The film called The Quiet Ones is being released in theatres on April 25th. Cineplex’s synopsis reads: A university student (Sam Claflin of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and some classmates are recruited to carry out a private experiment — to create a poltergeist. Their subject: an alluring, but dangerously disturbed young woman (Olivia Cooke of Bates Motel). Their quest: to explore the dark energy that her damaged psyche might manifest. As the experiment unravels along with their sanity, the rogue PHD students are soon confronted with a terrifying reality: they have triggered an unspeakable force with a power beyond all explanation. Inspired by true events.

It could be interesting, but the fact that it says it’s “Inspired by true events” is usually a load of crap. While there are horror films that are loosely based on serial killers and murders, such as movies based on the murderer Ed Gein, few aspects of these films are actually based off actual events. While some of these true events/ true story films are very good, many are essentially the same, so I’m not sure whether The Quiet Ones will be any different. I am not sure if I am going to see it. Does anyone want to see this film? Or have you not made up your mind yet?

Here’s a trailer to watch in case you haven’t heard of The Quiet Ones: http://videos.cineplex.com/All-Videos/3298044006001/The-Quiet-Ones-Trailer-1/Video/

I went to go see the film Oculus last weekend, which was released on April 11th. It looked very interesting and is about a brother and sister who work together to see if a mirror their father had bought when they were children was responsible for their mother’s death. It stars some lesser known actors, but I recognized James Lafferty (from One Tree Hill) and Katee Sackhoff (who many people know from Battlestar Galactica but I remember from Halloween Resurrection).

The film starts off well, with the brother being released from a mental hospital after suffering for the past 11 years since he was forced to kill his father, who supposedly killed his mother. His sister goes to meet him after finding the mirror their father bought before their mother was killed. Her plan is to bring the mirror into their childhood home and prove that the mirror actually had something to do with their mother’s death. While the first 30 or 40 minutes are interesting, it begins to go downhill from there. There are many flashbacks to when they are kids and their parents were alive, and while this helps us to understand the past, they eventually start flipping between the past and present in basically every other scene. It makes the film very confusing and difficult to follow along. It continues to become more and more confusing right up to the very bad ending. Your questions are not answered, you are still confused and have no idea how the ending could have happened. Needless to say, this film is no good, so don’t waste your money on it. It is too confusing and feels as though it is super long because you become very bored and lost. I don’t know what I would rate Oculus, honestly. If they had taken some of the flashbacks out and explained what was happening, as well as making a better ending, the film would have been better.

Oculus looks interesting, but it’s not. It’s just plain confusing. I would not recommend watching it.

Afflicted

I saw this movie called Afflicted on Tuesday, it’s only been released in certain theatres and I had never heard of it before. It is about these two friends who decide to take a trip around the world together and document the trip and post it online for family and friends to see. Shortly after they begin their trip, one of the guys hooks up with a girl and his friends find him beat up in his hotel room. After he gets cleaned up, he slowly begins to change… into something else. The movie is very interesting, has a very old school monster feel and is filled with lots of suspense and overall creepiness. While it is one of those films which shaky filming which I do not like, it wasn’t too bad. Unfortunately they use this very bright camera light for many of the dark scenes, which left me with a headache, but that was my only major concern. Otherwise, the film was pretty good, but it is one of those movies you need to sit with for a while and think about after watching it. Overall, I would give Afflicted a 7 out of 10.
