Movie Reviews

Gay horror?
Jim Straley | Abilene, TX USA | 05/20/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The dialogue was repetitive, the special effects almost non-existent, the actors, though attractive, behaved as though they hadn't been instructed what to do after a certain point and were just maintaining until further notice. It had potential, being gay myself and a horror fan, I had high hopes for such a film, but I never felt edge of my seat thrills, and there wasn't even one nude scene! I wouldn't have bought it had I been able to rent it first, and I wouldn't advise anyone to waste their money. I do hope the film makers make another attempt in this genre, but correct these areas when they do."
One of the worst gay films ever!
CoTiGiDa Min | Somewhere, Thailand | 07/02/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"One of the worst gay films ever, filled with ceaseless and pointless verbal diarrhea which keeps you on the edge of your seat because you will feel so drowsy that you can't sit straight!!!

The first film has two guys talking about stupid stuff for 30 minutes and then shove something that looks vaguely like a negligible whiff of lame horror in the last 30 seconds just to absurdly proclaim itself as a gay horror film."
Plenty Suspensful
Brian Andrews | Austin TX | 05/15/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Okay, so here's the deal. It's quite scary and chilling at times. I wouldn't take it seriously (as in any thriller), but if you want some fun characters, great tongue-in-cheek humor, jump scares and cute guys, then it's fun entertainment. The second story is more serious, more like Night Gallery. Overall it's fun gay entertainment, and some great kissing. The music is great!

BTW, the director/cast info amazon has listed is wrong. This stars Mike Dolan, Ron Petronicolos, Matt Austin, Craig Staswick, Seth Adams."
Complete waste of time - This DVD best used as a coaster
Aragorn the Traveler | Houston, TX United States | 06/10/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"There are a few movies that I've watched that are so bad that I don't bother to finish watching. "When Darkness Falls" was one of them.

Badly written and poorly acted, the thin script and dialog was repeated endlessly for perhaps no reason beyond filling the time. Characters repeated the same action so often I thought the DVD was stuck or the editor had lapsed consciousness.

I'm told that the second film (The Best of Care) was better, but I had long since exited the show by the time the second "dose of fright" came on the screen.

The photography (passable) and the music (atmospheric) were among the best parts of the entire film. Unfortunately, neither of these more promising elements could make up for the flaws in what was ultimately a waste of plastic."
