I sat down to watch "13 Eerie" without a single clue as to what it was about whatsoever. And as the movie started up, I thought it might be a crime thriller or something, and being the zombie aficionado that I am, imagine my surprise when the corpses started to wake up. It was just priceless.
Well, the thrill was short lived, because "13 Eerie" turned out to be really flat and very generic. And what really brought down the movie enjoyment was the fact that these zombies were able to run, even with their advanced decomposition. I am not particularly a fan of fast and agile zombies, but this here was just a bit too stupid. And to make matters worse, then the zombies were making these growling sounds that would put even the biggest and ferocious of lions to shame. It was so bad. Zombies should not, and I repeat not, be making such noises, it just becomes a spoof and a comedy on itself. But wait, it doesn't stop there, these zombies were breathing as well - you could clearly see the hot steam exhaling from their mouths against the cool night air. It was such a painful thing to witness, and such a rookie movie-making mistake to make.
Well, I am not even going to delve deep into the storyline, because there is very little to delve into. The story is essentially about a group of forensics students brought out to a remote location where they are to be tested under strenuous conditions, when the cadavers start to come to life. And that is it! End of story! Brendan Fehr and Brendan Fletcher actually did carry the movie quite well. But the other people on the cast list were going good jobs as well.
The zombies looked like something out of a 70's zombie movie, bad make-up and even worse design. However, that was more than made up for in the amounts of blood, gore and mutilation that was in the movie. And that is also one of the major reasons as to why this movie scores a 4 out of 10 rating.
"13 Eerie" is the type of movie that you watch once, and never ever make an attempt to watch again, because it just has nothing to offer or support a second watching in any way possible. The movie is linear, predictable, not even remotely scary and just trots ahead in a rather monotone pace.
