I had heard about this movie for quite a while before I finally watched it. And I must say, it's actually a pretty good movie. The plot is not great, but the actors are great. There are a few problems with the film, but the film overall is very good. I would say it's better than the Paranormal Activity movies. I also have to say, this is a very good horror movie. It's also a good thriller movie. If you don't like horror movies, then don't watch this movie, because this is definitely not for you.

I don't like horror films, but I love this one. It's a little bit silly but it's a bit scary, the story is good and the cast is good. I would recommend it to horror fans, but not to people who like a movie with a lot of action and gore.

When the 'Vampire Count' Marky(played by Adam Brody) gets off his island prison ship and gets in touch with the intelligence of the guards, he finds that they are living an unbelievable nightmare. As Marky is brought into the interrogation room where the prisoners are being tortured, he begins to question the reality of it all. This is an intense and horrifying film that shows us how little we really know about life. From torture to death, we see a horror that never ends. What makes this film so interesting is that it keeps you on your toes and on the edge of your seat as you try to figure out what is really going on and what is the truth. Adam Brody plays Marky well and he gives a great performance that is convincing and convincing. All the other actors that played in this film also did a great job. The reason this film is so good is because it is a real thought provoking movie that you are never sure what is real and what is not. The beginning is very slow and the beginning is very scary as you are waiting for something to happen and then something else happens. However, it picks up and it is a very well written and filmed movie. It is also very suspenseful and you never know what is going to happen next. The film is very hard to watch because it is so hard to figure out what is real and what is not. This is one of the best films of 2007 and it is a must see for any horror fan.

A young woman (Mandy Moore) is kidnapped by a group of drug-dealing psychos and held in a secluded cabin in the woods. She is threatened by some nasty people who have tracked her down and are ready to kill her if she doesn't do what they say. As the film progresses, the authorities start to wonder if she's in fact crazy. This film was obviously very much a budget movie. While it's very scary and it definitely is effective, the film's only real strength is in its ability to keep you guessing. If you were to just let the film wash over you, you would think that this is the scariest movie in the world. But if you try to take it too seriously, you will end up losing interest and falling asleep. The performances were good and the editing and story were very good. If you liked "The Sixth Sense" or "A Nightmare on Elm Street" you'll like this one as well. I give it a solid 7/10.

I read the other reviews and I get the feeling that many people are frustrated with the movie. I understand that it is not an original concept and is certainly not for all tastes. I understand that this is not what the movie was suppose to be, and I would not like to criticise the movie for that. I saw the movie with an open mind, and I think that most of the people who have posted negative comments have been so disturbed by the movie that they have lost all sense of appreciation for it. I think that it's a film that is worth watching, just because it is not an original idea and not for everyone. If you are not able to appreciate the dark, twisted, and quirky nature of the story and the unusual plot twists, then do not see this movie. It is an interesting film, and it deserves to be seen. I really enjoyed it. My only concern is that I would not like to see another movie with the same idea. I think that a movie can be a great piece of work, even if it is not original.

I saw this at the 2002 San Diego Film Festival and was pleasantly surprised to see so many well-known faces in this one-the likes of Kenneth Branagh, James Coburn, and the late great Christopher Lee. While I still have a little trouble believing that the director (Andrew Jones) was in fact in New York City in 1999 when filming, I can't help but wonder if it was a setup for a sequel. I'm curious to see what director James Laxton did next. Maybe he was in LA in 1999. Maybe he was in New York. Maybe he was actually in 1999. It's a fascinating, moody, and well-made movie. I liked how it didn't get too much in the way of character development for many of the actors. They were all adults, which kept things more real. Some of the minor characters were annoying, but I wasn't bothered by it. In a similar vein, there was one scene where I had trouble believing that they were in the present day. It was supposed to be "16 years later" but they were wearing the same outfits as the last time they saw each other. I have no idea why they kept wearing the same outfits. Maybe they were preparing for the next film. This one's for fans of cinema who like to have their stories told and have a good time.

I'm not going to talk about the plot, or the ending, but it's the one that I personally found the most intriguing. What I think made the film better was the fact that there was no boring moments in between the characters, or in between the scenes that were supposed to be the focus of the film. All in all I really enjoyed the movie, but I didn't feel like I was sitting in a room watching a film. I felt like I was at a party, with people that I didn't know, and I was not sure if I was part of the group. There were times when I could have just gone home, but the people I was with were great and it felt like I was part of the group, and I was learning about them, and I felt like I was connected to them, and it was fun. I enjoyed the film and I enjoyed the characters, and it was entertaining, and I liked the fact that there wasn't an ending, I just went to watch a movie, and that's it. If you're looking for a thriller that's not boring, this is not the film for you, but if you're looking for a movie that's going to make you feel like you're part of the group, this is it.

