The Story Line

Lee Weathers works as a risk-management specialist in one genetic-engineering company known as SynSect. She arrived at the rural site hosting the L-9 project, the artificial individual with nanotechnology-impart synthetic DNA called as Morgan. These hybrid biological organisms with the ability for autonomous decision creating and sophisticated touching responses is wittier than humans and quickly matures, talking and win a month and bodily a teenager in spite of being a five year old.

The precise and cold Weathers, she insisted on naming Morgan “it”, is at the spot to appraise the project after the psychologist evaluated Morgan, right after she applied a pen to cut Doc Kathy Grieff in her eye. Over a dinner with the group of eight researchers, Weathers and the project leaders Doc Lui Cheng and Doc Simon Ziegler discussed an event in Helsinki linking Cheng wherein 21 SynSect investigators were murdered in one hour by the crude prototypes.

Lee discovered that Morgan harassed Grieff right after she was forbidden from leaving the room, the glass cell, right after killing the deer impaled on the fallen tree while still outside. These scientists have lifted Morgan from birth right after the two failed attempts, also most considered her to become their child; Grieff defended Morgan to Weathers in spite of her injury, and Doc Amy Menser wanted to start again taking her on trips. The latter swear Morgan to bring her to the nearby lake which she described as wonderful; her behavioral therapist comprehends that Morgan, ins spite her physical appearance, intellects and abilities, emotionally innocent. Although Morgan considered Cheng to become her mother, the researcher is pessimistic regarding the project; she finished the outings because, Weathers was told by Cheng, it is mean to represent Morgan to the world she will not be allowed to come.

The Writers Viewpoint

Sorry to say this, but I believe that I have to say this for the benefit of the film and to have a much better improvements. First, the ending was a bit disappointing and if you do not understand it too, maybe you are like me that is expecting for more. Second, I felt that more connection is needed in between the audience and Morgan. I found her clips as a sweet and warming child. I even feel the sympathy towards her right after she attacked her initial and next victims. However, during its end, I felt that I lacked sympathy in her character, right after she turned out to be more out of the hands.

D-Railed Review
by Chris Hlad

It’s that time of year again.  The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting colder, and the calendar is counting down to Halloween.  What better way to get ready for Samhain than a scary movie? 

The answer to that question is nothing.  Nothing sets the mood for the season as well as a good, scary movie, and I was fortunate enough to get a sneak peek at the latest Dale Fabrigar film / Suzanne DeLaurentiis Productions,  “D-Railed.”

Normally, horror movies are color by number affairs and predictable.  That’s okay if the movies are done right.  Sometimes it’s fun (yes, fun) to sit back and watch a brainless teen walk into the woods alone.  Or into that house everybody says to stay away from.  Or have random sex which is always a death sentence.

Sometimes it’s fun to watch a horror movie that challenges the mind.  The one’s that aren’t so, so predictable — which is where I’d categorize this movie.  

Sort of.

Is it possible to see a movie that provokes thought while at the same time being, dare I say, campy, while being fun and scary too? Rare, but yes.  
That’s where I’d put “D-Railed,” an early Halloween treat.

In the first act, we are introduced to a colorful cast of characters who board a Murder Mystery Train, hoping to have a good meal, adult beverages, and a mystery to solve.  

At least that was the plan.

As the cast of the Murder Mystery Train are introduced, and the minds of the passengers are somehow read and made public, something bad happens and the dinner theater body count starts. 

 And it only goes off the rails from there.  Literally.

The tension builds, the remaining cast are left to fend for themselves against a mystery creature with razor-sharp claws, and the real body count rises and…

No spoilers.

I will tell you that the final act is where the questions are raised.  What is right?  What is wrong.  Do we chase death or does death chase us?  That’s up to the cast and ultimately the audience to decide.

This is a movie with brains, blood, and rich characters that makes you question everything you’re watching.  But most importantly, it’s fun! It’s a movie that doesn’t take itself too seriously, and that’s why it works. Sure, there may have been a few hiccups during production that caused some minor flaws in the film, but for a movie that was filmed in twelve days between two locations, Los Angeles and Philadelphia, it wasn’t a distraction. During the screening, people jumped, screamed, laughed, and at the end applauded.  And isn’t that what it’s all about?

With its train setting, characters battling each other and a swamp creature, I think this film falls into its own genre.  Agatha Creature, if you will.  (Yes, I am going to copyright this term).

