I first saw this movie when it was first released in 1998. I was really into horror movies at the time. This movie was pretty bad. The main plot point of the movie was the main character goes to school and his dad is dead. The school is run by the vampire school and they have a bunch of other vampire kids. The school is run by the guy who looks like a cross between Freddy Kruger and an older version of Jason Voorhees. The main characters dad is a little smart, but is not a big part of the story. This movie was made a little over 5 years after I saw this movie. There was a new vampire movie with the same characters and same actor, and a new actor that looked a lot like the guy from the movie "Possession". It was called "The Possession". This movie was supposed to be good, but it wasn't. I thought the movie was horrible, but I watched it again and it was okay. It was bad, but it was okay. I don't think this movie was supposed to be good. This movie was pretty good, but it wasn't good. I think that is why I give this movie a 7/10.

I recently rented "The Transfiguration" and was expecting to find a film that could have been, at best, mediocre. I was shocked at how well-done it was. What makes this film great is not its quality acting, or its story. It is the way it is put together. It is a story that is both coherent and believable. The acting is solid, but the only actors who really stood out to me were Matthew Fox and Keanu Reeves. Reeves' portrayal of Harry Potter was very good and very believable. He was the main reason I was drawn to this film and gave it a solid 8/10. He was perfect for the part. Fox was also very good, but was the wrong actor for the role of Snape. Fox is not a particularly handsome actor, but he brought the character to life and gave it a sense of realism. This film, and the original novel, will likely be forgotten, but "The Transfiguration" should be a great addition to any collection of Harry Potter films.

Director Terry Gilliam had a hand in both the Harry Potter films and the stage play by Neil Jordan, with the film being a sequel. So it is no surprise that the film would look, sound and feel like a stage production. This is not a bad thing, just an unusual one. The performances are fine, especially by Danny Dyer as the twisted Hogwarts student, and Cate Blanchett as a harried witch trying to keep the evil inside of her in check. However, I would have preferred a bit more drama in the film, as well as a bit more characterisation of the character of James Potter. It is not the worst film I've seen, but it certainly is not the best either. The performances are the only thing that can redeem this film.

A gothic style take on the Salem Witch Trials, but at least in this case, the witches are all hideous creatures with the capacity to talk, and the solution to the murders is found by a magical amulet that causes visions of the past to come true. The casting of Sam Neill as the headstrong and self-reliant Harry Potter is very effective. The film is shot in sepia and very atmospheric, and the acting is very good, particularly from the lead. The setting is wonderfully creepy and atmospheric, and the dialogue is just right for a gothic thriller. I enjoyed this movie, and I recommend it.

One of the best films of the 90's.I don't know if it is the best film ever, but it is one of the best of its type. I just love this film. The film is about an ordinary young boy (Ian McKellen) who is not given any special treatment, is looked at by a strange girl (Michelle Pfeiffer), and in turn, becomes obsessed with her. He spends all his time reading about girls. He gets a tattoo of a flower on his arm, and this attracts the attention of a creepy old man (Christopher Lee). He takes the tattoo to a graveyard, where he finds it's an image of a beautiful woman. He is mesmerized by the image, and he decides to stay there, and he becomes the young man. He discovers that he is different, and he gets dressed in her clothing, and he meets a boy, and they form a love relationship. And what is going to happen? Is he going to be with the girl, or with the boy? And there is a series of events that are not planned. The plot is great, and I like that it is simple and is very enjoyable. I love the sequence in which the boys are looking for the girl, the first part is great, I love the love story, and I love the part in which they decide to stay at the graveyard. The acting is great, Ian McKellen is fantastic, and it is a shame that he only got nominated for an Oscar. I give this film a 10/10. I am giving it a 10/10 because of the originality and the way the plot is told. I am giving it a 9/10 because it is a film that I would recommend to my friends, and I would like to see it again.

