Just watched Left for Dead and loved it! I don't know why the haters
come on here and disregard the talent of these independent artists! I
thought the story was basic, but fitting for this slasher flick.
Overall it was a really fun film and I think anyone looking for a
horror film done in the same flavor as the classics will love Left for
I also want to mention the great work done by the special FX people. All of the masks were awesome especially the killers mask well done!
If anyone knows how I can get a copy of this please message me. I would love to add it to my collection of horror films!
I came across this film at random on a late night. It's a good film,
made like an 80's slasher. Masked killer hunting down frat boys with a
knife due to a secret they share in the past. Not groundbreaking, but
still a decent concept. Nice story and talented young actors,
especially solid performance from Steve Byers and Shawn Roberts. The
older actors seem to not care as mush about the film though, poor
performance. Which was too bad, even if you disregard the bad acting it
ruins the experience. It's a cute nod to all the old horror films,
complete with blood, gore and basic nudity.
As a fan of old horror, it was worth watching.

I remember reading a brief article in Fangoria back in '07 when this
was being made. It sounded pretty decent, albeit, treading familiar
territory, but since it has Danielle Harris in it, I didn't think it
would be too bad. I was so wrong. I just finished watching this. It's
not only bad, but terribly boring.
Here is the plot. Five frat brother's accidentally cause the death of a young man who stole the wallet of one the brother's during their annual "Devil's Night." One year later (shades of IKWYDLS anyone?) during their Halloween party, the frat brother's and their girlfriends begin to die, one by one, at the hands of a masked killer brandishing a machete.
Yes, this sounds like every other revenge slasher before and after IKWYDLS, but I still thought it had potential. The acting was sub-par, at best, the violence and gore disappointingly minimal, and the killer from far threatening. The Halloween mask looks like it costs $10 at Wal-Mart. None of the characters (with the exception of Danielle Harris' character, Nancy and her boyfriend Tommy) were worth rooting for. Hell, even Tommy's character really wasn't worth rooting for. All he did was whine and whine about what had happened last year. Not much more. The only real positive thing in this movie was the body count. It was actually pretty decent.
I cannot for the life of me understand why the wonderful Danielle Harris saw in this project. She was woefully underused, and her role was nothing but to be the weak-willed victim that graced many 80s slashers.
For something that had so much PR hype going on for it, it sure delivered poorly. In my opinion, only watch it for Danielle Harris. Other that that, it isn't worth the 78 minutes of your life that you will waste on it.
what the .....when the film started i want to turn it out...the picture
looked were cheap, and so the torture goes on, i cant describe how bad
this film is....the story okay...nothing new, but that not the matter,
the actors are not so good, the effects are bad, dialogs are bad....to
make it faster..."everything" is bad, don't understand how the film get
a rating of 5. the problem is....maybe this film was good before 30-40
years...but now...this is very bad, like Texas chainsaw....if you look
that today...it is really bad, so i vote the films at the time i see
them. i don't want to write a penny dreadful,
so .... do your self a favor and skip this one !
sorry for the English, greetings from cologne, Germany
This may not be the worst movie of all time, but it at least deserves to be in the top 10. Horrid acting, over-dramatized scenarios, unbelievable scenes and situations, and the best looking nude may have been a 6. I'm being generous. Normally I would have given this film a 2 or 3 (depending on how drunk I am) rating, but I feel I must give it a 1 to offset the truly poor judge of taste that so many have languished on this film that does little more than lay there and pine for our attentions, using 3rd rate acting and 3rd rate nudity. I could almost swear that one chick had a cesarean scar. I was lured to this crap fest by the IMDb rating. I can only assume that every student at the college that filmed this must have logged in and up'd the ratings. Save your time and don't bother with this one. The worst part of the whole movie is they opened it up for a sequel.
