Movie Reviews

Dead on Arrival
Christopher Hivner | Dallastown, PA USA | 09/22/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"A goth kid makes a crappy 5 minute movie that everyone laughs at so he goes nuts. He gets into a beef with a jock and takes off in his car being chased by the jock. Eventually goth kid drives over a cliff. One year later, the teachers and students who mocked him start dying, each one leaving a clue as to who will die next.

Now, forget you read all that because you are never going to want to sit through this dreck. I took the bullet for you. Stephen J. Cannell, who wrote Dead Above Ground, used to make cheesy tv shows like the A-Team and Rip Tide. The A-Team was Shakespeare compared to this movie. It has a plot so cliched and hackneyed a first year film student wouldn't write it. Atrocious dialog and God-awful acting round out this movie's demerits. Stay far away from this movie."
Makes you laugh!!

"Unfortunately, it's a horror movie, not a comedy, but it might as well be...I have one thought: I would think that, after hundreds of thousands of cliche, unbelievably predictable B horror movies have been made over and over, all following the same formulaic scripting, and all containing the same horrendous over-the-top cheeseball acting, that someone would say to these hopeless directors/producers, "gee, ya know, we've seen this before--about a bajillion times, and it still sucks!" This movie is BAD...very, very bad. One of the worst movies I have ever seen, and I usually enjoy bad horror movies. I think I may have even dropped a few IQ points having been subjected to this trash. The only thing that you may get out of it is the hilarity of making fun of it---this begs for the Mystery Science Theater 3000/Svengoolie treatment. Otherwise, a total waste of time. Just avoid it!"
Mysterious killer with an axe.

(1 out of 5 stars)

"Antonio Sabato Jr is the best actor in this film. It has a really stupid plot and ending. It's about a killer with an axe that offs his victims one by one. The motive behind this is that the spiky haired kid in this film is mistreated by all his classmates for his weird seance's and evil cults. His behavior is so strange that he makes the guidance counselor very nervous. After getting run off the road by one of his schoolmates, all his old classmates die one by one by this mysterious killer. While in the meanwhile, Antonio Sabato Jr (the detective) in this movie investigates and does a polygraph on everyone. There is not that much gore or nudity in this film and the ending was very bizarre. It was completely stupid."
CHEESY BUT NOT THAT BAD

"We have to remember that even though Stephen J. Cannell is the one we can hold responsible for THE A-TEAM, he also gave us the classic series WISE GUY. Now, DEAD ABOVE GROUND is certainly not in the same league, but it has some deft humorous moments and I found myself intrigued by just who was doing what to who. Where else can you find Corbin Bernsen being offed in the first ten minutes and having to run through a house screaming like a woman? Where else can you find THE WILD WILD WEST's Robert Conrad looking pathetically inept as a screenwriter? And poor Antonio Sabato, Jr., who really should stick to modeling underwear..and all in one movie. And once again, Cannell (who also appeared in THE CONTRACT) has a meaty role that proves he's not as fortunate as director Sydney Pollack in actually having any acting talent? All in one movie! It's no worse than the countless other "thrillers" we've seen, so I'm gonna be nice and give it three stars anyway."
