1.0 out of 5 stars Blair Witch 2 - Book of Shadows, 12 May 2003
A grossly dissapointing film which pales significantly in comparison to the first.
The movie lacks the sucess of the previous Blair Witch. It shows no signs of innovation, idea or class. Not even remotley frightening it follows a very similar story line as the first. The plot is thinly altered, but lacks any of the basic scary approach of any decent movie of its genre.
The acting is mediocre, but you almost feel sorry for the cast who could have done very little more with the storyline.
Crinigingly bad story. No class. No style. Halfhearted performances and a lack any of the grittyness of the first being plastered over with Hollywoods glitzy style. Much more marketable, it dissapoints, is un-scary, un-ammusing and having seen the first, a painful movie to watch. Plus to finish it off it has very poorly orchestrated ending.
Save yourself some money and buy a truely great flick like '28 Days Later' or 'Donnie Darko'.

5.0 out of 5 stars 28 Days Later, 12 May 2003
This review is from: 28 Days Later (2002) [DVD] (DVD)
When I saw this film I had no assumptions about it whatsoever. I was pleasantly suprised.
Danny Boyles latest piece far surpasses previous projects such as 'The Beach' allthough not the box office smash 'The Beach' was this film has been grossly under appraised. Though he has proved himself over previous years to be a excellent director, in the horror / thriller genre of 28 Days Later he has found his niche.
The film has a unique and twisting plot which exhibits and element of realism rarely seen in a film of its kind. Unlike most horror movies of the past decade, it is impressively belivable, this is accentuated by the enitre film being shot with DV cameras.
We see a post-apocalyptic London, desolated by a freak virus, aptley titled 'rage', which has basically turned the majority of the UK population into psychotic zombie-esque killers. The story follows everday guy (Cillian Murphy) in a journey of dealing with the realisation of the changed world and his survival. Teamed up with a handful of survivors, they struggle to find hope in this starkingly eerie and threatening world.
Alhough the film has no A-List stars in it, it includes great performances by such people as Christopher Ecclestone as a sinister army commander. The whole film is beautiful, belivable and scares the hell out of you in its approach. A true British classic which again has gone relatively unappreciated because it lacks the Hollywood glitz of other films.
If you want to be scared, watch this movie.
