Oh the horror

Horror gets a bad rep from people ... and movies like this one are helping with that false narrative. Of course there are bad movies in every genre, but Horror seems to be affected most by it. And with comedy, which is a genre where you could argue it's also easy to make a movie fast and cheap, you have the safety net of "taste". Because humor is in the eye of the beholder, but quality isn't.

So while it would be tough to come up with something completely new, you should expect that something better can be done, even with a devil takes people (sacrifices made) and so forth. There is a tendency to try to give characters some depth. The actors just can't pull that weight. Not saying they get a great script and they mess it up, but still they could and should have been able to raise the bar. Acting ain't that easy ... making good movies neither

Interesting story, but mediocre and result...

When I found "The Chosen" I had no knowledge about it at all. I didn't know who starred in it or what it was about. I just happened to find it in the horror section. And being a horror fan I needed very little persuasion in order to pick it up and give it a go.

I must say that I found the story to be rather interesting. It was a good story concept and there were some rather twisted and disturbing elements to it, such as having to sacrifice your own family members in order for a single person to remain alive and having to pick out which ones to sacrifice. It should be said that the story was rather predictable, so don't expect any curve balls here.

The acting in the movie was adequate, although I wasn't familiar with anyone on the cast list. Which, in itself, is a plus for me, because I like watching new acting talents in movies.

For a horror movie that involved a hellish entity, then it was a movie that was rather scarce on special effects. Sure, there were special effects and CGI in the movie, just used in moderation. Which was a shame, because it felt like it held the movie back.

The movie was in overall adequate, but at times it felt a bit forced and rigid at times. Whether that was because of the director or the writers I do not know. But it was an enjoyable enough movie for what it turned out to be.

As for the ending of the movie, well it made very little sense to me, so I guess that whatever the writers were aiming at was lost on me.

All in all, "The Chosen" scores 5 out of 10 stars from me.

The movie needs work. A lot Of Work.

This movie really needs a lot of work. First of all I don't think anyone would sacrifice another family member to save another especially the grandmother that was absolutely innocent in this movie. I did appreciate that this was all in the name of religion and the danger of the religions. The most ridiculous part to this movie was that it was rushed and now I'm not saying the movie had to be long, but it definitely needed the story to marinate to build certain characters to seem like necessary people to get rid of in the first place. I think this movie needed to have better child actors/actresses and better theme placements. I really think the movie was just in a rush to get finished. Lilith also, comes from the Jewish mythology and not the Christianity Mythology, so I thought that was interesting as well. I did find it awkward that a nun was the writer of a demonic sealing book. I just wish the movie was not so strung out on religious beliefs, but instead stuck to the concept of being a horror movie.
