Good one to make fun of
16 November 2003 | by (cincinnati, ohio) – See all my reviews

If you're looking for a movie to pull your own MST3K on, this is a good one. Horror 101 airs on the Sci-Fi Channel from time to time, yet their is no "science fiction" in it. You can't take anything seriously because every part of the movie either tries to hard (the pictures in Miss James's office looks like rejects from the Se7en art direction department) or tries too little (all the students utter "What's wrong with you?" AND "You idiot!" at least once, maybe more). The characters are glaring stereotypes, which could have been effective if it got us thinking about the characters one way and then suddenly turned the tables on us. But instead, no tables are turned and the characters are devoid redeeming qualities. The pudgy guy in black is the loner weirdo, the student in the glasses (which, by the way, don't have any LENSES!) is another possible suspect because he's the typical repressed nerd. But the jock is a bit of a hot head, so we could suspect him of foul play, blah blah blah...

There are so many questions to ask, but I suggest that you don't because it makes your head hurt. Why would a university not cancel a course after most of the students dropped out, leaving only eight left in the class. Seems like a waste of money. And WHY does this university have guard dogs out at night, for goodness sake? Are none of the students allowed to walk around campus after the sun goes down? If you've ever been on, seen, or just heard of a college campus, you know that people are out at night!

The most annoying things about this movie is its crappy soundtrack that gets played WAY too often and the fact that the writers wrote about a page of dialogue and just found different ways of rewording it to fill the 2 hours. That said, this is a good one to make fun of with a few friends. It good even for the squeamish, because there's NO HORROR AT ALL in it. This is the Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai of horror movies.

Floyd: That's a stupid place for a hole in the stage.

Jake: (like he's an idiot for not knowing) IT'S TO SERVICE THE HYDRAULIC LIFT!

Allison: You dork!