A witch (Angelina Jolie) is dead, her ghost haunting a young boy (Dylan Minnette) and his sister (Katie Holmes). The story begins with the girl's birth, but goes on to a series of events that lead to the death of the witch. A nice little horror/thriller from the producers of "The Sixth Sense." There are some good scenes in the movie, including the very first meeting of the girl and the ghost, as well as the scenes at the end when the ghost wanders around the grounds of the small family home, just looking for a dead body. Jolie and Minnette are good, but Holmes is a very good actress, but she doesn't get much screen time. The movie is fairly scary, but it could have used a bit more suspense.

Very good performances, but I was never completely convinced. The same was true for "The Blair Witch Project" and "The Lost Boys." "The Transfiguration" is an artistic achievement, but I doubt I'll be so impressed again. It's a good film, but I could have done without the Michael Keaton and Kate Beckinsale. Still, the film is highly recommended for fans of English language movies. 7 out of 10.

A fine movie, but the story line was poorly explained, it did not make sense and the ending was so ridiculous that it just got me to shake my head. I mean, how many times do you have to tell the story of a character going to the bathroom in a dark room to do his business? I think the director and the writers just needed to get some actual help in writing. Other than that, it was an excellent movie and a very dark comedy. I thought the movie was about love, but it was really more about the struggle of being the good and the bad and the struggle of being in love. I thought the acting was good, the lighting was good, and the movie had a lot of humor and a good story. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good movie.

I am not a Harry Potter fan but I am an Harry Potter fan and this movie was amazing. The movie was great and the whole "Harry is a witch" thing was so awesome. All the things were made so much better than in the book and the movie had such an incredible plot. I was not expecting this movie to be as good as it was. I think that this movie should have gotten a lot more attention. The plot was great and I think that everyone would enjoy this movie. Everyone is going to have a great time watching this movie. If you like this movie, I recommend the books, "The Half-Blood Prince" and "Deathly Hallows: Part 2" because they are amazing. I think that the movie will be a great hit and I hope that it will be the next big hit. This movie is one of the best movies ever and I think that everyone should see it. It is worth every penny and I can't wait for the movie to come out. I think that everyone should see this movie and see the plot of this movie. It was a great movie and I would recommend it to everyone.

The Transfiguration is another one of those films that is so interesting and scary that it is hard to put it down. The Transfiguration was directed by David Cronenberg and it stars Emma Thompson and Philip Seymour Hoffman. The film is about a teenage girl, Susan (Emma Thompson), who is raped by a school bully, which causes her to be transferred to a state school. As she is in this new school, she meets a few girls who are new to school, including one named Katie (Meryl Streep). The two girls are extremely close and begin to get along. The girls start to fall in love with each other, and Susan starts to become more and more afraid of her new life. The Transfiguration was directed by David Cronenberg, the same director who directed the psychological thriller, Se7en. The film is a psychological thriller, and it is a good psychological thriller because the plot is fascinating and the story is not that predictable. There is a lot of suspense in this film, especially in the first half of the film, when the plot is very exciting and you don't know what is going to happen. The film is also very scary because it is a psychological thriller, and it is very scary because it is a thriller. This film is extremely good and is worth seeing, but it is not very popular. The Transfiguration is also very underrated and is not very popular. 7/10

The Transfiguration is an excellent, atmospheric and affecting horror movie, based on the novel by Marlowe and starring Mark Wahlberg as Harry James Potter, who returns to his Hogwarts class to find that the book of "OotP" has been mysteriously and mysteriously turned into a film. What makes the film so much more effective is the fantastic performances by both Harry and Ron Weasley, who both turn in incredible performances. Ron is so real and sympathetic, while Harry, the popular, popular kid from the north-east of England, is terrifying and captivating. The script is also excellent and the special effects are well-done, as well. I also loved the fact that the plot of the film is also original, though it does somewhat follow the book, it still does a good job of bringing the characters to life. My favorite part of the film is definitely the scenes between Harry and Ron, who really do carry the film. The comedy between them is extremely well-done, and they actually make you laugh out loud. I also loved the scenes between Harry and Snape, who really add a lot to the film. The chemistry between the two actors is outstanding, and I really felt like they were friends. My favorite scene in the film is the most dramatic, and is between Harry and Snape, as they are searching for the truth about the film. They are walking through the woods in silence, looking for signs of life. They look for a mirror that has been placed in the woods, and it appears that they find a mirror that shows them a scene from "OotP". Harry is frightened and finds that the mirror is only a mirror. He is unable to understand the implications of the scene, and he tells Snape that he has been getting "off on this little secret" and that he should just go back to the professor. Snape seems to be thinking about it, and he finally tells Harry that the book of "OotP" is in fact a film. The two of them take the book back to the school, and are led into the movie-and it ends with the two of them standing in front of the camera. Harry is just shocked, and says "You're being serious." Snape says "It's a film." Harry says "It's an old book. Why would I think that it's real?" Snape says "I don't know, I'm not a doctor." This really was an excellent movie, and it was really well-done

