Se7en (1995)


Trailer

You're a fucking t-shirt, at best.

So basically: Veteran Detective Sommerset is about to retire and Detective Mills has transferred to take his place. Before he leaves, however, the two are paired together for one last murder. This one murder reveals itself to be the first of a serial killer’s message to the masses. The man was punished for one of the Seven Deadly Sins – Gluttony – and the victims continue the pattern: Sloth, Lust, Greed, Pride, Envy, and Wrath. Detective Sommerset pushes back his retirement in order to solve the crimes and discover the motive of the killer

I was really looking forward to watching this film and when I finally did … I gotta say, I was expecting more. I like my serial killer movies a bit more messed up. But, that’s just me. Aside from my disappointment, it is a good movie. It’s basically Saw, but with a biblical twist. John Doe totally trumps Jigsaw. Anyone who says otherwise is lame.

I don’t have much to say, mostly because I’m supposed to be studying for exams … But, this is definitely one to check out. I don’t it should be this high, tho.

Ziggi seal of approval!

  1. *laughs* You like your serial killers more messed up? Please enlighten me to the "More messed up serial killers" than Kevin Spacey's character. I mean aside from Buffalo Bill and his enchanting tuck dance. I really just adore the movie. Love Morgan Freeman, love Brad Pitt in a you love to want to smack him way, love Kevin Spacey. Love this movie. Though, I knew Brad Pitt would be Wrath...Which was nice, cause I rarely ever get the twist :p

    And also yes, Saw was stupid. "Oh I don't like your shoes. BARBED WIRE ROOM FOR YOU!" Jig Saw is just a dickwad.

    Is K-Pax on this list? It should be. a
