Once the first attempt didn’t go so well she is decided to try again and is due to have her baby any day. Her and a few others make their way there in hopes that they can live a better life unless they get caught.
If you've been reading my reviews you would know I'm not the biggest fan of this series but still wanted to finish all of it and support @blumhouse since we don't get many shows like this anymore. This thankfully was a step in the right direction and it is my second favorite of them all since I'm now caught up. I didn't really know what to expect and felt like it was going to be a political film but thankfully it was not. It was intense in some scenes since she's pregnant and I can't ruin the story but it had me immersed entirely wondering how it was going to play out. It's not really a horror film but more of a sci-fi one and felt like it could be been an episode of ”Black Mirror” which I haven't seen much of. Either way, I really enjoyed this film and it caught me by surprise since these films aren't usually solid.
I'd give this film a 7/10.
North West End recently sent masochist and reviewer Gray Freeman over to our live show for some light suffering: "Horrific ... Amusing ... Funny ... Harrowing ... The stuff of nightmares ... An odd entity made of disparate pieces ... It’s difficult to say ... Like proper art it makes you think ... Twenty-four hours later and I’m still rather captivated ... It makes you question the boundaries of bad taste and acceptability ... It all becomes very serious and very compelling ... And sometimes that’s the point: to shock, to make people wake up. ★★★★." Look at that. The good people of Manchester gave us an astute review and four stars... Four stars, Rory. That's more than you had to offer, isn't it. We know you're reading this and no, we've not forgotten. All things move towards their ends Rory, all things move towards their ends.
#currentlywatching George A. Romero's Land of the Dead (2005) 🧟♂️🧟♀️ The last good film that Romero directed. Diary and Survival are 🐃💩 imo. I wish he'd been more active and cranked out tons of Z-flicks during the 90's. There is a giant gap in his filmography during that era. Not sure what he was busy with instead. 🤔
