Sometimes, low-budget films suck. I’ll just start with that. They do, sometimes. There are, however, exceptions. Like this movie I just watched, called The Encounter.
Synopsis? Five strangers on an abandoned country back road in the middle of a storm find that the road is flooded. They suggest waiting at the diner they passed a few miles back, which officer DeVille, who told them that the road is impassable, insists doesn’t exist.
At this diner, they meet a man whose nametag reads ‘Jesus’.
Jesus: “Most people pronounce it ‘Gee-sus.”
It was very funny.
So he knows everything about them, and it feels very creepy for all of them. And I can’t tell you any more without spoiling it, so I’ll just tell you what I thought of it.
It was a very good movie. Of course, it’s not going to win any Oscars for acting or special effects, but the writing was excellent and the message was amazing.
Also! There were some really cool phrases and whatnot that you’ll probably hear me mention in later posts.
Five out of five for content and five out of five for delivery. Go watch it.
