It was sort of decent but let's be real here, Stewart has no emotion in any role and is quite possibly a cyborg. Scared, angry, sad, happy, all the same face! I have the same bitch face affliction but I know I can't be in movies lol. anyways, it gets a littke jumpy and then a bit weird and then it's done.
actually quite enjoyable..went in with low expectations but was surprised. there are somw low points (the role of the mother is acted poorly, the cliche of the parents not believing the kid) but the cinematography and some decent thrills make up for it. if you want a good time go for it, if you want a deep film this isn't for you
Dumb and stupid and dumb. My quality of life is poorer for having watched it. No that's probably not entirely fair. It's far from the worst movie I've ever seen. But it truly was a disappointment, and I'd advise against watching it.
The Messengers is a horror movie from producer Sam Raimi (Evil Dead Trilogy, Drag Me To Hell). Why did he produce this movie? It is a boring, badly-acted, un-scary movie which ticked off every horror cliche on the list. It was a very disappointing movie, also considering the directors' previous work (The Eye). The characters are very dumb, and the family problems were just tiresome and uninteresting. Overall, a very tasteless and sloppy excuse for a horror movie.
I saw this film before and I forgot I saw it. Guess I forgot to review it. The Messengers is about the girl form Twilight getting haunted by ghosts of what appears to be previous inhabitants of the house. After further research, we learn that the ghosts were the most recent residents. Apparently, they are quoted as being Messengers but they end up scaring the shit out of the daughter and not helping the son because unmute, he apparently wasn't born mute. Anyway, interesting plot and huge plot twist. Pretty good film.
The Messengers has the beginnings of a frightening, beautifully crafted haunted house horror delight, but the script is unfortunately too familiar to distinguish itself from other similarly themed pictures and the execution is too milquetoast in the long run to approximate to a truly satisfying horror film.
I liked the scares and atmosphere but the characters relationships were confusing and made little sense. It was hard to feel like these people even knew each other, much less were actually family. The best actor here was the little boy Ben.
The story seemed rushed and silly but like I said, it was a decent movie for the scare aspect, if that's all u wanted.
