A decent horror flick descends into rubbish
2 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What starts out as a decently promising horror-thriller quickly succumbs to tedious stalling in The Deaths Of Ian Stone. It happens about 30 minutes in, about the time that you realize that this premise would be much better served by a show like The Twlight Zone or The Outer Limits. After watching the title character repeatedly meet his end with only a few elements of foreshadowing present I wondered how this film could manage to pull off a full additional hour without rehashing the same established plot elements, but I was more than willing to give it that chance. Sadly, this point in the film is the last time I felt any enjoyment watching it, as to my dismay shaking up the plot actually turned out to be a very bad thing. I don't know if I can effectively describe how bad the second half of this film is, but combining the costumes of the Matrix with an out of left field tone change into some second rate supero hero movie completely reeked of cheese and camp. Gone is the suspense and mystery, and compounding this problem is the fact that most things that happen in the movie are never explained, they are just there. The parts that are fleshed out or explained are often times dropped with no clear point as to why they were included. All of this ultimately ruined the potential the opening act had going for it. The special effects are more than adequate and stand as one of the bright spots. However, the acting varies drastically as the movie progresses, further making it difficult to connect with the protagonist. For example, in one scene the title character wakes up obviously drugged out on heroin, to the point that he still has a needle stuck in his disgusting puss filled arm wound. He naturally acts intoxicated and struggles to walk or form coherent sentences. Then for the purposes of having an escape/chase scene, he suddenly is able to quickly get out of an apartment window and climb down to the street to get away while speaking normally. Moments such as this make it very difficult to give the forgettable tripe this film offers a recommendation.
