Plague Town Does A Lot Right
10 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sure Plague Town is another Rural Americans running amok movie, inexplicably set in Ireland- Although it looks like it was shot in Pennsylvania. Some of the accents are ridiculous but mostly every one does a great job.

The script has its ups & downs but the direction is pretty solid. The make up effects are also hit & miss. The shotgun wound to the face, is a big hit where some of the mutant kids look rushed. But my hat is off to whoever came up with Rosemary, the eyeless beauty. That was an inspired character and really brought the film up a notch or two.

Good old fashioned horror!
