August 2015 Thrillers


The Gift is getting great reviews and seems creepy in a good way. I’m sad about Dark Places not looking better since I loved the book, but the movie seems like it is missing something. I’m not sure about the love triangle in Z for Zachariah, but if everyone else is dead, I guess it might happen. Regression seems cheesy except it has Emma Watson in it so I’m intrigued. I was laughing at the trailer Cop Car, even though it is not a comedy. Amnesiac looks incredibly stupid and Return to Sender makes me a bit ill while watching the trailer.
