Think "Blair Witch" without the steady and careful camerawork.

Oooh, I found a good one. Well acted, well directed. B-horror without the pain of film shot with a 1980's VHS camcorder in the middle of an earthquake.

The Pact

It probably won't scare the pants off you, but it's a well made movie with enough twists and turns to keep you interested. I would say that writer/director Nicholas McCarthy has a bright future. The lead actress was great too and I thought Laurence Meade made a convincing serial killer.

You can probably find it in your local Redbox. It took me a week to find it in stock, so apparently I'm not the only one who enjoyed it.

Another winner in the B-horror genre tonight. The Possession was a fun one, not sure why it scored only 5.8 from IMDB. Starring Kyra Sedgewick and some dude who really reminded me of Howie Mandel for some reason.

Probably scarier if you have teenage girls, otherwise just an entertaining "evil kid" movie.

Thought that dude was a beefed up Robert Downey Jr. in "Watchmen".

It's not Halloween, but I just watched V/H/S2 and holy shit is it better than the first one. I think it's the only time i've said a sequel is better than the original. It has more gore than the first, but there are definitely holy fuck moments.
