and have seen the majority of them coming from the start of the 90's. As I started to watch this film, I was expecting it to be like the rest and be nothing special. I was wrong. This film is much better than the majority of horror films. I was not expecting much, but this film was much better than most other horror films. I was also not expecting to like this film as much as I did. I am not a fan of "special effects", but this film had the best effects I have ever seen. The photography, acting, directing, sound, and make up were all great. If you want to see a good horror film, watch this one. If you want to see a great horror film, watch this one.

A movie about a group of troubled young adults, who become more unstable as they come into contact with a stranger. It's a well done psychological thriller with a few shocks and a few scares. It's not a good movie, but it is a very good one, not one of the best but one of the better ones.

Saw this movie when it was released and was surprised at how well it was done. Not only did it make me squirm with fear of the darkness, but it was a surprisingly good horror movie that made me feel the need to come out of the house at night to see what was going on. There is a lot of blood and gore in the movie but the scares are pretty minor compared to the scary effects. The performances in the movie are good, and the acting was believable. The direction is pretty good. The story is pretty interesting. The ending was pretty good. All in all, I would recommend this movie.

I'd like to start off by saying that I have a special affinity for movies with special effects. Even the films I don't care for, if the special effects are impressive, I can still find something to enjoy. I thought that The Village was pretty good, although not as much as I hoped it would be. I thought that this movie was pretty decent. I will admit that the first time I saw this movie I was skeptical. I was worried that the special effects were going to be weak, and that it would be cheesy. I was right about the cheesy parts. The Village has some pretty cheesy parts. However, if you are a fan of the movies, and if you are into special effects, then you will find something to enjoy. I thought that it was a decent movie. It has some scary moments. It's well worth a watch. It's worth a watch. The Village: 7/10

I liked this movie, it was well thought out and well done. The director used many techniques to give the viewer the feeling of fear, and a great way to put the viewer in the character's shoes. There were many scenes that made me jump out of my seat, and a couple of shots that were just plain scary. The cinematography was also good, it was a clever approach to the look of the movie. The director also made the actors look very believable in their roles. The actors did a great job of portraying the characters that they were in. The costumes were also excellent. The setting was also good, it was well shot and did not look cheesy. I really liked the creepy, moody, eerie atmosphere that this movie gave off. The movie was very well made, and the scenes that were filmed in the woods were also well shot. The movie was very suspenseful, and I felt that it was well written. I also thought the ending was very well done, and very emotional. The movie was very well directed, and I really liked the film. I was also impressed with the actors, they were really good in their roles. Overall, I really enjoyed this movie, it was well done. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes a suspenseful movie with a little bit of horror.

The Closer I Get is a great film, with a great cast. The acting is great, especially from John Travolta as a self-centered writer with some psychological issues. But this film is definitely best enjoyed by the young audience. The film's lack of blood and violence does make it a great film for younger viewers. The violence is more subtle in this film, and as I stated before, the younger audience will probably not understand all of it. The film has a great story, but the lack of blood makes it not a great film for younger viewers. The film does have a lot of heart, but it is hard to understand the story. But, overall, the film is great, and it's good to see John Travolta in a film again. 7/10

One of the first movies I saw with Jennifer Lopez. I was amazed at her performance and I watched it again several years later and watched it again several times. I love how well she acted and even better she was very talented. I love the "human" aspect and the fact that she used her "natural" acting talents. I love the way the movie kept you on edge and the way Jennifer Lopez acted. She is an amazing actress and she always surprised me. I have watched all of her movies and I never got bored of them. I love this movie and I hope that it will be the next blockbuster success.

While this movie did have it's moments of "horror" I'm a little surprised that it did not receive a nomination for best picture. The main reason I gave it an 7 instead of an 8 was the fact that the director, Kevin Smith, had a very limited budget and could not have directed the movie to the level of perfection that he did. The cast is great, the story is believable and compelling, and the editing and photography are of the best I've seen in a movie. While this movie was not nominated for best picture, it does deserve some recognition. The best picture of 2004 will definitely be "Mulholland Drive" and that was a great movie. I just can't get over the fact that this movie is only getting 5.8 rating on this site. In my opinion, I would give this movie a 9 or 10, and the number is right on.

