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 it...as I plan to..."
Avoid at all costs
Timothy Hulsey | Charlottesville, VA United States | 11/19/2002
(1 out of 5 stars)

"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
T. Kevin | Arlington, VA USA | 11/01/2002
(2 out of 5 stars)

"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
Aya | Peoria, IL United States | 04/06/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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
