Laakekoe (2018, Topai Kauma, Ville Vaisnen)

AKA Medicated.
Unscrupulous types try and open a portal using human guinea pigs. Short and sweet, just over the hour etc. Obviously made by a load of metal fans ahem.
The lead reminded me of Robert Webb .... a bit. Finnish. Not as much fun as Heavy Trip imho.

I've edited it so it's now hidden behind a spoiler link. You won't see details by accident now.

What like some people reviews of a new film don't have spoilers ,
Easy enough don't read it, not like you won't have seen or know spoilers by now for a film that's about 45yr old

I'm not reading gag's post because it's cut and paste irrelevancy. I want to know what people on here think about movies not from random websites across the internet.

There's far too much cut and pasting goes on here. Far more than any other forum i've seen. People don't seem to be able to think and write for themselves.

MV5BMmE2MmM5Y2YtNzEzMy00ZjJiLWE2ZWEtYzMzZGYxMTYxNDM2XkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyMTAyNDYyNzcw._V1_.jpg

Best friends Maya and Dini are two ladies struggling to make ends meet they both work in a toll booth with dreams if quitting and opening a clothes shop together. After a run in with a strange customer Maya has had enough and they decide now is the time to follow their dream. But the dream is an even bigger struggle with no guaranteed income they are struggling more than ever barely making enough to make rent. But with news that Maya may be able to claim a big inheritance from her rich family their luck maybe about to finally change. Once in her ancestral village she finds out her family is hated and her life is in serious danger.

This is a pretty solid Indonesian horror with a great setting the village is pretty creepy and the locals even more so. You get the feeling of unease for the girls all alone in the middle of nowhere surrounded by these people not an easy place to find or get out of. I really like that it relies on atmosphere and the setting rather than cheap scares when things appear in the background they are just there and then gone no jumping into the camera or anything of that bullsh*t. Ill say no more to avoid spoiling anything. My one problem that really felt so out of place was a scene taken directly from TCM it was so blatant and really unnecessary

I really enjoyed this right from the start i was hooked straight away. There is like i said already a really great use of atmosphere and also lighting and colours to set a mood. I will have to check out the directors other film Satan's Slave.

7/10

It was cut and paste because it wasn't my review of a film it was a reference about the film not being true and explanation behind the story.
if I put up a link there's complaint about not putting the post from the link, so someone will end up doing it, and if I put up the post from the link I get complained about for doing it, but yet if other people do it nobody says anything, sometimes I feel I just can't win. Damned if I do damned if I don't.

I know what it was and it wasn't relevant to this thread because it wasn't your review of the film nor had you just watched it. That's why i didn't read it.

Anyway, back to topic.

Edit - Seeing as you added to your post i'll add to mine.

I don't know about anyone else but i don't read anything much that you link to from other sites. I don't care.

However i do read everything you actually write yourself. That goes for everyone, not just you gag.

If i want to read other sites i will do but whilst i'm on Cult Labs i want to read what it's members have to say.

I'm not the only one who post links up, and the reason, why I use to only post links (before people edited it and put the whole link-up) is that a link doesn't take up much space so doesn't clog up the post and then people can have a choice if they want to click on the link or just ignore it, where as if the whole post is up it isn't as easy to ignore.

Don't you read anything? I did say it wasn't just you.

You don't seem to grasp that it's the posting of links that doesn't interest me.

If i'm on this forum i want to read from this forum or look at images on this forum not go to another website via a link. It doesn't happen much on any other forum because they don't allow it.

Think and post for yourself.

Back to topic now.

What have you watched?

V/H/S

I know the concept of found footage is shaky camera etc, and vhs tapes can be of bad quality, but I found the whole film had to much shakiness, bad pic, poor quality etc to be able to concentrate.
