I consider myself quite the movie lover, and horror has always held a sort of appeal to me I could never quite understand. I watched Chaos out of sheer interest in the forbidden. I want to watch and be shocked and cry to the heavens that such depravity is unbelievable, that people like this are not really people but some kind of genetic mutation that must be destroyed immediately, and that nothing like this would ever happen to anyone I know.
I've seen some violent horror movies, and I've watched them with the idea in the back of my mind that it was indeed a movie, and all the actors went home well and in one piece. But there are some that suck you into a deep dark place if you let them. If you stop with the high and mighty movie snob ideas and the preconceived notions, they will take you places you do not want to go. Chaos took me to such a place.
Who cares if it started as a remake, a sequel, or a rip-off? Who cares if the blonde teen is ugly and the other girl gets on my nerves? Daisy's voice screeched across my ears like nails on a blackboard, but I got past it. I actually watched the movie.
I liked the movie, even if it startled me to the point that I actually gagged. Kevin Gage plays a very good devil. His killer takes to his role with such relish. In fact, it's not even the pleasure he takes in the killings that makes these girl's deaths so chilling to me. It's his casualness. Murders like this happen everyday. Seeing how little they may mean to the murderer shows just how dangerous some people really are.
Chaos - both the movie and Kevin Gage's character - have stranded me in a space full of unsettling ideas and the realization that, indeed, no matter what else they are, these murderers are human. That means more to me than any cinematography ever could.
