Black Water

This is a modern day horror movie that is truly scary. In fact it scared the crap out of me. Three friends go for a fishing trip and are terrorized by a killer crocodile. It doesn’t sound that scary I know, but the anticipation for most of the film will make your hair stand on edge. There are many scenes that are unrealistic but after all it a horror film what do you expect, reality? The acting is fine for the most part. It is over the top at times but then again most people act that way when scared. The music is good to and trully sets the stage for the scares. This film may seem like Jaws in a swamp but it is different. Much like Jaws the absence of the killer animal is what makes it so scary. Unlike Jaws it does not have an all-star cast. The cast however is very small only five people total and that includes the four victims. (and not the crocodile) This movie is guaranteed to scare that pants off of you and leave you yearning for more. This one hour and thirty-four minutes movie is one of the best horror movies I have scene in a long time and may be one of the best 21st century horror movies made to date. Grade A

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
