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.
When I was told by a coworker to watch the Netflix original series Mindhunter, I was definitely hesitant. Between the title and the fact that it was a Netflix original about serial killers, I was slightly anxious to see how the series would flow. I will go ahead and admit that the first two episodes sucked me right in. I was trapped, engaged, and obsessed with the show immediately. The basis of the show is about FBI agents who work in the Behavioral Science department. As partners, they decide to go on the road and teach classes about Behavioral Science to many men in law enforcement. While on the road traveling, they get involved with homicide cases that need extra help from their department. One of the agents makes the decision to visit infamous serial killers that are locked up to not only pick their brains, but to research their past, as well.
There is something about the 'Insidious' franchise that is ridiculously entertaining even though they can be extreme and over-the-top a lot of the time. However, I can honestly say that I’m guilty of not only seeing all the 'Insidious' films in theaters, but purchasing them as well. For example, I will be seeing Insidious: The Last Key in theaters and, once it’s out on DVD, I will be buying it as well. Now, because the new 'Insidious' has recently been released, I thought I’d go down memory lane when it comes to the franchise. I wanted to start with the beginning, the original, the first 'Insidious' film.
