This film could've been made by a 15 year old.....
AND IT WAS SILLY!!!! :)
I went into this not really sure what to expect, but even though I gave the film a 1 it's a perfectly enjoyable experience that very well surprise you at times.
Slaughter Tales tells the story of a young teen that steals a VHS tape (which is of course titled Slaughter Tales) which contains a GREAT EVIL! Beyond this evil this VHS tape is also home to a anthology horror film which we the viewers will be enduring with the main character of the film.
I'm not interested in spoiling anything so if you want to know what stories are featured in this film I'd recommend viewing it yourself, but my favorite segment was the one involving demonic worms. The problems with this film are the constant re-use of areas and actors which can start to make all the stories sort of blend together.
I enjoyed watching Director and star Johnny Dickie perform a rather dangerous stunt that easily could have caused some major damage to his home, and I also enjoyed various characters such as the experienced drunk and the contractor....If he wasn't a contractor then he was a construction work I can't recall, but he certainly deserves a spin off.
I found myself really enjoying this film and I think it can be pretty inspiring for young filmmakers that need an extra push to complete their feature or short film. The biggest thing about this movie is that director Johnny Dickie did what many of us at his age thought of doing...which is to make a feature film, and I think that should be celebrated. I just hope he continues to keep at it so his craft can evolve because Johnny Dickie certainly has the potential.
