It had plenty of horror and plenty of laugh out loud moments. I'll say this, if you are fan enough to admit you at least liked the Sleepaway Camp 3, then this is for you!

Kyle G (ru) wrote: THE PASSION OF ANNA is a lovely film and another example of Bergman's genius. Through third-person narration and a reprise of a simple correspondence, he builds a crisp romantic fall-from-grace. The result is sensitive, beautiful, clear... Andreas (Max Von Sydow), a reclusive ex-convict mourning the recent death of his marriage, befriends Anna (Liv Ullman) and a married couple, Eva (Bibi Andersson) and Elis (Erland Josephson), each of whom clarifies his splintered sense of self.The touches of nature always in the background (goats, a puppy, the isolated island itself) are damn-near perfect, masterfully framed, the furthest from fussy I've ever seen, and all examples of how badass Bergman is. We first meet Andreas tending a few goats on a snow-swept little Swedish farm. Eventually, we discover there's a maniac serially killing animals on the island: Andreas finds a puppy almost killed -- strung up on a noose, too light to break his neck, just kind of struggling and crying! -- and, later, a bunch of his goats butchered. It's an interesting background for the human drama. Anna is a woman crippled by the car accident that killed her husband and son; she meets Andreas when she borrows his telephone, and he secretly discovers her past bit by bit. The couple, Eva and Elis, touch Andreas soon enough; Eva begins an affair with him, and Elis shares a peculiar collection of photographs, which started off violence-obsessed but gradually absorbed other facets of human life. Discussions among the four of them are loose and wonderfully written... God, travel, work... freedom, shame, pain.

The film is based on one of the most feared animals on your planet: the spider. Both creepy and laughable, I like this movie produced by Steven Spielberg a lot. Jeff Daniels (Speed), John Goodman (The Flintstones) and Julian Sands (Leaving Las Vegas) give a good performance. Better check your bag of popcorn before watching this movie... During a scientific expedition led by Dr. James Atherton (Sands) in the Amazon, photographer jerry Manley gets bitten by a new species of spider. His body is placed in a wooden box and taken back to the States where it can be buried in Manley's hometown Canaima. Unknowingly the spider travelled along and makes its way to the barn of Dr. Ross Jennings (Daniels), who has just moved Canaima with his wife and two kids. The exotic spider mates with a local domestic spider and very soon the town is overrun by their offspring. When people start to die mysteriously, Jennings knows that something isn't right because every corpse seems to have a little bite mark. With the help of Dr. Atherton and exterminator Delbert McClintock (Goodman) he investigates the homes of the victims and discovers that spiders are the culprits. Jennings will have to overcome his arachnophobia in order to save the whole town. Can he do it?
Crusader (kr) wrote: I have seen all but one movie/documentary regarding this subject, including the three excellent HBO documentaries. I also read the book "Devil's Knot" that the movie is based on and also Damian Echols' excellent book, "Life After Death."The film "Devil's Knot" did a nice job of summarizing the essence of the horrific abuse of the justice system; however, it should have been made longer to give more personality to the three wrongly convicted then-teenagers and the families of the victims. In that regard, this film failed miserably. And yes, I realize the movies based on true stories are simply a dramatization and can't include everything from, but this movie could have done better. I was tempted to give it only three stars, but the acting was good and the screenplay was okay. I realize how tough it is to take such a thorough 2002 book as "Devil's Knot" (by Mara Leveritt) and tell that story on the "big screen," but I was a little disappointed. This film had a hard act to follow as the three HBO documentaries on the same subject were exceptional!Those wanting to know the ENTIRE story of what happened would be advised to take the time to watch all three HBO "Paradise Lost" documentaries, all of which are excellent, but be warned, they include very graphic footage of the crimes!
