There's some plot about two women and a psychic that goes nowhere then thereâs a love story that has no point and then thereâs some random killings. Eventually the killer (who is never given an identity, purpose or origin) shows up and terrorizes the women that the entire first part of the movie focused on but this happens in the last ten minutes or so. There are a lot of set-ups for things that never happen so when the movie is over you ask "what was the point of..." about a dozen times. One example of this is the killerâs design: he sometimes wears an animal mask and makes growling noises but the mask appears and disappears randomly - why is this? Also he wears gloves with metal claws on the fingers but doesnât use them to kill his victims instead he suffocates them with a plastic bag. If he was supposed to think that he was an animal (which would explain the growling) then why doesnât he kill people like an animal, whatâs with the plastic bag?
From the Hammer Horror archives comes what is, by far, the best Yeti movie ever made. Not only is this a very realistic, thoughtful film, but it actually retains its composure and does not turn into a monster/horror picture. Amazingly there is a message in this movie which is years ahead of its time.
Ten years after the last Ghostface killing spree, Sidney Prescott has become a bestselling author and came to terms with her tragic past. But a return to her hometown triggers a new bloodbath that follows unpredictable, 21st Century horror rules. The last ten years of horror (in America at least) have seen nothing but crappy remakes of classic 70s and 80s or modern Asian horror and Scream 4 cleverly addresses this by having the killer re-make the original killing spree while intensifying the kills, filming them and throwing in new scenes in an attempt to top the original. Despite being a decade detached from the trilogy, this film fits right in with the others because the cinematography, editing, etc. are done in a 90s style ?034; no pointless fast cuts or shaky cam B.S. Once again, like the other entries, you will keep guessing who the killer is right up until the end. The final reveal is so cleverly done that it manages to plausibly explain how a killing spree like this could happen for a fourth time. Usually when horror series get to the 4th movie they just do the same old thing (F13, Halloween, Elm Street) or try something ridiculous and stupid like putting it in space (Leprechaun 4, Critters 4). Scream 4 amazingly breaks free and manages to make the same old thing fresh and original. This may be the best horror series ever in terms of the quality of its sequels and managing to never run out of steam.
Exciting, nail-biting and emotionally moving dramatization of NASAâs finest hour and the most successful failure of all time. The period-recreation and special effects are both stunning, but the viewer will hardly notice them as he is drawn into the story. That is an example of excellent filmmaking where the special effects are necessary, but they donât carry the film. There seems to be devotion from the entire cast and crew of the film to give this story the telling it deserves and their efforts come through with flying colors. Unlike The Right Stuff (which at times seemed detached and unemotional), this true space-drama boils over with a definite passion for the material and the message. A moving, inspirational and spectacularly exciting film â one of the great accomplishments of American cinema.
