To be 100% honest with you, this movie isn’t even really worth a review. It is one of the worst horror films I have seen in a long time. And I actually thought I was getting ready to watch All Hallows’ Eve, not All Hallows Eve. What a difference an apostrophe can make. We always youtube every movie before we watch it so we can watch the trailer. Well, we watched the trailer for All Hallows’ Eve and thought that was what we were watching. So wrong we were…
This movie was all over the place, characters didn’t make sense, things they said didn’t make sense, this movie just didn’t make any sense. I know my reviews aren’t that great to begin with, but this one I am not even going to try….
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?
Looking for a good time, two friends on a trip to Barcelona befriend a couple of girls but it’s not fun they find, instead they get trapped in a house haunted by a devilish ghost bent on tearing apart anyone that enters her dwelling.

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.
