Storyline

In a sleepy and uneventful small town, three college students, bored and desperate to make their mark, plot a savage and merciless murder. Electing to keep a video journal to memorialize their bizarre pact, they plot in secret, devising a homemade death chamber that will allow them to see, hear, feel, and linger over their intended victim's torment and final moments of life. Then, chosen at random, a fellow student becomes this victim when she is to receive perhaps the most brutal and horrifying of all fates. The default leader of this macabre trio directs the physical and psychological terror, even as contention and hostility within the group threatens to jeopardize their twisted plan, culminating in a violent and chilling conclusion.

Quite... boring.
14 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, it was once again a night where with nothing better to do and no new releases in the Red Box that I wanted to see and had not already seen, I decided to take a gamble on a movie that sounded interesting, in spite of never having heard of it or heard of the production company. Unfortunately, I struck out this time. What sounded like an interesting and possibility entertaining flick on the Red Box summary was just another example of really insidious false advertising. The summary itself was misleading, speaking of half truths pertaining to the plot and making it sound far more entertaining than it was.

The honest run down: Three small town college kids are bored and decide that a great way to kill time is to... well kill someone. Each has their own reason, each more stereotypical than the last, such as the Apathetic character who never feels anything and hates life, or the character who is angry at their parents for never being around and decides taking out years of pent up anger on a stranger would be therapeutic. No matter the reasoning or justification, it's still three college kids who decide to make their mark on the world by becoming murderers.

The kids film the entire process in a documentary style format, filming themselves making plans and speaking of subjects that the writers probably thought to be deep, but with poor scripting and much less than interesting characters, the dialog completely fell flat and made the movie tedious and just that much longer. It took far too long for anything interesting to happen, and even then, just when you thought things would pick up, you are treated to the slowest moving and least entertaining part of the film yet.

The idea was interesting in and of itself, but the execution was terrible. Sub par directing, bad script, okay acting (at least it was not bad, but it was not good either)and sloth styled pacing made the movie impossible to enjoy. It was not that it was annoying, or stupid or even baffling, rather so much as it was just so boring and lacking of creativity. You watch the movie with one eye, the other resting on your watch wondering when it will end.

I gave it a 3/10. It's not the worst I've ever seen by and far, but as stated, pacing so slow it almost seems to go backwards, bad dialog, okay acting and a lack of creativity made this a dredging process to get through.