I didn't expect to like this movie, but I do. I expected a good horror movie that would stay with me. I have to say that I didn't expect it to be a great movie, but it was. The movie is about a group of teenagers, that are the same age as the adults in their high school. They are going to a college party and then decide to stay on the boat. After some weird stuff happen, they are picked up by the police and told that they are at a party on the nearby island. When they are told that it is all a joke, they decide to stay on the island. When the police arrive on the island, they find a lot of evidence, and find some dead bodies. The island turns out to be haunted and everyone starts to die one by one. There is a part where the movie was slowed down a bit and that made me laugh a little. I also liked the music and it wasn't too loud. There is some good acting and a great story. This movie is not scary, but it is a good story. I recommend it. I give it a 7/10.

What are you people going to do with this movie? You could just stick the name of the movie on the front of the box and call it The Channel. The movie is titled The Channel but it is actually the Animal Network. It was directed by Jake Brukhman, who directed the Animal Network movies. The Channel was shot in the Pacific Northwest, Washington, Oregon, and California. The filming locations were in Oregon, Washington, and Oregon City, California. The acting was good, as expected. This movie has a lot of disturbing scenes and was only made for the purpose of getting a movie into theaters. It is worth the watch if you are not looking for a movie to watch with your girlfriend or girlfriend. It is well worth the watch. This movie is not for everyone, but it does have a great plot and great acting. This movie is definitely worth watching.

The premise of this film is as old as the hills. A mother, as it were, wanders alone into a small town, tries to find a place to stay, and is quickly attacked by a group of criminals who want her daughter. But, unlike the other films in the genre, this one does not end with the mother's death. It is simply not a happy ending. A couple of months after the attack, the woman makes a new friend, who offers to help her return to her son. In a couple of days, the girl and her friend (who is also a woman) return to the mother, who has been raised in a mental institution. She does not want to go back, and does not know what to do. The main character has changed in a way that is not obvious to the viewer. However, this does not mean that the film is bad, for in fact, it is a fairly good film, with a good storyline and good acting, with the exception of the main character, who does not seem to be acting. In fact, the film is not even nearly as bad as it has been made out to be. But, the main problem is that the story is too predictable. The ending is not as bad as it has been made out to be, but it is not as good as it should be. But, like I said, this film is not bad, as it is a pretty good film. My vote is seven. Title (Brazil): "Enemigo" ("The Assassin")

It's a well made movie and well acted. However, the last 20 minutes of the movie is just completely unbelievable. I think it's just a wasted opportunity to really push the envelope in the horror genre. I give it 7/10 because I think it's still an interesting and well made movie. I've never been a huge fan of zombie movies and I think it's a good thing that this one took the trend to where it was.

I have to admit, I didn't see this film coming. I saw the trailer and it looked interesting, and a great way to kill some time before a nice week at the beach. And when I heard the plot synopsis, I thought it was very promising. A lone, fearless lone wolf who has a new-found faith in humanity and is willing to risk everything to save the ones he loves. And I was right! However, I was not expecting the film to be this entertaining. The film is extremely well made and the film is paced beautifully, there's nothing about this film that is a drag, the cinematography is beautiful and there's a very enjoyable soundtrack throughout the film. However, the film also has a very dark tone to it. The characters are not very likable and the acting is not great, but this is not the film's fault. If you are looking for a film that is fun, a nice way to kill a couple of hours, then this is a film for you. But, if you are looking for a film that is a bit disturbing, then I recommend you wait until it hits video.

A cult movie that stands the test of time. This movie was the beginning of a trend of pseudo-psychological movies that no one can make. I remember the old days when the movies were popular and made the "uneducated" laugh. This is one of those movies that will always have a cult following. This movie isn't really a horror movie but I think it is. The last 30 minutes are really worth it. The acting is good and the plot is interesting. The little girl acting was good as well.

