A Gem
30 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every week I stop into Blockbuster and rent the new direct to video horror movie and every week I'm pretty much disappointed. Most are shot with non-actors in lead roles, some with home video equipment. Some are boring and some are painful. This is the rare gem of a movie in this field of crap.

For a direct to video feature, the movie has scope. Yes, the CGI isn't top notch but great CGI doesn't make a great movie.

This is a horror movie with complex characters that does not conform to a specific genre's rules. It could easily have been a scarecrow slasher movie with lots of dead teenagers but it tries for more.

I applaud it for that.

For those direct to video junkies like myself, Hallowed Ground has great production value, great acting (for the genre), and best of all...

An original concept.
