While driving to her hometown Ovid, Colorado, to visit her sheriff brother Jeff and niece Olympia, Joan Burrows recalls her traumatic experience with best friend Susie when they were teenagers. Joan and Susie, smoking pot in a cemetery, decided to snoop on Bishop the caretaker at the funeral home. Joan falls and hurts her knee, so Bishop, having found them, invites the girls inside to clean the wound. Soon they are sedated with chloroform and submitted to a cruel torture - a sick game where Bishop tells each girl to ask him to kill the other to stop their own suffering. When a copycat killer starts killing Olympia's classmates, Joan tells police that Bishop is back (or someone who looks just like him) but nobody believes her.

In the beginning when the newspaper clipping are flashed onscreen, only the titles are edited. The content under the titles has nothing to do with the movie. Palestine, NASDAQ and the Internet Technology Association of America are a few examples of the real topics of the article titled "Young heroin Joan Burrows grateful to be alive; sorrowful", for example.

It Never Stops
10 August 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While driving to her hometown Ovid, Colorado, to visit her brother and local sheriff Jeff (Christopher Titus) and her niece Olympia (Kirby Bliss Blanton), Joan Burrows (Angela Bettis) recalls her traumatic experience with her best friend Susie (Tegan Moss) when they were teenagers. Joan (Brittney Wilson) and Susie are smoking pot in the cemetery and decide to snoop the caretaker Bishop (Ben Cotton) in the funeral home. Joan falls and hurts her knee, and Bishop invites the girls to enter in the house to clean the wound. Sooner they are sedated with chloroform and submitted to a cruel torture in a sick game where Bishop tells each girl to ask to kill the other to stop the suffering. When a copycat killer kills Olympia's friends, Joan tells the police officers that Bishop is back but nobody believes in her words. When Olympia is abducted, Officer Lucas (Chris Nannarone) actually believes that Joan has abducted her niece and might be the serial-killer.

"Scar" is an impressively gore and sadistic horror movie that follows the style of "Hostel" or "Saw". The story is reasonably well developed through flashbacks, but it is not difficult to guess the identity of the killer; the predictability is due to the few numbers of characters. I am a fan of the cult actress Angela Bettis, but in general the acting is good, highlighting Ben Cotton and Devon Graye. The special effects and make-up seems to be great, but I saw the DVD without the 3-D glasses and the image was completely blurred. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Scar – A Marca do Mal" ("Scar – The Mark of the Evil")
