Mini Review:

*** SPOILERS BELOW ***

This isn’t usually the type of movie I watch, watching the trailer I thought it leaned more towards horror than a psychological thriller but I was wrong. This was one of those movies that keep you guessing throughout the whole movie and when you think you know what’s going on you don’t.

I would have rated it 5 out of 5 if I didn’t figure out what was going on at the beginning of the movie. The movie is about a mind the is a mind detective, as in he enters peoples minds to bring out memories. There is a 16-year-old girl Anna that decides to go on a hunger strike so her wealthy parents call in the mind detective to help her end her strike. Which to me really didn’t make sense, why have a mind detective for that? Anyway, as he is going through her memories he uncovers a lot more disturbing things, or so you think. Is Anna really letting her see her memories or is she creating fake memories for him?

A couple of things that bothered me was inconsistencies in some of the details. When the detective went to talk to one of Anna’s classmates she said there was no Mousey at their school. But when the detective looked in the yearbook there was a Mousey, it just wasn’t who Anna said it was. Just little details like that, that drives me nuts. Even with that though it’s a really good movie and worth the watch.

Movie Rating: 4 out of 5

Mini Movie Review:

Another Saturday night, another movie to be picked. This weekend the winner was Bedeviled on Netflix.

This movie honestly reminded me of a retelling of Stephen King’s IT. Mr. Bedeviled reminded me a lot of Pennywise, even at one point in the movie they had the famous red balloon from IT. This isn’t me saying the movie wasn’t entertaining or anything just seemed really familiar.

The movie is about five friends that get a mobile app installed on their phones after one of their friends end up dead. The app is similar to Siri or whatever other apps out there are like that. The app seems harmless at first until it starts doing things that aren’t so nice. The app knows your fears and feeds off of them (hence reminding me of Pennywise).

Will the 5 friends be able to uninstall the app before it’s too late? If you want to check out this movie it can be found on Netflix. Bedeviled on Netflix

Movie Rating: 4 out of 5

Mini Movie Review:

I previously saw this movie years ago but earlier today SyFy channel aired it again so I figured I would watch it. I will say for a cheesy b-rated movie it is rather entertaining. To sum the movie up it’s about a sorority house that is run by an evil spirit and it’s the night of a big Halloween party. The house mother wants to add a few more permanent residents to the house. Will anyone survive the party?

Movie Rating: 3 out of 5
