5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Bones [rental], 4 July 2014
I'm not sure this movie is susceptible to standard review grades, being as it's so weird, kinda like a "love-it-or-hate-it" type thing. So my rating is kinda arbitrary, as a pass/fail grading system would've worked better here.

If nothing else the movie had a defined ending, something not that common with found footage.

Antisocial has bigger primary cast than Pontypool, though it has many similarities, including how people seem confused after becoming infected but before going berserk. Its considerably harder to believe in because it shows much more.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Sleeping [rental], 18 May 2014
For whatever reason, this movie is essentially Black Christmas with a giallo killer. It's set pointlessly around Christmas, which just makes audience members think of Black Christmas even more.

I've seen very little giallo outside Argento and some recent ones (e.g. Tulpa). The Sleeper's murder scenes are both shorter and less detailed, but there's emphasis on the brutality of the murders. There's even muted dialogue in at least one murder scene, like Tenebrae and possibly others. Except Tenebrae's muted line was both revealed and important. The Sleeper doesn't reveal what was said. This killer has focusing on him when between murders (and before they start) which seemed right out… Read more
