Recovery. It gets started a bit slow, but overall, it's decent for a slasher. The nearly all female cast was a nice change of pace and it certainly picked up steam over the last 30 minutes, because the big reveal comes at least a bit earlier than usual. On the other hand, the red herring is pretty obvious from the get go and you don't get anything all that memorable.

I do wonder why that final scene was tacked on, because it did not seem to anything other than options for interpretation. Would it have been too much of a downer without?

American Gospel (2018) (Netflix Documentary)
7/10

Documentary critiques the 'prosperity gospel' ('The Secret', 'Name it Claim it', Benny Hinn, Joel Osteen), (a philosophy that God rewards those who live faithful lives with material wealth), and how many Prosperity leaders have exploited their followers; and details how this is not correct christian teaching, improperly scriptural.

I like how the documentary jumps right into it, well paced, sufficiently wide in scope, clarity and understandable. In can be watched in piecemeal (sections at a time). To critique, with a 2hr 15min runtime, I think the second hour loses cohesiveness and punch, as it moves into some extemporaneous material (like the Ray Comfort street evangelism), and includes too much secondary interview material not directly core to the theme.

The Mirror

Decent British flick about a possessed/haunted mirror. I recommend it.

Hunter's Moon, 2020. 5/10

Director: Michael Caissie

Thumb resize.

It had Thomas Jane in this but his minimal screen time couldn't even save this.

Daniel Isn't Real was an enjoyable thriller. At the start, I thought it was going in a vein similar to Fight Club, but it soon becomes more than that. Maybe the best compliment to a thriller is when the tension is so good that most of the special effects look a bit silly. Or maybe it's the other way around.

I enjoyed the chemistry between the two main characters and both leads do a good job, with Schwarzenegger junior turning out to be a pleasant surprise (especially when his other Imdb-credits include scouts guide to the zombie apocalypse). Would like to see them in other decent thriller and horrors.

Also a mention for Sasha Lane. She reminded me a bit of Lisa Bonet's character in High Fidelity. Don't know if she was purposely chanelling her, just came to mind.

Watched the trailer. Looks interesting. I can see the Fight Club connection... if it took a horror turn.
