1.0 out of 5 stars Its 38 Years Later I'd Rather Forget It, 2 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was so disappointed with this film.I wasn't expecting a rerun of The Exorcist which is an all time favorite.But i don't get the jist of this. Reagan is four years older,butstill getting hauntings of Pazuzu which wa the demon expelled in the original. So Reagan is under the care of psychologist plated by Louise Fletcher backed Up by fatherLamont(Richard Burton)and we also see flashbacks of Father Merrin (Max Von Sydow)Sounded good-I laughed in one scene when Linda was speaking to a young autistic child and when she got the child talking the child asked her what was wrong with Lindawho casually said that she'd been possessed by a demon.Ellen Burstyn said in the original film that she didn't remember any of it.
Certainly not a rerun but a bit of a mish mash that took itself far too seriously.The story wasn't very good either. I 've seen it on DVD recently.Time has not improved it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Soaking Susan, 2 July 2015
This review is from: Amityville 3 [DVD] [1984] (DVD)
Laughable third installment.I liked the original Amityville Horror and Amityville 2 was scary enough bt siting in a half empty cinema watching through 3 D glasses didnt help. Again a family moves into this now infamous house.We all know the legend but their kids friends decide to play ouija in the house. One question unnerves them .who will die? Susan of course,which she does of course. a laughable 5 or so minutes of the name Susan follows. Oh yeah there is also a well in the basement and when the rubber thing jumped out a laugh rippled through the six or so other people in the auditorium. I ve read the reviews and the DVD doesn't sound good either. No I'll pass on this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fright night -NOT, 2 July 2015
This review is from: Ouija [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
Teenagers try to get in touch with their dead friend using a ouija board but contact a demon instead (as you would).There is a twist iin this film that would have been good in a better film. Thats the problem. we sit through two thirds of the film before anything paranormal happens. well I wont spoil it for you.Of course this is made for a young audience rather than an old horror addict like myself and that is probably why I found this the lamest film I have seen in a while.Its just not good even though I saw it at the cinema on Halloween.If you must see it,rent or stream it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Is this The Final???, 16 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another in the never ending Final Destination.this time a bridge collapses -or does it?Also made in 3D and easy to see where . The special effects were okay and 3D is a good format to bring something new to a story.This is no longer creepy even although death is still after all these young adults.There are the usual gory deaths some done in 3D but the film lacks direction and it could be so much better if it didn't follow the same story over again. See it if you must but if you're bored of this franchise by now expect the same as the other four. It also arrived well packed and quickly and my pensioner friend has now got all five to watch.I've heard there is another one due.......

3.0 out of 5 stars Dead again, 16 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Saw this at the cinema in 3D. Now we are at a race track and a guy has a premonition of the track falling apart and a lot o people getting killed -or does he? This was okay in 3D as we all dodged wheels flying at us bu the rest was very run of the mill gory and carried on the story of people cheating death and coming to a sticky end. You can see in 2D where the 3D was good but although the story is okay it seemed by this time to see just how gory they could make it.Gore doesn't scare and there few if any jump shocks.It came well wrapped in very quick time.Not a bad film if you like this sort of thing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Deadly Boring, 16 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was the weakest film I ever went to see at the cinema.This starts the story of people trying to cheat death. Starts off with a guy panicking because he is sure the plane he and his friends are on is going to explode,that's quite a good partThe plane does blw up and the survivors,who have cheated death once,try to survive subsequent threats.The end made me laugh when one of the irritating characters said that he would live forever-this certainly was not Fame.Some girls in the cinema loved this film but I thought it was poor and I only bought it for a Friend Who liked it when she caught a bit of it on TV.It arrived well packed and in very quick time .I recommend the service but not the film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Final, 16 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was the second movie and was much better than the first . This one starts with a motorway pile up-or does it.After the first disaster death is out t catch thee people who cheated it by getting off the plane in the first movie.Make no mistake this is gory and there is a real eye popping scene that people were put off their popcorn.However despite all the death,the special effects are fine and the story rattles along at a fair pace. If you've seen the rest you may think this is one of the better in this series
