I loved this film. I think it was the best horror film of the last 10 years. It is amazing that this film was able to be made in the UK and still be a success. This film is a very well made film and it is beautifully shot. The cinematography is excellent. The story is simple and yet it has a really good plot. The characters are really well made. There are many subtle and not so subtle things that you can see the director was trying to get across. The actors are all really good. The main character, played by Mike Myers, is brilliant and his performance is fantastic. This is a film that is not going to be enjoyed by everyone but I really loved it and I would definitely recommend it.

Wes Craven is the one man who makes these films and he never misses an opportunity to make the audience jump, grab their coat and watch out for the next scene. The cast of this film was great, including Neeson, Daniels, and the great Tommy Lee Jones. I must say that the film did not live up to the hype and I did not find it to be scary at all, but a great story that should not be missed.

I just watched this film on HBO. The story is amazing. I saw this film a few days ago and it still has not left my mind. It is a very good movie. The actors are good and the story is a good one. The ending is good too. The only thing I have to complain about is that the movie is a little long. I would like to see the movie again and see what I missed. I think it is one of the best films I have ever seen. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes a good mystery. I give this film a 10 out of 10. Thank you for reading.

I recently viewed this movie on DVD and was blown away. The acting was amazing, the story was fascinating and the suspense was unrelenting. It's a must-see!

This is an interesting, though slightly less than normal, black comedy film. The story is very original and well thought out. The acting is good and the direction is excellent. The story is about a girl, the daughter of a wealthy banker who has been kidnapped by a group of bad guys, some of them are his own family. The girl has to choose between her father and her kidnapped brother. The girl does not know her father, but is convinced that she will be better off with him. The film has some very funny moments. It's a nice film, a definite film to see.

I watched this film because it was playing at the local movie theatre. It was well worth the wait. It's a bit slow in the beginning, but I really enjoyed the slow pace of the film. The ending is very ambiguous and could have gone either way. I found the film to be very artistic, as well as being an effective mystery. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes mystery films, although it is definitely not a film for everyone.

This is one of the best vampire films I have ever seen. I am not a big fan of the vampire genre. I prefer a more traditional story, and more emotional. This film, however, is more about the character development and the development of the story. It is like a good horror film, and an excellent drama. The story line is well thought out and will make you think. The acting is superb. This is a must see. I am sure that many will watch this film and love it. I am certain that many will like this film, and they will become a fan of this great film.

Saw this on its original broadcast in England. The casting is perfect. The performances are phenomenal, especially from the female lead, who is certainly one of the finest leading women of our time. I loved the combination of her and Johnny Depp. The story was not so much about a murder, but about a different kind of murder, which is so different from the usual killer you might expect, but is so hard to ignore. This movie is also really good, because of the use of both music and sound, both of which work well together. If you like a really good movie, this one is for you.

I thought this was a very well made movie. The acting was great, and it had some good surprises in it. It was not a "what if" movie, but it was definitely a movie that kept you guessing until the end. I think this movie would have been a great film to show in a film class. I would recommend this movie to anyone, but be prepared to be very disappointed if you don't like it.

When I first saw this movie I didn't know what to expect. A small indie horror film from the mid-to-late nineties. However, after seeing it I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have been surprised. This film is based on a true story, about a mother and her daughters who lost their house and their lives in a tornado that hit the area. The daughter, Rebecca, and the mother, Jane, have been estranged for many years, until the tornado strikes, and they meet again. The daughter is a professional writer who is in need of a new job, and she wants to write for a small, independent magazine. The mother, who has been retired for years, is taking care of her son, and is happy to see his mother on the mend. However, the daughter, who has been living in a very small house, is having problems at work, and decides to move into the house she shares with her daughter. They have a very small problem, but a very big problem, when the tornado strikes. The tornado is extremely powerful, and not a single person survives. The movie is very tense, and the characters are well-written. The acting is great, with a solid cast. I especially enjoyed the performance of R. Lee Ermey, as the husband, who is a recovering alcoholic. He shows his vulnerability in a very effective way. There are a few strong performances, like Daniel Craig, who plays the father of the daughter, who is a former military man, and has been sober for about ten years. He is a caring father, who has made some mistakes, but has learned his lesson. The movie is very well-done, and I highly recommend it.

