    Kudos for making this film sound like a scifi-horror from the title. Too bad it was another YA novel-driven Hunger Games wannabe.

    ★★

    At the risk of being too harsh, I felt the film was too slow and it's moments of suspense led to nothing. It didn't feel scary at all but perhaps you have to be superstitious. Regardless, the cinematography and score were wonderful.

    This was very unexpected - it's a film with a hugely different perspective on how the plot is unfolded. Everything is told through one-on-one interview style head shots that explain the events through lots of different perspectives. What's fascinating is how the different characters view events based on their backgrounds, professions and personalities. At first it seems like it will be a little dull but the presence of the performances are truly fantastic. The acting brings the story and characters to life.

    Wow how good is Michael Douglas, am I right? Actually everyone in this was so fantastic and Liberace is such an interesting character (no surprise there). Soderbergh really pulled this together into a very cohesive, funny and emotional piece. With such a diverse filmography I wasn't sure what to expect from him with this particular narrative and aesthetic - needless to say the result speaks for itself.