I have seen this movie on several occasions, and I still think it is pretty damn good. It had a lot of elements that I liked. It had a very unique story, with some rather interesting elements. I liked the storyline, and I thought the movie was just a bit too slow, but I thought it was a great movie to watch. I would recommend this movie to anyone looking for something a bit different. I think the ending of this movie was a little predictable, but I thought it was still pretty good. I think I would watch it again. I definitely recommend this movie.

I was skeptical about this film, it was listed as a horror film but it isn't scary. It was interesting to me because it was supposed to be a psychological thriller, but that was not really what I thought. It was the idea that the film was based on a true story that made it interesting. There is a part of me that doesn't know if I like it or not. But I have to say that it was really interesting. It is about a woman who discovers that she can see the future. She finds herself being manipulated by her husband who wants her to find her missing daughter and discover that it is not her daughter. It also touches on the idea that people do strange things to people. The movie itself is about her discovery and I think the idea of it is very interesting. I don't know if it is the good acting and directing, but it is interesting.

Director David Ayer's "The Shape of Water" is an unusual, sci-fi thriller that doesn't quite fit into the genre or the blockbuster "Hollywood" mold. Ayer has not only attempted to make a film about the life and death of a struggling but critically acclaimed actor with a lost career, but he has also created a character who could be played by any actor who has a deep understanding of film. In the tradition of "The Shawshank Redemption", "The Green Mile" and "The Silence of the Lambs", the movie presents a story with an ambiguous ending that keeps the audience guessing about the fate of the main character, and the twists that are meant to be in the movie. The result is that the film doesn't quite go where the viewer expected, but instead seems to be at times confusing or even confusing the viewer and the story it is trying to tell. The cast is perfect, and is pretty much what you would expect from a film that is set in a marine aquarium and is about marine life. The acting is fantastic and the suspense is very well executed. The only aspect that is lacking is the chemistry between the main characters, which is sometimes a bit weak, and also the conclusion, which is rather abrupt and disappointing. Overall, "The Shape of Water" is a highly recommended film to see. It's a great story, it's an interesting sci-fi thriller and it's an excellent film for the genre of film. However, if you are a fan of David Ayer's other work, I would suggest that you stay away from this film. It is worth seeing, but definitely not recommended.

In my opinion, this film is a masterful and at times shocking thriller. This is definitely one of the most disturbing films I've ever seen, and one of the best of its kind. The story follows a woman who finds out that she is a genetic experiment. She is given a sample of her blood and is given a brain. Her brain is then taken back to her body and used to put her in a coma. She begins to develop psychotic episodes as well as other symptoms of the condition. I find that I cannot watch this film because of the shocking nature of it. I found it to be very disturbing, and I would recommend this film to anyone who is looking for a good thriller.

This is a very well made film and is well worth a watch. The film is well written, well directed, well shot and well acted. The acting by Samuel L. Jackson and Kevin Bacon is very good. The film does have some problems, and I think that if the director had made the film a little more intense it would have been a much better film. There is a lot of violence in this film and there are some parts that are not necessary for the film. There is some language in the film, but I would say that is not necessary for the film. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes to see a good thriller with some action.

I found this movie to be very intriguing and a very good thriller. I feel that it was a good mix of Sci-fi, Thriller and Horror. I found it interesting how the movie started out with a child abductor who abducts a child to a group of friends who each have a different psychological disorder. We also get to learn that some of the group's children have psychological disorders in common. I found the story very interesting and thought provoking. The acting was great and I felt that it was very well cast. The actors played the parts very well and I think that they did an excellent job. I felt that the movie did a good job in explaining how a child's personality and personality traits are influenced by their environment and how their personalities change. I felt that the movie went in a good direction and the ending was very good. The only part of the movie that I felt was a bit weak was that some of the twists were not really that big. Overall, I thought that the movie was very well done. It was good and entertaining. It is worth seeing and I would recommend it to anyone who likes Sci-Fi or Horror.

