Shawn's Top 30 Films - #22: Seven

Man you guys…Seven is a fucked up movie. I mean really, have you seen this shit? Shit’s fucked up man.

The idea of a serial killer using the seven deadly sins as the basis for his murders sounds like some hokey Criminal Minds shit, but wow do they ever make it work here. It manages to be ridiculously disturbing without actually showing you any of the grisly acts in process. You only ever see the aftermath but your imagination fills in the gruesome blanks. If you’ve seen the movie, you also already know why the ending is memorable. What’s in the fucking box indeed sir. The whole thing is a god damn masterpiece and really shows why director David Fincher has the reputation he does.
