Pretty much every decade has had its share of bad movies. Only two years into this second decade of the 21st Century, and we’re already seeing one terrible film after another. The trailers for the following two horror flicks look like no exception, but one of them at least has me interested by its unique approach (certainly not for any originality in the story or plot).
I don’t know about everyone else, but this seriously sounds like the dumbest idea for a horror movie ever. Even though some creep sneak up behind you while using an ATM machine is a scary enough thought, sitting through 90-minutes of three numbskulls trapped inside a booth is not even remotely terrifying in my book. And who are these kids that park so far away from the machine in the first place? Who does that in the middle of the night? And why are they recycling the killer from ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’? Oh, and one final thing, I’m sick and tired of all these ridiculous excuses for cell phones conveniently not working.
A remake of a Latin-American movie, this low-budget horror flick has me interested primarily for being one single take. Or at least, it claims to be. Supposedly, there are no edits or cuts in the 88-minute runtime. However, with the use of digital cameras nowadays (on which this one was shot), filmmakers can do all sorts of visual tricks to make their movie look like a continuous long take. All we need is one moment in a very dark shadow or a sudden rapid jerking motion to the side, then splice the next scene right into it. Still, it’ll be interesting to watch and see if the filmmakers actually accomplish what they’re claiming.
