Conclusion Overall, this movie Cat O’ Nine Tails was not a very entertaining movie. The story was an interesting one to follow but the props and directing were subpar. The acting, however, was excellent and was the saving grace of this movie. I would not recommend this movie to anyone who is a regular moviegoer or who is a fan of Dario Argento because his directing is so bad. As a horror fan, this movie was an OK one.
Although the overall plot was similar, the directorial style was quite obviously different. Both movies had a blurred line between good and evil, which needed to be crossed in order to stop the villain. Also the both protagonists are just regular, ordinary guys. However, the differences between the two movies far out-weigh the similarities. In the end of Arlington Road, the villain gets his way and moral order is never reinstated which is unlike Rear Window.
Despite the fact that there was such a huge amount of material that was sadly left ... ... middle of paper ... ... difficult to avoid. At any rate, the whole movie has already begun to wind down at this point, and a death for the monster at the hands of the angry mob is invented for the film at the expense of the story. It is tragic that the amazing ending of Shelley's novel was left entirely out of the film, but it is also easy to understand because of budget and production limitations. This is an ironic and unfortunate example of a film that would have really been considered a lot better than it is if it were not for the book upon which it is based. It is clear that the film is strong and that it is well made, but when compared to Shelley's novel, it's really a pretty sad mess.
But the Sixth Sense is a psychological thriller that talks to you on such an emotional, psychological way that some big poignant dramas can only imagine! The director, M. Night Shyamalan takes advantage of the horror genre to subvert our expectations, we anticipate to be scared, and whilst screaming we are also touched by the truly sad events that happens to the main characters. It is incredibly rare to watch a thriller that makes you think and feel. The film is intelligent, well-acted, well-written and well-directed with a genuinely unexpected surprise twist that gives it the 4-star rating it definitely deserves. The premise is that Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis) is a psychologist in Philadelphia and opens up with him receiving an award for outstanding work in the field of child psychology.
The videos themselves added a lot to the plot in The Ring, and really weakened the plot in Ringu. First, in the ring we see all the images come to life during the movie, as the actor experiences th... ... middle of paper ... ...I thought it worked perfectly as a horror movie, and had some great scary attributes. Ringu however, really seemed out of place to me. So many things brought the movie down.
The horror is a paradox because it presents a vision of terror to the audience but the audience try to fight everything the director is trying to achieve by telling themselves that, 'it is just a movie, its not real, you can't scare me.' The Shining was based on Stephen King's third published novel, which became a best seller upon its release in 1977. What also makes The Shining such an exceptional horror movie is the way Stanley Kubrick keeps the horror hidden from the audience and like most good horror films, there is always a sense of the supernatural, good vs. evil and a sense of isolation. Personally I feel that the Shining is a typical horror film because it's a situation where the victims are isolated from the outside world and there is a mad man or something out of the ordinary killing them, which is true of most horror films like Nightmare on Elm Street, The Ring, Signs, Jeepers Creeper's 1 and 2 and Dracu... ... middle of paper ... ...symbolic value. This movie is perhaps Stanley Kubrick's greatest work.
There’s always those movies you see the trailer of and instantly know it’s gonna be bad. However, there are also those movies that seem like they could qualify for movie of the year, based off the trailer alone. But, in reality, they’re just as bad, if not worse than the ones that looked bad from the start. Below is a list of five prominent ways to tell if a movie will be bad before it comes out. The Movie is a Sequel If the movie is a sequel to a classic, or based off a movie already renowned for its greatness, you might immediately be weary from the start.
The movie Haunted Forest by Ian Lorenos may be a good film for wimps but for those who has a lot of experiences in horror and gore movies, this might make you yawn a little bit due to the repetition of flow. The matching of the teen-main cast were off, the personalities of the created love teams (Jane-Jameson; Maris-Jon) did not match due to the absence of chemistry. Lastly, the loudness and the chosen score is not effective. The film has a lot of failures but the story, the cinematography and the individuality of the artists help to cope the lacking though the redundancy of the style and the predictable flow is still obvious. Haunted Forest is the only horror entry in the 43Rd Metro Manila Film Festival (starring Jane Oineza, Maris Racal, Jameson Blake, Jon Lucas, Raymart Santiago, and Joey Marquez) but it offers no advantages.
His opening statement really caught my attention. “I think that we are all mentally ill.” (King 405) Did he really say we are all crazy? As I read through this controversial article I slowly begin to realize that Stephen King knows not everyone craves horror movies and he respects that. That is why the article is written with three perspectives in mind. If you read carefully he lays the basic foundations for the people who like it, then he goes into detail for the people who crave it, and he also acknowledges the people who don’t like it.
Also I don't recommend this movie to anyone frankly it just has too many flaws.The MPAA rating for Inception is PG-13 which is probably the only thing i like about this, since it is a more mature movie less kids will waste their time watching it. Now if you haven't understood through the tone of the review I think this movie was bad, but how
