(de) wrote: I like how The Hidden reveals itself. The movie begins as a cops & robbers story then it slowly turns into science fiction & finally ends in a blaze of horror. Even better is how comfortable the film feels in each of those genres
(ru) wrote: Fingerprints is a lousy supernatural horror/thriller. I'm very forgiving of horror films and I have praised many that I probably shouldn't have, but there are times when a horror film is so terrible even I won't give it a pass. Fingerprints is one of those rare horror films that I failed. Worse yet, this isn't just some run-of-the-mill kind of crappy horror film, but it's one that actually has an intriguing premise and all kinds of potential that are shamefully wasted.The film focuses on a troubled girl who just got out of rehab and is moving to a new town with a troubled history of its own nearly fifty years back when a tragic train collision with a school bus killed all the children on board. Now, there's a series of urban legends around town about what really happened, paranormal events at the tracks like the dead children being seen, and the ghosts of the children even pushing cars over the tracks to safety if they stop too close to them.In the midst of drama at home and at her new school, the main character ends up finding herself caught up in the town's history and tries to solve what really happened to those children, all while people start turning up dead.What should have been an interesting ghost story combined with thriller elements instead turns into a horror film that is not scary or atmospheric, and a thriller that is so stupid that no amount of suspension of disbelief could ever forgive the glaring plot holes and reveals that are so dumb, they're outrageous in their idiocy. The story is horribly written and never pulls in the viewer as it should, and is also made worse by bland, one-dimensional characters who do things no human being would ever do, or do things that seem more appropriate for a comedy.The acting is also downright terrible most of the time. I've seen cheesy low budget nonsense from the 70's and 80's that have Oscar or Academy Award-caliber acting in comparison to this drab horror/thriller. The only thing that keeps some of the acting lively is the occasional moment of unintentional humor (Sadly, such moments are few and far between).With no scares, no atmosphere, no thrills, bad storytelling, and horrid acting, even by the standards of low budget horror, Fingerprints is garbage and one to avoid. Unless you enjoy being bored numb by bad storytelling, following poorly-developed characters, and being constantly baffled by gaping plot holes, this is not for you.

I listened to a Christmas movie themed episode of the podcast Maltin On Movies - hosted by Leonard Maltin and his daughter, Jesse. On it they gave a glowing recommendation to this film, as a sleeper hit film that not many people would know about. After a year or so of batting around the idea of seeing it, I bought it on a whim. It turned out to be a pretty good decision to take a gamble on the film recommended by Maltin. On DVD but should be on Blu-Ray.

(br) wrote: Dario Argento's second film is not as bad as you may have heard. Argento himself said that this was a disappointment and felt "too American and more like an action movie". Having heard that, my hopes were low when I picked this up at my local used books and movies store. But, it IS Argento, and the trailer made it look kind of cool, so I watched. And I have no idea what Argento's talking about. This isn't his best film, but it definitely isn't his worst (Mother of Tears; BARF). The title refers to the nine leads they have to follow, like the six suspects, and the supposed robbery of the genetic research lab. The cat probably represents the mystery, and if they can grab onto one of those tails, they've got it down. There aren't any bloody murders that you might expect from Argento, as most of the kills are by strangling. On the vontrary, bnthe mystery is very intriguing and will keep you guessing until the final reel. There's also a blind puzzle solver who walks around with his niece and his cane and I don't want to spoil what's special about the cane. Argento's inventive camera techniques are in full swing here, which propel The Cat O' Nine Tails well above your standard mystery and make it well worth watching. Just don't expect another Deep Red or Suspiria.
(es) wrote: Such an incredible movie! Groundbreaking story! Next to Seven Samurai, this perhaps is one of the best samurai movie there is. It takes a single idea or tradition of harakiri to question the morality and honor code of the bushido against the feudal system leading it to hypocrisy. Aside from being a samurai film, this perhaps is the best revenge story I've seen. It didn't use mere violence to take vengeance rather uses the bushido to hit it where it hurts the most. What can I say, I can keep on rambling all day of how good it is.
