The Genius Club

What is it?

The 2006 American Christian-themed dramatic thriller movie The Genius Club.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

An unprecedented disaster is about to unfold, and in order to ensure the safety of all humankind, a group of high-profile thinkers selected for their stratospheric IQs must come up with a solution to all of the world’s problems over the course of one grueling night in writer/director Timothy A. Chey’s tense apocalyptic thriller.

My Thoughts

I saw most of this movie once years ago on television when my mom told me that there was movie playing on a certain Christian television station, and maybe she was wondering what it was.

I possibly looked at the program guide and found out what it was, I had never heard of the movie before, and I ended up watching it expecting that it was not going to be good enough to keep watching so I expected that I would change the channel after a minute or two.

To my surprise it held my attention enough to keep watching it, and I watched the rest of the movie and I did not hate it to my surprise; and I kind of liked it considering what it was.

It was one of those what-if scenario-like movies with a high-stakes situation, my memory of it is very unclear, but it was better than I had expected compared to the usual low-budget Christian movie like this; and what I do remember is that it was better than the trailer or I hope so unless my taste in movies was that bad back then.

Bonehill Road (2017)

Source: IMDb

What is it?

The 2017 horror thriller movie Bonehill Road by Todd Sheets.

What is it about?

This is how the IMDb describes this movie:

Emily and Eden Stevens escape one violent situation only to dive head first into another.

Terrified and alone they are stranded in the dark woods only to be chased into a horrific scene in a house or horrors.

They must work together to get out alive.

But what is worse?

What is on the inside or out?

—Amanda Payton

Final Thoughts

Me and my brother GC watched this movie after I saw a thumbnail of the movie cover online, we liked it better than the first review video above, but we did not like it as much as the second review video below.

The acting was the weakest part of this movie, but the practical effects (except for the face makeup for bruises et cetera) were surprisingly good for such a low-budget movie and they were surprisingly gory at times.

It was a very low-budget movie so we were not as judgmental toward it, some of the bad parts made us laugh in a way that made the movie better or more enjoyable to watch, and neither one of us hated it.

My brother GC liked it more than I did, but that is not surprising because he really likes werewolf movies.

The end,

The other day I saw a trailer for a somewhat surreal crazy unique-looking movie with Nicolas Cage and Andrea Riseborough called Mandy (2018):
