BEWARE OF THE REVIEW SCAM!!!!
(2 out of 5 stars)
"Notice how these 5-star reviews are from reviewers who have reviewed nothing else. They are clearly involved with the film production and are just marketing their crap low-budget movie. It is a regular occurence here with these college-level movies. A film like this would NEVER be given 5 stars no matter how lenient the critical eye. It's low budget garbage with a good dose of T & A thrown in for sales. Wake up people!!! You have been warned!!!

"Firstly, there seems to be a reviewing controversy. I have reviewed many other horror movies, especially B/C/D rate horror movies. That said, Reality Kills isn't the best horror movie I've ever seen, but it's certainly not the worst (That would be a tie between Zombie Nation and Date Movie).
Reality Kills is a send up of reality television, most notably MTV's Real Life. Seven strangers with very distinct personalities are forced to live together in a remote house. The characters in the movie are exaggerations of the `types' that usually end up on Real Life - The Good Girl who may not be so good, the misunderstood African American male, a character based on Puck from Real Life 4 (this alone is worth buying the movie), the bi-sexual girl, the Goth.... Etc. After a set-up of everyone's personalities the murders begin. The deaths aren't the most spectacular in any small time horror movie, so go into the film with that in mind.
Who the killer is comes as a surprise, and the plot flows along well. I think if you go into the movie with the idea it's not the most brilliant horror cinema, but it is a brilliant send up of MTV's Real World with an I Know What You Did Last Summer/Scream feel, then you shouldn't be disappointed.
Recommended for people in the mood for a fun, easy B grade horror movie.
Lame, low budget horror movie.

"Dont believe the "5 Star" reviews below. They were obviously written by people who are marketing this total piece of garbage. Completely unoriginal low budget disaster that "borrows" from Scream, Friday the 13th and others. Not only that, but they already did a Haloween sequel that had the exact same premise (Real World-like reality show where everyone gets killed). Terrible acting, cheesy video technique, no chemistry among the actors and the typical stereotypes, i.e. bimbo, goth kid and tough black guy. Do not waste your time with this trash."
