Come on Hollywood, step up!

On Thursday I went to see "The Possesion."


I give it 2 1/2 stars. It was entertaining, but not original enough.
The Basic Plot ~ A young girl buys an antique box at a yard sale, unaware that inside the collectible lives a malicious ancient spirit. The girl's father teams with his ex-wife to find a way to end the curse upon their child.

It almost seems to me that Hollywood has run out of ideas. They keep taking the same core idea and recycling it. The Possession is an exorcism movie. Girl becomes possessed by a demon...family finds willing participant to perform exorcism. And of course, it's "based on a true story." As was The Exorcism of Emily Rose and The Devil Inside.

Jennifer Lawrence has a new movie coming out called The House at the End of the Street. Basic Plot ~ A mother and daughter move to a new town and find themselves living next door to a house where a young girl murdered her parents. When the daughter befriends the surviving son, she learns the story is far from over.

The running theme seems to be haunted houses and evil children. I'm not gonna lie, there is nothing scarier than an evil child (execpt for clowns).

Ethan Hawke has a movie coming out soon called Sinister. Let's see...a house where people died...CHECK...scary dead children...CHECK...a "boogie man"...CHECK!

Oh, let's not forget Jessica Biel's new move The Tall Man. Don't get me started on the title! Scary man...CHECK...taker of children...CHECK! There was also Daniel Radcliffe's movie, The Woman In Black. Haunted House...CHECK...taker of children...CHECK...creepy dead kids...CHECK!


I'm all for recycling and saving the earth, but when it comes to my entertainment value, can't Hollywood come up with something better!
