One of the most boring movies I've seen recently
10 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

This movie starts off with a voice-over speaking about how what your about to see is based on a true story, which is all bs of course, in real life this movie is based on the 1976 movie with the same name which was indeed based on a true story, but only loosely.

The characters in this movie are all fictional however taking place in current date and it's more of a sequel than it is a remake as the original movie play a big part in this movie in terms of it's legend and the fact that the first murder occur in a annual screening of the movie.

All that really doesn't matter in the end I suppose as long as the movie entertains, which it really does not.

It's incredibly boring (even the many sex-scenes in it are boring), and to say that it's filled with clichés is a understatement; THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN (2014) is a cliché first and a movie second.

I actually expected a decent movie when I saw Anthony Anderson and Gary Cole was in it, but they are not in it all that much.

Anthony Anderson who I personally think is one of the funniest comedians plays a serious role this time, and when I say serious I don't mean dramatic I mean that his sheriff character appears to have a stick up his butt and wouldn't know a joke if his life depended on it. Pure and simply he's boring as a piece of wood in this one, and has the charm of it as well.

Gary Cole is not much better, he seems incredibly bored through out and that's all he does.

But the rest of the (unknown) cast is not that much better.

Okay music though but that doesn't help this uninspired waste of film whatsoever.

If you like really boring horror movies with poor from point a to point b story telling and a cast that look like they'd rather go to Pizza Hut than to make this movie, then yeah maybe this is for you, if you prefer your horrors to entertain than watch something else.
