And Soon The Darkness (Blu-ray) – In And Soon The Darkness Stephanie (Amber Heard) and Ellie’s (Odette Yustman) vacation to an exotic village in Argentina is a perfect ‘girl’s getaway’ to bask in the sun, shop and flirt with the handsome locals. After a long night of bar-hopping, the girls get into an argument, and Stephanie heads out alone in the morning to cool off. But when she returns, Ellie has disappeared. Finding signs of a struggle, Stephanie fears the worst, and turns to the police for help. But the local authorities have their hands full already – with a string of unsolved kidnappings targeting young female tourists. Skeptical of the sheriff’s competency, she enlists help from Michael (Karl Urban), an American ex-pat staying at their hotel. Together they go on a frantic search for Ellie, but Stephanie soon realizes that trusting his seemingly good intentions may drag her farther from the truth. With danger mounting, and time running out, Stephanie must find her friend before darkness falls.

Reason Why – For those who missed out the first time around The Blair Witch Project was a phenomenon. Taking the internet by storm was the is-it-real story of three amateur student filmmakers who investigate the legend of the Blair witch. After interviewing some of the townspeople about the legend the take off into the woods to investigate further. There they find that the woods can be creepy themselves with mysterious happenings, sticks and rocks piling up into haunting formations. The three soon find themselves hopelessly lost and even using a compass the woods seems intent on not allowing them escape.
Does it hold up – Yes and no. Yes, it can still scare given the right moment in viewing it, but it is not the movie it was back when it was new. Time has hurt the film somewhat.

As usual click the picture to read my review @ Movie-Vault.com
Open Water is like a modern day Jaws, though it’s true story is less exciting and yet more horrific in it’s own way. The fact that the actors were in the ocean with REAL sharks puts a sense of creepiness in the film that can make your hair stand on end. The two main actors are good, but not great. Given that this was a cheap budgeted movie that’s OK. This film will make you never want to scuba dive again. I’m cool with that since Jaws made me avoid the ocean at all costs. Laugh if you will but at least I’ll be whole while you’re picking up your leg out of the sharks mouth. 🙂