I've watched this movie several times now. It's one of those rare, short movies that you watch more than once. It really reminds me of the short story that it's based on. The director, Eric Singer, is one of the most talented filmmakers in the business. He is very talented at capturing the essence of a story in a short amount of time. This is also true in the original short story. The story is about an escaped killer (played by the late, great, S. Epatha Merkerson) who is captured in a mad scientist's lab. The mad scientist sends him to a place where there are creatures that are not human. This is when he meets a man named Dave (played by the late, great, Oscar winner, John C. McGinley). Dave does not like what he's seeing, and doesn't want to be part of it. This creates a conflict between them. What follows is a great movie. The director uses a good amount of lighting to create a bleak, depressing, and sad feeling. I like the way the camera moves around and focuses on the characters. There are a few twists in the story that makes it interesting. Some of the best parts of this movie are when they show how the characters react to the events they are involved in. I give this movie a 8 out of 10. I definitely recommend you see this movie.

I went to see the movie with an open mind, which I thought would be a good thing. I found the movie very interesting, but that is not to say it is a great movie. I have to say that I felt the first 20 minutes of the movie were slow. However, when the movie started to pick up, I thought the movie was actually good. It is definitely worth watching.

The best horror movie in years, this is a well thought out story of a man trapped in a mental institution and the people that come between him and his freedom. The story is very well thought out and the actors are very good. The character of the "Burglar" was very well played by Will Smith, and his relationship with the other characters was very well done. I will have to see this movie a few more times to get the full story of this film, but in the mean time I give it a 7 out of 10. It has a good story and great acting.

I can't believe I'm writing this review, but I don't really like zombies. They're ugly, messy and generally not at all scary. So, I'm not really a fan. I had heard that there were people who hated zombies. I decided to give it a chance, not because I was planning to see it, but because of the reviews I read. And I have to say, I really liked this movie. I just didn't like zombies in the same way. Not because of the quality of the acting, but because of the kind of zombies they were. I don't want to spoil it for you, but this movie is one of those movies that, while it may be entertaining to watch, it just isn't as scary as the reviews made it out to be. I know people who are fans of zombies and they loved this movie. But to me, it was a little too gruesome for my taste. I mean, if you're going to make a movie about zombies, they should have some sort of "monster" or something to scare you. In this movie, you don't get that. You don't get a "monster" but you do get a fairly creepy feeling when you see it. That's a good thing, I guess. It was a nice twist in the movie, but it was a little too much for me. I don't want to spoil it for you, but, even though it wasn't the best zombie movie I've ever seen, it was still a good one. It wasn't the best movie I've ever seen, but it was a good one. It wasn't perfect, but it was a good one.

This film has a great cast, a fantastic plot and a lot of great scenes. It's a film that demands to be watched again and again, to see the subtle changes in the way the characters react to different situations. The camera angles, the camera angles, the camera angles! I have to say that this film is worth a watch, the director definitely knows how to capture the viewer and I would recommend to anyone to watch this film.

I'm a sucker for a good horror movie, and this one was definitely one of the better ones in the genre. I love it when I go to the cinema, and it makes me want to go back and see it again and again. Well the film is actually a horror/suspense, but it is very entertaining and has a good story. It also is very different from other horror movies and you have to see it to understand it. The cast is very good, all the actors do a great job, and the film itself is very well made. The camera work is fantastic and the atmosphere is awesome. I highly recommend this film.

I wanted to see this movie, as I have been looking for a good horror movie. I was not disappointed, it had a nice plot, great actors, and great music, with a twist. The main plot is about two teenagers who go into a small town to get a girlfriend, and find out that a serial killer is killing off girls. This movie has a great plot, which is exciting, and original. I think the ending was quite scary, and I thought it was very good. There are parts where the actors do a good job. The acting of the other characters was good, they did not overact. It was believable. This is not a horror movie, it is a drama, and the plot is quite good. I think this movie is a good horror movie, and it is not the most original movie, but it is a good one. I think this movie is recommended, but if you are not a horror fan, you should not see this movie, as you will not enjoy it.

Great look, great look. The movie has a lot of tension and a lot of suspense. Some things are unclear, like when the third prisoner is brought in, what's her purpose in the prison, but I guess we'll get to that. The story is more suspenseful than the previous one. The characters are well-developed. The acting was very good, but some actors were forced into a certain role. Not to mention the script, and the fact that the director had to make some changes to the story to make it more exciting, more mysterious, more shocking. This is a great movie, and I don't recommend it for the faint of heart.
