Oh what a bleak and dreary day it is! Perfect weather for curling up and enjoying a good psychological thriller wouldn't you say? So what a better movie to watch than SE7EN.

Sorry guys, this one is not on Netflix. 

Released in 1995 this movie is directed by David Fincher and has an all star cast including Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kevin Spacey; so already you know this movie is going to be good!

The premise of this movie is simple: two detectives must hunt down a serial killer who uses the seven deadly sins as his modus operandi.

Now for those of you out there who didn't go to Sunday School or were not beaten by nuns with rulers let me explain the Seven deadly sins.
They are:
Lust - an intense desire; most think of this one as excessive sexual want
Gluttony - over indulgence or consumption of anything to the point of waste.
Greed - excessive desire and pursuit of material possessions.
Sloth - both physical and spiritual laziness
Wrath - uncontrollable feelings of anger and hatred
Envy - Discontent over someone traits, status, abilities, or rewards.
Pride -  the desire to be more attractive or important than others (often considered the original and most serious of the seven deadly sins.)

The deaths they have planned for these sins are creative and gruesome. Oh and when they get to Sloth, watch out.

Oh hey, did I mention you could make this movie into a drinking game? Yeah, take a shot every time some says the word 'fuck'. You will be dead by the end of the movie ...you glutton!

IMDB gives this movie an 8.7 out of 10, Rotten Tomatoes gives it 84% with a 93% audience approval rating. I am going to give it a well deserved 5 out of 5 skulls. This movie is so original and innovative with its plot and ending that I will guarantee that if you have not yet seen this movie, you will enjoy something about it.

I remember working one morning stocking the shelves and we were all talking about our favorite horror and thriller movies and I said Se7en to which there was a chorus of "What's in the box!? WHAT'S IN THE BOX!!!?!?!?!"

To which I leave you all with this:
Hope you enjoy it.

Until next time,
Sleep tight and don't let the zombies bite!
