The Sky Has Fallen (2009): A Macabre review.

The Sky Has FallenStarring Carey MacLaren, Laurel Kemper

Directed by Doug Roos

In a world where reboots and remakes are popping up like weeds, it’s nice to go to an alternative that tries its best to be something original. In this case, I’m talking about the 2009 horror The Sky Has Fallen. Its been a while since I watched something with a post-apocalyptic aspect (no, I haven’t seen the latest Mad Max yet, I’ll get around to it in time), and the director Doug Roos was kind enough to hook me up with a look at his endeavor, so thanks go out to him.

As Above, So Below (2014): A Macabre Review.

As Above, So BelowStarring Perdita Weeks, Ben Feldman, Edwin Hodge

Directed by John Erick Dowdle

Hello once again. After some consideration as to what I should review next, I thought maybe it’s time I delved back into the world of found footage.  But I didn’t want to review any old FF flick that I came across, which is why I chose As Above, So Below. Though I almost never trust trailers, the trailer for this particular flick did grab my attention, and so it made sense to me to take the plunge and see what came of it.  As Above, So Below is directed by John Erick Dowdle, who was involved in the making of such horror films as Quarantine, Quarantine 2 (as a writer), and Devil. With those movies under his bet, my optimism was somewhat raised.  Add to that the fact that the majority of the film was actually filmed in the Paris catacombs (which was apparently a first for any film crew) and it became a must watch for me.  But enough delay, let’s get into it.
