Movie Reviews

Won't win any awards, but VERY watchable
Christopher Roesch | Rochester, NY | 04/11/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"For a direct-to-dvd "B"-type movie, this was a pretty decent movie. Some of the cast might even have a future... The basic premise of the movie is that a high school (where students have a way of disappearing) is in fact a portal to hell, or something like that...Most of the young cast is pretty decent, although I think plot is somewhat unimportant to this movie, which at times borders on a soft-core homoerotic flick. Not that that's a bad thing...Corey Haim fans, rejoice, the lead actor bears a more than slight resemblance to the 80's bad-boy. Overall, I think it's worth a watch...You might even end up buying I plan to..."
Avoid at all costs

"David DeCoteau's _Sixth Sense_ ripoff is dull beyond belief. Even the requisite beefcake shots look shoddy.Like many of DeCoteau's more recent films, _The Frightening_ was filmed in widescreen and released on DVD in full-frame format. Image cropping is noticeable and sound is just plain bad.Avoid."
Not the best of the genre

"This film was ok for what it is, but not DeCoteau's best. Not nearly enough boys-in-boxer-briefs scenes! If you're looking for a flick in the homo-horror genre, definitely get Voodoo Academy (the DVD); it's the best of the lot. Brotherhood 1 and 2 are both okay."
Totally Unexpected

"At first I thought the movie was way too predictable, but then I thought 'oh there'll be something good at the end' and then I started thinking up some things. Usually I'm right on it, but I did not expect this ending. The ending made the whole movie, not to mention the really, really cute guys, especially
