Alien Raiders (USA 2008)

200812270921.jpg

Synopsis (possible Spoiler): A bunch of people in a confined space. Aliens. Guns. Action.

It would’ve been more fun if they had named the movie differently – it’s kind of a give away. The directory tries hard to keep the audience guessing what is going on. And it’s working. Well, for a little while anyways. The small amount of money they had they spent on the practical effects. Carlos Bernard and Rockmond Dunbar are both in it. It’s certainly not your big-hollywood horror flick.

IMDb 6.9/10 (over 300 votes)

Don’t bother: Black Water (AUS 2007)

I was intrigued by the premise of the film. Stuck in the Australian outback with only crocks around. I was hoping for some interesting ideas (as there really is no story to build upon). Granted, it is based on real events, but still, as a movie it’s just not that interesting. There were some scenes I enjoyed, simply for the fact that the movie is all about ‘things jumping into camera’ from all kind of directions. Almost all of the movie happens with people sitting in trees. Once again, my taste seems off: RT 79% IMDb 6.1/10

Don’t bother: Black Sheep (NZ 2007)

I have no idea how this movie was rated so highly on RT 71% and IMDb 6.1. It’s not like I didn’t want to watch it until the end, but it was close. I lost pretty much all interest after the first 20 minutes and just continued watching to see what kind of gore effects they could come up with. It’s really a one-gag movie. And it might work for people who have seen sheeps in the last 12 months – for all other people, pass it on… not worth the time.

Fido (USA 2006)

Synopsis (possible spoiler): Welcome to Willard, a small town lost in the idyllic world of the 50’s, where the sun shines every day, everybody knows their neighbor, and rotting zombies carry the mail.

I had a lot of fun with this movie. It does fall a bit in the second half, but the first half should keep you going to the end, and still enjoy it.

RT 67% (61 reviews) – IMDb 7.0/10 (over 5600 votes)

À l’intérieur aka “Inside” (France 2007)

Picture 1.jpg

Synopsis (possible spoiler): Still grieving over her recently deceased boyfriend, a pregnant woman becomes haunted by a mysterious woman.

First up – this movie is rated “R” for a reason. Forget any of the Hostel or Saw movies. To its credit, when you take away all the gore and fake blood, the movie is haunting and scary. The soundtrack works, the lighting is interesting. Disturbing, that’s for sure.
