Crazy Credits

After the scrolling credits: A really phony shot of the two twins (Crispin Glover composited twice into the frame) looking down the opening to the hiding place, one of them says, "You forgot to say 'Simon Says'". This is followed by a shot of the "Miner Tool and Gear" sign, in which the gear mounted in the middle of the sign spins while a scream is heard underneath. See more »

Cartoonishly wacky and fun backwoods slasher
12 December 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I wanted to like Simon Says more than I did, but even so I found it to be a solid piece of mindless entertainment with a substantial quantity of gnarly scenes. Its a pretty typical set up, with a bunch of young folk who make the mistake of going down to the woods and encountering the deranged, murderous twins Simon and Stanley. What ends up going down is unlikely to surprise in its fundamentals and the joy comes from the gusto that the film musters up once it really gets going, as well as the engagingly far fetched killing going on. See, the twins are technical wizards with a love of pick axes so the film has a number of wacky trap and weapon based kills that utilise in some way or other, flying pick axes. There are even one or two scenes where the film oddly resembles House Of Flying Daggers, albeit with flying pick axes. Which is a good thing, obviously. There's a good bodycount and a decent amount of the red stuff, but whilst there isn't too much obvious cgi in this one, the film doesn't dwell on the slaying long enough for the grue to really have as much effect as it should do. The film is only a 15 certificate in this country and it definitely feels like it would have more of a punch if the camera stayed on the grue, instead of just giving us a look and then moving on. Don't get me wrong its still fun and satisfying and the sheer outlandishness counts for a lot, but I still craved a little more. As the twins, Crispin Glover pulls off a great performance, delightfully skipping between menace and dark humour to create a great impression. I didn't think much of the youngsters, though Greg Cipes does a good job as the hapless stoner Zak, and Margo Harshmann is pretty effective as Kate. The writing is enjoyable enough, nothing too profound, but the kids aren't to irritating and Simon and Stanley are nicely drawn characters. The direction is solid, drawing some shocks, thrills and the odd nicely creepy moment. There's a good ghoulish humour going on too which is pretty handy. All in all, this is entertaining schlock with some good imaginative mayhem, fun splatter and grisly humour. It's hardly classic cinema but it sure is a blast to watch.
