As an Actor myself Anthology films are one of my favorites in the genre but many times you get several stories that dont hold up to the others, in Southbound however that is not the case. This is a film that could have easily come out back in the 70s 80s and even has that grindhouse look and feel and feel especially with the score. I highly recommend this one check it out !
A perfect nightmare (by m-hof)
Normally mobiles don't scare me but this one is different. Creepy and surreal anthology horror that gets under your skin. David Lynch meets The Twilight Zone. Don't watch it alone.
What horror should be like (by mmmonsterfan)
This was a good film overall. It's split into different segments, and like most people have said, the segment titled The Accident is definitely the best. It's a standout for sure. It's unique and keeps you watching.I like how this film ties in all the characters and stories. It's all done pretty seamlessly too. If you're looking good horror film without the jump scares, then this is the one for you. It's definitely a winner.
Checked Southbound out at the Midnight Madness screening at TIFF 2015 and it was a blast. A throwback to the horror-anthology style of the 80's but with a fresh twist on the wraparound. The device in which each segment flows into the next was unique and added a new layer to the experience. I am a huge fan of horror anthologies in general VHS, ABC's of Death, Late Night Double Feature, etc. but occasionally they seem like a collection of shorts thrown together. While there is a charm to those types of anthologies, Southbound is clearly well thought out and designed. Loved all the <more>
segments, with "The Accident" being my favourite. This is a well written, shot, directed and performed feature. Highly recommended.
Its very rare that I see a film that prompts me to put a review on IMDb, but sometimes, a film can be so unforgivably poor, so unpredictably mediocre or so unexpectedly great I can't help myself.This film is the best horror I have seen this year so far 2016 . There are few if any flaws in it - with some great surprises. The main surprise is the fact that the film stars 'some actors you've never heard of' and yet pretty much all of them play their individual roles brilliantly. They can ALL act and are convincing in their roles.The film is a 'loop' horror. <more>
'Loop' as in a popular format whereby a number of tales are told that all connect together in some way. In actual fact, all of the short stories in this film need to follow each other, but the loop could have started with any one of them. Its just so well done.I went into this film completely blind and despite being a horror the 1980's John Carpenter style soundtrack made me beam. If there were no mobile phones or modern Audi A8s present the film could have been set in 1983 for all we know! Very clever storytelling that despite having a non-unique style had unpredictable outcomes at the end of each short. Very good. I loved it. Slight whiffs of 2005's 'Reeker' Michael Ironside and 1975's Race With The Devil in the mix here, but all reworked for a new decade with some old fashioned elements which make this a winner. Add to the mix a bunch of actors you won't recognise who all appear to have actually been to acting school at some point make this a worthwhile addition to your movie collection. If I rate a film here as 9/10, it is because I know I will watch it again.Not for the squeamish - it's pretty bloody :D
Horror films have seen a great revival in the past decade. While in the late 90s and early 2000s you would be lucky to get one good horror film every couple years, now it seems like there's several excellent titles being released every year. Southbound is another excellent entry in the modern horror revival and worthy of any horror fan's time.This is an anthology created by some of the filmmakers behind the original V/H/S anthology film that came out several years ago David Bruckner and the Radio Silence team . Like V/H/S, this film continues the format of having a different director <more>
direct each segment, but this time it's professionally shot and not another "found footage" film. Also, the stories in this film blend into each other somewhat so there's a greater feeling of continuity.What made V/H/S great continues here: an uncanny sense of the weird and a keen sense for the truly nightmarish. The scariest moments are often left unexplained and the source of the horror remains somewhat in shadow for the viewer to imagine over. Southbound calls to mind some of the darker moments of David Lynch, or the short fiction of Thomas Ligotti.Overall, this is a great film that will scare you without relying on excessive gore, jump scares or other tired clichés. One star subtracted for some rather unconvincing CGI.
Has the heart of classic horror comics. (by sam21462)
This was one of the most surprising finds in recent years. It absolutely has no right, whatsoever, to be as entertaining as it is. If you are a horror fan you are in for a treat as it solidly checks off every box one can imagine. Its varied yet interlocking tales serve up something for almost every taste. From ghost story to evil old god worship to body horror to home invasion thriller it merrily jumps about in a way that could have proved confusing and offsetting but, instead, seems to act more as a museum tour on all the things that make us check the locks and fear the shadows.While there <more>
will, no doubt, be some debate as to what the pocket universe we are presented with represents, there is no doubt, in my mind, that it represents a person or persons who made a movie from an old school heart with a modern day sensibility. As stated in the summary it very much reminds me of the best of the classic horror comics such as the EC Comics titles which began their lives in the very early 1950's.That being said do not mistake this for an old fashioned movie. It is very much genre savvy for today's eyes, ears and mind. In almost total, it is well acted, directed, written, scored and there is a fair share of completely creepy cinematography. It will leave one with both haunting imagery as well as interesting trains of thought to follow, if you dare.Huge hats off to those who gifted us with this. This is how good horror can be and I truly hope it finds its way to a far higher place in this world than the vast majority of horror that tends to cross my eyes these days.
Referenced Joyce's novel since the same impenetrability and circular narrative style are apparent in "Southbound", an "indie" now playing in very few theaters; only one in the NYC area. It is a movie made up of five connected stories in which the end is the beginning, hence the circular feeling; the same feeling derived from reading the Joyce work.Although there's no intellectual challenge here, "Southbound" is a cut above the 'slasher' film in technical achievement; it is well-written and acting is surprisingly good. The script is better than <more>
normally found and retains the confounding motivation and irrationality predominant in films of this type. But it is a 'slasher' and there are buckets of blood everywhere, with lots of gruesome scenes. "Southbound" is not for all tastes, but if you like horror movies and the uneasy feeling and sudden blasts of 'scare', this one is for you. It is better than many mainstream films of the genre and should be in many more theaters. But be sure to wear a slicker to protect from blood spatter.
A worthy addition to the horror anthology sub-genre (by manuelasaez)
There have been many horror anthologies that either succeed in bringing various directors together to form an entertaining whole, or fail miserably by being a clash of seemingly nonsensical ideas. Fortunately, Southbound falls in the former category. The film starts out with a very interesting story about two men who obviously committed a crime and are running from a menacing force. Then, the scene is over and it segues into the following story seamlessly, with the ending of the first story bleeding into and becoming the basis of the next. This is inventive film-making; it causes the <more>
directors to look past their bubble of creativity and focus on how their work will fit as part of an "outfit", and not just work as a stand alone short film. In fact, aside from the fact that you rarely see the same actor twice, the film could work as a single film, instead of an anthology. That's how well it is done. While some segments do indeed work better than others, as a whole, the movie does more things right than they do wrong. With horror anthologies being a rare breed, enjoy this film for doing what many directors are scared to; bring creative minds together to tell various stories, each with a distinct yet cohesive point of view . I thoroughly enjoyed it.
