BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
I really really liked the idea of this film. Like really liked it. I thought it was very original, and I do sometimes like a good rom-zom-com... I feel that's a real thing... "After his girlfriend Nina dies, Rob falls in love with Holly. The new relationship faces a huge challenge when Nina comes back to life to sarcastically taunt the couple whenever they try to have sex."
Nina Forever does start out very strong. The characters aren't the most lovable, but then I don't feel they were meant to be that loveable if I am honest. You don't hate them, but you don't specifically warm to them either - you're not sure you'd be besties with them, let's say that. The story is fairly simple too, Nina dies and Rob, her ex falls in love with Holly, and every time they have sex, Nina pops up. Literally just pops out of nowhere, blood, brain matter and all. So much so, everytime she pops up, new bed sheets are needed. Like a really heavy period.
The thing I did find about Nina Forever, is that it didn't really go anywhere. The story didn't really feel like it went anywhere. It started off well and then just kind of stayed in that same mellow pond, where it seemed like it didn't know what it wanted to do or how it wanted to end. It just seemed to do the same thing over and over again. Rob and Holly have sex and Nina pops up. Then a normal bit of life, and then sex again. I know that seems realistic for life and the couple, but I just wanted more. I just wanted it to differ it all at some point, and it just never really did, and it does make me sad as I had kind of high hopes.
I didn't hate Nina Forever though, not at all, really, it's a fairly entertaining film. I just found it a bit samey through out I guess, but I still very much enjoyed it. It's just an original little known film, that isn't the best, but also isn't the worse. I wouldn't say no to watching it again, just not for a while. Great cast though, and of course, great effects and lots of blood. Great bloody orgies.
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
