5.5/10

I think it is worth a rewatch knowing the information revealed ahead of time.
The story can be sort of confusing.

7.5/10
Raw freaking rules. Love that film from beginning to end. Pairs nicely with Inside.

Re: Modern horror movies thread

Finally got around to Bird Box yesterday. I thought it was quite effective and interesting. Not a huge Bullock fan so was expecting her performance to ruin the film, but found her to be good in this role. Very interesting concept as well; as an aside, loved Malcovich's role/character.

Spoiler:


Solid movie. 7.5/10

Not a huge fan of horror movies but definitely am going to see this, Pet Sematary. Apparently from those that have first viewing rights, it's very good.

I liked Bird Box. It was like SPEED, but the mph was the blindfold
