Day 8: Convergence (2015) 1h 40m
I feel like Convergence was Netflix letting me know not to let my guard down. I made my mistake yesterday with Baskin and assuming it wasn't going to be good, but it showed me wrong. For Convergence I thought it was starting out really well and then it just suddenly shit the bed for me.
Don't get me wrong, I love a good crazy God-cult bad guy and realms existing between the worlds. My issue comes when they felt the need to take what has been a really good concept with the movie and suddenly introduce the "real world" and do so with ghost hunters. It's such a fuck you to the whole battle between "good" and "perceived good" that exists in this purgatory realm. It cheapened it for me.
I had a much longer review for this film all typed up and ready to go but I deleted it to write this. Why? Because this film doesn't deserve any form of recap. You don't need to describe a turd to someone to get the picture. We all know a piece of shit when we see it.
I give Convergence 2 abandoned hospitals out of 5:
