Scary Movie Review Month: conclusion

To bring October (aka Scary Movie Review Month) to a close, I'm going to go back over and give reviews and new scorings to all the movies I watched, including the ones that received the stream of conscious reviews.

The Innkeepers
This was a fun spin on the haunted places schtick. It was subtle and quirky.

Apartment 143
Jump scares galore. But schizophrenia doesn't cause levitation.

Episode 50
This was just plain bad. I couldn't bring myself to feel anything for the characters.

What a strange way to be introduced to Bollywood horror.

The Descent 2
It wasn't as good as the first one. Which I'm sure is cliche to say. But it was entertaining.
5 out of 10

World's worst sister of the year. All years. But, in the end, they deserved it.

This one took too long to get to the real 'meat' of the movie. I felt like the movie was almost over before things actually started happening.

It had promise, but the execution wasn't as good as it could have been. Thankfully, there's going to be a sequel and they'll get a second chance.

No Tell Motel
I can't.... I just can't. It's that bad.

The Raven
Dark and brooding, gory and foreboding. While I didn't think Cusack looked like Poe, I enjoyed the facade.

This was an incredibly beautiful feast for the eyes. As well as breathtaking in action and creepiness.

Paranormal Activity 4
I'm beginning to notice a trend here: I really liked 1 and 3, was disappointed with 2 and slightly disappointed with 4. Which is great, because this means that 5 will be great.

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D
I really enjoyed this one. The video game nerd in me thrived while watching this and really appreciated the hints at Silent Hill Origins and Downpour.
