So it was tonight.
"From Within" 2008, rash of suicides in a very Christian community, add a little magic or spells or well, I did hear the word 'curse' bandied about. Seemed like it had potential. Was it really a curse or were people just thinking that - it was just inside their heads, not really real? Well, I had to find out.
The movie is 89 minutes long and I knew I had to be getting near the end because I had been watching it for sooooo long. I paused it to see how much time I had left, figuring it to be about 15 minutes. I had only been watching for 45 minutes! I still had 45 more minutes to go. I'd already seen about 6 people kill themselves without much variation in the plot line... Yes, I use the term 'plot line' very loosely. I wasn't sure I could take much more - have I used the word 'tedious' yet? But I did want to see how it ended.
So for the last 45 minutes, I checked my email, FaceBook, and played a few games of Candy Crush. That definitely made it easier to watch. Then at the end where they were going to tie it all together, there at the end of the pier with the girl and the 2 love interests and the guns and the magic book and the spooky double that makes you commit suicide, I realized that I had seen this movie before and that it was crappy and that the attempt to tie it all together was very lame. Actually, the best part of the movie was after I had been watching it for about 10 minutes, my husband came home and I paused the movie so we could watch an episode of Breaking Bad (season 3.) and no, that's not why the movie seemed soooo long. It seemed long because it was incredibly boring.
Out of 5 stars - I'd give this 1. It wasn't even so bad that it was good. It was just bad. 👎👎👎👎
