Movie Review:

Anyone who reads my reviews, not i’m not the best writer or the fact I don’t add many details and everything is quick and to the point. With this movie I can’t even really give a quick review. This movie actually put me to sleep. I made it through about the first 15 minutes, and then slept for the rest of the movie besides about the last time minutes.

But from what I saw, it’s your typical haunted ghost movie. A bunch of teens, one of them gets possessed etc etc. So, unless you have nothing else better to do, I wouldn’t waste my time with this movie.

Movie Rating: 1 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.

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.
