BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
I finally did it! I finally got Shudder, and already, I know I am keeping it past the free period they give you. I am down to the second to last episode of Creepshow and I only started it yesterday... But that is waiting for Youtube!
Going back to Shudder - first film I watched on it? One Cut of the Dead. And did I like it? I loved it!
One Cut of the Dead is a breath of fresh air for any horror film, it mainly does zombies, but really, it needs a whole new category for itself. I can't say too much about it, as it really does help to go in blind and not know what you're in for, in my mind anyway as that is what I did. You can watch the trailer though, as it really does not give anything away, just makes you even more intrigued/confused, confused is a big one here...
The film starts with you watching a horror film, a zombie movie to say the least. Goes straight into it, no intro or anything, and it's really not the best. I was watching this with my dad and I feel like both of us at one time or anything, considered that this was not that good a film, and to fine something else. Neither said anything though, and both knew that the reviews were really good, so we stuck with it, and thank God we did!
The opening zombie film is not good, and is awkward and just all over the place, and honestly, you're lost. Reading reviews, and seeing it has 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, you're lost and thinking you've put on the wrong film. But stick with it, as it really is one of the smartest films I have ever seen. Don't give up with it. It's one of the most original films out there, and you may feel put off by the start, but don't change it - stick with it and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
I have such praise for this film! Such praise, I highly recommend it to anyone, even if you're not a zombie fan, do it. You'll be sorry if you don't, and I feel this is one of the shortest reviews ever, but I do not want to ruin it for anyone!!
Oh, and I am keeping Shudder forever.
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
