Satanic 2016 movie review. Directed by Jeffrey Hunt. Distribution by
Magnet Releasing. SODA pictures. Rated R, certificate 15 running time
Satanic plot summary:
Four college coeds on the way to Coachella decide to stop off at LA to visit Santaic haunts, made famous through history. They unfortunately on route take in a homeless stranger, who they feel sorry for. Which is a terrible mistake as they are tricked into somehow managing to invoke and then sell their souls to the Devil.
Starring Sarah Hyland, Justin Chon, Steven Krueger, Clara Mamet, Sophie Dalah. Directed by Jeffrey Hunt ( Vampire Diaries fame) in a film that has been hated, slated, and just about torn apart from all critics, and in all fairness they are right as this movie is bad, but and a big but, it is actually enjoyable, with a great ending. In all fairness I did guess the twist, but it is still clever regardless, you do need to pay attention to some of the dialogue early on to understand, one crucial point is when Sophie Dalah ( Alice) says " hell is a beautiful confusion "
The film only 73 minutes long spends almost 40 plus minutes in character development, leaving a window of just about 20 minutes to cram all the horror bits in. The scares are predictable, and lame, with no decent scares, using tired old tricks like seeing loads of cutlery stuck to the kitchen ceiling, dead birds scattered along the floor. We have no sense of dread throughout this movie, with some bad dialogue throughout, although it is well acted, the script is bloody awful, as I said the ending does improve the film slightly, but only slightly. With strong performances from Sarah Hyland ( Modern Family) and Sophie Dalah ( Unbroken) still cannot save this from being completely forgettable.
We have a director in Jeffery Hunt who clearly loves LA with most of the budget spent on expensive Ariel shots of the LA skyline, which is intercut between scenes, that make no editorial sense, hey ho if the budget is spent on a helicopter why not keep showing the Arial shots.
It is a one star movie, but I did like the ending so it does upgrade it to 2/5**
I came across this trailer on YouTube yesterday, and it is doing the rounds again on social media, a trailer first showing in 2015, that got everyone talking " is this for real" " this can not be a film can it?" As it turns out no, it is a trailer that is well made, but certainly is not going to be a film anytime soon.
A one joke trailer about a randy ghost intent on jerking men off, using handjobs, I'm surprised the tag line wasn't "Cumming soon".
This was obviously made by men with a running narrative that women cannot give a decent handjob, and having them do the deed is worse than death, instead you have a ghost who wants to jerk all men to death.
It is as awful as you'd expect it to be, but I still found myself chuckle a few times, it is rude, crude, insinuating, and in fairness harmless fun, a film if made I would actually probably watch, it certainly looks better than the recent Cabin Fever, Evil Dead 2013.
I really had high expectations for this movie especially as it covers something that affects me and millions of others that is extreme nightmares and sleep paralysis, a condition where your brain thinks your awake yet you are still dreaming, yet you cannot move your body, and you feel like something else is in the room with you.
Plot summary, the Morgan's who are already suffering from grief, after losing a child to cot death, and their oldest son Daniel (Lucas Bond) is suffering night terrors, and a nightmare of something trying to suck the life out of him. They go to a Sleep expert Alice Arnolds (Maggie Q) who's own life suffered a tradegy when her brother died as a young child in a sleepwalking accident. These are resurfaced again after coming in contact with the boys family, who she is trying to help, with nightmares of her younger brother tormenting her once more. With her visions and nightmares getting progressively worse, and the boys life is in serious danger as these…
A rarity that a sequel surpasses the original, but to actually better it, and out smart it, is an amazing feat. I cannot put into words how good this movie is. A film that Ryan Reynolds was born to play, a natural comedian, the one liners, the piss taking of Marvel and DC, the whole X Men theme is ripped apart again, with Wade whizzing around the School for gifted, in Professor Xavier's chair saying it smells like Patrick Stuart. The action set pieces are bigger and better, the car, moped chase scene is worth the admission price alone. A film that was so naturally funny these days are a rarity alone, it is without doubt easily one of the funniest scripts ever. With spot on casting from the inclusion of Josh Brolin as Cable, cameos from Bill Skarsgård, to Terry Crews, Rob Delany as Peter. With outstanding performances from Zazie Beetz as Domino, and Hunt From The Wildness actor Julian Dennison as Firefist. This film is as close to perfection as any movie I'll ever go and see. …
