I love all the ritual stuff. It lends a very spooky atmosphere, not to mention the house, to the story. Watching the female character struggle to get to her final request can be difficult if only because action people probably want big stuff to happen throughout. But I found it worth the repetition because the rituals themselves were cool and the tiny hints of breaking through made me want to keep watching. The final scene is incredible.
I won't see it based on the fact that they are giving the horrible book, 50 Shades of Grey, more publicity. I mean, I'd like to think older women are smarter than this but apparently some of my favorite actresses have agreed to come together and encourage this kind of crap.
Lasseter's Bones. This is a fascinating doc. mystery that took place in Australia in the 1930's. The documentarian does an exhaustive search to find out the truth about a seven mile reef of gold located somewhere in the unforgiving Australian desert. The reef took the lives of any white men who found it. The only people that know the secret of it's location are the Aborigine but no one can find it or will ever find. Why? The native people know the real reason. If you like historic mysteries this is a good one.
Well done and certainly startling in parts. The story is not a new one, check out Fallen and The Ring. But, it's a new twist on the theme of evil being transferred from one person to another. The main actress does a very good job. She is not the typical screaming mimi brainless babe but a girl who seems at first confused and finally terrified that something is after her. The rest of the cast is also very good. They are young adults in a horror flick that anyone will identify with and root for. Not a snappy/happy ending. That's good too. Is it worth 95%. Me thinks, since I'm a vintage horror movie fan, that it's more along the line of 80%. It did not scare me so much as keep me interested to see what might happen next.
The audience is WRONG on this one. I saw this film and thought it was so much fun to watch. No new territory, but it was done very well. Mostly the scares are left to the imagination of the audience. Perhaps that's what irked some people. "WHAT, no gore or super duper special effects?" It is a little like the Blair Witch, but I think there are scenes that seem to stand just fine all on there own. I don't add horror films to my collection unless I think they are worth the money. This one is going in. 93% is no slouch in the ratings, people. Watch Willow Creek and tell me it doesn't keep you hopping off your seat.
