Intent on exacting bloody revenge on the reunited English friends Murray possesses the body of a guest and turns him into a murderer. He seems impossible to stop as when the possessed guest is killed, Murray passes into the killer to continue his mission of murdering all nine of them. It is survival of the fittest as the friendships are pushed to the limit. No one can guess who the next killer will be or how to break the chain. Only one will survive. Written by <>

Don't keep your eyes out for this one.
7 November 2010 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

I'm always optimistic when I begin watching any movie, no matter how low the general consensus is or how many scathing reviews there are out there. So I sat down to Nine Lives and hoped for better than I had been expecting. My hope was misplaced. While it's not terminally dull or completely incompetent (the shooting of the film is okay and things have a certain polish to them) it is one of the worst movies with a decent enough budget to work with (relatively speaking) that I have seen in some time.

A bunch of friends arrive at a big, isolated country house and one of them reads a book that ends up making them possessed by a vengeful spirit with no eyes. If the person is killed then the spirit moves into the person who did the killing. Sound dumb? Well, it is.

The script isn't very good, and almost drags things down completely before the death count begins, because you never care about anyone on screen despite this being some kind of hybrid of slasher flicks and Peter's Friends.

The acting isn't the worst I've seen but every time the abhorrent Paris Hilton is on screen you may feel as I did and start to look for things to throw at your TV. I actually didn't mind her turn in Repo but she fails to impress in anything else she's ever done. Sadly, she's the only "name" in the cast though the other actresses are pleasant enough and the guys do what they're instructed to do - make dumb decisions and wait for death, basically.

Director, and writer, Andrew Greene (it's hard to figure out just what additional dialogue Tom MacRae would admit to for his credit) fumbles with the pacing, any set-pieces and things like logic or believability. Of course, it sounds ridiculous to say such a thing when discussing horror flicks but each movie still has to work within the context of it's own movie universe and this one doesn't.

It's hard to pick a "worst scene" when we have so many to choose from - the pathetic bickering between people you don't care about, the moment when a man enters a room via a smashed window and then presses himself against a locked door to offer himself a sense of momentary protection, the strange chronological glitches you hope are leading to something but just end up abandoned or a final speech that you just want to end as soon as it's begun. There are many worse movies out there but that doesn't mean that this isn't awful considering what there was to work with.
