Jumping on the bandwagon.....
23 January 2002 | by (Barry,Wales) – See all my reviews

Way back in 1996 Master of the macabre Wes Craven had an idea, to re-invent the teenage horror slasher movie. It was an idea that gave the horror genre the new leash of life that it needed, although, as usual, Hollywood milked the concept. After 'Scream' set the critics raving and the audiences screaming, Hollywood came up with the theory that as Scream made one hell of a lot of money, they'll make more. Thus 'I Know What You Did Last Summer', 'Cherry Falls', 'Final Destination' & 'Valentine' (to name but a few) were born.

After 7 years the British Film Industry must have thought, "Hang on, let's have a go at that". Unfortunately, they're trying to jump on a bandwagon that is not there anymore, hence making one big mess. Namely - 'Long Time Dead'.

Now, I'm a strong supporter of British films, but this is just plain awful. Dire acting from all parties, the director (Marcus Adams; Also the writer) must have been asleep while the actors attempted to perform. The movie heavily relies on the: `boo...oh I scared you tactic', using a lot of non-digetic music weaving in with the digetic noise of the characters either running or aimlessly wondering before getting 'slaughtered'. Inverted commas because none of the killings actually go on on screen.

Literally the plot is scraping the bottom of the barrel. It kind of has distant echo's of Cravens superior 'Wishmaster' and the appalling 'I Still Know ..'. A group of teens for some reason (quite possibly I missed the part where this was explained, but I doubt it) decided to have a go on a Ouija board, and accidentally call a Djinn. A Djinn ( for all the people who didn't see Wishmaster) is a demon. The term Djinn is what is commonly known as a genie. But ironically enough (as if you didn't see this twist coming), the Djinn is evil.

For this 'Djinn' to be released it has to kill all those who conjured it. But really, do you even care? The characters are supposed to appeal to the audiences so we don't want them to die, yet we do.

An extremely predictable film from start to finish, if you can't see these twists coming then there is something seriously wrong with you.

Marks out of 10 - I'm not even gonna bother. I implore you, don't go and see this movie, don't waste your money.
