It's creepy, violent, and tense. 80/100 [B+]The Den is a 2013 found-footage film directed by Zachary Donohue. There are now a lot of found-footage films, most of them are trashy. The Den is that rare, little and non famous found-footage film that surprisingly works. I saw this film at night with the lights turned on. My sister was using her laptop beside me and she said to me "Why are you jumping so much?" I replied to her "I'm watching a horror film called The Den and is scary as hell". This film is definitely one of the best found-footage films of the year, and one of the scariest ones ever to me. Horror is my favorite genre, but horror films don't scare me at all, I just like the genre. The Den scared me so much, I couldn't sleep that night. This movie was a real frightening experience. This is my kind of film. It was very impressive, quite scary and unforgettable.Elizabeth Benton (Melanie Papalia) logs onto a video-chat site known as the Den, on a mission to explore the habits of its users. During one of her random video-chats, Elizabeth watches in horror as a teenage girl is gruesomely murdered in front of her webcam. While the police dismiss it as a viral prank, Elizabeth believes what she saw is real and takes it upon herself to find the truth. Well that's basically the plot of the movie. I literally couldn't sleep that night. That's when you realize that you just watched an effective horror film, one of those scary movies that keep you awake at night. This film is scary because all of the situations that these characters experienced could be actually real. The Den is also extremely violent and messes with you. I jumped, I was engaged with the protagonist and I was entertained.Its execution was impressive, it has flow and I was never bored. It's a very entertaining film. It could be a little bit silly and mediocre for some people and I totally understand that, if you didn't enjoy this film as much as I did, it's fine. The horror genre needs more films like The Den. Also, I think that this movie was inspired on a true story about the mysterious "deep-web". To me, this was a very different and original horror flick. Compared to all these trashy found-footage films such as: Mr. Jones and Alien Abduction, The Den is a remarkable one. The characters were pretty likable and you care about them. The performances were excellent, Melanie Papalia did a great job with her performance. The direction was stunning, vibrant, energetic and so twisted. Zachary Donohue has to make more horror films.There were a lot of disturbing and unforgettable scenes. I liked the opening scene it was funny and effective, the first act was creepy as hell and has some suspense. The second act is more violent and filled with lots of effective jump-scares. The third act is an explosion, lots of action and violence. It kinda reminded me to movies like Saw and Hostel, it was quite similar. Watch this film in your computer, it will be a full experience. It will blow your brains out. The Den explains some things about a very important issue like the mysterious "deep web". Just one tip for you before seeing the movie, search on Google "Deep Web", read some articles about it, and then... watch this film. Don't watch any of the clips or trailers, just go see it. [B+]

(br) wrote: Great cast, Michael Douglas is da man!!! His character was self driven, sex addict who does things the way he wants and tries to get away from his troubles but trouble follows him. It was a good movie, I wouldn't say it was his best. Definitely check it out, I would recommend this movie.

(ag) wrote: How do you go from pure artistry to a waste of time??This is a ginormous let down down as a conclusion to the series that brought anime to the next level, the pacing all over the place with battles one minute and moments of depression in the next. In fact the entire film in it's self is down right depressing and I truly forgot this even exsisted until a friend suggested that I come over to her house to watch the darn thing. The verdict?: If you like over the top sappyness with horrible pacing ( which I assume you don't ) skip this movie and just re-watch the previous one you'll probably enjoy it more than watching this film.

The red head?s scream seemed to be dubbed in. The acting was so so. IN some scenes (or depending on the actor) it as irritating other times bearable. C- On a somewhat funny note. There?s a Michael Lutz that plays in this, & a Christopher Cullen!! (Lutz is the last name of the actor that plays Emmet & Cullen is the last name of the ?Vampires? in Twighlit.)

(es) wrote: The only screen pairing of future real life husband and wife Clark Gable and Carole Lombard. Devastated by her death in a 1942 plane crash, Gable never got over losing her. After being widowed by Lombard (and despite marrying two more times) when Gable died 18 years later, his then pregnant wife/widow, Kay Spreckles, laid him to rest next to Lombard, as he had requested.
(ru) wrote: I expected just another good Altman, with crossing stories, neurotic pondering and americana gothic punches. The 3rd element is there, but this is so much more.... Its way out there, almost scary.Shelley Duvall and Sissy Spacek both deserves high praise for their work here; they have made together something pretty unique (yes there are strong undercurrents of ''persona'' but its its own thing). I never thought id say such a thing but it seems big parts of David Lynch sprought right out of this creative universe by Altman. And this is a very solid 5.
(kr) wrote: I don't mind violent films in the least and I really wished this one delivered on it's lofty action movie promise. Instead we get a run of the mill film that is cut together atrociously. This is the start of a now thankfully dead way of shooting a film with rapid cuts and colour filter feedback that is utterly unecessary. Tony Scott knows how to direct competent action, don't fix something that aint broke!
