I will go ahead and warn you now. If you are not into horror or weird almost trippy films, Antrum is not for you. I was recommended the film a few weeks back by a friend who knows me pretty well. They said they just finished watching it, wasn’t too sure how they felt about the film and definitely wanted to hear my thoughts and opinions on the movie. A few weeks later I had the time and decided to watch the film in the middle of the day. This review will be a little different than the rest of my articles. I won’t be posting spoilers or telling too much detail in regards to the plot and storyline. This is a film I want you to hear a little about and then go check out yourself.
When I first turned on The Girl on the 3rd Floor I was slightly confused. To be honest I scanned/half read the synopsis and just threw it on since I didn’t see anything else that caught my eye on Netflix at the time. The film as a whole has a very weird tone. It’s bland yet bright, a little dull yet still interesting. It’s a little difficult to explain if I’m being honest but I will definitely try my best. However, before I get into the details of the story and the plot, let me breakdown some cast, crew, and setting info of this weird yet bizarre horror film.
The Perfection is yes, far from perfect, however so worth it. I know it’s cheesy, but it is how I’m feeling and let me tell you why. I got a little hint about watching The Perfection, on Facebook of course. One of the horror groups I’m involved in mentioned it. I looked it up, and decided right then and there, “why not?”. So, I get on Netflix and check out the film. Mind you, I have no idea what it’s about or who’s in it. I just know that it was recommended by a few horror fans. Yes, I’m expecting some gore, a disturbing plot, and a few twists. However, what I experienced was not even close to what I was expecting.
When I initially heard about 13 Cameras, I was intrigued like no other. Yes, I had a slight fear of hidden surveillance, and I like many others got too carried away with research one day and realized it happens more often than not. Therefore, a few years ago when I heard about 13 Cameras, I gave the film a try not knowing what to expect. In all honesty at first, I was not happy with the film. However, as I watched it a second and even a third time, it began to grow on me. I commend Victor Zarcoff on his writing and directing of the film. To say it gave me the absolute creeps is quite the understatement.
The first on my list is going to be Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare that comes out this April. This film really caught my attention with just the trailer alone. It starts off with a group of people playing the truth or dare game. The game is suddenly stopped when a guy tells the truth that he only wants to be around one of the girls to play and get rid of the game. He considers the game a curse and he’s ready to be left alone. The key is to tell the truth and do the dare. If you don’t, you die. There is no escaping this game, and it only ends when all the players are dead. While this won’t be the scariest film of the year, I think the concept is kind of cool. Yes, I’ve seen something similar, but the aesthetic of the “players,” once they’re involved in the game, is something I’m looking forward to as well.
Before I start, I wanted to warn whoever is reading this that there are spoilers in this post.
