Movie Reviews

Locally Shot Horror Fil Makes Good
Michael A Groff | 08/18/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This film was shot in and around the West Chester, PA area and I was fortunate enough to be a part of the film through my place of employment (Good Fellowship Ambulance of West Chester). The story involves a group of teenagers who spend the night in an abandoned insane asylum on a dare. One by one they all wind up dead at the hands of a mysterious killer. As the film evolves, it intertwines the lives of the kids as well as their parents (who are prominent townspeople with their own disturbing pasts). Cinematically the film is moderately well done, with some fairly well achieved special effects. The use of the historic Oakbourne Mansion, lends realism and a dark brooding affect to the site being a former asylum. In all, a well written and performed story by an up and coming local production company."

"I wanted to like this movie; in fact, while watching it I found myself kind of enjoying it. Only after it was over and I started thinking about it, I realized KILLER INSTINCT is really a disjointed, poorly conceived and performed film. The identity of the killer is pretty obvious, and talented character actors Corbin Bernsen and Dee Wallace Stone are wasted in poorly written roles. From the opening scene of the lynching of a maniacal killer, we know that somehow the goings on in the asylum have to be connected. Since we know someone was watching the lynching from a distance and it was obviously a little girl, we just have to guess which of our female performers is that little girl all grown up. There's little coherence as to exactly how the killer was "made" a killer by the good townspeople, so the tale of revenge falls short in that category. And we have seen so many movies where a gang of stupid kids go off to a deserted asylum or school or hospital or etc., and get knocked off in unimaginative ways. KILLER INSTINCT is no exception. I give it two stars because I did find myself at least wanting to know what was going on; too bad I'm not sure I truly understand what I watched."
A Pretty Good Film

"I hated this film the first time I saw it. It was disjointed, with weird stuff going on in town that didn't seem to relate to the kids locked in a house, getting killed one by one. Yet something about the movie appealed to me, so I watched it again. Then again. Finally, it all fit and I realized that this is an interesting tale of revenge. Worth a watch!!
The movie also has a great soundtrack by Bonehead, who went on to become Familiar 48 and then drop off the planet. A shame."
It Was Good!

"Much better than I expected, agreat film to watch with all of the lights off! And a twist ending to boot. When I first saw the young fresh faced cast I immediately thought it would be another SCREAM retread, but I was surprised that this was more along the lines of the horror in FRIDAY the 13th. It was a lot of fun, I recommend it to anyone who liked the horror/thriller genre! Enjoy..."
