Movie Review:

This movie had it’s moments, not a lot of them, but a few…

The movie centers around a family of four. A husband and wife and ten year old twins. From what you can gather the family picked up everything a moved to the middle of nowhere from the city. Your somewhat led to believe they moved to the country for their kids. Their two kids Jack & Emily seem to have many problems, from not listening to mutilating small animals, including the family cat.

From the outside they seems to have the perfect marriage and family, but on the inside it’s pure hell. Will David and Clare survive their kids demented behavior.

I’m not really sure if I would suggest this movie or not. There are parts that are somewhat entertaining, but there’s a lot more that isn’t. And there was one to many plot holes that were left wide open. Mainly who is the old man in the closet, and what thumped the camera during Thanksgiving Dinner.

Movie Rating: 2 out of 5

Movie Review:

I saw a handful of reviews before I decided to watch this movie, and I will say the majority of them weren’t that great, but after watching the trailer I wanted to check it out. And I was not disappointed in it.

It’s your typical 20-something year old’s partying somewhere they shouldn’t be and conjuring up some type of ghost or demon. And they begin to die one by one.

The movie starts off with the cops showing up to where the kids were partying. All the find is a trashed hotel and a camcorder. Once the cops hit play on the camcorder we get to see what unfolded throughout the night.

Movie picks up with the 5 characters on there way to an island to spend the weekend at a old hotel that is up for sale. After drinking for hours they decide to play a game. They inadvertently contacted the spirit of a woman that years earlier killed her husband and children. And when they decide they want to end the game they say Good Bye to the spirit and the only response they get is NO, this living the doorway open to the other side.

Everything is fine with the rest of the evening, but when the next day comes, they start disappearing one by one.

This movie is a good watch, so if your looking for something to watch on a Saturday night and you have NetFlix, give it a try… NetFlix Link: https://www.netflix.com/title/80099201

Movie Review:

This movie really didn’t have a lot of scare factor to it, but it was somewhat entertaining.

This movie starts with the main characters Dennis and Lily as they move into a new house so Dennis can live out his final days as he was just diagnosed with a terminal disease.

Dennis sets up cameras throughout his new house to record his final days in hopes of having them edited together to have a documentary of his final days. Everything seemed normal until he starts hearing weird things at night and they catch a shadowy figure on camera in one of the spare rooms. As they try to figure out who the spirit is, things start to get worse and worse for the couple that thing bring Dennis’s brother Frank into the mix.

Will Dennis actually be able to escape the house he planned on dying in? or will his plan actually still happen, just not the way he planned on it.

Movie Rating: 4 out of 5
