Amidst the fear of war-tattered post-activist in 1980 in Tehran, a previous medical learner Shideh is banned from resuming her learning since her participation with the student leftist crowd. Upon coming home, she removed most of the aged medical textbooks, and keeps the book for medical terminology rewarded for her by the newly dead mother. The war increasing, Shideh elected to remain in the city together with Dorsa, her daughter in spite of the complaints of Iraj, her husband, the doctor that has been called by the army and allocated to the locale of heavy battle. Iraj wanted Shideh to get Dorsa and stayed with his relatives in a secured part of the state, but Shideh, motivated with his offhand reply to her blocking, refuses. Dorsa was really upset to watch her father leaves, and Iraj promised to her that her much loved doll, Kimia, will surely protect her.

A new boy transferred in the neighboring Ebrahimi clan, who were his cousins; his relatives were murdered in an assault. During the shooting, he whispered something to Dorsa’s and handed her an appeal to ward off the devil spirits. Dorsa told Shideh that a boy told her regarding the fable of the Djinn, and a charm can shield her, although Shideh throws it away while clearing-out Dorsa’s room. Shideh visited Mrs. Ebrahimi and asked her to inform her relative not to be scared Dorsa with ghost tales, but an amazed Mrs. Ebrahimi informed her that a boy has been quiet since the deceased of his relatives. Dorsa developed a fever and some swing of nightmarish, and Shideh was also haunted with the same bad dreams.


The Writers’ View:

One of the best things in this movie was the social context and the historical setting that appeared while watching it. On the other hand, this is a claustrophobic resident-based horror movie; there were also real horrors outside the house. The truth is, the house is the shelter for the mother in so many ways, an area where she is not wearing restrictive clothing and my workout with her Jane Fonda videotape. Beyond the secured sanctuary she needs to deal with the repressive system that can fiercely punish her if the clothing is not proper or if they even heard she owned the VCR. The preventive living of ladies during the time of the Cultural Revolution is the actual life terror that the hero experiences out within their home, whereas the supernatural Djinn body is the awfulness she and her daughter suffered within their home. At identical moments, there were horrors of war that constantly occurred with potential fatal consequences and without warning.

Blair Witch (2016)

Blair-Witch-poster-s

The movie is an American found footage paranormal horror movie by director Adam Wingard with writer Simon Barrett. It is the third certified movie in the series of the Blair Witch. The movie was shot in a found recorded style, followed the crowd of college students and the local guides that undertake in the in Maryland Black Hills Forest to expose the mysteries enfolding the disappearance many years ago by Heather Donahue. Primarily, the movie’s link to the Blair Witch contract was kept secret, and the movie having been turned to the fake label, The Woods.


The Cast Lists:

James Allen McCune played as James Donahue

Valorie Curry played as Talia

Callie Hernandez played as Lisa Arlington

Brandon Scott played as Peter Jones

Corbin Reid played as Ashley Bennett

Wes Robinson played as Lane


The Story Line:

blair1

In year 2014, James Donahue discovered a YouTube video containing the image of a lady he believed to be his sibling Heather that vanished near Burkittsville in 1994 while on investigation about the myth of Blair Witch. Considering that she is still breathing, he goes to the forest with her friends Ashley Bennett, Peter Jones, and the movie learner Lisa Arlington, who wanted to film James’ investigation for the documentary entitled The Absence of Closure. The locals Lane and Talia also joined them.

Upon making the camp for that evening, Talia and Lane discussed the fading of Heather’s movie crew, and some other mysterious happenings, that they ascribe to Blair Witch. Right after hearing noises in the evening, the crowd was awakened to discover odd stick figures that hung in the trees. Scared, they choose to leave. Lisa spotted twine in the backpack of Lane and both Talia and Lane was gone after admitting to making the figures just to convince the crowd to go, provided that there were strange noises in the night and they awakened at 2pm.

After hours of strolling, the four go back to the original campsite that both were gone in circles. Lisa directed a drone to get their location, but it failed. Ashley became sick because of the lesions on her foot, obliging the crowd to camp again. Then Peter inspected Ashley’s swollen foot, he spotted a parasite inside the foot, but did not mention it to Ashley. Peter left the campsite for some firewood, soon being hunted by unknown object; he gets injured from the falling tree on him, and disappeared.


The Writers’ View:

When you read the previews for this movie, it seemed that the story sticks with the first edition. The initial sequels from the early 2000’s were bad and that made me decide to watch this movie without any doubts, but I was wrong. This film was sticking from the roots of total isolation and limited budget, which made the initial movie such a great one. Both this new Blair Witch and the original one have their unique sensible feeling of total isolation and that makes the movie instantly creepy. There are three things that make this horror movie a perfect one: build-up/anticipation, total isolation and helplessness. Despite the viewers cheering for Heather or Lisa in the two films to finally find their way to be out from the woods, it is really hopeless and makes true sense that all who dare alone from a small crowd into the forest of Black hills will surely not make it out breathing!

