i liked it, but i had no idea they were supposed to be in hell. I'm commenting on this, even though it's a month old, because I just watched the movie and I am sure some soul in the future will see it. Jesse O Super Reviewer. Soooooooooo I finally got around to watching this because I am eternally spending my time catching up to everyone else and like, I don’t see how anyone could give this slick horror anthology a bad review? share.
As a…. In Roxanne Benjamin’s fun and unnerving “Siren,” a rock trio hitches a ride from some Leave it to Beaver-looking Satanists who force the band’s lead singer to reckon with her role in a tragedy. The film is about as accurate a rendition as I could ever hope for! I thought the movie was all style, but the hospital scene was good. I thought the monsters, whatever they were, were incredibly cool looking. 911 is a joke, as are all emergency services and healthcare facilities, but bars and gas station diners seem to do pretty ok in the general economy of Helltown, Desert USA. Loved the mix of obvious with the implied, felt almost like Lovecraft. I am not accustomed to this forum or movie discussion in general but I'd enjoy putting some minds together and dissecting this film.
Southbound, an underrated anthology horror film offering morality tales consistent with the genre, effectively conveys that feeling.

This is for the Radio Silence guys. Benjamin’s segment kicks off the strongest stretch of Southbound, with a fun little horror story that has a few devilish twists, along with a grim yet funny ending that segues into the film’s high point. A few thoughts that might be worth noted: This movie IS in chronological order, and the ending is a completely different event from the beginning (eternal suffering).
Would love to know what you think of Southbound after you watch it! Are any of you guys fans of Silent Hill? It was the first time we were taking someone else's story and attempting to bring it to life. My question: is this the story you wanted to tell or was Devil's Due more or less an opportunity to direct a feature that you were offered? TMDb Your question about Lucas answering his wife's call vs. the 911 call time could simply be a continuity mistake in production, but it could also be chalked up to hell simply not operating on real world rules, since other things in-universe clearly don't operate on real world rules (the surgeon being on the phone, people knowing information that wasn't verbally shared, invisible door in a wall, etc.). Posted by 4 years ago. And I generally love anthology horror movies and will cut them a little slack, usually. It's not a movie about hell, but more about purgatory. Do you want the real answer or the canned one? This is worth discussing. I thought it was going somewhere with the cult thing in the beginning. Is Radio Silence just in it for the money, or is he actually trying to make something worth while?
Totally your call... Can you explain the subtext on the last episode (w/ the family)? KARMA MEANS NOTHING TO ME. There's nothing I hate more than movies that hammer you over head with what they are. A list that is trying to contain every horror film made that is not lost and is found on the…, Check out the official top 100 narrative feature films by women directors list, Jens Åge Jakobsen 5,163 films 1,343 15 Edit, Does it take you an hour to pick a movie? When he answers it, the surgeons answer instead of his wife. Do you love all types of movies? Danny finds his sister, who found Hell and wanted to be in Hell, but how the heck did Danny find her? And I’m not saying they are wrong but I am saying “how are they right”?! Southbound is a 2015 American anthology horror film directed by Radio Silence, Roxanne Benjamin, David Bruckner, and Patrick Horvath. i just watched the lodge last night and i’m looking for some more recommendations.
The dawn of the new century, the first 20 years. (specifically #1 & #5).
A few brief notes: Story One: Two men on the run from their past- Feels very christian-y but nope I'm wrong about that. Just saw this. Thank you!!! Overall enjoyable, suspenseful, and unexpected.
Why were they intended to be there? I had a blast with this and I didn't check to see how much longer I had to go in the film! But the less successful shorts in Southbound’s latter half don’t tank the film because of the overall thematic and visual through line. Sadie (Fabianne Therese), Kim (Nathalie Love) and Ava (Hannah Marks) are a touring band whose van breaks down on the highway, and after getting offered a ride by a polite couple to stay at their house for the night Sadie begins noticing something seriously wrong with their hosts. But the less successful shorts in Southbound’s latter half don’t tank the film because of the overall thematic and visual through line. Southbound Film Synopsis - Five interlocking tales of terror follow the fates of a group of weary travelers who confront their worst nightmares - and darkest secrets - over one long night on a desolate stretch of desert highway. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast. There was a lot of really cool stuff in it. Oh man good question. The hospital one was the only slightly memorable story, and like, "the hospital story" is literally all I remember about it, like I don't even remember what happened, just that at the time of watching it's the only one that stood out for the sole fact that it was "not as shit as the rest".
