Midsummer Considered one of the best horror films of this year. Guardian, Salon, Roger Ebert, Time Out gave it a perfect score, and Looper called it the scariest movie of the year. In the film, female student Dani Ardor (played by Florence Pugh) suffers after a family tragedy. The incident made her relationship with her boyfriend Christian (Jack Reynor) even colder. Dani also has psychological instability. The following summer, Dani learned that her lover and friends were going to Sweden for the Midsummer festival in the isolated community of Hårga. She wants to come along and Christian agrees so they can mend their relationship. Here, the duo meets Pelle (Vilhelm Blomgren) – who invites the group to – along with some other guests. The trip was peaceful at first, but then a turning point occurred.
Midsommar is also a rare film where the horror scene almost takes place in daylight, even under the bright summer sun. Community members appear with holy white robes, gentle facial expressions and absolute belief in what they do. Evil does not come from social resistance or momentary greed but from folklore. Each of the bizarre customs in the film has its roots in Norse legend or history but is viewed as extreme in modern times. Violence is even more terrifying when the perpetrator is indifferent or takes it for granted.
The curse of la llorona
Possessing a certain connection to The Conjuring Horror Universe, “The Curse of La Llorona” many times make the viewers heart palpitations. La Llorona is a Mexican folklore about a woman who mourns regret after drowning her biological child. Cursed to wander in search of children to replace her, she went to capture children in the underworld. However, the result is always death for the children. In the film, a social security worker named Anna (Linda Cardellini) is struggling with a single mother life with her two children Samantha (Jaynee-Lynne Kinchen) and Chris (Roman Christou) after her husband’s death. A longtime subject of Anna’s now causes trouble by imprisoning her own children and insists that a witch is looking for them. Disobeying the poor mother, the police and Anna isolated the two children, only to witness their bodies being retrieved from the river.
Throughout the work are funeral rites, images of charms, and the evil La Llorona, originally from the Central American country. That helps pique the curiosity of audiences who are already familiar with the American type of ghost movies or supernatural forces. The highlight of the culture of the Latin American nation lies in the character of the exorcist Rafael (Raymond Cruz). Entering his house, the audience has the opportunity to admire a series of strange objects and tools that have never been seen in American horror films. Even his way of exorcising demons was very different from the traditions of the Western church. Rafael uses La Llorona’s own power to confront her, ready to use living people as bait, and accompanied by many new tools such as a cross from a fire tree, a salt pot to bless water… Finally, the film also installs a small detail, helping The Curse of La Llorona have a connection to the Annabelle series in particular, and The Conjuring horror universe in general.
The movie is about an 11-year-old boy Eli (Charlie Shortwell) has a rare disease called an autoimmune disease (autoimmune disease), which is “allergic to the whole world”. He receives an experimental treatment in an isolation clinic of Dr. Isabella Horn (Lili Taylor), from which he encounters extremely bizarre experiences. Then, he realizes that the house he lives in is not as safe as he thought and the doctors at the clinic seem to be hiding something. In addition, the film also has the participation of Kelly Reily – the actress who plays the inconvenient-spoil-identity character who holds the key to the final twist. She used to “haunt” the audience for a long time with her role in Eden Lake.
Like other recent Netflix horror movies such as In the Shadow of the Moon or In the Tall Grass, the content only stops at “” safe”, which is quite complete and “just enough” to satisfy the audience, but has not really created a shocking explosion. However, please rest assured to choose Eli, because this movie may not make you “shocked” and still have to freeze for a few seconds. When the “devil’s day” Halloween is gradually approaching, it will be a real regret if you miss a great movie like Eli!
Happy Death Day 2
Perhaps, audiences will feel both pity, but at the same time extremely excited to continue to see the scene where Tree (played by Jessica Rothe) continues to be stuck on her birthday. Poor thing is that after 11 times of “dead and alive again”, she suddenly woke up on a quite beautiful day, with a familiar perspective directed at the boy who was crouched looking for something in a stuck corner, and that’s when she knew her life was truly “as the rumors say”. However, this time it will not be so easy when next to the killer who is always waiting everywhere, there is another much more serious problem. As mentioned in the trailers, some scientific quantum machine is the source of more or less impact on the timeline, leading to Tree being trapped in a… different, easier to understand dimension. was another life, which gave her some things, but also took away from her important things. So the blonde girl in the familiar short-sleeved raglan shirt now has a new task, which is to find a way to use the machine to turn everything back to normal, at least before the killer appears. , killing everyone and taking her life.
In general, the plot of Happy Death Day 2U is not too exaggerated when it is logically built, because the source of the whole matter has been expected by countless fans since the end of part 1. It will be a bit confusing when too much physiological and chemical knowledge runs across the film, but in return the humorous elements of this comeback are more than doubled. This will be an endless party of gore, punches and endless laughs, which will have you holding onto the chair frame as we wait for our Tree girl to do the job.