The Writers’ View:

It is overwhelming to know that this time, culture clash exists. The movie is a pitch ideal pastiche of the late 60s, and early 70s exploitation films. A cleaver assessment of changing manner towards male-female desires, sexual relations, and gender politics from the vantage point of 50 years on by the female director with the clear obsession and affection for genre and the deep wisdom of the source item. Visually, the feel and look of the era’s approach of the movie were recreated perfectly. The intentional and occasional glimpses of the present vehicles parked on the streets, and the personalities talking over the phones were intended to shiver the viewer from the particular delusion. Maybe, this was a fund cleverly constraint by Biller to the film’s advantage, as the self-reflexive instances like these seemed to work as the cue of the cultural style and the artifice of cinema.

The Writers’ View:

The movie seemed cool and its’ franchise seemed evolving to what the viewers want. The first Purge was not that amazing but, somehow, you would still want to see the flow of the ideas. So, after watching the first one, you can feel that the public demand is to make another one, but this time, make it better and bigger and a lot more wonderful. Then, when this edition came out on the national scale, they exactly give what is being expected from them. The movie is more on the political side which is pretty topical and the Purge contract has always carry the politics on its’ sleeve, and someone has to accept what is going into it. The Purge together the intriguing concept on it gathered altogether the thrill of horror films where the threats were actual people and not just ghosts.

The Story Line:

The mainstream of the tales is around the Forest of Aokigahara, it is a forest in the Mount Fuji in Japan at the northwest bottom, which is really famous for people that want to commit suicide. The American woman, Sara Price take a phone call coming from a Japanese police and telling her that they supposed her twin sister Jess, who seemed troubled is dead, because she was seen on her way to the Aokigahara forest. In spite of the fear of Rob, she fiancé, she insisted on going to Japan and arrived at the hotel that her sister stayed.

At the hotel, Sara meet-up with Aiden, the reporter. They mutually drink, and she told him about her parents’ passing away because of driving drunk and got into an accident, which her sister saw, but she did not. Aiden invited her to go into the forest together with Michi, a park guide, and him so she can search for her sister. When the three goes in the Aokigahara, Michi told Sara that Jess also has most likely slay herself. Sara rejects to believe this; clearing how being her twin she can sense that Jess is not dead. Deep in the forests, the crowd locates the yellow tent that Sara identifies as Jess’s. When the evening is nearly approaching, Michi suggested that they must leave a memo for Jess and then leave. Sara rejected the idea, and Aiden volunteered on staying with her throughout the night.

That evening, Sara perceived some rustling in the greenery, and considering that it can be Jess, hurried into the forests after her. Sara locates Hoshiko, the Japanese girl, who claimed that she know Jess. Hoshiko warned Sara not to fully trust Aiden and run away at the echo of his voice. Sara tries to run after her, but fell down and loses her. The following day, Sara and Aiden became lost and started to walk in the woods. When they are walking, Sara’s doubts were rising and demanded Aiden to hand back her his phone and will look for a photo of Jess on the phone. Aiden rejected any concerns with Jess, but Sara goes into the woods alone. While moving she started to perceive voices that told her to turn her back. She seemed to be unfazed with this until she overhears the voice straight behind her. She turned around to witness a hang remains, and goes on running away. She fell into the underground cave and went on unconscious, later she woke up and find out that she is inside the cave together with Hoshiko, who happened to be Yūrei. Hoshiko then happens to what seemed to be a “devil figure”. Sara then rushes in the opposite way to what seems to be Aiden. Aiden locates her and assisted her out from the cave, together with some persuasiveness, they go on walking together.


The Writers’ View:

The Forest is a little bit efficient in making atmosphere, particularly during the late evening and early morning scenario when the woods became less a compilation of trees, leaves and branches, and more of the abstract maze. The movie issue is originated in the screenplay, and for the character dealings and the set-up to be at once successful, or at least harmonious, they needed to be developed equally. Originally, the screenwriter trio made this right by providing Sara sufficient time just before she goes to the forest to permit her personality to unlock to get to know by the viewers. We get to be acquainted with and her sister’s background after she encountered Aiden and the audience takes a hold with their characters nicely.

After some years, Francisca’s father died also, but she conserved the body. She encountered a Japanese student, Kimiko, in a bar.

Just like Charlie, Lucy’s vocal cords and eyes were taken out by Francisca on screen through a surgery.


The Writers’ View:

It dares the belief that most movie makers may make dozens of movies throughout their profession, garnering skills the whole time, and never create a movie half as good as this one. Then somebody that just came and new in the industry and tries his very first attempt and then give us a masterpiece. Nicolas Pesce on his directing and writing debut showed the masterful control and true class of his story. Each scene is wonderfully laid out and appearing his own way. The film is a truly work of a master of art and not a novice.

