Watch this movie and you'll scream...with laughter, 21 June 2010
Author: sgtking from United States

I've said it before and I'll say it again, just because a person has a camera and a love for Horror movies doesn't mean they have the talent. After the success of 'Halloween' and 'Friday the 13th' many tried to capture some of that magic, usually failing miserably. Some other Slasher films like 'Terror Train' are still remembered by fans because they actually have redeeming qualities, but so many have been long and deservedly forgotten. Take this film for instance, a no budget straight to video Slasher flick devoid of talent and what makes a good Horror film. Does that mean it has no charms of it's own? Not at all, but you have to be in a certain frame of mind to appreciate them.

Pros: Spooky setting. Can't really say that the acting is good, but everyone at least seems to be enjoying themselves and the lines roll off their tongues naturally. Decent score, better than you'd expect from this junk. Unintentionally humorous because of it's stupidity and not making much sense.

Cons: Plot less. Lacking in logic. Slow paced. This is supposed to be a Slasher movie, but there's little blood and all but one of the kills are off screen. No one to root for because we don't get to know these people really. Byron Quisenberry wrote and directed this and fails on both counts. An ending that'll leave you with more questions than answers.

Final thoughts: I'd heard about this movie over the years and contemplated whether or not I should see it. I finally broke down and did and like so many before me wish I hadn't. This is not a good movie by any stretch of the imagination and it's no wonder Quisenberry's directing career didn't take off after this. The only reason to watch this is for a few laughs.

My rating: 1.5/5
