Movie Reviews

Dont waste the money
David T. Scanlon | 01/27/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"this movie sucked big time for a b movie. here are the reasons

1)the camera work sucked. it looked like it was done by an amateur. there was a seen where it was spinning around alot. i felt like i was goin to hurl.
2)the acting was acceptable but definitely not the best. ive seen better b horror movies. you can tell that the person doing casting just picked decent looking people mainly dudes.
3) the plots where horrible. through half the movie it was the 3 guys talking about what the host was goin to do for the rest of his life. then the a small segment was the host being chased by the two guests. finally the host was bound to the tub while the viewer is puzzled why he is being tortured by the 2 guests.

there isnt any real plus about this movie unless u like to see a quick seen of a Paris Hilton-esque type of home movie on this feature."
Good little film but one suspects the film makers have been

"OK, so we have five 5 star reviews here on Amazon. Can it be coincidence that there are also five 10 star reviews on IMDB?

Seems someone may have a vested interest in hyping up this film.

Regardless, it is good low budget picture. The sort of film I'll be glad to have in my collection in 20 years time when it's been forgotten.

It has suspense, passable acting and a good premise. Liked the ending too.

Well done to the film makers for a good job on small budget but please, let the quality of the film speak for itself (if indeed it is the film makers posting the top rated reviews).

Mind you, I bought it based on those reviews so they did their job!"
Good Till The Last Frame

"This was a good movie, but the ending was not an ending at all. I would actually give this one a 2.75. The mental torture was good, but there was a bit to much talking. As opposed to Jason, Freddy and Michael Myers, this could actually really happen, which added to the suspense. I love the way the director switched sympathies. At first , I looked down on the main character because of the way he dehumanized women, but soon after the two villains showed their true colors and began to torture him I kind of forgot about what a dog he was. This was a pretty good movie. I am still waiting on the ending though. It wasn't given to us in this movie."
Not a bad little film...

"You know, I didn't read any of the reviews before purchasing this film. It was only after I bought it that I checked out the reviews. I thought I had made a mistake. With the exception of 5 VERY SUSPICIOUS 5 star reviews, there were 2 one star ones. This worried me, but I sat down to watch it anyway, since I had already purchased it. While watching it, I was pleasantly surprised. It really wasn't a bad little film. For being so low-budget, it had pretty decent acting from the 3 leads, a good story line, and some really creative camera work. I think there's some promise here for these new film makers. Despite some very obvious plot holes, some very corny music at times, an unsympathetic protagonist, a not very believable ending, and a lack of brutality (I wish the film makers had had the b*lls to be brutal. It would have been much better), there was good atmosphere, good lighting, some genuine suspense and tension, a good flow to it, and a sense of style.

Filmed in black and white, the story is simple, but effective. A young man wakes from a drunken stupor (with no memory of the night before) the morning after a huge birthday party thrown for him at his parent's mountain cabin. While sifting through the mess, he discovers 2 sleeping party goers from the night before that he doesn't recognize. He wakes them up, and they offer to help him clean up in exchange for a ride back to the resort lodge, but they soon start showing aggression, and their conversation gets very strange. A little too strange for the young man (they talk about making snuff films), so he asks them to leave. They refuse, then things get out of hand.

It's a bit unclear if these men really know the young man, but they do seem to, though he doesn't recognize them. I read here that some people thought that they torture the man for no reason, but they did talk about making snuff films earlier, so, to me, that explains it, considering what their plans turn out to be. Though there was actually no "torture" to speak of, they do torment him. I wish the film makers had gone all the way with actual scenes of torture, but I understand that making movies is very expensive, so I can forgive small oversights. And yes, sometimes things happen for no apparent reason, making almost any situation believable to some extent.

All in all, I enjoyed watching this little film. It's far from perfect, but you can't expect perfection from small indie no-budget films. If you're only used to seeing big-budget Hollywood films, *GAG*, you will definitely be disappointed, but if you keep an open mind and remember that you're watching an extremely low-budget film that someone put their heart AND money into, you might enjoy it, as I did. I recommend this film for indie film fans only. If you're not a fan of these types of films, you should probably avoid it. This film gets ***1/2 stars from me. Enjoy."
