Movie Reviews

This is the bottom people, right here, and I found it

"Don't let the "true story" on the cover fool you. This is about as real as professional wrestling. If it was even remotely true everyone in Africa would be a half-caste (form being bitten) Its very generic. It has a blair witch feel to it, although, not even that good. Terrible movie. Poor editing (maybe on purpose) but most of all its boring. I literally got so bored I was getting sleepy, so I decided to skim the dvd chapters, and you can test this if you like, the majority of the chapters have the same 6-8 people sitting around a table, talking!! That's the whole movie....go ahead, skip death, at least not before I shut it off! On my top 10 worst list. The people that made this should be dragged out onto the street and stoned"

"...guaranteed to kill your sensibilities. If ever there was a movie with low-budget Hollywood cynicism at its core, this is it. SEE whiny, self-indulgent anti-heroes prove why Americans are so widely hated (sneering, mealy-mouthed pc-yet contemptuous of anything not smacking of 7 figure California materialism and white bread bias)around the world. Indeed, the whole movie reeked of some mutated brand of "white man's burden."
The heroes were unlikable. The "half-caste" monster was reminiscent of a refugee from a "cost cutter" version of "Cats." The script was plodding, dull, and worst of all, dishonest.

The only scene I viewed with growing excitement was the infants' graveyard excavation scene. I PRAYED that the writer/director of this turkey would show a flicker of conscience, dig a deep, deep pit, apologise for this travesty,put a pistol to his head, fire, then topple in...but not before reciting an 1-800 number for pissed-off customers to call for a triple refund and free gallon of mouthwash."

"This movie sucks. Plain and simple. If there is any other movie in the store... ANY OTHER MOVIE, get it instead...

This is a hard review to write, because I can normally find one or two things in any movie (no matter how bad) that I like. Take Redneck Zombies for instance. Bad movie, but some funny stuff in it.

Half-Caste is really bad.

Imagine the worst reality TV show out there, add a little bit of horror, surrounded by a lot of stupid subplots... and stupid shots...

The true horror of this movie is when you eventually drag yourself to the end of it, and you turn back and realize how much time in your life you just lost and you'll never be able to get it back again... AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!"
A Half-Aste Effort

"In this horrible attempt at a Blair Witch mockumentary, a bunch of people go to Africa to investigate a creature called the Half-Caste. It's pretty obvious that there was no script to speak of, and that everything was improvised. That can work if you have good actors, which this film didn't.

This movie tries to gain points for originality by exploring a more obscure myth and an exotic culture. As a result, there are a lot of scenes out in the bush where characters do "quirky African stuff" like eating elephant dung. There is also some pretty good footage of lions eating (from a National Geographic perspective) but there's not a single scare in the whole movie.

If you've seen Cannibal Holocaust or the Blair Witch Project, this movie will hold no surprises for you, and you can probably watch better lion footage on the Discovery Channel.

Definitely a Half- Aste effort.

A note to the filmmakers: guys, do us all a favor and next time save the "How I spent my African Vacation" home movie for your family and close friends. Nobody else wants to see it.
