If there was ever a horror movie that could be called the cinematic equivalent of fast food, "Lights Out" would be a fat, juicy cheeseburger. You savor every delicious morsel as you consume it, but afterwards you're self conscious about what you just allowed into your body.
"23:59" has a strong first act, shrouding itself in mystery, a chillingly foreboding atmosphere and creepy scares. Unfortunately, its initial success only makes the rest of the movie suck that much harder. Even though I adore military themed horror flicks, this ghost-thriller is a casualty of war.
“V/H/S/2” mastered the formula of its predecessor, being incredibly well paced- a rarity for any anthology- and improved the quality of each individual short, while making sure the tone was consistent. It also helps that the film is pretty scary.
"Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones" is neither the best or the worst of the franchise and will probably be remembered as the most divisive. There is a lot of good and bad within it, but most viewers will probably latch onto the good or bad, making the movie seem much better or worse than it really is.