I enjoyed this movie a lot. It was definitely not as bad as some people are making it out to be. I am a movie critic and I'm usually pretty hard on movies but I loved this one. The story was well-done, the characters were believable, and the music was very good. It is a little slow at the beginning, but as it goes on, it becomes more and more entertaining. The acting was pretty good as well. The main character of the movie was a very good actor, but I didn't feel like he was given much screen time, so I didn't really get to know him that well. That is not to say that he wasn't good, he was. The movie was made in the 1980's, which is when the horror genre really began to take off. It has that vintage feel to it, but that's not a bad thing. It's a nice film, and if you're into the genre, you should check it out. I thought it was very entertaining, and I recommend it to any horror movie fan.

What a great movie. If you are into crime movies you have to see this one. There are lots of twists and turns that make the movie even more interesting. It is also well acted and really well directed. This is one of the best crime movies I have seen. The director is known for making movies about crime, so it is safe to say that this is one of his best. This is a movie you should see. I really liked this movie, and I think you should too. This is a movie that you should see. You will not be disappointed.

I just saw this movie for the first time. I was a little skeptical because I hadn't read the book and didn't really know what to expect. I am so glad I saw it. It was a really great movie and the characters were so well written. The plot is very well thought out and the acting was great. I am so glad I finally saw it and I can't wait to see it again. This movie is a must see for horror fans!

I don't know what to say. I've seen this movie 3 times, and each time I am blown away by the sheer power of the story. I was only 6 years old when I first saw this movie, and it was a major part of my childhood. I was so immersed in it that I couldn't wait to see it again. This movie is a masterpiece, and should be seen by anyone who is a fan of the genre. I can't say enough about it. It is a masterpiece of the horror genre, and I recommend anyone who hasn't seen it to do so.

I'm a big fan of zombie movies. The original "Zombieland" was very good. "The Walking Dead" is a classic. "Night of the Living Dead" is not only a great movie, but a very good zombie movie. This one is in a class of its own. I'm a big fan of Guy Pearce, and I think he is one of the best actors working today. He was great in this movie. And the movie is just one long, very intense and exciting ride. There are some parts that I really didn't understand at first, but I got it after a few minutes. There are some parts that are so slow and boring that it really gets annoying. I don't know why this movie has such a low rating. This is definitely a great movie and I highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.

I didn't expect much from this movie. I was wrong. I was blown away. The movie starts off with an "oh, the horror!" as the opening credits start rolling. I've never seen a movie this scary before. It starts off slow, but not in a bad way. I never get bored watching this movie. I can't get enough of the suspense, the darkness, and the music. It's not a horror movie, but a psychological drama. The movie keeps you guessing as to who's going to survive the night. The plot is a little thin at first, but it picks up. The characters are very likable and you can see why they're doing what they're doing. The story is not your typical story, but it's believable and interesting. There are some surprising twists that keep you on the edge of your seat. The last few scenes are very creepy and it's very surprising. This movie is a little slow at first, but it picks up as the movie goes on. I think this movie deserves all of it's high praise.

I was in a happy mood and went to see this film, with the full expectation that it would be a depressing experience. I was surprised and had a good time. The film does not contain any gore or shocking images, but it is still a good film, with some suspense, and some unexpected twists. There are some scenes that are not necessary to the plot, but it is not that it is bad. It is just that the viewer does not need to know how it will end. This is not the case in other films, where the plot does not need to be known at all. The performances are good, and I think that it is very good for a small budget film. I think that the director did a good job, with a lot of work, and it is a very good film.

The film is not only a great movie, but it is a great movie that you should watch. The story is about a girl who falls in love with a man. I have never seen a movie that deals with this subject matter. There is not much that you can say about the movie. The acting is very good, the directing is great and the story is fantastic. I have watched this movie 5 times and i think it is a great movie. If you want to see a good movie with a great story, then you should watch this movie.

My favorite movie. I have seen it at least 10 times, and I still get a chills every time. The most surprising thing about this movie is the way the director managed to make a thriller without a lot of blood. All the other slasher films have been doing that for a while. This one has a lot of interesting characters and a lot of interesting situations. I love the ending. I hope to see more of this director. I recommend this movie to everyone who likes a good thriller or horror movie.

I saw this movie in a theater when it came out in the mid-80's. I was about 15 at the time, and it was a great movie. I was a very dark-haired kid and it was a very dark movie. The acting was great, especially from Christopher Walken, who played the role of the sadistic mad doctor. The movie was about a small town where the town doctor has killed many people and is still active. The town is being threatened by the town's insane doctor, who is the town's "Bough Breaker" (in the movie). It is a very well-written movie and I recommend it to anyone who likes a dark-haired horror movie. It is very good. If you like a good movie, you will like this one. It is one of my favorite movies of all time. I recommend it to everyone who likes a good movie. This is a great movie. It is not for kids, but it is a great movie for adults.