We are the writers, directors, producers, and cast of the new horror movie Southbound and we'll be online Thursday, February 25th starting at 9am PST to answer any and all of your questions. I don't understand how the guy got to hell in the first place, and his sister didn't either. But now, after two V/H/S sequels, two ABCs of Death films, and with more “anthrillogies” on the way, the format is starting to get a bit tired again.
I feel like it's overrated compared to a lot of other recent anthologies that have been released recently. More details at I have no idea what people see in it. He works hard to create indie horror that's unique. A decent start. Each story led into the next with one thing from the previous story leading into the next one. Going to Helltown seems like a bad idea because once everyone gets there they want to leave but can't? Like episodes of The Twilight Zone that a baked Rod Serling might have written after watching Carnival of Souls, these chapters are eerie to the extreme, and seedy enough to make you feel like you’re watching something you were never meant to see.
Yup. Like all anthology movies there’s always at least one weak segment and this was no different, at least this one had more good than bad. how? The gravel-voiced DJ on the radio dedicates the next song directly to them: “This one is for all you lost souls racing down to redemption, and all you sinners running from your past by heading straight into that pit of darkness up ahead.” Here’s hoping the fugitives enjoy the tune, because their demons (represented here by floating skeleton monsters) are about to catch up with them. Two men on the run from their past, a band on its way to a gig, a man struggling to get home, a brother in search of his long-lost sister and a family on vacation are forced to confront their worst fears and darkest secrets in these interwoven tales. I don't think it was super great, but the concept of the hellions on the other end of the phone cackling after they had the guy unintentionally kill the girl was a bit unsettling. At its core, it was just like every other found footage movie ever. And yet there are a few people whose opinions I respect that I do that did? It's not a movie about hell, but more about purgatory. You really need to watch it a few times to get the connections, but it really does come full circle. Here's hoping the fugitives enjoy the tune, because their demons (represented here by floating skeleton monsters) are about to catch up with them.
I don't even remember enough to say I disliked it, it just left absolutely no mark on my memory beyond "yeah that hospital bit was cool" and I don't even remember the actual segment, just that it had to do with a hospital and it wasn't as shit as the rest of the movie.
Just nothing. Movie's great btw, very much worth watching, and you guys should definitely think about a sequel.
The effects were pretty damn good. Synopsis: Five interlocking tales of terror follow the fates of a group of weary travellers who confront their worst nightmares - and darkest secrets - over one long night on a desolate stretch of desert highway. Produced by Brad Miska, the film premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival on September 16, 2015, and was released theatrically on February 5, 2016 in a limited release. There are just too many plot devices unexplained in this film which bounds past mysterious and lands on a head scratching WTF. 3 years ago. I thought it was decent. save hide report. I wish the acting was a little stronger and the script a little better in a few of the stories but this is a solid watch that I enjoy very much. Haven't played the game, but still want to watch the movie. A strange anthology horror featuring four separate tales by four directors all involving seemingly unrelated stories of desperate soul's travelling down a deserted stretch of highway. We met a lot of great friends along the way and had a ton of fun making it, so maybe it was more of a vacation. Did Lucas do their dirty for them and because of that given the OK to leave?
I would like to chat about this movie.
Really liked this one. In what seems to be completely accidental, in the third act The Accident, Lucas hits Saide from the White Tight's with his car and pretty much kills her. With many unanswered questions, were there any definitive answers held back? "Being sure is sort of a fancy way of being lazy." The purposefully vague plot makes this segment easy to forget, but it does a fine job establishing the major elements that run through the rest of the stories: the long stretch of highway in the Californian desert, and themes of regret, guilt and retribution. Interestingly, Roxanne Benjamin, a producer on V/H/S, stepped into the role of director in Southbound with a segment following an all-girl band who are stranded on a long stretch of highway, I hate that it's even noteworthy that a woman participated in a horror anthology but it's still a rare occurrence and her segment was second best, so right on! Do you have any other movie plans lined up? I very rarely say a movie is unwatchable but for me, this was just that. Southbound is an ass movie. That feeling must have been on the minds of the team behind Southbound, who also made V/H/S. The film contains five stories set on desolate stretches of a desert highway. The film open's, then comes full circle and close's with what to me was the weakest segment, The Way In and The Way Out directed by the group of filmmakers know as Radio Silence was a fairly baffling story that isn't really made any clearer by the end segment.

Well, they're going to try to stop you but you gotta say "fuck it" and keep moving. In the second chapter, Sirens, it is obvious that the family that picked up the White Tights were expecting all 4 girls, not 3 (Alex was missing). Recommend. But none of the stories are explained. Hospital scene was cool, monsters were rad.
