atypical Craven
23 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let me start off by saying I am not a Wes Craven fan nor a fan of the horror genre, so I can't judge this in terms of Wes Craven. I do know it's atypical of him, having sat through half of one of his films which is now banned.

Spectacular scenery highlights "Don't Look Down," about a young woman who witnesses the horror fall which results in the death of her beloved sister. She joins a group to get over her resulting fear of heights. Unfortunately the members of the group start ending up dead.

The denouement of this film was guessable from the first frame. The performances are decent and the setting is truly gorgeous. It's certainly entertaining. I caught this on Lifetime where I've seen much worse. I think with films like this, it makes a difference whether you see it in a theater, rent it, or catch it for free. I say wait and catch it for free.
