Alarmed full movie review - Very entertaining horror flick which combines horror elements from various other films too. All together. I very much enjoyed this.
Ghost Boat. At first I thought it a rip-off of Ghost Ship from 2002. But actually... it's not. I was positively intrigued to see this was a good film and not more cheap horror that keeps manifesting everyday.
As much as I want to spoil the hell out of this film because I want to encourage horror fans who are open-minded to watch this I just can't because I would personally HATE having the highlights of the film ruined. The...say... "Ohh no no no no" moments. Or the "Ohhh you gotta be kidding me. This is too mean " kinda moments.
Yea, guys. We got some good ones of those. The story is pretty much as is already highlighted so not point is explaining that. Now. The music is something you'll immediately notice. Its old school and it works really well. It may strike some of you as a little corny...but I personally took great liking to it.
Don't watch this to expect a huge masterpiece or something like The Grudge or stuff like that. This film...is the kind of horror you can watch on a casual day. Grin and laugh at MEANWHILST being freaked out in a tasteful way. Its not blood and gore amass. It is of course a few disturbing visuals but all in all. Its the anticipation for what happens that is the real "evil element" in this.
Keep that in mind if you wanna give it a shot. I personally am going to watch it again. Good film.
Other than that I'll highlight a few basic features about this: Nice character likability. (You wont hate the cast or stuff like that which I personally hate when happens. Acting is okay and I noticed that Lofgren "maybe unintentionally or not" placed heavy focus on faces here. It really helps when having to relate to the people in the film. It might just be me...but yea. )
It's its own thing: It truly is even though it has various features borrowed from Devil from 2010 or Ghost Ship 2002. It works okay in my opinion. I found it rather hilarious to be honest. The evil tech forcing you to do stuff. Satan in a boat. Whats not to love.
All in all its Fun, entertaining, bit scary and most importantly...doesn't disappoint in regard to anticipating horror elements.
And a F-ING great ending ! Totally hilarious. Priceless really. and I SOOO want to spoil it....SO BADLY...but I wont of course. Ill just ...leave you with a little hint: Dr. Feinstone would love to be of help *winks*
My GOD. Totally NOT a letdown at all.
Mr. Lofgren. Thank you ! To the entire cast... THANK YOU! Thanks to all for making a film like this.
Respectable replay value. Special in its own way. A solid 6 out of 10 which equals = A Good Film. Definitely above average.
Thats all I can say, fellas. Nice film. I recommend it to people who love a nice ordinary horror film with both horror as well as few entertaining moments.