This is a brilliant film. The characters are well developed and the script is clever and well written. The story line is well written and the ending is fantastic. It is well worth watching.

When I first heard about this movie, I was expecting a typical made-for-TV horror flick with no special effects. What I got was a very different experience. The movie starts off slow, with the setting of the hospital being very similar to the hospital in Jaws. The story of the movie is very slow, but it is done very well. The movie is full of suspense and mystery. It is not the typical horror flick with an explanation as to what is going on. There are many characters that you may not see coming. The movie is very well done, and I highly recommend it. The movie does not have a lot of special effects, but it does have a lot of suspense. The movie is very interesting, and I would recommend this movie to anyone. 9/10

I was skeptical when I heard this was a film based on a novel, but I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't think this film would live up to the book, but I was right. This is the first film that really made me feel the emotional connection between the characters. I loved the film because it gave me a connection with the characters that I could not have imagined. It was really refreshing to see that there are many different cultures, and that most people are not black and white. The story has a little twist in it, but I don't want to give it away. I hope that everyone will enjoy the film, and it's one that you will not forget!

I was skeptical about this movie. The premise was so contrived, the characters so over-the-top, the story so unbelievable. But the movie turned out to be a wonderful surprise. The actors did a fantastic job, the film was engaging, and the ending was very shocking and unexpected. This movie is the best film I've seen in a long time. The actors are superb, the film is beautiful and haunting, and the ending is very powerful and thought-provoking. If you haven't seen it, do so. It's one of the best films I've seen in a long time.

Saw this film last night. I must say it was a surprisingly good film. The story is quite simple, it's about a young man who falls in love with a young woman, but when she gets ill and dies, he has to leave her. However, he keeps his promise to stay. He goes through all the typical and expected twists and turns of the story. It's quite an exciting film and it's pretty scary at times. The story is quite simple, but the acting was really good. There are a few moments in the film that you can't help but laugh, because it's really funny. I definitely recommend this film.

I loved this movie. I think the reason I like it so much is that I was in the military and I felt connected to this movie because I know how that feels. I am very pleased that I had the opportunity to see it, and I think that people who have not seen it are going to enjoy it as much as I did. I feel that there are a lot of people who would not like this movie because of the gore. However, if you have an open mind, and are able to take it in the right way, you will be very satisfied.

This film is a must see for anyone who has ever had a close friend who has died. I cannot stress enough how tragic this film is, it is heartbreaking and heart breaking. The ending is also very powerful. The film is a mixture of suspense, drama and horror. The acting is superb and it is great to see that many actors who you may not have seen before are also in the film. The film has an excellent mix of genres and it is a shame that it is not more known, I am sure that many people would like to see this film but sadly it is not widely known. If you are a fan of any of the films listed in the film, you should definitely see this film. It is a must see!

This film is not just a movie, it is a good story, and it is a good story told with great cinematography. The characters are very well developed and are quite believable. I thought the acting was excellent. The cinematography was beautiful. The music was great, especially the opening song. I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a good mystery story.

I have seen the film several times and every time I think about it I find it better than the first time. The film is a brilliant piece of art that has its flaws but still manages to entertain and make you feel good. It is a movie that can be enjoyed by the entire family and it is not just for teenagers. The acting is very good and I would highly recommend this film to anyone who likes thrillers and psychological thrillers.

I thought this was an excellent movie. It was extremely suspenseful and scary. The acting was good, the story was good, and the twist at the end was great. I have seen this movie a few times and it never gets old. I think that the story was great and it did have a few things that were not explained in the movie, but that is not the movie's fault. If you want a good movie to watch, I would definitely recommend this movie.

I've been a fan of Scorsese's films since Taxi Driver, but this one is truly a masterpiece. If you are a fan of the New York City area, you will love it. The people in this movie are all real people that are living in the area. You will see the love that these people have for each other, and the struggle they have to keep the peace. I love this movie because it has all the elements that a great movie should have. It has great cinematography, great acting, great acting, and great plot. I have never been so impressed by a movie in my life. This movie is one of the greatest films of all time. If you haven't seen it, go rent it. You won't regret it. It is the best movie I have ever seen. I would give this movie a 10/10.
