| Harbinger: Wait......wtf?!
When I hear that a movie is award winning it doesn't give the film any additional credibility in my eyes. Awards mean nothing, you'd be amazed how many films in the IMDB top 250 I think are awful! In fact a lot of the top 10 are in my opinion!

Harbinger is an award winning (Yawn) fantasy/horror/thriller tale about a small latino family who move into the middle of nowhere for a break after their daughter is involved in an accident. The daughter hates it and wants to leave and rapidly it becomes apparent that her fears were justified.

Harbinger has a great little cast of mostly unknowns, the biggest name is Robert Rodriguez's sister Tina. It's lead is a really promising young lady by the name of Paeka Campos who I hope goes onto have a fantastic career based on her performance here.

I was gripped, despite a couple of eyebrow raising moments it had my attention and I was curious to see where it was going. A slow burn it's enjoyable regardless, that is until the end.

When something "Happens" it happens fast, makes up the last 10 minutes of the film (If that) and is bafflingly awful. I don't just mean bad, I mean just random unexplained nonsense that came out of nowhere and fitted the movie about as much as if Tinky Winky the Teletubby saved the day at the end of the new 2018 Halloween. It's ridiculously bad!

I was really enjoying the film up until this point and still can't get my head around what I saw. Was this some kind of joke? An April fools gag? Making a great film and then ending it on such an embarassing note?

Such a shame, cannot believe the stupidity I just witnessed.

The Good:

Tina Rodriguez and Paeka Campos

Well scored

The Bad:

I can't like a character if they get their jollies from killing things for fun

WTF was that ending?!?!?! No, seriously

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

It WAS an April fools joke?...................right?..........RIGHT!?

One of the writers needs stringing up by the genitals and used as a pinata, I don't care which one but it needs to happen to send a message to all future screenplay writers that this is NOT acceptable
