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.

7 Nights of Darkness

7 Nights of Darkness

Synopsis: 7 Nights of Darkness

On April 30, 2010, six reality television show contestants spent seven nights in an abandoned and haunted asylum. The show never aired but an editor for the network was able to piece together some footage. The prize for staying all seven nights was a share of one million dollars that was to be split amongst any contestants that didn’t leave. No prize money was ever awarded.

Initial release: November 1, 2011
Director: Allen Kellogg

Review: 7 Nights of Darkness

The actual plot of the movie was pretty good, kind of in the nature of House on Haunted Hill. The acting on the other end? That could have been a little better.

In the beginning of the film I found the character of Lina to be a bit obnoxious when it came to the whole ghost hunting thing and the hopes of seeing a spirit. And on the exact opposite of the wanting to see something the character of Carter I don’t think even wanted to see his own shadow, let alone a spirit.

So if you can get past the first couple of scenes the acting actually seems like it gets a little better.

So the plot behind the movie is that 6 contestants have to spend a week in a Haunted Asylum, and each day they have to open an envelope with the days task. For everyone that decides to leave, their percentage of the million dollar prize gets evenly spread throughout the remaining contestants.

Some of the things that really bothered me regarding this film is the lack of night vision. I mean come on now, the contestants are ghost hunting and they are not provided with decent video cameras equipped with infrared night vision? And also the lack of any good ghost hunting equipment for that fact. Between the six of them, they had three cameras and an EMF meter.

Do all six contestants make it through the week? Do known of them make it? Guess you’ll have to watch, even though I’m pretty sure you can figure out from the get go how many make it.

Rohl Farms Haunting

Rohl Farms Haunting

Synopsis: Rohl Farms Haunting

Two childhood friends, 21 years old, who are trying to create a documentary in Wisconsin, struggle to keep their friendship intact after a string of seemingly paranormal events lead to the staggering conclusion that a group of three strangers are behind the activity. Their quest to discover and convict the culprits via evidence captured on camera becomes the new focus on the documentary, resulting in a cinematic endeavor that could prove to be their last. With real locations, real people, and real relationships, this is the realest found footage film you will ever experience.

Review: Rohl Farms Haunting

This movie was actually not half bad, but there was a lot of things about it that made no sense at all.

First of all two of the characters are supposed to be executive producers on the movie they are making through out the film, but never once are they there to help. And the one character was forced to be there, and he stayed a whole 20 minutes. And also the main characters girlfriend is out of town, but oddly enough she never comes back anytime during the movie.

Secondly the killers of the film, there is no rhyme or reason for them. What is their purpose, where did they come from, why are they after the main characters. They could of explained it a little bit, or gave us sometime of hint. And what was the purpose of everything happening every night at 11:55pm? The filmmakers left a lot on the table. I enjoy a good movie that leaves you thinking after it’s over, but not the things I was left thinking.

Regardless I was entertained, even with the lack of a lot of explanation and a lot of empty plot points.
