    The Gift

    This movie looks to be slipping under the radar, however it is getting outstanding reviews and I know people who have actually seen it and said it was fantastic. Doesn't sound to be a true horror flick but from what I have heard it could certainly pass as one. I'm probably going to check this one out in the theater as it sounds really good.

    Simon and Robyn are a young married couple whose life is going just as planned until a chance encounter with an acquaintance from Simon's high school sends their world into a harrowing tailspin. Simon doesn't recognize Gordo at first, but after a series of uninvited encounters and mysterious gifts prove troubling, a horrifying secret from the past is uncovered after more than 20 years. As Robyn learns the unsettling truth about what happened between Simon and Gordo, she starts to question: how well do we really know the people closest to us, and are past bygones ever really bygones?

    I love this part of the review on JoBlo:

    Indeed, THE GIFT is not a horror movie. Heck, it’s only marginally a thriller. It’s actually better than that as it’s a complicated drama with high emotional stakes and a payoff that’s bound to be controversial. It’s the kind of movie you spend hours talking about with your friends afterwards and certainly one that will spur strong reactions from both its detractors and fans.

    Like many other films of its type, your overall enjoyment of THE GIFT probably depends on you not knowing too much before walking in. I won’t go into spoiler territory except to say that other than a few cheap scares that were likely thrown in so they could be cut into trailers, THE GIFT is a really restrained and extremely well-crafted for a directorial debut. Working for so many A-list directors has clearly rubbed off on Edgerton, but he doesn’t ape their styles. He goes for a subtle, straightforward tone that makes this feel unpredictable and realistic, and as such THE GIFT is surprisingly unsettling once it rolls around to its wholly unexpected climax.

    I'm totally down for this.

    This is a good movie for those who havent seen it yet id really recommend it. What i liked about it is that it isnt straightforward good guy vs bad guy stuff its a little more complex than that. It kept my attention throughout (albeit being maybe a little bit overlong) and leaves you with a climax to think about/talk about after. 8/10

    It's a good movie, I'd dare say it's right up there with movies like The Hand that Rocks the Cradle, but you never see it coming and it's creepy, sinister, sad, gut-wrenching and a very bitter ending that makes it a blast. Also it's has an anti-bullying message. Worth a watch!

    8/10
