The Divide (2012)

Look out for “The Divide” starring Milo Ventimiglia, Michael Biehn, Rosanna Arquette, Courtney B. Vance, and Lauren German on January 13th, 2012.

Nine strangers — all tenants of a New York high rise apartment –escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building’s bunker-like basement. Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, and they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness, each act against one another becomes more depraved than the next. While everyone in the bunker allows themselves to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape even with no promise of salvation on the outside.

Bereavement Trailer

In 1989, six year old Martin Bristoll was kidnapped from his backyard swing in Minersville Pennsylvania. Graham Sutter, a psychotic recluse, kept Martin imprisoned on his derelict pig farm, forcing him to witness and participate in unspeakable horrors. Chosen at random, his victim’s screams were drowned out by the rural countryside. For five years, Martin’s whereabouts have remained a mystery, until 17 year old Allison Miller comes to live with her Uncle, Jonathan. While exploring her new surroundings, Allison discovers things aren’t quite right at the farmhouse down the road. Her curiosity disturbs a hornet’s nest of evil and despair that once torn open, can never be closed.

A couple returns to North America for a family funeral, having lived in Shanghai, China for the previous six years. Soon after they arrive, their son begins to see ghosts and suffer possession by one of the living dead, and it all ties in with the Chinese festival of Ghost Month, when the doors of hell supposedly open and angry spirits are given the chance to terrorize the living.

They Wait

Occasionally a film slips under my nose and I don’t find out about it until later on; sometimes when it’s already near distribution. Then there are also times when I expect very little from a film and get much more out of it. They Wait is a perfect example of both. I had never heard of the flick until a week ago, and if you ignore the rip-off poster and cheesy title, the movie is actually pretty decent. It’s rare for a straight-to-DVD movie (especially one that isn’t foreign) to actually put forth that extra effort in delivering some decent tension and also attempt to give the viewer a couple worthy jolts.
