    Watched The Echo, another Yam Laranas film. Once again, the movie had a very creepy, dark atmosphere. It was really slow paced but built up to a nice climax at the end. Watchable movie but nowhere near as good as The Road.

Yes, some may call it torture porn and I can imagined being scarred by it if I watched it when I was a child (lol). And admittedly some parts were pretty hard to watch but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Damn you JD, now I'm a horror fanatic because of you lol (I guess adgy deserves a little blame too)
    I dunno. I rewatched this and found I liked it even less the second time. At 80 something minutes it felt long. I don't understand the shoehorned in plot of the daughter of the policeman (or at least the necessity of it other than to pad out the running time). The third act from the point SPOILERS




    'the Prince' dies is boring and drawn out. Oh yeah...and the dog frigging dies. There is nothing new here. Ok, maybe because it's a boy getting punished at the hands of a girl. But I have just seen my fill of 'CRAAAAAAAAAAZY family' horror pics and I could fart out a list of ten that are sooo much better than this. I really thought I had judged this too harshly when I originally watched it, but it turns out I was kind. Wafer thin plot stretched, and I do mean streeeeeeeeeettttttttccccccched to 80 + minutes. And all the horror 101 cliches you can eat. This movie kinda sucks. No Offense Diehard...we can disagree and still be friends.

    SPOILER ALERT


    The point of the policeman's daughter subplot was to show how Lola's actions affected more than just her victims. It's obvious that the daughter is distraught and has a lot of issues as a result of her brother ("the one who got away") disappearing. Also shows how the main character's night should have been - drugs, sex, etc. - but instead his geeky friend experienced that while he got the royal treatment from Lola and her father. Further, the daughter is basically the antithesis of Lola. She wears heavy goth makeup, does drugs, sleeps around, basically appears to be the bad girl. Lola wears no makeup, acts shy, and appears to be the innocent girl. Then we find out that goth girl has this self destructive behavior because of how distraught she is over losing her brother, while Lola is ****ed in the head and hurts others purposefully for the **** of it. So yea, the subplot definitely had more relevance than just screentime filler.

    And I disagree about it being just another crazy family horror flick. I thought the kid who played Lola did a terrific job, and was definitely one of the most twisted psycho bitches of any movie I've seen. I thought the director did a great job of using a played-out storyline and making it into a twisted and adrenaline-pumping ride.

    Anyway, just my opinion.

    Well, now I have. Was entertaining enough. Probably won't watch it again but it was mildly entertaining. Also, Doug Hutchinson does a great job of being a creep, probably because he is one in real life, being in his 50s and marrying a high schooler and all.

    I'm generally not a fan of the mutant monster subgenre but Descent was a really fun movie. Never a dull moment in the film really. I really liked the ending too.

    Watched the sequel not long after, thought it was entertaining as well but not as good. Plus the ending kind of sucked. I still say it's worth a watch if you liked the first one.

    Hell yea it is! I remember seeing it in the theater. Awesome film. Too bad the director followed it up with The Tourist. Had higher expectations for him.

    Well then it was handled poorly because you just described a better movie than the one I have watched twice now. Yeah Lola was good, but really she was just playing the same part all the reality drones play on spackle like My Super Sweet 16th Birthday. I am glad you got more out of it than I did. And your earlier point about torture porn...this really doesn't qualify. TP usually delights in making you watch the act. This movie pulled the camera away during the money shots and used sound to substitute. In my opinion, a bit of a cheat. If you are going to commit to violence then bring it big or go home. Not that I NEED to see flesh rendered, but just saying. It was indicitive of this movies wishy-washiness, in my opinion.

    Burrowers just had a good cast all around. It's nothing earthshattering but a western/indian mysticism/Tremors mash up is worth it just for the attempt.

    I tried watching Dead Birds a while back, got bored and didn't finish it. Decided to watch it all the way through last night. I thought it was alright. Nothing too special, it does have its share of scary moments but nothing spectacular.
