A re-imagining of the horror icon Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who wields a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers and kills people in their dreams, resulting in their real death in reality.
After experiencing what they think are a series of "break-ins", a family sets up security cameras around their home, only to realize that the events unfolding before them are more sinister than they seem.
A group of high-schoolers invite Mandy Lane, a good girl who became quite hot over the summer, to a weekend party on a secluded ranch. While the festivities rage on, the number of revelers begins to drop quite mysteriously.
Don't be seduced by the user rating. This movie is awful, probably one of the worst I've ever seen.
If you're familiar with Home and Away, you'll probably recognise the main character. You'll also recognise the standard of acting, perhaps even the quality of writing.
Our main character Julian is American for some imperceptible reason, but unfortunately his accent wavers between Australian and some poor attempt at vague American sounding. The writers aren't really imaginative enough to come up with a reason for anything, so apparently he's an American on a Student Visa studying architecture and doing martial arts. This ultimately has nothing to do with the movie and fails to tie you to the character.
The pacing is terrible, frankly if you do happen to make it to the last 15 minutes the payoff isn't really worth it.
If you can put aside the terrible Aussie soap style writing, the crappy plot, the bad acting and the unsatisfying payoff, you might get some nice views of Perth. So that's good I guess.
Note: For those attacking my person, I appreciate that it's much easier to launch personal attacks and speculate about my interests in why this film sucks, so by all means knock yourself out. I'm also pleased to inform you that I am actually Australian (although I spend time in Canada too), which I figured would've been obvious based on my comments.
