Seventy years ago, Jacob Burkitt murdered and dismembered his entire family and cast a dark shadow over the small town of Monessen, Pennsylvania. Now Sara's friends have decided to make her 18th birthday a night to remember by throwing her a surprise party in the reputedly haunted Burkitt Manor. As her friends set up the party, the evil within the house awakens and begins killing off her friends one by one. Does Sara have what it takes to save her friends from almost certain death or will she too become victim to the horrors of Burkitt Manor? Written by
Another horror I got at Cinedoo which I think deserves a look at. It's a low budget film but special effects and make up effects are very good and the gore is great. Also I watched it on my iphone so I didn't feel like I was watching a low budget horror. The premises is nothing new - the house is cursed because of the massacre that happened there in the past but some teens think it would make a great place for a birthday party. Sounds familiar, right? However, it's the execution that makes it special. The movie starts slow but 20 minutes into it and you ARE in the horror house. Nothing cheesy or cheep. Acting is good and special effects can easily rival higher budget slashers. The scare is excellent and I can imagine it getting a theatrical release if it was done with a higher budget. Also Tom Savini cameo shows the creators know their stuff. Definitely worth three dollars I paid for it at cinedoo.
