GD Star Rating

deadline-art-afmAlice, 32, a writer recovering from a psychological breakdown retreats to a remote Victorian house to convalesce and focus on finishing her screenplay in time for a fast approaching deadline. Shortly after her arrival, mysterious noises and strange happenings cause her imagination to run wild, sending her on a twisting and terrifying pursuit to find out what is behind the endless mind games.

Deadline is a horror movie which doesn’t exactly bring anything new to the genre, but that turned out good and bad. The atmosphere for the movie was creepy for the most part, but some of the cheap scares such as chairs falling over don’t really do it anymore. There were a few decent scare scenes, but what kept me watching was the curiosity of how things would unfold, even though I had a good idea of what was going on. Brittany Murphy wasn’t too bad in this, but she didn’t have a whole lot to work with.

Throughout the whole movie I kept thinking there was potential in the film to be great, but the lack of creativity borrowing from other horror movies held it back. Deadline is one of those movies you won’t want to rush out to see, but if you have a quiet night in and feel like a horror movie Deadline should do the job without being too cheesy or too gory.

Ratings Explained

10-9 = Very few movies will get a 9 or 10 and it is reserved for great movies with very few flaws. The acting, direction, music, plot, and ending all have to be excellent.

8-7 = Most highly recommended movies will fall under this range. They will be enjoyable and get a positive recommendation. Some flaws in the film will keep it from getting a higher score, but definitely worth checking out.

6-5 = Films in this range have several flaws and may be entertaining, but lack most of the qualities that make films great. These are generally reserved for when you want to watch a film and don't have too many options.

4-3 = Anything in this range isn't very good, but has a few positives throughout to keep it from getting the lowest scores. Even though the score is low there is still a chance some people may like these.

2-1 = The bottom of the barrel, the only difference between 2 and 1 is that if I can finish the movie it automatically gets a 2, but if it is so terrible that I need to turn it off before it ends then it gets a 1.
