THE DEVIL'S PASSENGER REVIEW



No one rides free.

Starring: Colleen Kelly, Gabrielle Niebauer, Will James Johnson, and Steve Young

Directed and written by: Dave Bundzen

  A woman comes to a stop at a light, which changes her life forever. She quickly has a big decision to make after seeing a screaming woman pop up in the back of the van in front of her. Unfortunately she drops her phone, so has to decide whether to follow the van, or not. Of course she follows with good intentions in mind, but nothing good is about to happen.
  "The Devil's Passenger" provides just the right amount of suspense at a perfect pace. A lot of different things could have happened when she eventually investigates the van, but they come up with a creative, and fun ending. Not a lot is said, but both actress do a good job pretending they’re scared.  Check it out for yourself, and feel free to comment!

HELL FEST REVIEW



A masked serial killer turns a horror-themed amusement park into his personal playground, terrorizing a group of friends while the rest of the patrons believe that it is all part of the show.

Starring: Bex Taylor-Klaus, Reign Edwards, Amy Forsyth, and Tony Todd

Directed by: Gregory Plotkin

Written by: Seth M. Sherwood, Blair Butler, William Penick, Christopher Sey, and Akela Cooper

  As someone who has become frustrated by all the PG-13 movies, it’s good to see a rated R slasher in theaters. When it comes time for the killer to make the kill, it’s nice to actually see the kill, and not watch the camera pull away to screams. It’s great to see the blood and brutality again. No there aren’t any earth shattering kills in “Hell Fest,” but the point is being able to see them.
  Besides the kills, a horror-themed amusement park makes such a great setting for a horror movie. It’s fun seeing what kind of park they create, and watching random people get scared in the background. Actually, the movie might have focused a little too much on that, and not on what’s going on with this group of characters, and the killer. Actually, so little about the killer is revealed that it sets up a very intriguing ending.
  No “Hell Fest” isn’t going to break records, but it’s a not a bad way start to October. For someone who loves slashers, and horror-themed amusement parks, it’s really enjoyable, and makes one wish they were there (minus the serial killer). The park is just a bonus to actually being able to see the kills, and a different ending. If you’re looking for an appetizer before the main course that is “Halloween,” then give this one a chance. With that, I give this movie 3 pools of blood!

THE NUN REVIEW



A priest with a haunted past and a novice on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate the death of a young nun in Romania and confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun.

Starring: Demian Bichir, Taissa Farmiga, and Jonas Bloquet

Directed by: Corin Hardy

Written by: Gary Doberman, and James Wan

  “Insidious” seemed to set a new era of scares, and paved the way for The Conjuring Universe.  A whole universe that’s built on scares, but the scares seem to be getting less effective as they go. It doesn’t help that what might be the best scares of the movie are given away in the trailer. Will it be any different in “The Nun?”
  Another problem with these movies is that it takes so long for them to get anywhere important. It almost seems like they make it drag just so that the scares wake the audience up. Father Burke (Demian Bichir) and Sister Irene (Taissa Farmiga) go to the Abbey to investigate the recent death of a nun. However, it’s a halfhearted investigation at best, and there’s nothing exciting about these characters. The only interesting character, Frenchie (Jonas Bloquet), leaves during the portion of the movie he’s needed the most.
  Overall the scares are alright, but as usual it doesn’t seem like there are enough of them. They try to keep up a level of tension by adding constant loud dramatic music that ends up being more annoying then anything. Too bad the audience has to wait to the end of the film for the nun to let loose. She’s definitely creepy and scary, and deserves more screen time in that form. Too bad for most of the film, the nun is shown coming out of the shadows, and the scares end before getting to appreciate how scary looking she is.
  Besides the slow pace, and annoying music, the most aggravating moment might have been when a small twist is revealed at the end. It draws a direct connection between this movie and “The Conjuring.” It’s the same thing they pulled at the end of “Annabelle 2.” Sorry but that’s lazy to do the same kind of ending twice. How about some more thought and originality, and include the connection somewhere else in the film? In the end, “The Nun” isn't different from the last couple of movies in this universe so I have to give it 2 pools of blood, and hope the eventually sequel is better!

THE MEG REVIEW



After escaping an attack by what he claims was a 70-foot shark, Jonas Taylor must confront fears to save those trapped in a sunken submersible. 

Starring: Jason Statham, Bingbing Li, and Rainn Wilson

Directed by: Jon Turteltaub

Written by: Dean Georgaris, Jon Hoeber, Erich Hoeber, and Steve Alten

  While “The Meg” took a bite out of the box-office, did it do enough to dethrone the shark of all sharks, Jaws? This is definitely an action packed shark movie that’s perfect for summer viewing. While not able to karate kick the shark, Jason Statham does his best to take the fight to the shark. 
  However, while advertised as the biggest shark of them all, it just doesn’t do enough damage. While it has a chance to swallow tons of swimmers, it prefers to just swim around under them…why? And the few times it does attack people, there’s an extreme shortage of blood. It’s a shark movie, lets see it sink its teeth into someone. 
  There’s plenty of excitement in the final scene, as Jonas (Jason Statham) does his best to rid the ocean of this beast of a shark. It’s all good until he gets some help from some unlikely friends. Sorry, but they needed to find something a little less ridiculous and fake looking to conclude this story. "The Meg" is no "Jaws", but still worth a look, so I give it 3 pools of blood.