One of the many things you will love in this film is that it never insults their viewers. The first 2/3’s of the movie were so strong that it is almost expected to be down by the concluding third. It seemed that movies struggle be constantly good and even better throughout, but normally ended mucking up at a portion of the story. The modern horror movie tends to rely heavily on jump fright. But this movie makes their final third strongest of all. There is no single jump scares in the movie and yet, it is absolutely scary and memorable of up to 99% of the total horror movies being now.

Jong-goo makes his way into the house of the stranger with an anger priest, but discovered that the pictures and the evidence have been blazed. Furious, he smashed out the stranger’s worship room and then murdered the dog when it comes to him, ordering the outsider to leave their village.


The Writers’ View:

The director, battles on finding a good tonal balance. During those times of pitch perfect and during the other moments all over the spot, the tone battles on being consistent. For the primary third of the movie, it is initially a funny film with brief bursts of violence and depravity. The comedy worked so well and the viewers are laughing many times. Then when a terrible imagery came up it was just sudden and so effective. There was the natural balance here, but it seemed lost with the next act. The comedy became slapstick and it did not fit in the rest of the movie. The artists became on-the-top and their acting is somewhat not on the ways expected from them and really different from their introduction.

When she saw the tied bell at the ankle of the dead body, Tommy explained to her that, formerly, the bells were applied to give a signal if somebody was just in a comatose condition instead of them really dead. The police arrived with the strange body and told Tommy that he needed the COD or cause of death report the next morning. Austin decided to assist his father instead of going out with Emma going to the theater, but he still asked her to come back after hours. Since the body’s identification is still unknown and the fingerprints were not on the records of the police, they refer the dead as Jane Doe. Tommy and Austin began with the autopsy through the external inspection of the corpse. They noticed that there were no visible signs of scars or marks and trauma. They found out that her eyes were cloudy, and this only happens when the bodies were already dead for a couple of days, but still the corpse appears fresh. Her ankle bones and wrist were shattered having no outward signs of injury and the tongue has been removed non-surgically.

 The Writers’ View:

The film was a lighthearted movie. It is a father and a son mortician type of movie. The director wonderfully succeeded in the initial creation of a comfortable environment, together with the little casting of characters and the setting of scenarios, and then masterfully began upping the discomfort heights of the situation, until the moment came that you are finally sitting on the boundary of your seat, and biting your nails at the same time. Like in the former movies of Øvredal’s, which describe as what you can’t see may be a million periods more disturbing than what is seen with our plain sight, but here he applied it both; the great atmosphere, great characters, and an overall impressive experience.

They already get in the water and Nancy was late to warn them to be away from the water and they were also killed by the white shark.


The Writers’ View:

At first, you will not be aware about what to expect from this film since it became so hard to take seriously some movie sharks. The Shallows however, is the best shark film for me ever since the Jaws and honestly speaking, it is the best image feature in ages!

In only 85 minutes, the film gives their most and provided a tension, stress, gripping, inducing film that will continue keep you from the edge of where you are seated. Blake Lively here is definitely on her way to the stardom, as she carried the whole movie and was able to perform well without the need to speak, and that is totally insane and hard to do for some that is not so good enough. In this movie, you will surely care about her and you will also want her character here to survive. This film is so smart and the movie director is deserving of all the credits we can give in creating this film as one of the best. Honestly speaking, this movie made it a well done classic in this genre.

She habitually calls Sandy, her sister, who was telling her that her rude ex-husband Cole was trying to discover where she really is. Malcolm stopped over to give the groceries, and Greta discovered then that the actual Brahms was murdered 20 years ago through a fire during his 8th birthday. Greta then accepted Malcolm’s proposal to show the town to her and ignored the rules again, and prepared herself for the date. But, she was attracted by an odd noise in the attic and then locked up.

Malcolm locates where she was and they briefly talked about the actual Brahms. Weird things started to happen like phone calls that were cut off, a child’s sob that is being heard at the hallways, and the doll that seemed to move personally, and vanishing and reappears elsewhere inside the house. After taking a phone call wherein the child’s voice insists over her to go over the rules, Greta locked herself inside the room.


The Writers’ View:

The movie is a kind that was set from a sequel, but the rest of the film was beautifully paced and stylized, it is a suspenseful and troubling ’60’s British created thrills with an added surprise finale and faster pace. From the start, Cohan rarely makes bad decisions with movie choices like this because she makes it really believable, like what she does with the other horror movies. This film was written, acted and photographed maturely, reminding everyone of a real Twilight Zone chapter that slowly unfolds and revealed the layers of mysteries within the movie. There were still more questions that will be answered as the film progresses through the end that will permits the viewer to fill in their imagination.
