MV5BOTU4MDE4MDE2OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDQ0Njg4Mw@@__V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_Review (Spoils): Okay so it took till 2009 for Hollywood to do a movie on an email chain letter leading to death.  This is a typical teenage horror film where people are young, horny and addicted to their flip phones (yes flip phones…!). Someone receives a chain letter email and forwards it off to four people and if someone decides to delete it a big man comes with chains to kill you.

We have young teenagers that don’t give really a rats ass about each other (you will notice this once they start to drop off the face of the Earth), we have chains, we have lots of blood and gore, flip phones, some breasts, a crazed storyline that somehow involves a cult and Betsy Russell playing a horrible cop.

The acting from the young people was not bad and the gore and blood was actually not bad in this film. I really did enjoy the character Cody Kasch played. The main actress Nikki Reed was good looking and she were not bad but some of the storyline/writing kind of made it unreal.

Rating: This film was actually better than I thought it would be but at the same time it was not great. Typical teenage film with teenage topics and it tries to nail technology as evil and root of all evil along with an unexplained burnt face madman (Michael Bailey Smith) with chains.

But the gore was good!

The Thing (1982)

The Thing (1982)

Country:  USA

Director:  John Carpenter

Main StarsKurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, Keith David, T.K Carter, Keith David

Storyline:  Scientists are in the Antarctic doing tests and studies when they are interrupted by a mad Norwegian and stumble upon a frozen spacecraft.  What they did not know is the alien creature still lives inside the ship in a frozen state.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Review (Spoils): First off this is a remake of The Thing from Another World and it is way better. John Carpenter over did himself with over the top special effects and the storyline flows great together where the gaps were missing in the original. We have prime acting from Kurt Russell and the rest of the cast as they battle a space changing beast which brings physical and emotional conflict within the group of scientists.The film has you guessing through it who is the effected by the alien or who is the human. Between madness it is hard to tell between the two.

The movie has over the top gore; we have malformed dogs, strange blobs, gooey creatures and bodies that change to the reaction of the creature itself. This is not a date movie but it is one of the best horror films out there for special effects.

Rating: I might get nailed to the horror cross for saying this but this is John Carpenter’s best, sorry Michael Myers but this one has you beat. But I still love you!
