Did You Know?

Females in jeopardy: Within the first 5 minutes a girl is sexually assaulted and ganked by a man. At about 17 minutes in Dana is assaulted and ganked by Denny. At about 42 minutes in, Brooke is assaulted by Dennyand hit in the face. He apologizes and takes her home. With about 58 minutes remaining, Denny assaults Brooke and prevents her from leaving. He relents, but then at about 56 minutes remaining, he puts her in his car and uses duct tape to tie her up and gag her. At about 43 minutes remaining, Denny knocks out Katherine and ties and gags her using duct tape. With about 28 minutes remaining, Katherine s pistol whipped by Denny. At about 19 minutes remaining, Katherine is threatened by Freddie at gunpoint, and a fight. She ganks him via a garden tool to the neck. With about 17 minutes left Brooke is assaulted at knife point by Jose. She fights back and with the help of Kyle and Walter they gank Jose. With about 5 minutes left, Brooke and Katherine are threatened by Denny. Brooke stabs him and Katherine shoots him, but he continues to threaten Katherine by assaulting her. As he is about to finally gank her, Brooke apparently ganks him by hitting him with his car.See more »
Factual errors: Denny's woulds are something out of a bad horror movie with an indestructible boogeyman. Denny was stabbed with a large knife in his back and it does not phase him, whereas his conspirator was stabbed in the foot and nearly incapacitated. Also, there is next to no blood on his t-shirt where he was stabbed. Denny's later wounds include being stabbed in the leg and gut shot by a shotgun, but neither incapacitates him as he is able to attack and fight Katherine near the end.See more »
Denny:Well I've been on to you for months, Brooke.
Brooke:[laughs] Why, because you're some psycho stalker?
Denny:Rapist, actually.

The Ultimate Movie Review! - - @tss5078, 1 February 2016
Author: Tss5078 from United States

Since his childhood, I've seen Michael Welch appear in everything from American Son to Z Nation, and all that falls in between. This guy seems to be in everything, but it wasn't until I saw Born Bad, that I realized he's more than just some geeky guy in the background, he's got some real talent, playing every woman's worst nightmare. Brooke (Bonnie Dennison) is a rebellious teen, who is looking for love, and is immediately drawn to the older Denny (Michael Welch). At first he seems like the perfect boyfriend, but little did she know, he's actually a psychopath. To me films like this are scarier than any horror movie, because what's more likely to happen, a zombie apocalypse or coming across someone who isn't what the appear to be? As I said, Michael Welch was scary good in this film, portraying a man with two faces. On the surface, he's this really nice guy, but underneath, he is pure evil. Watching Welch balance the two and try to keep the real him at bay was really something to see. As far as the rest of the film, it's what you would expect, there isn't too much of a story here and little to no surprises, other than Michael Welch, who makes this film more than just something you'd turn off after ten minutes.
