    HORRORx52 (2019)

    Young adults having fun then getting killed? Old concept but it works and entertains. I enjoyed the humor in the movie.

    So weird guy comes across you and your car that you left alone for hours in the middle of nowhere and takes them even further out into nowhere.

    Like many horror films it starts off slow, climaxes, and then is slow again. I wish it was more action-packed, but that's not the kind of movie this is.

    "A word at the start: laughing sounds a lot like screaming."

    This movie was definitely an insane experience. As was our star.
    The inter-cut interviews was an interesting choice.

    The hallucinatory trips were pretty crazy and one of the scarier elements of the film. (Other than Lilico's psychopathic actions of course)

    This film depicted a dark side of the model/beauty business and I appreciate it for that. The movie was a bit long though.

    The ending was a bit odd.

    It's been a couple years since I've watched this... and holy crap.

    I love the blending of actual horror, claustrophobia/caves, and the supernatural.

    I'd say this movie is underrated and deserves more attention.

    HORRORx52 (2019)

    I read the book years ago. I don't think I ever saw the original movie in its entirety and if I did I don't remember it.

    This adaptation of the story was okay. If I recall correctly, in the original Gage died and was brought back to life. In this version, Ellie dies.

    Was this a needed change? I dunno. Was it interesting? Sure.

    Jud was killed in a very similar way to the original.

    One thing this movie did have the original beat in was the gore.
