Surpasses Annabelle, The Puppet Master, and The Boy by a Longshot!!!

So this is one of the first doll films I've ever seen and boy it was scary fun! It gets mystery from The Ring and a curse like Ju-On and I believed inspired some of the soundtrack from Jigsaw. It also feels like a M. Night Shamylan film. Basically a couple get a box with a doll named Billy in it and after a little the wife dies. Then from there he tries to find the original of the doll, every step he takes a utter scare for the audience. I honestly don't get why people hate this film. There is some crappy graphics at one point in the film but what I say is it's not always about the visuals but the story. There aren't much jump scares and is a little over rated but if they made a sequel to this masterpiece I would go out in the theaters and buy a ticket. I guess the only thing I didn't like was the lack of richness in characters but what am I to say? So James Wan is my favorite person in the film industry, starting off The Conjuring, Insidious, Saw,and so much more horror films. If Wan didn't get on in this film this film would be worse than the Texas Chainsaw Massacre 4.

Editorial of Cheap Thrills

Movie Review: "Dead Silence" (2006)

After the immense success of a low-budget short-film-turns-feature production "Saw" (2004), director James Wan gets the engagement with Universal Studios to realize his follow-up picture, again written together with fellow Leigh Whannell. The screenplay concerns a female ventriloquist in a U.S. small town who gets marked on stage in front of a major audience by a boyish audience member in the 1930s, who then disappears to forge a curse that will haunt a family of main character Jamie Ashen, performed uneventful, no memorable-beat-given by miscast leading actor Ryan Kwanten. Director James Wan creates some decent shots of ambiance horrors with cinematographer John R. Leonetti, which then gets completely disarranged by editor Michael N. Knue in an editorial that just does not want to balance itself; too pretentious seem the super-imposing, double-layering, fast-zoom push-ins and repetitious slow eyeball-pull outs that not one scene seems to interconnect with the next. Nevertheless the talent of the director, who made fair use of his promotional-raised production budget from 1, at the "Saw" production in Season 2003/2004, to 20 Million U.S. Dollar with Universial Pictures in Season 2005/2006, lets unmistakably underline the fact that the filmmaking Horror genre also needs a director's final cut decision-making to maintain the intended suspense-screw-driving to maximize high-tension shocker effects.

Achmed, The Dead Terrorist, Would Be Ashamed

If not for the incredible cinematography and final moments, the dead would've been completely silenced.

Where to begin? Well, the beginning is a good place to start as the first half is enjoyable, including the wham-bam awesome opening. But, sadly, from the climatic intro, the movie progressively gets worse.

It seems this movie could've been served a few more drafts and expanded on ideas. Not to mention a slightly bigger budget because when the CGI hits the fan, it's just that: sh|t.

Sookie's brother takes on Chucky's cousin while its owner, Freddy, gets revenge. That's the gist, and there's not much more.

Sadly, as much as I loved Ryan Kwanten in the secondary role in True Blood, he CANNOT carry a full movie. He is perfect in a secondary role. And Donnie "not the real" Wahlberg can't either. Neither can his sidekick electric razor.

Again, with such a well shot movie and effective, albeit Sooo-Saw, finale, it's too bad this isn't a recommendation. It totally wasted some charming puppets to terrorize us.


Final thoughts: …But, I had to give it a shot. I am, after all, beginning my Sawathon tomorrow: I'm watching all original seven Saw films leading up to the latest and eightest chapter. If it's Halloween, it must be seen.

I think that's how I saw that.
