Black magic in a town kept alive by human sacrifice...
31 May 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I only watched OGRE on the Sci-Fi channel because JOHN SCHNEIDER was in it and I hadn't seen any of his work in a long, long time. Always thought he was an interesting actor.

And he doesn't disappoint here. He's very good as the corrupt leader in a small town where each year a villager is sacrificed to keep the dreaded OGRE from killing them. To them, he is "that which must be fed." And feed he does, in a frenzy. But he's a CGI Shrek look-alike who is never too convincing. In addition, there are insufficient special effects and some bad acting by the younger members of the cast.

KATHARINE ISABELLE has to be singled out as the most offensive. She's a shrieking, whining and moronic girl who gets annoying after three minutes of screen time. Bad acting from a few others almost makes the film unwatchable in spots.

But through it all, JOHN SCHNEIDER takes his sinister role seriously and gives an eloquent performance that comes off as Shakespearean compared to some of the lesser players. A talented man, caught trapped in some bad material but doing his best to elevate it.

The backstory of a village threatened by a vicious ogre is interesting and it does get off to a good start with some fine atmospheric photography. But it soon becomes apparent that this is just another low-budget Sci-Fi Channel film that needed better dialog for its below-par cast of young thespians.