The Channel is a film that has a very large cult following. It is interesting that many people who have seen it have a love of violence, even when the violence is not the way you would expect. A woman who finds out that her boyfriend of a few days is cheating on her and then her husband threatens her. She leaves her boyfriend and moves in with her sister. The sister takes advantage of the situation and decides to get revenge by killing her sister. She is the "Queen Bee" and she takes the "King Bee" on. The film is slow and there are a lot of scenes that don't make sense. But for those who like the style of the 80's this film is a must see. It has a very unique look and the style of the music is very unique. I highly recommend The Channel.

My problem with this film is that it doesn't really make sense. To be a better film you need to have a better script, but there isn't really a script. It just sort of happens. The acting is good. You could tell that the actors were having a lot of fun playing this film, and the director seems to have enjoyed the ride. I don't know if the script is good or not, but I do know that it doesn't make sense. If you want to watch this movie, I would say to avoid it. It's like watching a poorly written sketch show. If you're really into the genre, it may be worth it, but for me I just didn't get into the film at all.

Killer Joe is a 'killer' of the first order. He has a dark, blood-drenched personality and a taste for gore. However, he is no slasher, and neither is the killer. The movie has a good amount of gore, but only a few actually kill people. They are all like sitting ducks for the killer, who makes them kneel or take their shirts off. The movie moves at a good pace and has a bit of suspense. It has quite a few surprises and you will be wondering where it is going, and why the hell they are going there. It is not predictable, and you won't know where it is going until the very end. The acting is pretty good. I found the acting to be very believable. It's hard to say what this movie is trying to be, but it's not intended to be a horror movie. It is definitely a dark, gritty drama. This is the kind of movie that will make you think about your life and how it could be different if it were different. It is not a perfect movie, but it is better than most. It is worth a watch, but you will probably have to think about it a little while after you've seen it. The rating I gave it is a 7/10.

The Channel is a very different and disturbing horror movie from the most recent spate of mainstream horror. If you liked The Ring or The Grudge, you'll probably like The Channel. The Channel stars two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett (who is still the only actress to have won the Oscar for Best Actress in a British film) and William H. Macy. Cate Blanchett plays Sarah, a recently widowed mother who brings her six-year-old daughter Sarah to live with her mother, Jane, in an old Victorian house in the country. The only problem is that the house is haunted by the ghost of a dead woman who was killed by the current owner. Jane wants to sell the house and Sarah wants to stay with her. Meanwhile, a serial killer has been attacking Sarah, killing her mother and dumping her body in the woods. This is an unusual premise for a horror movie. The rest of the film is just a chase for Sarah to get away from the murderer and escape the house. The movie does have some very disturbing scenes, but it's mainly a movie about mental illness and death. The actors all do a great job and I recommend it. This film has a good, low budget look to it and it's really impressive that they had so many actors and actresses in the film. It's worth a look. It's also worth noting that some of the actors and actresses have appeared in other British horror films such as The Grudge. They all did a good job and it was really interesting to see them do this kind of work. The cast of The Channel has a good history of acting, so I think it's safe to say that this movie is worth checking out. There are a couple of other movies that I enjoyed, but this is one of the better British horror films of the last decade. There are some very good horror films out there, but The Channel is one of the best and I recommend it highly. It's worth a watch, but don't expect to be scared. It's more about a strong emotional story, a strong psychological story and a solid horror movie.

The classic example of a true horror film is, of course, the gory, high-wire act of a killer. The extreme cruelty of the gory stunts is a perfect example of the technical knowledge that goes into creating a movie like this. But it is the movie's honesty and integrity that make this such a worthwhile experience. As with any good film, it is easy to look at the best and the worst. In this case, it is easy to look at the worst, because it is very, very bad. So, when watching it, just don't worry about what you think of it. Just enjoy the film for what it is. It is not bad in the slightest, but it is certainly not good.
