MovieStudio Quote >> “Starts off easy and ends in confusions. Mark Strong delivers a perfect mind reader.”

A man with the power to guide people back into their memories seeks to determine whether a troubled teenage girl is a cunning sociopath, or the anguished victim of repressed suffering in this mind-bending psychological thriller. John (Mark Strong) has a unique gift for exploring other people’s memories — a talent that he used to assist in police investigations until the day he suffered a stroke during a particularly intense session.

Anna

He’s never been the same since, and after his wife dies, John is left destitute and alone. Later, when John happens across the unusual case of Anna (Taissa Farmiga), the highly intelligent scion of a wealthy family who is currently staging a hunger strike, he senses an opportunity to once again use his powers for good.

Anna

Now the deeper John probes into Anna’s mystery-shrouded past, however, the more he begins to suspect that she’s a master manipulator, and that she could be guiding him down a very dangerous path. The movie is also called ‘Mindscape’ in some countries.

MovieStudio Quote >> “John Jarratt doesn’t make this look like a sequel. Bloody gores and a neat script.”

Outback serial killer Mick Taylor (John Jarratt) returns to torment another group of unsuspecting tourists in this sequel from original Wolf Creek director Greg McLean.

Now, the nightmare is bearing down on them in Paul’s rearview mirror, and deep in the outback, there is no place to hide.

“The movie sucks big time, all the way confusing and a very bad script”

A notorious serial killer uses his dying breath to place a deadly curse on a small town in this shocker from legendary horror director Wes Craven (Scream, A Nightmare on Elm Street). It’s been 16 years since the maniac who terrorized Riverton met his grim demise. Seven children were born on the night he died, and he vowed that he would return one day to claim them all. Like clockwork, exactly 16 years later, the children born that fateful night begin vanishing without a trace. Could the killer have somehow cheated death the night that everyone thought he was killed, or has he perhaps been reincarnated as one of seven teens he swore to kill? Only one person knows the answer to that burning question.

My Soul to Take

Adam “Bug” Heller (Max Thieriot) never knew how close he came to death the night his father went on that bloody rampage, and despite remaining completely unaware of the atrocities that mar his family bloodline, he’s suffered terrifying nightmares from as far back as he can remember. Now, in order to save his friends, Bug will be forced to confront the evil that won’t stop until it accomplishes the awful task it set out to complete on the night he was born.
