Review:

This is by far the hardest film I’ve ever had to review. Honestly, I don’t even want to say anything about the opening scene of the film. This is one of those movies that is much better the less you know about it. I left important actors off of the cast list on my review because I feel it will spoil the film in some way. I don’t want to say anything about the film except for the fact that I had a total blast with it from beginning to end. Sure, there are a few bits I have a problem with, but that is for another conversation. If you have seen the film and would like to talk about it, feel free to send me an email.

Sure, you think you have seen the film before, but trust me you have never seen it like this. Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon have created the orgasm of horror films and certainly raise the bar for horror altogether. This is a film for film lovers, especially for fans of the horror genre. Do yourself a favor and go see this film. Don’t watch the trailers, don’t read about it online…just buy your tickets.

Rating: R for strong bloody horror violence and gore, language, drug use and some sexuality/nudity

Runtime: 95 minutes

Review:  A-
