    ★★★½

    What a bizarre ride! This one is obligatory presence in all "What the f***"
    movie lists out there.

    I've wanted to see this film for a long time, but the concept of it allways put me away. I finally decided to give it a chance and i'm glad I did.

    Some of the scenes become tedious and never ending (I did not like the canadian detective scenes one bit despite his quirkiness).

    One thing I did not expect was the fact that this movie is more a comedy than a horror one.

    In conclusion, I do recommend this one if you like twisted stuff.

  • Little Evil

    Little Evil

    ★★★½

    Without being hysterical, this is a light-hearted comedy with some funny moments.

    It's a satire about the "child of satan" movies with this creepy kids.

    I liked it, was watchable and had a cool concept.

    Yeh, that's all folks, watch it.

  • Hell House LLC

    Hell House LLC

    ★★★½

    A movie about tragedy that occurred in a Halloween Haunted House, that happens to be in a real haunted hotel.

    This is a mix of interviews and found footage of the crew assembling the haunted house oblivious of the fact that the place is really haunted.

    Endure the slow start because it has really scary moments and full of tension. The plot is not the worse, but it could be explored a bit more, because you just end up with…

  • The Blackwell Ghost

    The Blackwell Ghost

    ★★★½

    Another found footage horror :D
    This one is about a guy and his wife that go into a haunted house to make a documentary that ghosts are (or not) real. It's pretty straight forward.
    It's very paranormal activityesque, but in a good way because it does not exploit too much the scenes around the house where nothing or slightly nothing happens. It creates tension just the right way.
    Watch it if you want to be spooked. I fucking love horror movies.

  • Willow Creek

    Willow Creek

    ★★★½

    I'm a found footage fan. I have been since I've watched Blair Witch Project when I was a kid.

    This film is like the premise of Blair Witch, but insted of a witch, theres Big Foot. There, there's your premise.

    It's simple but effective. It creates tension very well. Some of the plot points are just stupid, but I won't get into detail because of spoilers.

    There is a 18 minute scene I fucking loved, I couldn't take my eyes…

  • Leave No Trace

    Leave No Trace

    ★★★½

    A movie about a father and his daughter that are living in the woods, far from society.

    As the story unfolds, you start to understand why the father choses this life for him, dragging his daughter in the process.

    In fact, this is a drama about PTSD and the devastating effects on human lifes.

    Very well acted by the two leads, this film is way more than it seems at the begining.

  • Totem

    Totem

    ★★★½

    Despite many flaws, I ended up really enjoying this flick.

    It start's with the generic horror tropes (jump scares, loud noises), but slowly develops into something else. Just endure this part for one hell of a ride in the finnal act.

    Midway through the movie I've thought that I already figured out the twist... but man... was I out twisted!

    Some negative aspects are that it looks like a made for TV movie and some of the actors weren't that good (not horrible though).

    Don't expect too much, but there are a lot worse out there, so I do recomend it for it's twist.

  • Sleepy Hollow

    Sleepy Hollow

    ★★★½

    Not a huge fan of Tim Burton but this one was not that bad.

    + Creepy ambience
    + Macabre scenes
    + Pumpkins

    - The plot could be better
    - The ending could be better

    I'll give this one a: watch it on Halloween
