[7.00/10] The Shrine (2011)

The Shrine (2011)

QuickRating: This Canadian horror film may be incompetently-acted and lacking in production values, but its clever story is surrounded by a mystery that keeps you guessing until the unexpectedly satisfying twist ending, plus, it offers lots of creepy and tense moments, atmospheric visuals, a couple of good scares and characters you can relate to. "The Shrine" is not just a nice little cinematic surprise, but one true gem of a horror movie.

If the bad acting isn't a big distraction, I could deal with it.

Maynard Morrissey said...

ah, very excited about this.

George, have you seen director Knautz' previous movie "Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer"? If not, watch it! It's a wonderfully entertaining 80s-tribute horror-comedy with Robert Englund in one of his most hilarious roles! :)

Nebular said...

Alex, it's more like amateurish. I've seen much worse.

Nebular said...

Maynard, you should be - it's great!:)

Yep, I've seen it and absolutely enjoyed it. Loved the 80s old school vibe of it.

I'll have to check this out. And I love Robert Englund. He is one of my favorite people. He rocked Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer.

Nebular said...

Mel, I do too. He's fantastic. In fact, I enjoyed The Shrine even more than Jack Brooks.
