Unbelievably Bad
11 May 2012 | by (Carnival of Souls-ville) – See all my reviews

I've been watching horror films for most of my life, and I can usually find at least one positive in any of them. Unfortunately, I think I met my match with Dead Above Ground.

Plot, pacing, performances - it's all sub-par. The "goth" kids are worse than the old Azrael Abyss sketches with Chris Kattan and Molly Shannon on SNL. Are we supposed to feel any sort of emotional connection to them? Because I sure didn't.

The "good guys" are so bland, I couldn't tell them apart, nor did I care about the imminent threat they were allegedly under. In fact, I pretty much stopped trying to follow the story with over half the movie left. The horror fails, the humor fails, and it's one of the rare movies that makes Antonio Sabato Jr completely unattractive. In fact, I'm kind of angry that I'm taking enough time to write a review of this one, when I'd be better off forgetting its existence as soon as possible.

Avoid at all costs.
