    Submerged 2015

    ★★ Watched 26 Nov, 2015

    While its trailer didn’t “wow” me, the newly released thriller Submerged had two other aspects that drew my attention and made me deem it worth a look.

    First, the director – Steven C.

    One of the most infuriatingly frustrating films I've seen this year. The premise is genuinely creepy (and gross) but the actions of the entire cast are completely illogical and ridiculous.

    If your vagina is gushing blood and maggots, your eyes are bleeding, your fingernails are falling off, and your hair is coming out in clumps you'd probably go to the hospital right? Apparently not if you're a self-centered twenty-something. In that case, you go to work, then try to win…
