Just don't watch Cabin Fever 2. Not a high point in Mr. West's career.

I loved Cabin Fever and I loved The Innkeepers. I might give it a try anyway. You're probably right as most sequels do suck.

Cabin Fever 2 was great I enjoyed it more than the original. I don't get all the hate for it tbh.

^^ Shutter was great, one of the best in 00s; Vinyan was ok but yeah...Kill List is a 'major bullshit'. :)

Apartment 143 (2011)



Nothing new but there are few decent set pieces with a creepy but funny ending. Pretty average time killer; not too bad either.

A Gun for George: Quality short film from Matt Holness (Garth Marenghi's Dark Place). Dark comedy about a frustrated author of pulp fiction, dreaming of living life like the character in his book... The Reprisalizer. Well worth a watch, a beautiful pastiche of the 70s/80s vigilante genre.

It was boring & frustrating. When you made a film with horror/thriller elements at some part(s) then it's better to create the atmosphere or background for it. Most of the part it was like a boring Britt family/buddy drama; it was like they were bit reluctant to deal with the HORROR, so they failed to pinch it into the story properly, IMO. Fuck the spoiler, the thing is the "horror" part comes as a surprise package at the end and it didn't surprise me at all but instead it very much pissed me off. Cause, the main idea was actually nice & it easily could worked far more interestingly if they could come with a better approach to build & reveal the things in a simple but effective storyline. Overall, a pathetic time waster. I hated it.

This was surprisingly funny and really good. Channing Tatum should do more comedies and stop dancing and doing chick flicks.
