Hush Synopsis

In this heart-pounding thriller from acclaimed writer and director Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Before I Wake), silence takes on a terrifying new dimension for a young woman living along in the woods. Author Maddie Young (Kate Siegel) lives a life of utter isolation after losing her hearing as a teenager. She’s retreated form society, living in seclusion and existing in a completely silent world. But one night, the fragile world is shattered when the masked face of a psychotic killer appears in her window. Without another living soul for miles, and with no way to call for help, it appears that Maddie is at the killer’s mercy… but he may have underestimated his prey. As this horrifying game of cat and mouse escalates to a breathless fever-pitch, Maddie must push herself beyond her mental and physical limits in order to survive the night.

Hush Movie Review

Now a days it’s so hard to watch a horror movie without it feeling like something you’ve watched a thousand times, with Hush I must say it felt original.

Couldn’t imagine how scary it must be to face the world day in and day out without ever hearing a single sound, not knowing if something or someone is walking up behind you, or breathing over your shoulder. But the main character of this film Maddie was pretty fearless in the face of a killer.

The only thing I wish they explained in this movie, was what is the killers motive. You are given no reason throughout the entire movie of why this man killed the people he did and why he is after Maddie. I mean you get the gist of why he is after her, it’s because of the neighbor Sarah running to Maddie for help when she is being attacked, but why was he hunting Sarah?

Rating: Hush 4 out of 5

Review: Hooked Up

READING THIS REVIEW MAY SPOIL THE MOVIE FOR YOU – YOU’VE BEEN WARNED

Hooked Up was actually entertaining, but at the same time it was also slightly confusing. I will say though the main character Peter was kind of on the annoying side plus a little unstable. Diffently not someone you would want to ever bring on vacation with you.

After watching this and also the Hostel movies, makes me never want to go over seas on vacation I can tell you that. Think I will stick with locations stateside.

I do believe this was also one of the first horror movies, or movies filmed entirely with an iPhone. Phone worked pretty well I must say.

Back on point though, the movie started off kind of seeming just like another movie about college age guys going across seas to get hammered. Movie really didn’t start getting good until Peter met Katia and the decided to go back to Katia deceased grandparents house. At the point in the film it finally seemed to get interesting. After Peter disappeared into a back bedroom with Katia and she decided to get a little overly aggressive that’s when we realize she may not just be another drunken club chick after all.

Katia is more into getting revenge then sex, will Peter, Tonio and his date for the night make it out of the grandparents house? You’ll have to watch to find out.

Review: The Break-In

This review may contain spoilers, so if you are actually planning on watching this movie, stop reading now.

I’m not really even sure to start with this film, I guess the best thing about this movie is the fact I watched it on Amazon Prime so it didn’t cost me anything.

My biggest issue with this movie, is the man and his cellphone. I mean really? Who films on their phone every waking hour? For one I don’t think the storage space would last and I know the battery wouldn’t. I understand the man just got a new phone and he is testing it out, but really? Who in their right mind is going to visit for dinner and be filmed the entire time they eat, and visit for drinks and it’s more the same. I just really don’t have anything to say good about this film.

One more thing, if this is a found footage, how did we see the mans dream? When he was dreaming of killing the home intruder, but actually killing his girlfriend. How did we see his dream? Don’t think they thought that one out very well. I mean it’s still a better film then I could ever make, but as far as B-Rated horror films on Amazon, don’t waste your time.