Indulge in this Halloween treat. You won’t be sorry.

Film Title: D-Railed

Synopsis: When a train derails into the river, its surviving passengers are faced with a grim challenge… die in the wreckage or face the unknown that awaits them in the murky waters below.

After Dom tumbles and injured his knee, Hutch consulted the map of the group and settles in the alternate way into the woods which will take half of their time. The group started to encounter mysterious phenomena, with a brokenhearted deer and runes stamped on trees. As evening approaches, they come upon the rundown cabin and then stayed there for that evening. The cabin is almost empty, save an odd timber effigy in an attic shaped just like the human torso, with the antlers for hands. In the evening, everyone is plagued by terrible, and Luke woke up with the odd set of stab wounds over his chest, and then Phil is obliged to pray to effigy in the cabin. They go on with their travels into the woods in attempting to locate their way out.

Luke keeps back with Dom, influencing him to run together with him. They discovered the dead body of Phil, impaled on the tree, and the path of torches heading to the little village. Seeking protection, they stumble to the cabin but were knocked down unconscious by unseen dwellers.

The Writers Viewpoint

The movie is just awesome. It is horrifying with a dark storyline and credible characters. These days, this movie is already considered a good horror and for some that watch it, considered it a masterpiece with amazing nature style. I urge to say, the movie is one of the top monster movies to watch for. It is included in the top ten horror movies and the direction is great too.

Although, the finale could have been better, but it was thrilling and spooky, and psychologically arousing and the movie content is impressive when you are watching it now in some streaming video sites.

The movie is a psychological horror film from the screenplay by Efthymis and Lanthimos Filippou with director Yorgos Lanthimos. The story is from the prehistoric Greek play Iphigenia and about the cardiac surgeon that secretly become friends with a teenage boy that has a connection to the past. He presented the boy to the family, who started to fall strangely ill.

The Cast List:
  • Colin Farrell played as Steven Murphy, Kim and Bob’s father and Anna’s husband
  • Nicole Kidman played as Anna Murphy, Kim and Bob’s mother and Steven’s wife
  • Barry Keoghan played as Martin, the teenager that Steven met
  • Sunny Suljic played as Bob Murphy, Kim’s brother and Anna and Steven’s son
  • Raffey Cassidy played as Kim Murphy, Bob’s sister and Anna and Steven’s daughter
  • Alicia Silverstone played as Martin’s mother
  • Bill Camp played as Matthew, the anesthesiologist
The Story Line:

Steven Murphy, the specialist cardiothoracic surgeon, finished an open heart operation, and then goes on to a diner and there he met the teenager boy known as Martin. The accurate nature of their connection was unexplained. Afterward, Steven returned to their house to Anna, his wife, and with Kim and Bob, the kids. The following day, Steven revealed his bond with Martin, claiming that he is Kim’s schoolmate, when Martin suddenly came to talk with Steven at a hospital. Later, Steven privately told Anna that the father of Martin, died from a car incident ten years ago, and that he takes the interest with this boy in assisting him grieve. Through the suggestion of Steven, Martin came to the Murphy family for dinner and Kim seemed mainly taken with him.

Martin returned them the favor by requesting Steven to come to his mother’s home and have dinner. Right after the meal, he tries to leave, and Martin insisted for him to stay and watched a movie with the family. Martin left them through halfway of the movie, and his mother creates the sexual proceeds with Steven, who rapidly rebuffs her and then goes home. Within the following days, Martin’s demanded Steven’s more time and it grows frequently and desperately, but Steven did not reply. Just one sunrise when Bob was awakened and discovered that cannot feel the legs, he became paralyzed. Anna and Steven rushed him to the hospice, and wherein the full neurological tests revealed that nothing is totally wrong with him. Although he briefly recovered, Bob was still unable to walk. Although the elder Murphys lean to Bob, Martin meets Kim for a date.

The Writers View:

The movie has a full brilliant metaphors, and if you are aware of the Greek mythology with its history to comprehend most of it. The movie is not a comedy or a horror film. It is a thriller drama with strong religious traces. It is the mixture between that Binding of Isaac with a story of Job. In whatever mystic being is accountable for grueling the two kids have that moral lesson that is well described like that “eye for an eye”. This is something that humanity would have conquered in the coming 2000 years. The picture ends with a completed happy finale, where a father will simply kill a member of their family. This really works in the implications that a punishment stops.
