31 Days of Halloween Day 3- the last Exorcism 

THe last exorcism is exactly how you dont make a horror sequel. this is also why people tend to disrespect and hate the sequels of horror films. This is a shame since the first was so fun and a fairly good movie. This film should be grea. It is produced by Eli Roth who is a horror phenom and cult god, the screen play was wrote by Damian Chezal who won an oscar for Whiplash last year, so why does this fail ?

The premise of this second installment of The Last Exorcism  picks up immitetly after the first where nell, the young girl possesed and impregnated by a demon in the first film. Nell is found in a families house acting crazy and degranged after escaping the cult. She is sent to a house for girls and seems to start doing better. She sees strange men in masks, a silver guy painted who creeps her out, and voices over the radio. This is about all the movie is. Nell going through New Orleans seeing shades of demons,ghosts, and cult members. It is a lazy attempt at horror and a qucick buck at the expense of the first  film. The ending is an abomination and just craps all ov er the original by having dumb cgi scares and turning  into a bad carrie remake.. My recomendation i sn ot to  watch this. I would give it a 3-10.

31 days of Halloween day 2-Grave Encounters

Grave encounters is a B list horror flick about a group of ghost hunters who explore an abandoned sanitarium.
The film starts off with a producer saying that all the footage is not doctored this is real. Like all found footage flicks
The movie has a group TV show called grave encounters. They go to an insane asylum, it looks nothing will happen until shit hits the fan.
Grave encounters has some awesome ideas it just needs to execute them better. I love the parts where time is nonexistent and wings, doors, rooms, and areas of the building appear and disappear at will.
This actually reminds me of one of my favorite and most disturbing books I have ever read, House of leaves by, Mark Z Danielski.
Besides the few parts with a good spoke or creative scene in the film deserves a 4/10.
