Did You Know?

After much coaxing and assurance, Vince Eustace grew his trade-mark medium to short length hair to an impressive long style for the role, boasting several more inches and much more shine. When filming wrapped however, he was stricken with grief and endured much counseling concerning his inevitable hair cut back to reality.See more »
Continuity: When Alex, Ruby & Susan enter the room before the climactic fight scene, Ruby & Susan approach the fireplace first. In the next shot, Alex is in front of them.See more »

A good Drive-in movie, 3 May 2011
Author: Lew Bartholomew from Canada

Respire took me back to my youth when my brother would take us to the drive in movie. We would watch the simple mystery/horror through hands pressed against our faces to protect us from the boogie man. But that is about as far as this movie got for me, memories of getting scared as a kid. Which usually didn't take much effort in a horror movie.

As an adult however I had to constantly remind myself that there wasn't a lot of money thrown at this film which may be why some of the script gets very "home movieish" at times. I shouldn't have had to think of excuses for stiff dialogue. But the plot twists are fun to watch as they are revealed just as all the red corn syrup is fun to watch squirting out of wounds.

Compared to more widely released films, this one passes the test of a good scary tween/teen movie but fails to live up to the standards set by Halloween, Saw, Nightmare on Elm Street and others. I guess I am stuffy that way.

But graded simply on its own merit, it is worth including into your teenager's weekend slumber party. Providing you don't mind some on again / off again violence (and the required red corn syrup).

Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed. You might actually enjoy it.
