4 Movie Collection (The Messengers / The Body / Ring around the Rosie / The Net 2.0) (2012) – By Jason S. Lockard
I received this 4 movie DVD collection from Mill Creek Entertainment in time for Halloween. And I was excited! As it says on the back of the DVD 4 Shocking Thrillers! So lets take an in depth look at the 4 movies included in this collection.
Our Rating System:
**** = Don’t Miss it!
*** = Worth a look.
** = An Ok way to spend an evening.
* = You haven’t missed anything.
The Messengers (2007) – The Solomon family moves into a peaceful sunflower farm in North Dakota, but they’re happy little lives are soon torn apart by suspicion, mayhem, and murder. This is an extremely creepy thriller with some awesome scares! ***
The Body (2001) – When word spreads about a recently discovered cave in Jerusalem containing a crucified body dated back to the 1st century A.D many believe it is the body of Jesus Christ. I have to say that this movie had some good action and was decent thriller, but in the end I was offended by it! **
Ring Around the Rosie (2006) – While spending time at her grandparent’s secluded summerhouse, a young woman (Gina Philips) is plagued by horrible visions and dreams of tragic past events. I found this film confusing and not very exciting! *½
The Net 2.0 (2006) – This is the sequel to The Net that starred Sandra Bullock. This time around it starred Nikki DeLoach (TV’s "North Shore") as Hope Cassidy, a beautiful computer expert who travels to Istanbul for the perfect job but instantly gets caught up in a high-tech frame job. While you don’t have to have seen the first film to watch this film! I think I would rather have seen the first one! *½
In the final analysis the video and audio transfer is tremendous, the DVD menus are easy to access and you can’t beat four movies for $10, but I think there are better thrillers that would have fit well with ‘The Messengers’ in the collection, but it was worth it just for that movie!
If you interested in this collection than head over to www.Millcreekent.com or your local DVD store and pick up a copy of the 4 Movie Collection featuring "The Messengers".
