The Seamstress was brought into being by the desperate curse of an innocent woman being tortured to death by a vigilante mob. Voracious for blood, the hideously-mutilated specter hunts a small group of friends who become trapped on the island where she died. The friends, led by Allie, are searching for Allie's missing father. As Allie comes to understand that he was one of the vigilantes, her friends begin to die gruesome horrific deaths on the point of The Seamstress' needle. When the last two surviving vigilantes arrive, locked in their own dance of death and revenge, Allie must either preserve her own innocence or be corrupted by vengeance herself. Written by
Whilst trying to solve the 20-year-old mystery of Seamstress, a serial killer, who sew victims eyes and mouths together Donny Plachtt (David Nykl) is half-buried alive, mutilated and then brutally murdered. His daughter Allie (Kailin See) receives his last message and embarks on a search to find out what happened to her father. On the way she indulges into the scribblings of her old man full of mysterious gibberish about the Seven. Soon afterwards together with five happy-go-lucky friends she boards a boat without any radio station to an island with no phone signal and without a loaded gun to track down the murderous Seamstress. Go figure!
Somewhere within the confines of ineptitude there was actually a decent story hidden in between the poor sound-mix, atrocious plot-holes and moronic script. The location itself (a secluded forest island) offers apt atmosphere, while the specter with killer intentions is sufficiently creepy. Even if you blindfold yourself to ignore the countless logic gaffs of characters (it is a slasher horror), but the total randomness of the murders, which ends up uresolved, features as a plothole causing systemic failure. The whole movie system collapses with a inexcusably rushed finale (did the budget run out?) patched up with some laughable SFX. The cast itself can hardly be put to blame, as in general they do decently with the material afforded to them, albeit apparent sound issues make make dialogues hard to decipher, including some key parts which are drowned out by background noise.
