Well, to be honest, that's the thrill of watching horror films. Whatever form the bad guy takes, he's always almost impossible to stop. Imagine if Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th could've been killed with one bullet. Then that means things just wouldn't be the same. It wouldn't make us uncomfortable enough to say that it was a good horror film. Now when it comes to the best action-horror movies of all time, it always involves good guys with big guns and blunt weapons. Someone who could really take the fight to the enemy and not just be another tally on the death count.

So, what makes a good action-horror movie? It's a little bit of this and that. A combination of scares or intensity that you'd see in a horror film. Now add a bit of fighting or brutally that you'd see in an action film and voila! You've got yourself the makings of a great action-horror movie. You probably think it's that simple, right? No siree! It actually takes a lot of creativity to make a film that's exciting and will give you a good scare at the same time.

    "All I can say is civil rights meets The Stepford Wives in a very unexpected way. I loved the lead character, Chris. Additionally, Katherine Keenan picks very interesting roles. I should have realized what was coming when I realized she was in the film. I was uncomfortable during the whole movie because of the inability of the white characters to speak to Chris as a man rather than a black man and treat him like a human being rather than a black human being"
