What did I just watch?
3 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

The Curse of Downers Grove would probably have been an OK by-the-book revenge/payback thriller with elements of home invasion in line with I Spit On Your Grave and An Eye For An Eye... if it wasn't for the absolutely out of nowhere W.T.F. ending, which just leaves you wondering what the hell that was all about. Without giving out any spoilers, the general feeling The Curse of Downer Grove leaves you with is as if you were reading a decent Stephen King book which for some reason ended with a sentence "And then they all got naked and started farting on each other". You might have enjoyed the rest of the text, but the way it ends would just leave you wondering just what exactly went wrong there.
