Film reviews #1: The Last Exorcism (2010), Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010)

The Last Exorcism (2010)
Horror. Thriller. The film's protagonist - pastor of the church, which deals with exorcism. But the main difference between the movie characters and real exorcists in the fact that the protagonist does not believe in God (Yeah, yeah. The pastor who does not believe in God), nor in the devil and his exorcism is a common hoax and cheating. In this way, the pastor for a living. Helped the pastor spends exile and the people themselves, who often were not obsessed, but they just thought they possessed. But another exile turned to the pastor of a dangerous event. He was first exposed to something otherworldly, evil and powerful. The manner of filming recalled "Cloverfield" and "District 9". This psevdodokumentalka. I like this style, but each film is suitable. What plus such a manner that it hides flaws of the plot. If the writer is unable to come up with something interesting in the story, then you can just skip this point. And what is negative, so this confusion. Basically this manner photography used in horror for some reason. Perhaps, in order to give more horror close to real life. To the spectator it seemed that something is happening on screen, it's really going on. And yet such tricks directors at me do not apply. Horrors scare me longer since the early 90's, while "Living Dead" and "Freddy Krueger". Then it was the first time. Horror shows little and very seldom. Now it's just the dominance of the genre. Has shown all that can be displayed. It has long been not afraid of anything, but just laugh. This film is the same polukomichny. And it begins as a comedy. Still, the film I was pleased. Scare me, he could not, but the mood lifted, plus from all very high quality. It is evident that no low-budget film. The actors play superbly. At one time can glance like a comedy. 4 points out of 5.

Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010)
Horror. Fantastic. Action. Thriller. The third part of the main character is infected and did a super-zombie. In this part of the main character as a punishment to cure. But it turned out that on his head. Milla Jovovich heroine still managed to escape from the laboratory to produce the virus "Ambrela, gathered a handful of people who are not infected, and tried to find an oasis on behalf of Arcadia, where they were supposed to be only healthy people. This part I liked more than a third. The third was a bit worse than the plot, but the main enemies of reason are not zombies and crows. Also the zombies, but still a bird. In this part, finally people are zombies are the main enemies. And even there is one boss with an ax, which does not even take a shot in the head. As the horror film is not terrible, but as fiction and drama is not bad. The plot is typical for all residents. No sense, but a lot of shooting and special effects. 4 points out of 5.


  1. I have been wondering if The Last Excorcism was worth it, Ill probably rent it now, nicely done review

  2. Resident Evil was so terrible. Last Exorcism was great until the end, then it made me angry.
