MOVIES WATCHED THIS WEEK
3 From Hell (2019)
“After surviving the events at the end of The Devil’s Rejects, the Firefly Family is on the run again after escaping from prison.”
Read my thoughts here.
“Two groups of people discover evidence that suggests spirits may be trying to invade the human world through the Internet.”
A j-horror film that relies heavily on atmosphere and overall creepiness without using violence or gore. It utilizes the use of the internet as a means for people to feel isolated instead of bringing them together. Loneliness in a world where everyone is at your fingertips is the horror here. (4/5)
The Mist (2007)
“A freak storm unleashes a species of bloodthirsty creatures upon a small town, where a small band of citizens hole up in a supermarket and fight for their lives.”
This is a pretty forgettable film if not for Marcia Gay Harden as the vile Mrs. Carmody and the ending. This felt like a step above a SyFy original with a half a decent cast but laughable CGI monsters. I just couldn’t connect with anything here to where the ending didn’t hit home as well as it should. (2.5/5)
