    ★★½

    I was pleasantly surprised at this light supernatural thriller.

    A writer (Steve Daron) and his mistress (Guisela Moro) go away to a remote town so he can finish his book. It just so happens that kids are disappearing at an alarming rate in this town.

    Guisela (who is incredibly gorgeous and a decent actress) follows a suspicious vehicle who she thinks has something to do with the missing kids.

    This sets in a motion a world of hurt for her.…

    Poltergeist

    ★½

    I was hoping a re-watch would show put this movie into a better light for me but I was mistaken.

    Irritating characters that I felt zero empathy with. Saxon Sharbino was the only character that was remotely interesting.

    Follows the original but seems to move at a furious pace that leaves little to the imagination.

    At no point was this movie scary.

    Some decent EFX save this movie from a 1/2 star.

Loaded with some great actors this version did a very nice job of pacing. A brutal thriller, that has some very graphic elements attached to it. I loved the Bryan Ferry song that ran at the end of the credits, "Is Your Love Strong Enough". I originally heard that in Legend and it is a fantastic song.

    The Babysitter

    ★★★★

    A fun horror comedy that I thoroughly enjoyed.

    Judah Lewis plays a 14 year that still needs a babysitter mostly due to his low self-esteem. But when the babysitter is introduced, Samara Weaving, I don't think anyone under 120 years old would not want her watching over them.

    Judah's friend, Emily Alyn Lind, tells Judah to sneak out and see what the babysitter does once he is supposed to be in bed.

    Well the cast of hotties playing spin the…
