Let me start out by saying that if you like horror movies and you have not seen this film yet, than do so, now. Drag Me To Hell is the best horror movie I have seen in a long time. Believe me this film is worth it. The genius of Sam Raimi is the fact that his horror movies are funny as well as scary. A lot of the times he uses jump scares instead of suspense, and and you start off screaming and end up laughing. The kind of BOO! scares of old horror movies instead of all the psychological nonsense. Also the film is really gory, and not in the sense of “Ah, disgusting”, more like, “Haha, dear God there’s so much blood!”. These are the sort of films we need to hark-in back to. And again, go and buy this movie if you don’t already have it, and hell even if you do have it, give the companies more money!

So last night I watched this film on TV, and I figured it being a horror movie made in the last ten years that it would fail epically and be filled with pointless jump scares. This being said I was pleasantly surprised by the fact the film was okay. . . that’s really all that can be said.

First off, this is not a pointless slasher flick full of sex and blood. But something that sort of leads you to believe that it’s like The Orphan but instead of a crazy adopted sister there is an evil step mother, but there is a twist at the end that blows that whole thought out of the frozen lake. So sort of like The Stepfather but with a stepmother.

The effects are pretty good, there isn’t really much gore, and it that note it is like The Orphan where it is building up that she’s crazy and out to kill your family and have sex with your husband, but of course no one believes you if you say stepmom/the orphan sister’s gonna kill our asses and rape/marry you.

So now is where I’ll talk about the best thing in the movie, the ending. The director pulls an M. Night Shamalan and throws a huge twist in at the end to rape any thoughts you had previously. So Anna the main character she gets released from the insane asylum (and she’s like sixteen, wtf?) after her mother’s death in a tragic fire and she goes ape shit crazy and slits her wrists. Ya, rly. And through the movie she sort of has these premonitions of people close to her being murdered, and she thinks it’s her stepmother. So her and her sister think that she is really an evil nanny that killed some kids and married the father, so they try and stop her. They both are drugged and when Anna wakes up her stepmother strips her. Ya, rly. And Anna’s “sister” kills her stepmother. After Anna finds her stepmother in the garbage her father comes home, and she says that Alex had to kill her because she was gonna kill their asses. And he says her sister died in the tragic fire. ZOMG! So it turns out she killed her stepmother AND she wasn’t an evil nanny at all. So she gets sent back to the loony bin and in the final scene the chick across the hall closes her door and the name says Mildred Kemp, the evil nanny.

So, this film was not that bad considering it’s a modern horror movie. Go watch it.

Watchmen was released on March 3, 2009 in theaters and is based on the 1986, 1987 miniseries written by Alan Moore and drawn by Dave Gibbons. Starring Patrick Wilson and Jackie Earl Haley. Watchmen is set in an alternate history in which superheroes are real and don’t exactly act as if they would in your average Marvel comic book, they are real people with real problems and they generally kill criminals, some have even been in wars. In 1977 the Keene act is passed and vigilantism is outlawed once again, and three of the heroes retire (Nite Owl II; Ozymandias; Silk Specter II); two are working with the government (Dr. Manhattan; The Comedian); and one does not retire of his own choice (Rorschach). The acting was very good on all of the members of the cast’s part, it felt like they all really cared and weren’t acting, it was like they really were their character, except for the actress who plays Silk Specter II. The effects are all really good and are believable, and the art in and of itself is amazing and some of the individual images are very close to those of the comic. This one is a must buy, at the least a rental.

First, whatever speculations you had against this film, forget them. Just forget them, and go see it. I had little hope for this film when I saw the trailers, but it did interest me. And I just saw it a few hours ago, and it was a very good film. One of the best in the last few years.

The suspense is great, and every time Esther (the “Orphan”) is going to try and kill someone, you know how she’ll do it, but you’re waiting and wondering if the heroine will see/stop her. And Esther does some weird shit to make the heroine seem like the bad guy. Like she puts her arm in a vice (after the heroine gets pissed at Esther, and grabs her arm) and breaks it, and shows it to our heroine’s husband and makes him think that she broke her arm. And a girl teases Esther at school then she pushes the girl off of a slide and breaks the girl’s leg. And when Maxine (the heroine’s daughter) is in the car Esther turns off the parking brake and makes the car crash into a pile of snow. And the heroine is blamed because she was a drinker and they found a bottle of wine and thought she left the parking break off because she was drunk.

The acting is actually pretty good, especially from the child actors who do an exceptionally good job for 9 year olds in a horror movie. Like I said in the beginning¬† don’t judge the film, please go give the film a chance, it should be out on DVD.
