Mediocre, low-budget and somewhat disappointing Slasher movie..
13 February 2011 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Low-budget horror movies can be surprisingly good (a lot of classics are in fact low-budget films) or just extremely bad. "Cornered" isn't awfully bad, but it is certainly below average. It starts off OK, with opening credits that let you believe this is a serial-killer film like "Se7en" or "Resurrection". But soon you realize this is a very average by-the-numbers 'slasher' with a shoe-string budget.

There are only 7 actors and 1 location. The slow story takes place in a grocery\liquor store where the owner and some friends play poker while there is killer in the shop. One by one they check it out and never come back.

The story reminds you a little of the classic slasher "Intruder" by Scott Spiegel. But "Intruder" was creepy and claustrophobic. "Intruder" had amazing special effects (KNB group) and brutal killings. It also had a surprising ending. "Cornered" fails on all counts. The story gets boring and it really stretches to fill the 82 minutes of running time. There was no money for real special effects or gore. The killings are disappointing. Even the 'highlight' kill, where one of them is hanging upside down and is gutted with an circle saw, is shown in a very cheap way to hide the fact that there was no real special-effects team present during the shooting.

To conclude with the 'surprise' ending: yeah, right; like we didn't see that one coming ! (well, there were not much choices to begin with). First credited is Steve Guttenberg (Mahoney from the "Police Academy" films) but his role is kind of minimum.

"Cornered" is not a very good movie. It really shows on screen that this is a very low-budget picture. It also never gets interesting and the motives of the killer are not really explained here. If you haven't seen "Intruder" (one of the best slashers ever made) than you can better check that one out and forget about this one.
