Very cool Halloween knock off..., 28 January 2006
Author: devilsreject1981-1 from Houston, Tx

This was a great, low budget slasher movie that was more of a throwback then most of the crap Hollywood has been putting in years. It's good to see that a director actually understands that a slasher movie doesn't necessarily have to tons of gore to be effective. This movie is in no way original unless you consider most horror movies are still trying to cash in on PG-13 movies with tons of crappy WB actors who will disappear in 2 years when their shows finally die. Remember Jennifer Love Hewitt? Remember Joshua Jackson? Remember Kerr Smith? It's always refreshing to see a horror movie that doesn't pretend to be anything it's not. Instead of crappy, unrealistic dialogue like in the ridiculously lame Teaching Mrs. Tingle or I Know What You Did Last Summer this movie is straight forward and gritty. Is the acting great? Of course not, this isn't the Omen or Exorcist. The director was obviously influenced by Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and other classic movies. Is this as good as Halloween or Black Christmas? Of course not, it's not supposed to be. It's just a serious horror movie with no humor and slasher who doesn't spit out one liners or wear Abercrombie & Fitch, Hot Topic and 200 dollar jeans from Urban Outfitters. I'm anxious to see what Stevan Mena does next and have heard rumors he's working on two sequels for this movie to form a trilogy. With a budget of 250 thousand dollars, few directors could actually pull off a pretty good genre flick. How much was the budget for the ridiculously lame Cursed? I know that Craven lost a lot of creative control over that movie and Dimension Films screwed him over even though he did give them the Scream trilogy but in a world of remakes, how can any fan of horror not like this movie? That being said, it's not Argento or Romero. There's no beautifully choreographed, elaborate death scenes and that's acceptable. It's a basic stalk and kill movie. No matter how derivative this is, it's still a REAL horror film. Movie snobs who take themselves too seriously and honestly don't love horror, will hate this and I doubt Stevan Mena was trying to get Roger Ebert to give him a great review or even get that corpulent slob to see Malevolence. He's too busy watching urban movies and giving movies like the Honeymooners 3 stars but will in turn give Cabin Fever and Wolf Creek horribly negative reviews, haha. What a tool.
