I've seen session 9, very strange movie, quite slow for me but still interesting, i like my horror to be a bit more engaging like Insidious for example.
Saw Hansel & Gretel: Witchhunters last night, not too bad if you disengage your brain for 90 minutes and like the idea of Jeremy Renner using a medievel machine gun.
Was it very strange for you? It wasn't so much for me as I've seen some really strange movies - The Stalker (Russian version) for instance, couldn't be stranger. And there's many more. In this movie however, I knew what was going on though it wasn't very easy subject to understand and the direction kept it unclear throughout the movie. I am perfectly fine with slow movies and in fact, I adore it as I like it how a good plot slowly builds up the tension and takes a supreme height towards the end.
I thought it was a very good movie given the premise and atmosphere but I still had a couple of problems - first of all, I thought Gordon's relationship problems were never told in the true sense, so I could never relate to his problems in order to feel sorry for him; second, there was no detail between the possessor and the possessed, so it pretty much left with a lot to be desired. The entity's true intention was never clear nor was it showed as to how it influences a human being. It does say towards the end it seeks, "wounded and weak" but that wasn't good enough for me. Still, I thought it was very intelligently done and was never purposely overblown. It's definitely not your typical mainstream horror flick. I don't care about those but it did end slightly abruptly.
I remember a movie where the drive to the airport alone was 15 minutes long. Talk about slow but the movie was so great that along with the protagonist, you too tend to think and get lost in your thoughts as it was that thought provoking.
