88 minutes (2007) – review

DVB – italian audio track

Long story short: nine years ago, a serial killer was imprisoned; now, a new murder happens with the same modus operandi…

Last night I was still awake (as many other nights) so I decided to watch TV, and stumbled upon this movie; it was passed under my radar at the time…

Well, a very good, psychological thriller with a perfect Al Pacino fitting the main character really well, supported by a lot of other good actors; story is good, even if a bit forced, and the end was uxepected (strangely, to me at least, where I almost always spot the guilty in the first half time of the movie…)

Music is good, locations in Seattle are convincing, and the whole lot works very well; reccomended to any thriller fan, in particular to the ones who love machiavellian movies!

My vote: 7.5/10

The Returned (2013) – review

WEBdl – english audio track

Long story short: the infected survivals of a zombie outbreak are finishing their cure to be normal

A simple story that turns to be not the usual zombie movie – run, hyde, survive – but more a drama and a thriller. And, even if I must admit (and you know it) that I LOVE zombie movies, I like this one as well, maybe just because it’s different.

Acting is very good, SFX are sparse but good as well; music is interesting as locations. The final twist was unexpected – not by me, but… oh well, after what? 10.000 movies seen, “maybe” it is becaming quite difficult to surprise me.

So, if you like zombies, but also thriller, and you have not watched thousand movies – yet – this is definitely a film to watch!

My vote: 8/10
