Scary Movie: The 33

Postby ohiocaver » Nov 17, 2015 6:20 pm

Forget Frankenstein and the like...if you want to give yourself nightmares, go see THE 33. It is the story of the 33 Chilean miners trapped underground for 69 days in 2010 and the effort to free them. Even if you don't think about it late into the night, I can guarantee you'll pause before walking (or crawling) into your next cave. It is based on the miners' book. The acting is good. The scenery was shot in other mines. It avoids dwelling on the Floyd Collins-esque marketing circus that developed around the Chilean incident, too, but it is in the movie. So is the political cynicism. Be sure to stay for the final bit during the credits when they spotlight each of the real miners. :bananabat:
