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.
Out of all fan theories this one I heard the other day makes complete sense, it is about the movie by M Night Shyamalan Signs. The movie that is equally loved and hated at the same time, but with this recent fan theory makes more sense. The Theory is this.... The Alien's are actually Demons, it seems completely "out there" but when you actually break it down it makes complete sense, and actually improves the movie tenfold instead of an Alien Invasion it is actually a Demon led apocalypse. 1. The beings are never referred to as Alien's, we as a viewer just assume that to be the case. 2. The film is about Faith and loosing it, we see Mel Gibson's character grieving for his lost wife who died in a car accident, leaving him a lonely parent, no matter how much he believed in God and prayed for his wife, she still died. 3. The beings have Hooved feet like a devil, which has been the image for demons and the Devil since forever. 4. Mel Gibson's daughter in this is a cel…
Tree is about to have a very bad day, again, and again and again.
College Grad Tree, a self centred bitch, who you take an instant dislike to, who is foul to everyone.
Treats everyone like dirt, then wonders why someone would want her dead. With a groundhog Day loop thing going on every time she is murdered she has to live through the same Monday the 18th, until she can find out her wants her dead, solve her own murder, and maybe become a better person in the mean time.
The thing is I really wanted to hate this movie, but I couldn't, because of the performance from Jessica Rothe as Tree, in her first scream queen role, starring previously in La La Land, and Netflix's Parallels.
She is so likeable and believable in the role, although playing the bitch perfectly, she is deep down a damaged soul, still mourning the death of her mother, and her grief is her anger towards fellow People.
With some inventive kills, and no matter what Tree does, the day always ends in her death, with…
