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.

The film Chernobyl Diaries was released in 2012. It is about six tourists who hire an “extreme tourism” guide to take them to the abandoned city Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor. During their exploring of the city, they soon discover that the van they arrived in is not working. When they decide what to do next, they fear they are not alone in the city. I recognized two people in the film: Jesse McCartney, a singer, and Jonathan Sadowski who was in the newest Friday the 13th. The film is 86 minutes long and is directed by Brad Parker, who did some visual effects work on Fight Club and Lake Placid.

I had originally wanted to see the film when it was released in theatres, but never ended up seeing it. A few weeks ago I was at hmv and found the movie on sale for $9 and decided to buy it. While the film does not have any big actors in it, or any big names production wise, it’s a good film. There are quite a few scenes that will probably make you jump, lots of suspense, and an overall eerie feel to the city of Pripyat. The film is like most horror films in the way that the actors make stupid decisions, which leads to them or someone else being killed. I did not enjoy the shakiness of the camera work, but I must admit that it was not as bad as it is in many other films. Overall, I enjoyed it, and think it was worth buying. You may have to watch the film a second time to pick up on everything that happened, even though it’s not a psychological thriller. There is just a lot happening, especially in the second half of the film. I was surprised by the ending, and would imagine many other people would be surprised as well, but I won’t ruin it for you. :)

Chernobyl Diaries is by no means the most excellent film, nor is it the worst. I would rate the film a 7.5 out of 10. I did enjoy it, and I would recommend watching it at least once to see what you think of it. It’s not a high profile film, but is definitely interesting.

Season-4-Promo-Poster-the-walking-dead-35070776-960-712

I watched the season 4 finale of The Walking Dead with lots of excitement, as I watch with every week, and I enjoyed it.  *SPOILERS* I was a little disappointed that we did not see the entire group during the episode, but I was very happy to see most of them (especially Rick, who I’d been missing!) I loved the fight scene with Daryl’s new group. I was freaking out (screaming at the tv) when Rick had a gun to his head, but in yet ANOTHER example of when Rick saves the day, he was able to swing out of the way of the gun and ended up biting the guy’s ear off (Take that Shane!). Yes I know, it was dramatic, but I just loved that Rick showed that he will do absolutely anything to save his group and his family. As a fan of gore, that scene did not disappoint. I also really enjoyed the nice moment afterwards between Rick and Daryl, with Rick calling Daryl his brother, which was very touching. And I knew there was something wrong with Terminus! It’s like Woodbury all over again but possibly even worse, seeing as the group is now trapped. I was very happy to see that they had not eaten Glenn and Maggie, because I kept hearing rumours that Terminus is filled with cannibals, which it still could very well be. Overall I really enjoyed the episode, and while some called Rick’s last line corny, I LIKED IT! (If you couldn’t tell, I love Rick haha)

What did everyone else think of the episode? I don’t want to wait until October for new episodes!
