Anything for Jackson Review

Shudder's been cranking out a lot of exclusive horrors lately. Some are good, most aren't. They seem to walk the line most of the time, avoiding anything too shocking or controversial. The glaring problem with this is it goes against the grain of what so many horror fans love about the genre. Shocking and controversial work to create that squirmy uncomfortable feeling that we all crave. Anything for Jackson nailed the shock factor perfectly and immediately became the best Shudder exclusive I've seen in a long time.

The gist of this movie is an old couple who, after years of grieving, turn to a satanic church for help in resurrecting their grandson who they lost in a car accident. That's really all you need to know, and honestly all you should know going into this one. It's not the story that makes the movie, it's the visual experience it pulls you into. 

Anything for Jackson is kind of like The Conjuring in style, if the Warren's were satanic killers. It's also a little bit like Evil Dead in the way they accidentally summon the wrong demon using a necronomicon. And it's even like The Darkness in how evil spirits cling to the living. Finally, like The Conjuring, and a couple other movies in The Conjuring Universe, the demons are super creative in both how they look and how they evolve. 

And that's pretty much all that should be said about it. If you like this style of movie, just watch it and go in as blind as possible. 

Worth Watching?

Yes, definitely. Anything for Jackson is quality modern horror.
