Movie Review : Solstice
This afternoon,my high school friends asked me to watch this movie with them. I thought ehh I know nothing about this movie and it looks like a crap movie. If it's big budget horror movie,I should've known about this movie but the fact is I wasn't.
The story in this movie begins with Megan who lost Sophie,her twin sister,due to suicide. She and her friends travel to the lake house to celebrate summer solstice. At the lake house,she's constantly being harassed by some spirit,which Megan believes is Sophie. She believes that Sophie guide her to something,and she wants to find out what it is. A local handsome guy who works at the shop on the gas station,complicates her relationship with her friends,because he tells a story about superstition and the way to channel the spirit.
I'd say that this movie isn't bad after all. There are some scenes which can suprise you (me not so much). I love the setting on this movie,it brings back an atmosphere of good horror movie from the past decade. The cast has some familiar actor/actresses like Shawn Ashmore who played Ice-man in X-Men,Hilarie Burton who played Peyton in One Tree Hill tv series,and Amanda Seyfriend who acted in Mean Girls and Mama-mia. I get it now why this movie has been in my city for quite some time,it's pretty good and it's a breath of fresh air,because the other movies are Indonesian super shit quality movies and some unknown Hollywood movies.
ps: why this 2008 horror movie came out right now in here is beyond me.
