Horror takes a left turn in this indie-film anthology of scary stories on the open road, Chad Villella, left, and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin in 'Southbound.'. Movie's great btw, very much worth watching, and you guys should definitely think about a sequel.
pid: '94' Jesse O Super Reviewer. And the final short plays out as a riff on The Strangers before trying to explain what exactly was going on earlier in The Way Out. Directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, David Bruckner Well, they're going to try to stop you but you gotta say "fuck it" and keep moving. We never explicitly see him accept his wife's call, so it is possibly that he never even picked up his wife's call. But then it became unbelievably tense, my heart was pounding out of my mouth. They just seem to happen in the same stetch of desolate road. The effects were pretty damn good. Here, the various stories are all based around one small town and stretch of road in the middle of nowhere, with each vignette flowing from one to the next and often featuring overlapping characters. I thought the monsters, whatever they were, were incredibly cool looking.

Seeing the VHS series, I wouldn't be surprised if Radio Silence created this film for no other purpose than entertainment (this is an unfair statement to make as I haven't delved into VHS in any other way than watching the movie). This review may contain spoilers. The overall concept is executed smartly and smoothly, a few fun set-pieces are distributed evenly throughout, and it's all very competently filmed... but the stories themselves aren't particularly exciting, and there's not…, Daily Horror Scavenger Hunt 2 - August 2018. What V/H/S 3 should've been. Because this is your highway. The one thing it get's right is the cool looking, skeletal monster's/alien's which appear to be stalking the main characters. Props for using Carnival of Souls instead of Night of the Living Dead, the typical choice for a horror-movie-within-a-movie. It comes with all the problems inherently attached to the format, but at least gives it a good crack of the whip, and (if nothing else) features a handful of memorable moments. Good thing I downloaded it illegally or I'd be taking the disk and throwing it on to the nearest highway right now. Things start with The Way Out directed by Radio Silence, who handle both the opening and closing stories.
Did Lucas do their dirty for them and because of that given the OK to leave? I suppose it's all a matter of opinion but I just fail to see how shitty acting, a flimsy plot, an awful score and pathetic dialogue should deserve so much positive attention. I'm a sucker for anthology films, even though they're inherently disjointed, but Southbound has a fluidity lacking in most, because it ditches the often awkwardly inserted shell story that serves to frame most of these films. Yeah, I quite liked this one, amazing acting, and fun! Though I'm still looking forward to your segment in Southbound, I have to say I was pretty underwhelmed with Devil's Due. Every single tale adds to the lore, so it's important that we find the most important details of each to assist us in create some final thesis. A few brief notes: Story One: Two men on the run from their past- Feels very christian-y but nope I'm wrong about that. Otherwise, the only story I really thought was done well was "The Accident.". And I’m not saying they are wrong but I am saying “how are they right”?! Usually when reviewing anthology-films, I take a holistic perspective and do a summary of the film.
There were good moments here and there but I never want to see it again. AUA!!! Finally, Lucas' tale raises a couple questions. Southbound is a 2015 American anthology horror film directed by Radio Silence, Roxanne Benjamin, David Bruckner, and Patrick Horvath. As some others have said, nothing was explained. At its core, it was just like every other found footage movie ever.
Unfortunately, the next story, Patrick Horvath’s Jailbreak, starts a slight downward trajectory due to its half-assed attempts to build out a mythology around the film’s location. In the second chapter, Sirens, it is obvious that the family that picked up the White Tights were expecting all 4 girls, not 3 (Alex was missing). I can handle the truth. Southbound is absolutely amazing.
You bring up eternal suffering, part of me wonders if Lucas wasn't let go and will just keep driving down that stretch of road, hitting the girl, trying to save her, getting new clothes, a new car, leaving, and repeating the whole process.

I love anthology horror and found this to be the best that's come out recently. Like all anthology movies there’s always at least one weak segment and this was no different, at least this one had more good than bad. I truly am happy that folks enjoyed this, but...I hated it. The mother made mention of Alex not being present and the two creepy boys made a comment at dinner saying "I thought there were 4 of you"? Nightmares don’t have a beginning or end...they flow from one idea to the next and often ideas will cycle through multiple times so it never feels like you can escape it’s clutches.

Overall enjoyable, suspenseful, and unexpected. It would explain some of the unexplainable stuff, like people being demons and the people able to control everything and events in the hospital. Is Radio Silence just in it for the money, or is he actually trying to make something worth while? Your question about Lucas answering his wife's call vs. the 911 call time could simply be a continuity mistake in production, but it could also be chalked up to hell simply not operating on real world rules, since other things in-universe clearly don't operate on real world rules (the surgeon being on the phone, people knowing information that wasn't verbally shared, invisible door in a wall, etc.).

What makes it good?
One of them, let's call them Peter, said that he really liked the new It movies, to which another friend, let's call them Charlie, audibly scoffed and told Peter that those weren't proper horror movies and began lecturing him about how Hollywood was ruining the genre with cheap jumpscares and happy endings.
