Movie Reviews

Kinda boring
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Not much to brag about 'cos everything was telegraphed by amateur storytelling. Just a lacksidaisical slasher flick made on a home movie budget. Some of the girls are pretty enough. The actors seem to hit their marks and speak their lines; there's no real emotional interest coming from the screen and there won't be any coming from the audience either. Passable way to waste a rainy afternoon. I got it as soon as it came out because it was from 1-Shot and they usually do better than this."
Stunningly awful

"I give this movie one star because there's no "zero stars" option. It looks as if they took a handicam and shot an after-school project. It blows my mind that this thing got an actual release with the sub-par acting, god-awful dialogue, and below average editing. Not a bad movie per se, if you're just out of high school and looking for something to do in your spare time. But an actual DVD release? Holy crap! Emphasis on crap. Save yourselves and avoid this turkey like the plague!"
A for Effort, D for results

"After eagerly waiting for this dvd to become available I was all set for some serious delirium and gore. What I got was tedium and bore. There's some serious sound problems with this shot on digital video production. The characters sound like they are talking through hollow tubes or something. Maybe the sound problems wouldn't be too noticable except that your eyes and ears start to wander after about 20 minutes and you start to spot some of the technical blunders because you've given up on the story. As a gore film you can plainly spot all the amateur theatrical effects so nothing comes off as believeable. This would make a commendable school project film but it barely rates as a marketable professional effort. There's no nudity or anything objectionable, except for the story."
Even professionals start off as amateurs

"I see a few very harsh reviews of Short Cut Road and I remember what my mom used to tell me about not throwing stones. So I won't. This isn't a good film by any stretch of the imagination and having the director's friends write raving reviews only looks pathetic but that doesn't mean that this below-average production doesn't have its good points. It does show that anyone can make a movie even with no directorial talent, no decent actors and no original story to tell. It's kind of like the old Andy Hardy movies when someone says, "Let's put on a show." It's like this director said the same thing, saved up 500 bucks and starting aiming his camera at his friends and eventually some kind hearted distributor got him a dvd release. What it goes to show is that anybody out there can still make a movie. All we customers ask is that the next person who tries it is someone with a little more talent. For learning purposes only (as in "what not to do"), watch Short Cut Road if you get the chance. But don't waste any money buying it."
