AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING – Review

There have been plenty of Amityville horror movies since the 70’s and here is yet another reboot of the franchise, is it any good? Read on to find out.

 

Amityville: The Awakening has been in development hell for a long time (pun intended). It was suppose to be released in 2015 and after was pushed back 5 times and after some re-shoot its finally here but its not like everyone was eagerly awaiting it in the first place.

This movie is about the story of the mother, Joan and her 3 children, Belle (Bella Thorne), Juliet and their comatose brother, James (Cameron Monaghan) who move into this old house. Right after moving in, Belle starts to realise there is something creepy about the house and her brother is slowly recovering from his coma state. As with every horror movies, unusual things start to happen at night especially at 3.15am as that’s the time the previous owner of the house killed his entire family 40 years ago. There is no real ghost or demon in the film but just jump scares to keep the audience at the edge of their seats. The brother, played by Cameron Monaghan does a great job towards the end once he is awakened from his state. If you have seen him in Gotham as the Joker, you will know he has the face and eeriness aura around him when he acts. As for the main actress, Bella Thorne is pleasing to the eye and does the usual emo teen with the goth makeup bringing out her real life bad-girl image.

 

Horror movies have changed tremendously over the past few years especially with the work of James Wan setting the bar for all future horror flicks, so if you were to compare, director Frank Khalfoun (P2, Wrong Turn, Maniac) has a bit of catching up to do if he wants this movie to be memorable. It has plenty of jump scares and would satisfy audiences looking for some thrill to get their heart racing. So, guys do bring your girlfriend

Annabelle: Creation – Review

In 2014 we’ve been a slammed down by the Annabelle movie, with meaningless jumpscare zero suspense, zero tension and everything relaying on the ‘ Creepiness’ of the Annabelle doll. Of course let’s not dwell on the past. David F. Sandberg gives us another thrilled ride, but this time with high level of intensity.

The atmosphere it created left me on the edge of the seat the whole movie. Which to me is far better than jump scares! The movie also had very few slow/boring parts if any. Some characters do make stupid decisions which can be frustrating, but same goes for all movies. All the actors in the film were really good, which surprised me since most are so young. They’re are a few hidden Easter eggs throughout the film that fans of Annabelle and the Conjuring series will probably notice, which was really neat/surprising to see! This movie also ties in perfectly the the first film in a very surprising way that made the crowd of the theater actually gasp in shock.

Overall: There are no standout scenes that will make you not want to go to bed, but it serves its purpose as a horror movie and is entertaining enough in its last part to please an audience.

Osiris Child – Review

Despite blurry shot and, different angle cam Osiris Child got it owns charm in order to keeps me awake. From the guy who brought you Infini, here’s come Science Fiction Volume One : The Osiris Child Shane Abbess latest installment it’s the story where humans have started to colonise the universe and out on the fringe there is a planet with a new colony, a flotilla floating above and a prison below with a deep secret ready to bust loose.

In here we meet Lt. Kane Sommerville (Daniel MacPherson) an officer for Exor the military contractor who is in charge of supporting new settlements. Sommerville has a conflicted past that drives him to be as far away from Earth as he can get, which is complicated because he has a daughter Indi (Teagan Croft) who has travelled across the Galaxy to see him.

Although this an indie sci-fi installment what I really adore with this movie is how Shane manage to pull off a high level production that you don’t really see in such budget film , the set feels authentic the details are surreal The action is real, from the punch you can almost feel that the weight, the swing and the brawl between character, Shane also manage to make aerial combat between Kane and the Dogfighter looks intensed. In the end, it’s clear from the movie, I mean look at the title, that this is meant to be the first of a series of films and given this first outing I’m really interested to see where they go next with this, I just hope people give it a chance.
