Legend of the Bog (2009)
Director: Brendan Foley
Main Stars: Vinnie Jones, Jason Barry, Nora-Jane Noone, Amy Huberman, Olga Wehrly, Adam Fogerty
Storyline: An old body gets disturbed from the swamp when a new development is being built and the killings beginning.
Review (Spoils): An ancient warrior gets washed up (in perfect shape by the way) and the greedy asshole real estate woman asks for the body to be disposed of so that she can continue her project over the bog. So guess what happens next? Well he comes back for revenge and in this mess we have a bunch of other people involved when he comes back. We learn that some of the cardboard characters actual have back stories but it does not matter because the bogmen are going to get them.
The acting in this film is just terrible, the plot is crap, the bog man is not scary, there is not right or reason on how the bog really preserves the body and all the kills are off screen pretty much. I’m not even sure if this was a horror film now!
Rating: This movie just sucked no better way to say it. We have the cute Nora-Jane Noone so that gets a pint.

The Descent (2005)
Director: Neil Marshall
Main Stars: Shauna Macdonald, Natalie Mendoza, Alex Reid, Saskia Mulder, MyAnna Buring, Nora-Jane Noone
Storyline: Six women going on a caving expedition to bond and they become trapped with a strange breed of man eating predators.
Review (Spoils): Sarah (Shauna Macdonald) comes home from white water rafting with her family and they all die in the accident but her. A year later she tries to regroup her life with her female friends and they go caving. Six young beautiful women go into the booze to drink and enjoy nature. Their main guide Juno (Natalie Mendoza) does not bring the map and leads them all into a death trap by accident (by the way she was screwing with Sarah’s husband). The ladies become trapped in the caves and to top it off they are slowly being hunted one by one by a group of pale vampire man beasts that live in the caves.
We got blood in this one, nasty bites, a really brutal broken leg, a climbing hook through the head, some ripping and eating of innards. The film has some beautiful scenery (the ladies and the nature); the bonding is well done between the ladies and the movie does build well on suspense.
Rating: I really enjoyed this film; this is what horror movies are to be about. Not teenage crap over and over again. This was fresh and different and it did not need the nudity for it to work. Bring out the blood and the babes for this one!
