Plot:
TWISTED SISTERS is a dark thriller dealing with the personal struggle between two twins. Jennifer was given everything a girl could wish for. Norah learned to survive on nothing. Now it is time for the tables to turn. Locating, stalking and mimicking the life of her sister, Norah decides it is time that she had it all -- and no one will get in her way!

My Thoughts:
I have discovered this director by chance when I have blind buying one of his other movie « Penetration Angst ». This was one of the better unknow movie that I've bought and it give me some hope for the actual cinema. So I've ordered one of his other film sooner this month so this is the one that I review today. But I will certainly make this for Penetration Angst too.

This movie doesn't have the most original story (the twin sisters motive is kind of cliché), but at least the film doesn't say that it revolutionize the cinema (as an hack like Eli Roth pretend with Hostel). This fact is not that much important and the movie works because of the way Horsey play the 2 roles. Fiona Horsey is a relatively new actress this film is her third one and with this one and Angst, I can say that she had a great future (probably more in Europe than America, but that's not a bad thing because the American industry can't recognize talent). She is the most perfect exemple of the « girl next door » look (just watch my new avatar) and her accent sounds really sexy to me (It's a British accent, yes a British accent can be sexy). She can act too!! Her performance is great she completly change from one twin to another, we almost think that she had a real twin (it's not the case I've check just to be sure). Paul Conway is good too and he almost play the same character that he play in Angst (he is against after Miss Horsey, but this time he is a police inspector not a deceive lover). The weak point in the cast is Andrew Southern who play the lover of Miss Horsey, I've found is performance bland.

I also like the use of the reflexion motive, many time Miss Horsey reflexion is shown on a mirror or a metal object. Later the same effect happen but through a windows when she looks at her twins. The special effects are well done, just one exemple one man is kill by a fireworks place where you really don't want it to be (forgot to say that the twins hate men).

I really recommand this one, a very good British/German coproduction. You can try  « Penetration Angst » too, since it is better than this one and really original.

Smallville Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Season 8: Disc 3

9. ABYSS
Memory purge. Clark seeks JOR-EL'S help as BRAINIAC progressively wipes Chloe's memories and replaces them with Kryptonian code. Jor-El assists...and offers an ominous forecast about what's to come.

My Thoughts:
A good episode. I enjoyed most all of it. There is one part I didn't care for... even though I know it don't last long and know that it makes the story more interesting... but I didn't care for Clark deciding not to let Chloe remember about his abilities and Krypton.

My Rating:

10. BRIDE
It's a beautiful day for a wedding at Kent Farm and Chloe has never looked more radiant. Lana is an unexpected guest. Also unexpected is an interloper of profound evil and power – a being determined to make sure Chloe is not Jimmy's bride.

My Thoughts:
In this episode we get our first glimps of Doomsday. We also find out a little something about Lex as well. And we see a familiar face come to Chloe and Jimmy's wedding. It is a good episode. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

My Rating:

11. LEGION
SATURN GIRL. LIGHTNING LAD. COSMIC BOY. Heroes from the 31st century arrive to rescue Clark from the attack of the PERSUADER. They also insist there's only one way for Clark to stop Brainiac, who now totally inhabits Chloe – kill Chloe!

My Thoughts:
This episode I really enjoyed. As I have said before I love when other superheroes arrive in smallville. And even though I am no familiar with any of the ones in this episode... it was still a lot of fun to watch.
