Here comes my mini review, much easier doing these. The Guest is currently out on VOD, it’s a really good 80’s thriller film but was made this year, and I love it. Adam Wingard the director of this film is definitely on a roll. I am two for two on his films. You’re Next and now this little gem. I will be looking out for your future films.
I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.
You’re Next proves that starting strong means nothing, it’s entirely how you end and boy does this end strong. This film is probably my favourite horror film of 2013 and I only saw it right near the end which sad but really fun. The film has a lot of energy and when it gets going it doesn’t stop until the end, lots of interesting kills, good thrilling music and the camera work did manage to get at time with a jump here and there. Also if you are a fan of strong female leads then you will love this film because Erin played by Shami Vinson kicks all kind of ass. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.
“I stuck a blender in his head and killed him.” Freakin love that line.
I was going to just review the green band trailer but that’s not how things happen around here, so for those of you with a weaker stomach here is the Green Band Trailer which is pretty similar. I enjoyed the first film but felt like with most anthology horror films some of the segments where stronger than others, not big problem but certainly room for improvement and what I have heard recently sounds like this film is strides better than the first. The sequel has some interesting segments and with impressive directors behind them this should be interesting to see. From the directors of The Raid, Your Next, Hobo with a Shotgun, The Blair Witch Project which are all pretty good films and some are just excellent, can’t wait for The Raids directed segment. I do love how difficult this trailer was to take screenshots of, a horrible combination of both handheld and horror just to make life difficult. Enjoy the blood soaked review and by that I mean I got a particularly bad paper cut whilst writing this.
V/H/S is an interesting idea for a film, as an anthology it is one of those films I have wanted for a while as I loved Twilight Zone and Creep Show but it failed in a few places which annoyed me to no end. Out of the six horror stories told in this found footage film; I liked three of them but the others where slow and failed to impress me. It’s not something I think needs to be in the found footage genre as for the most part it just annoyed me, maybe having one the story with shaky camera would work but I guess the film title wouldn’t make sense if they weren’t found footage. I can still dream of a modern horror anthology.
