Trivia

American Roy Frumkes and Dutchman Richard Abram set up a development company in the late 80s and developed two genre projects: 'The Subtitute' and 'The Johnson Blues'. Eventually, Abram decided to go back to the Netherlands, meaning the company was dissolved. Frumkes kept the rights to 'The Subtitute' and Abram those of 'The Johnson Blues'. This is why the film was eventually produced in the Netherlands. See more »

Dutch horror! And not even that bad!
20 July 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Probably the first dutch horror movie I've ever seen, and I didn't even feel cheated or annoyed. The title revers to the 7 unknown brothers Emalee Lucas has. These brothers are being kept in a mental institution after having killed several other kids when they were 7 years old. One day they escape (probably the most stupid part of the movie) as they have to impregnate their sister according to some old myth...

Pretty cheap as you would expect, but not as bad as it sounds. A gutsy attempt by the director of Evenings to make it work and decent acting by Herdigein, Van de Ven and in particular by the young De la Bretoniere, who hasn't really been showing up the last couple of years.

6/10.
