Movie Reviews

A Solid Slasher with more Water than Blood
Captain Insanity | NY | 08/24/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Probably the most solid slasher flick I've seen in awhile.
(especially considering the lack of slashing)
It's an Autrian slasher flick, (so it's in german, if you speak german)
though surprisingly every song on the soundtrack appears to be in English.
If you don't like subtitles, that's alright, 'cause it comes dubbed,
and can I just say.. I don't remember ever hearing a better dubbing job.

For those who know slashers:
It's acts like a 90's slasher (Scream, I Know What You Did, Urban Legend, etc.)
without any of the humor.
Picture those movies if their puppy just got hit by a missile.
It's not funny like "Hatchet", it's a lot more serious.
It's not overly gory like "Laid to Rest", (it does have it's moment though)
It's slower and more involving than both.
And it's probably 14 thousand times more engaging than "Cold Prey" could ever hope to be.
But it's not getting nearly as much love as any of the aforementioned.
The only issue I can see some people having with this flick, is that it drags it's feet at some points.
All in all I'd say this slasher "should" be the epitome of the term "sleeper"

It's about a group of friends who all receive a message on their phone
saying that each will be dead in 3 days.
... they pay no mind to it... 'til one of them disappears.
Yes it's a vengeance plot we've seen before, but this time around it has;
actual characters, with real character development,
played by actors & actresses who can actually act,
some gore (1 scene in particular is brutal),
believable dialogue, excellent cinematography,
and for whatever reason the director seems either,
obsessed with water,
or is bashing you over the head with foreshadowing.
Every other scene is of water, and practically every death involves it.
But there is method to this madness.
There is method.

Keep your friends close.. really close.. or they might disappear.
