Movie Reviews

Scary and frightening!
Dee J. | 03/28/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've enjoyed seeing James Dumont in a number of films and in TV shows like CSI. He was great and "scarily" believable in The Cellar Door. I'm looking forward to the DVD bonus features!"
Pointless and boring low budget horror flick.

"The Cellar Door is yet another boring and tedious straight to video horror film that doesn't go anywhere. The reason why I gave it 2 stars is because the film had an interesting idea and concept that could have worked if it had a better script and acting, in this film the acting was completely laughable but I have seen much worse. The actor who played the serial killer was not good enough and wasn't believable he wasn't right for the part and the victim did a couple of stupid moves, I hoped that the film would get better but it didn't. The first 10 minutes were pretty good and intense but then it all goes downhill after that, the story's about a woman named Rudy who gets kidnapped by an overweight psychopath who locks her up in a cage where she is forced to listen to his stories (this part was really boring) and eat some of his food. She tries to escape several times but can't and then gets tortured for a while, Rudy realises that she's not the first woman to be imprisoned by this madman and then tries to outsmart the serial killer by doing whatever she can in order to stay alive. The problem with this film is that it doesn't become interesting until the end and by that time its just too late, there was abit of gore and a few stabbings but nothing thats disturbing like one woman at the supermarket getting beat up by a baseball bat but the rest of the gore scenes were disappointing and the film didn't have any scares in it, half of the time I just felt really bored. I suggest that you watch something else cause this felt like a waste of time."
Going somewhere!

"An artist that needs a bigger budget that's all i have too say! Watch and you will understand.Good flick!"
Better Than Captivity But Worse Than Hostel
Captain Insanity | NY | 09/01/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A low-budget serial killer flick that focus's on the relationship between captor & captured instead of torture.
Almost the entire movie takes place in Captain Psycho's basement,
so there isn't much in the way of scenery, just a cage.
But it's a nice cage.
He "got an A in shop class".
A cage where he keeps women.
Well one woman at a time, till they die, or try to escape.
And during their luxurious stay he collectss pieces of them.
(You don't want to know what that means, but it's not what you think)
The movie starts off as he loses his last venture,
and continues as he finds, stalks, and captures a new obsession (all of this is in the first 5 -10 minutes)
The rest of the movie plays out like a less outlandish, infinitely better version of Captivity,
No bizarre torture scenes, no high tech surveillance equipment, or twist endings you could see a mile off shore.
Just a psycho, an altar, a beautiful woman, and a cage.
Not a terrible amount of gore.
There's enough though to keep a gorehound's appetite sated, but not enough to be considered overly gory.
Like another reviewer here stated; the creator of this flick is someone who deserves a bigger budget to work with.
There is a very minimalist approach to this story, but it's one that works.
This movie makes a loaf out of a slice of bread.
In both the positive (budget) and negative (plot) sense.
At the very least it's worth a rental.
A purchase if you like torture flicks.

MORAL OF THE STORY:
If you love something.... lock it your basement.
If it stays it'll love you forever,
If it dies it was never meant to be.
