The New Face of Fear
After learning of an urban legend in which a demented serial killer named SMILEY can be summoned through the Internet, mentally fragile Ashley must decide whether she is losing her mind or becoming Smiley's next victim.
That film gave me cancer.
almost two hours of my life that I will never get back
Let me tell you the part I'm having a hard time with: ALL OF IT!
Michael J. Gallagher makes his feature film directorial debut by giving us an old school horror throwback. He takes a modern day twist on Candyman and gives us a generic 90s slasher film in 2012 complete with predictable twists and a cast of Abercrombie & Fitch rejects.
The screenplay was written by the director himself and Glasgow Phillips a man that was a South Park staff writer for less then a year over a decade ago. His ideas were just too big for the show. The film is "modern" because it has constant references to 4chan, Anonymous, hackers and everyone calls themselves by their online…
My curiosity was peaked with the five minute video going around with scenes straight from this movie proclaiming it's stupidity and then coming here and seeing almost every user who has logged the film has rated it 1 star or less.
This is obviously not going to be high art. But it's honestly not the worst movie I've ever seen. There are beyond ridiculously stupid plot-lines involving 4CHAN, glorifying hackers, memes and a significant plot point involving the atrocious word (I'm using the term "word" loosely) "lulz."
An urban legend involving anonymous video chat, a Candyman-like scenario, calling the happy faced killer (dubbed "Smiley") by typing "I did it for the lulz" three times, but you really have to mean…
It's times like these I wish a rating lower than 1/2 a star existed.
I thought this movie was going to be scarier, more tense, dynamic but it wasn't. It has a good plot though, but very banal. The story reveals slowly, without any excess clues and hints, so sometimes you think what it is even all about? The trailer and the poster are not proving the movie cause there's a boring action development! Even in the end, although there were 2 sudden unexpected endings which definately deserve separate star!
So, who was Smiley? I guess I know.
There are two false jump scares within the first three minutes of this film and that kind of sets the tone. Its like Candyman for millennial internet types, only this contains none of the nuance or depth.
After discovering an urban legend of a demented serial killer, who has nothing but a carved "smiley" on his face, a mentally fragile teenager must decide whether she is going insane - or will be the next victim. Forgettable.
OH... my god... que cosa más penosa xD
Cheesy horror film made by YouTubers, starring YouTubers. Don't expect phenomenal acting or a rock solid story, but it's definitely entertaining and fun. I watched it for my love of the various YouTubers in it, and I wasn't disappointed.
I absolutely loved the ending.
Film #12 of the "Scavenger Hunt 16" challenge
23. Two movies with a combined IMDb score of 10. (3.5/10, Sightseers 6.5/10)
This is the dumbest horror film I've ever seen. In a earlier post I made, I expected some things making fun of shitty horror films but then all of the things is what I've expected in a horror film. I seen the director's YouTube output, on a channel called TotallySketch, most of it is very funny and interactive, literally. (www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwi21aKySWY) There's a mix of humour and a sense of fear on a 20 minute-long YouTube game than there is on this fucking 90 minute film. Oh and Shane Dawson, who I don't fucking see anything I like about him…
Very small preview review before I hopefully watch it later this week. Now is probably not the time to watch it as I want to watch others. While I haven't had the most desire to see this, I have seen Michael J. Gallagher's half hour-long collabrations with Shane Dawson at Halloween time and I don't think people get the joke that the jumpscares are supposed to be shitty to take the piss out of the other horror films involving the internet. I can't help, after seeing some of the jump scares, but anticipate a bit of satirical horror although I'm not expecting full-on comedy like those videos. I'm definitely watching Internet Famous. I miss that time when I always watched Shane Dawson being crude twice every week.
