In honor of Halloween this month was a horror inspired was our Teen Terror edition. We featured a new wave of genre-bending and creative horror stories, specifically those centered on teens.
Here were the choices:
And the winner was…
PG-13 | 1h 57min | 2017
Director: M. Night Shyamalan
Here’s what the teen audience had to say…
FINAL RATING: 5 out of 8 slices
Every PaaM night, we ask our teens to give us their honest reviews of the winning movie. We then select voices that capture the range of opinions and critiques. Read what Eric, Daniel, Gerard and One Shy PaaMer had to say about the mind bending thriller.
Choose three words to describe the movie.
Eric: Convincing, suspenseful, confusing.
Daniel: Visceral, psychological, gradual.
Gerard: Convoluted, boggling, helpless.
Anonymous: Scary, psychological, horrid.
What was your favorite scene? Bonus: Why? **SPOILER ALERT!**
Eric: The scene where Casey finds out Hedwig does not have an actual window. It exaggerates her helplessness in the situation. She realizes she’s at the mercy of Kevin’s personalities.
Daniel: I loved the scene with Dr. Fletcher figuring out Barry was Dennis. It was scary but made a nice contrast with the other horror scenes.
Gerard: When the Beast’s chest expands abnormally, it shows how powerful he is and how screwed the girls are.
Anonymous: When Dennis says: “There’s a crumb on your shirt… just take it off.” It was funny.
Would you recommend this to a friend? Why or why not?
Eric: Yes, because it fun to figure out what’s going to happen.
Daniel: Yes, this was a great horror movie.
Gerard: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. It’s interesting to see how different parts of the story come together.
Anonymous: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend because although the movie was intense, I really loved the PaaM experience and hope to attend again.
