This movie does have a slow start, and I'd heard bad things about that. However I was pleasantly surprised when it picked up and the blood started to fly. This movie had fantastic gore and a decent plot. The atmosphere was also very eerie, and the music was cool. The ending was very different from most low budget horror flicks which was refreshing. I was very impressed at the overall attention to production value on such a tight budget. Overall, I must say that the 8th Plague was not too shabby for a DV flick. The girls were hot too which didn't hurt. This movie is not for the squeamish. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a 9th plague. Hopefully they'll start the gore and creepiness sooner on that one if they make it!
