This is absolutely one of the best book-to-movie adaptations of a Clive Barker story (short story) that I have seen. I loved it. As a written story on the page, it is dark and twisted and full of imagery that, sure, doesn't completely translate onto the screen, but it was a really good job, and I have seen this a couple of times so far, recommended it to others (who all enjoyed it), and own it.

Ok I was always intrigued by this movie, not because it has a funny name but because it looked cool. It turned out to be one of those movies that just dissapoints you in every way. It was going great and it easily had a 6 rating, then it just alllllll fell apart fast. Just had too much going on in little time. Bradley Cooper who was actual good, but just became terrible during the end. Its like h... read more

Brilliantly made, amazingly realistic special effects, and you keep on wonder the same thing... Why doesn't the killer ever talk, and when you find out, you'll be so engulfed, you won't be able to take your eyes off the screen!

Description: Next stop…death. When Leon Kaufman’s (Bradley Cooper) latest body of work – a collection of provocative, nighttime studies of the city and its inhabitants -- earns the struggling photographer interest from prominent art gallerist Susan Hoff (Brooke Shields), she propels him to get grittier and show the darker side of humanity for his upcoming debut at her downtown art space. Believing he’s finally on track for success, Leon’s obsessive pursuit of dark subject matter leads him into the path of a serial killer, Mahogany (Vinnie Jones), the subway murderer who stalks late-night commuters -- ultimately butchering them in t ...

Terror Blurbs! Part II (An Ever-Expanding List) (80 movies items)

"Plot: A photographer pursues a dangerous path in a bid to legitimize his art only to uncover a brutal conspiracy. A blood-soaked nightmare that starts like a morbid mystery begging to be unraveled and ends up in bleak, psuedo-Lovecraftian territory. Based on the Clive Barker story of the same name, the film honors the story while expounding upon it in very effective ways. Themes of obsession, fate, and pushing beyond the established boundaries of our world to find the unimaginable will delight"

Film Journal 2015 (112 movies items)

" On one hand, this wasn't as good as say, Nightbreed or Hellraiser (other Clive Barker-inspired films). There was nothing wrong with it, but it just wasn't as...unpredictable? Again, perfectly enjoyable. Just not the best. Jeez, I'm so convincing. :/"

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: April (28 movies items)

"First viewing - April 1st I've been meaning to see this for a while, so naturally I watched it the first night it hit Netflix. I'd forgotten that Bradley Cooper was in it, but then all the marketing material was based around Vinnie Jones instead so that may not be too surprising. And to be fair, Jones gives a powerful performance throughout the run time (though I admit I kept thinking of Snatch which was mildly distracting). The story is occasionally predictable and there are some awful CG effe"

" LAST WATCHED: 4/14/2017This movie was much better than I was expecting it to be. I was expecting low-grade, senseless gore, but it wasn't that at all. Some of the camera angles were interesting and unique (the first-person viewpoint of the guy hanging upside down right as the murderer slits his throat and the blood starts flowing). My only real criticism is regarding the many blood splatters and how often they defied the laws of gravity."
