Captivating MUST SEE Horror Flick!!!!
6 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

Its not often in life when you can bring a group of 8 people aged 22 to 56 to a movie who all leave a theatre loving it. But it happened opening night for the amazingly strong film MURDER UNIVERSITY. Captivating from start to finish the film blew out any expectations based on its modest budget from the minute it started. From the gripping intro to the opening credits city shot, to the soundtrack which leaves you wanting to hear the "Murder U" song when you left. The viewer was clearly transported into the world of the director Richard Griffin and writer Lenny Scwartz and the masterpiece they created. This movie cleverly combines horror, surprisingly great special effects, wit, humor and amazing performance by leads Jamie Dufault and Samantha Acampora, Michael Thurber and the rest of the cast. I was totally impressed by the writing of Lennie Schwartz. The film not only had depth and imagination but rolled along at a great pace to an incredibly strong and unexpected closing sequence which was one of the best scenes (with a little added special film effect) that I have seen in horror in years. Will see this film again!!!!
