I don't know what movie that guy below me saw.. but either he wasn't all there or he worked on the film.
I saw it at a screening with the director and a couple of the stars and I'm sorry to say that me and my friend got up at left about 1 hour into it. The Director said it was a straight up exploitation film but.. jeez. This film blew.
The first scene was very good. Which started off with a father figure yelling at a young boy about raping him and teaching him how to be a man and whatnot, it actually was a very chilling and dark scene. But after that initial success.. it just slowed down extremely a lot and just.. blew.
I'm a huge fan of independent films and hate to score a movie so low but its true.
The fx. Even though this is a very low budget flick the fx were very horrible. Its kinda a unwritten rule that if your goimg to lack in certain departments, at least you can go all out on the fx which is the easiest part to accomplish on a film. (for me anyway)
The acting is forgivable seeing that its a Indie. But, the lines that these people say are just plain unbealivable to just bad. For example a daughter goes to her father talking to him about her wanting to better herself and "i don't want to serve drinks to people all my life" He than responds with a "why not your good at it!". what father would say that to a daughter thats trying to get out of a shithell job?
The director said it took him 2 years to finish this and I don't know what he was doing in that 2 year span but it wasn't spent making a quality movie. I don't know if he was trying to make the lighting "cool" by having black mixed in with the occasional highlight of red to see the outline of the actors face, but either way it didn't work and was just annoying me and my friend.
I give the director credit in the sense that he made a movie and even though it took 2 years to complete, he still stuck with it. But I guess next time get an outside opinion of the script cause the movie wasn't well done.
