But far better! Lol
You knew from the get go that Bad Ronald was within the walls. Not the case of Housebound/The Boy.
Regardless, The Pact was before Housebound.
I thought The Boy was far better than Housebound. Regardless of the much seen twist, the overall mood of The Boy beat the comedy aspects of Housebound.
I just watched this. I paid the $6 to rent it and felt I received my money's worth. The story was good and Lauren Cohan is absolutely gorgeous. What more could you ask for?
really liked this film and I enjoyed the twist as well
I did too. I must be in the minority, but for some reason, I never saw the twist ending coming. Loved the film and Lauren Cohan was very good. Amazing how good she is at playing an American.
We watched this last night and I didn't think it was bad at all. I liked the atmosphere of the house. I did find some things to be implausible but that's the nature of horror films I suppose.
Anyone know why the Bluray is so bloody expensive? $34.98 MSRP - the cheapest I can find online is DeepDiscount for $24. The only extra is an UltraViolet code. I suppose the price will drop in a few months but Universal isn't doing themselves any favors starting it at this price point.
Any supernatural horror movie has its fair share of implausibility from the get go - Isn't that right maybrick (cough... Evil Dead.. cough!)
I'm almost positive I saw it much cheaper in store at Walmart. The trade off is that you have to go to Walmart.
This thing gave me very pleasant Amicus flashbacks. Its was great. The ending I literally double taked and was like wuh-what? and I liked the final girl empowerment theme was not abandoned in the last reel.
Yeah..I think it was $19.99 for the Blu and $16.99 for the DVD at Walmart. I never buy newly released films right away. They always come down in price if you simply wait about 6 months. Walmart always lowers many of the latest releases over the past year or so for Black Friday sales. Hell, I don't think I paid more than between $7.88-9.88 for many Blu's by simply waiting awhile.
Although the film is well-done for what it is, it has a major problem to overcome.......
If you are in this situation where your dress and jewelry go missing, there are noises in the house and a doll keeps getting moved why do you FIRST believe the doll is possessed over thinking that there could be someone else in the house?
I hardly ever buy newly released films right away either. There is still a chain of video rental stores where I live called Family Video. I have no idea if they are nation wide or just a Midwest thing, but they always have copies of new releases on sale to buy. Plus the longer I wait, the cheaper the title gets. Usually I wait 6-8 months and I can get a blu-ray for $5. I just bought Crimson Peak for $7. I'll have to pick up The Boy when it gets cheap.
Yeah, I have a Family Video in town here. I've never gone into the store. I'll have to check it out sometime.
Caught this on amazon prime. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it. I had low expectations but I do wish I caught this on the big screen. Don't know if I'll go out and buy it anytime soon, but I think its worth your time if you haven't seen it yet. I think it's been mentioned before but the lead is absolutely breath takenly beautiful.
Okay, so remember that wave of Bad Ronald inspired "haunted house" movies circa 2012 - 2016? The Pact, Housebound, The Boy, Within, etc?
I figured they were all ripping off each other, but turns out they were ripping off a 2009 episode of Supernatural that I watched last night. 4x11 "Family Remains". Pretty cool little episode. The coolest part was it was filmed at a house I visited last fall in British Columbia. It's the same house from the infamous X-Files episode "Home". The second it popped up on screen, I was like "hey, I've been there!" I love when that happens.
