Film Review: Grave Danger (2008)

SYNOPSIS:

A woman is terrorized by a psychotic caller who terrorizes her with terrifying tales of murderous ventriloquist dummies, possessed housewives, and watching strangers. But will she live to tell the tales?

REVIEW:

“Jim Haggerty’s Grave Danger” is an exercise in the do-it-yourself school of low budget filmmaking. What it lacks in originality, it makes up for in fun and silliness. This film has a bit of everything, senseless violence, wooden dummy … Continue reading

Scream-4-movie-6

SYNOPSIS:

Ten years have passed, and Sidney Prescott, who has put herself back together thanks in part to her writing, is visited by the Ghostface Killer.