Here's a film that does an excellent job of not staying true to its source material. I've never seen Harry Potter, but I've read the books and I was expecting a film that would follow the book, but was pleasantly surprised with a film that is completely original. It's also surprisingly well acted, especially by Emma Watson as Albus Dumbledore, but no, this film is not as good as the book. This film actually succeeds in one of the biggest aspects of its success. The film is set in the 70s, and the film doesn't take place in the 1970s, it takes place in the 70s. So if you've never read the books, don't worry. It's not a problem. If you haven't read the books, then this is an excellent film for you. It has wonderful special effects and excellent camera work, the performances are great and the score is wonderful. All in all, this film is an excellent adaptation of the book, it has very little to do with the book, but is a wonderful film, it's a big improvement over the last films. I recommend it to anyone who has read the books, because if you haven't, you won't be disappointed.

The Transfiguration was an excellent film, based on the Harry Potter books. It was about as good as the first film, but it is much better in many ways. The first film was excellent, but the book was more interesting. The movie had some interesting twists and turns. There was some humor in the film, like a bit of a love story between Ginny and Ron, which I did not see coming. It was not a great movie, but it was an excellent film. The only thing I could have done without was the "just a little bit of kissing" bit. It seemed to be out of place and ruined the film for me. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes the Harry Potter series. I also would recommend this film to anyone who wants to see how a film should be done.

Okay, so I finally have a copy of this film that I can actually sit down and watch it without being rushed by the fast cuts and close ups. It has it's flaws, but at the end of the day it's a very good movie that I think would be very good to be on TV or something. This film was made back in the 80's so I would expect it to be dated and looked at more like it was made for a younger audience. I was surprised by how well it played out and it had some really cool scenes that had me on the edge of my seat. All in all, I think it's worth watching and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is into a scary movie and I also think it's a great film to watch at night or with the lights off. If you're a fan of the horror genre, then this film is definitely for you.

The Transfiguration is one of the better transposition of the Harry Potter movies to the screen, it's a nice change of pace from the other movies, and I did enjoy the movie as a whole. While the acting was good from all actors, I would have to give the nod to Emma Watson, who was extremely strong as the leading lady, and who played her character quite well. Daniel Radcliffe was also great as Harry, but for some reason, I felt Emma Watson was a bit too annoying at times, and not believable. Overall, I think the movie was good, it had some good moments, and was fun to watch, but I think the acting was a little over the top at times, which I would have to admit, was a little annoying at times, and Emma Watson was a little annoying. I would recommend this movie, but I would not say you should watch it, it's not a very big budget movie, but it's worth a watch.

I've been waiting for this movie for about a year now and I'm glad I did. The story is very reminiscent of other movies like "The Sixth Sense", "Carrie", and "Being John Malkovich" but it's not the same. In a way, this movie reminds me of a horror movie like "Silence of the Lambs". This movie has a very dark and creepy atmosphere. The actors are great, especially the main lead Tom. This movie is a little bit slow and some of the scenes don't really seem to be necessary. But all in all, the movie is great and definitely worth the watch.

