The Luminous Dead is an emotional rollercoaster that takes you deep into the dark guts of an alien planet, haunted by the rumblings of creatures called Tunnelers that no one has survived an encounter with.
I had no idea what I was getting into with this movie, but Level 16 quickly sucked me in. The movie is a dystopian, sci-fi reimagining of The Lord of the Flies, but instead of boys, there are girls who are bred for purity and obedience.
I deep dive the Gothic world of female vampire eroticism with Carmilla, The Moth Dairies, and Jennifer's Body.
As a horror flick about a mysterious monster hunting down a group of friends while the four men attempt to repair their friendship through the horrific experience of unintentionally being hunted down by a monster, overall definitely a fun movie, but not exactly one that stands out.
This book was an odd one for me, not in a bad way though. The first half of the book starts off a wilderness horror, the four friends fight against the elements, then something that seems to be hunting them in the woods. Then the second half becomes cosmic horror.
The eeriest part of the movie was the sound of the locusts. If you have a fear of bugs, you'll likely get some chills, just because it is a movie abou
The pacing will set your nerves on fire, the suspense will gives you chills, and the overall conclusion and theme will haunt you for days.
One of the worst things in the world is when a movie seems so good that you let yourself get twisted up tight in it, only to see the ending and feel as though something was stolen from you.
The Good House has an excellent mix of horror and heartbreak, the supernatural and the human. Unfortunately, the ending didn't satisfy me in the way I'd hoped.
This movie held me tight up until the last quarter. Then the ending disappointed me. I felt like it left me with a lot of questions and not in the haunting way a good movie can leave a viewer with, but in a "oh, this just left a lot of confusing loose ends" kind of way.
