About as entertaining as a hernia., 4 July 2009
Author: stormofwar from United States

I picked this up at a Redbox thinking it sounded like a pretty typical b-film typical slasher flick. I'm a fan of films in this genre, my father having introduced me at an early age.

However, this film is one of the worst I have seen.

"Spiker" is a story of a maniacal mass murderer with superhuman endurance who goes after 6 kids staying at the house of one of their decedents.

The previous owner is channeled via séance whom one can seen and hear (of course, being the decedent). In the end, this could have been a good beer movie, but it doesn't even come close to reaching it's potential.

The production values are awful and among the worst I have seen. The sound seems slightly muffled. At times, you really cannot make out what is being said despite the conversation should be a normal situation. The set was something of a disgrace at points (here's your 20 year old oven with no dust? WTF?). The acting is sub par, even for the genre, and absolutely uninspired. The cinematography is awful (was their any point to the cheerleader butt shot?).

I give the special effects a dishonorable mention. The first 10 minutes of the film were promising, including the BBEG having purple eyes. However, they are not seen in the rest of the film, and the first "motif" death seemed the point where they gave up. Spiker also does a move where he periodically bangs the heads of this spikes together for no discernible reason. Just walking along the railroad tracks *clang*. Going through the fores *clang*. This could be the dumbest trademark move in the history of moviedom.

Honestly, I have seen awful movies. I have seen Bloodrayne sober. I have watched Date Movie and not cried tears of pain. I have seen Manos un-MST3K'ed. I have survived all this. Please understand this warning I give to you now.

Do not waste your time of day on this trash. You will want those hours of your life back, but unfortunately, you can't get a refund. Consider yourself warned.