There are two ways of looking at the Transfiguration: as a story of fear, and as a story of creativity. In the movie, it is as much about the transfiguration as the Battle of Hogwarts, but we also get to see Snape's attempt to create a potion that can change Harry Potter, and his eventual disillusionment with Dumbledore. As far as the story is concerned, it is very funny, but I think it lacks the charm that the book had. It seems to take forever to get going, and it never gets to the point where you feel like you have a great deal of closure. The film is a much better work than the book, but it still feels like a movie at times, which is disappointing because the book was such a great read. I recommend this film, if you are a Harry Potter fan, or if you enjoy magical stories that are a little more psychological than your standard horror movie. 7/10

Some of the other reviewers here are having a field day with the first half of this film. I'm not going to take that lightly. The first half was rough and tumble, but for some reason I got sucked in and thought, "Wow, this movie has the makings of a great horror/thriller." The second half of the film (the most interesting part of the film) is a great deal of fun. It's a full-out, modernized version of "The House of Usher" (1973) with a touch of "Exorcist" thrown in. It's not for everyone, but it is well worth the watch. It may be just a little too dark for younger children, but the gory bits are very intense and will keep most adults interested. It's worth the rental price, and should be put in the rental queue for the Halloween season. I'd give it a "7" if I could.

I watched this film twice in a row, as it became more and more repulsive with each viewing. This was the second film I have seen that was rated "R" (in my opinion) and that was on TV in the late 90s/early 2000s. I like both films, but if you want a true horror film, watch "The Grudge". My rating: 7/10.

The first time I saw this movie, I was sitting in my living room, on a rainy Saturday afternoon. My dad was out, and he asked if I wanted to watch a movie. He thought that it was something that I might enjoy, so he decided to take me along. I went to the video store, picked up the movie, and was excited to watch it. I had seen the previews, and was expecting something scary and/or spooky. What I got was a good movie, but one that had a different theme. The movie is about a girl who is at a junior high school. She is going to school with a classmate, and they both seem to be friends, but the friend seems to be weird, and he has strange habits. Then she begins to hear a strange voice that she doesn't recognize. She starts hearing strange voices in her head, and eventually realizes that there is something evil in her head, and she must fight it. This movie was different from other horror movies, and I liked it. I thought that the movie was interesting, and different than other horror movies. I was also surprised at how well the director of this movie did. I felt that this movie was worth watching. The acting was good, the camera work was great, and I thought that this movie had some interesting ideas, and I would recommend it to others. I give this movie a B+.

I really enjoyed this movie and thought it was a well made film. It was suspenseful and creepy. I enjoyed how the story ended, I did not see that happening in the book. I thought that the ending was very good and I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes movies like "Saw" or "The Others" or even "Silence of the Lambs." The acting was good and the special effects were great. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes horror movies.

For some reason, this is the only Harry Potter movie that I've watched. I don't really care for it too much, and when I think of how much I disliked the first one, it's hard to not be disappointed. I do like the acting, and I liked the story, but that's it. For me, that's all that was worth watching. It was pretty interesting to watch, but I don't think I'll ever watch it again. I think the fact that it was shot in the 80's was also a plus. It had a feel of a book. I think it would've been better with better actors and better production values.

The Transfiguration is one of the best films I've seen in a while. I'm not sure I've seen any that's as good as it is. Its story is unusual in that it uses two sets of actors, one male and one female, to tell the same story. Both sets of actors play different roles. Both sets of actors are different ages. I thought that was unique in a horror film. This is not your typical horror film. The Transfiguration is a disturbing and scary film. The story was set in a school where students are forced to stay in a mental hospital until the end of the school year. The old people were particularly strange. One of the students, who had been staying with the old people for a while, has been locked in the hospital. He is unable to speak for the rest of the film. The director of the hospital used a few special effects to try to get the audience's attention. It worked. This movie is not for everyone. It does have some graphic scenes, and I think that people who are easily disturbed will not like this movie. There is nudity and sex in this film. I think the sex scenes in this movie were more effective than the ones in The Shining. The director of this film did a good job of showing the old people as monsters. There is a scene that is very disturbing. There are many scenes that are disturbing. There is a scene that makes you jump in your seat. The camera angles were very well done. I would recommend this film to anyone who is willing to be disturbed. The film is not for the faint of heart.
