Not an atrocious horror film, just a generic one
23 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

"Curse of the Forty-Niner" doesn't really deserve a long and detailed review, so I'll just make some random observations about it:

  • Cool opening credits.


  • No plot.


  • Is there anyone who's ever seen a horror film before and can't guess,
within the first 20 minutes, who will survive and who will not among this group of walking stereotypes?

  • Hey, that newcomer (Alexandra Ford) is pretty hot!


  • Richard Lynch (made-up to look about 100 years old) and John Phillip
Law have fun, tongue-in-cheek cameos.

  • Karen Black has a bigger role, but she's not fun - she's rather
embarrassing.

  • Martin Kove is on-screen for about 40 seconds, but still got his name
on the video cover. Did they pay him for this appearance or was it the other way around?

  • I hate cheap computer-generated effects in horror films.


*1/2 out of 4.
