Good horror movie of the week? 1408 starring John Cusack. This was a great depiction, and expansion of the Stephan King short story. Here is the lowdown, WARNING SPOILER ALERT!!!
When Mike Enslin's ( John Cusak ) daughter died , he became obsessed with the paranormal , particularly the ' other side '. After years of being a paranormal writer & investigator , he has found - nothing. Mike is ready to give up his search for evidence of the paranormal. Until he hears of a possible subject for his new book - Room 1408 in the Dolphin Hotel , New York City. Mike is determined to prove that the rumours surrounding the room are fakes by staying in the room himself. He cannot be dissuaded by anyone , even the hotel manager Mr Olin ( Samuel L Jackson ) , tries to warn him off , but Mike is having none of it. That is until Room 1408 shows him its true colours ... and its many horrors . (IMdb 2007)
This was a fun movie, it had enough real writing to add creepiness to the shock spots and special effects. Over all I give it a Matinee Rating.
Bad movie of the week? Hands down it was the Covenant, 2006 revcently seen on STARZ. Here is the summary--
In 1692, in the Ipswich Colony of Massachusetts, five families of powerful witches commit to a covenant of silence to protect themselves against the witch hunters, but one of the families transgress their pact and is banished from their lands. Along the centuries, the power and the covenant are transmitted through their descendants and when the eldest son is eighteen years old, he ascends to a higher power. However, the use of magic addicts and if used in excess, ages the warlock. In the present days, four wizards teenage friends are in high school and their leader Caleb Danvers is close to his eighteenth birthday and consequently to ascend. He has just met Sarah Wenham and they are dating, when the appearance of darkling and supernatural dreams haunt the group. Sooner they find an evil warlock, descendant of the fifth ancient family that wants to strip Caleb's power. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (IMdb 2006)
This movie was as though it was assembled, not written or directed. I imagined a group of people at a table brainstorming what they would think was a cool excuse to get new teen stars in the same movie together. This brainstorming resulted in a Charmed with boys rip off that makes the show Charmed look like a good show.
I found myself really, I mean really wanting Werewolves in Nazi uniforms with lazer rifles mowing down the entire cast.
This is 86 minutes of my life I will never get back. This flick Got a cable rating based on previews but I will save you time and give it a NO NO NO not even.
