Number of Times Seen – 1 (26 Jan 2014)
Brief Synopsis – A true crime novel writer gets too involved in his new research topic and finds out that the murders were the work of a serial killer who has been killing for over 40 years.
He has once again proven to me the reasons why I don’t like films from the horror genre.
I truly HATED this movie!!!
I didn’t hate it tho only for reasons you would think. It’s not because it isn’t an interesting idea, but because it scared the crap out of me! While I was watching it, I kept thinking that eventhough I’m 40 years old, I could get nightmares from this.
What’s ironic about that is that the writer C. Robert Cargill got the idea from a nightmare that he had after watching The Ring (2002).
The concept here is interesting, but I just didn’t like where they chose to go with it.
I can’t say that I enjoyed a single minute of this movie, but maybe it’s just because I don’t like or even understand the genre at all. (and I have no problem with that).
I plan on trying to stay far away from this genre in the foreseeable future.
Bottom Line – More proof that horror isn’t worth watching IMHO. Hated every minute of this movie unfortunately.
Rating – Razzie Worthy
