In closing, I would recommend the film “We Are What We Are” to anyone who enjoys thrillers, suspense, and an intriguing story. ¬†Without a doubt one of the best films of the year.

If you enjoy creature or monsters then Frankenstein’s Army will do the trick. The creativity and design of the monsters are absoluting exciting. The effects were amazing and done so well that it was hard to believe they could accomplish the fx without a huge budget.

Regarding the worst film, look we have all had enough of Chucky. It’s done, dead and over.

Enjoy and feel free to post your feedback as well.
