 and  star in the ‘found footage’ type horror, ‘Devil’s Due’.

Miller (who starred in the Matthew Perry sitcom ‘Go On’) and Gilford play Sam and Zach McCall, a pair of lovey dovey newleyweds who finds themselves expecting a child after a crazy party of a honeymoon in Mexico.

Sam soon feels something is wrong with the baby (or with herself) but puts it down to first-time-mom nerves.  But when her husband Zach starts to suspect the worse from Sam’s frightening mood and bizarre actions, he sets up hidden cameras in their house to capture some answers.

When he reviews his honeymoon video, he discovers footage of unknown figures performing some kind of ritual on Sam.  Seeking the help of the local priest, confirms that Sam is involved with some type of satanic possession.

While the film has a very interesting premise, the execution could have and should have been much more frightening.  This is a horror after all, yet the film failed to take advantage of all the opportunities available to scare the audience.  Instead the focus was more on fluffing up the characters with cute daily anecdotes that made the film feel more like a dull romance-drama rather than the horror it claims to be.

With some impressive visual effects, overall ‘Devil’s Due’ did not possess the quality scare factor like other films of its type, such as ‘Paranormal Activity’ or ‘[Rec]’ .  Miller however, delivered a stand-out performance as the possessed Sam and was excellent to watch.

7/10

 and  star in the funny and cleverly edited crime flick, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

Harry (played by Downey Jr.) is a thief with a heart, who accidentally runs into an audition room whilst escaping the police.

Figuring out the only way to stay safe is to wing the audition, Harry reads the script (which conveniently resembles his own life) and blows the casting director away with his naturalistic performance.

Harry is then cast into the whirlwind world of Hollywood and finds himself at an industry party, bumping into the likes of Harmony, (played by Monaghan) an aspiring actress and coincidentally also a childhood friend of Harry’s.

Upon a stake-out to research for his new acting role, Harry and private investigator Gay Pery (played by Kilmer) witness the dumping of a dead body and soon find themselves being targeted by the real assailants.

Together, the threesome battle the villains in such contrived but very comedic fashion.

The unique narrative and storytelling perspective of this film makes it one that will be studied and remembered as a classic in years to come.

After all the film festival buzz for this film, I had to check it out.

It opens on Esther, a heavily pregnant young woman who gets attacked after leaving her doctor’s appointment.  She ends up losing her baby and tries to resume her quiet, reclusive life.

Esther attends a support group for mothers who have lost their children and meets Melanie – a charming, upbeat woman who claimed to have lost her son and husband in a car crash.  Esther is drawn to Melanie’s spirit, who seems a vast difference from the other more depressed members of the group.

Upon looking for a job, Esther sees Melanie in a department store in hysterics, looking for her lost son.  Intrigued by the discrepancies in her stories, Esther follows Melanie to her home and finds her son and husband are both still alive.

As Esther’s friendship with Melanie continues to grow.  Melanie confides in Esther about how if given the choice, she would rather her child were dead if abducted, a dark secret Esther understands fully, since she also never wanted to be a mother.

What follows is the exploration of the character’s darkest thoughts, their true wants and needs that normally wouldn’t be shared in fear of not being socially accepted.

Although Proxy does have a certain sense of originality behind it, the movie seems to drag out a lot of the time and because the story spans the plot lines of 2 different main characters, the result is a very LONG 2 hour plus film.

 and  perform well as Esther and Melanie respectively, however their supporting cast were far from impressive and really let down the quality of this piece.

6/10
