Summer of 84 (2018)
Not Rated | 1h 45min | Drama, Horror, Mystery | 10 August 2018 (USA)
After suspecting that their police officer neighbor is a serial killer, a group of teenage friends spend their summer spying on him and gathering evidence, but as they get closer to discovering the truth, things get dangerous.
This was a great movie and I loved every second of it… Growing up I watched lots of movies and tv shows with my favorite movies always being the coming of age classics: “Goonies” and “Stand By Me”. Later on in life, I always looked for coming of age movies that could meet my standards. Even with newer movies like “The Edge of Seventeen” (2016) I still wasn’t very satisfied. For the first time in a while, I walked away from a movie theatre actually satisfied and my expectations and standards were fully met.
If I could sum this movie up in a few words for anyone interested in watching, it would be; A coming of age movie with a similar nostalgic feel of Stand By Me and the Goonies with a thrilling storyline that’ll have you on the edge of your seat…
