Halloween madness at its BEST
2 August 2016 | by (West Carson, CA) – See all my reviews

Caught this flick at Midsummer Scream Halloween Fest. If you are a fan of eighties movies you will appreciate the effort put into the Barn. It is a nostalgia film that makes you miss the days of big hair,video stores, malls and arcades. In terms of quality, the film is shot very well with some exceptional camera work and lighting. I actually got on my phone after the film had finished to see what year it was made because parts seemed like real 8mm or 16mm film. Would I call it a great film??? No, but is any film great??? I'd say it was a blast to watch. I heard one person call it a Halloween party movie and it's just that. People will love this or hate it for their own reasons. Some solid acting and my god THE MUSIC! Whoever did the background music (not the band songs) this person knows there stuff let me tell you. It has a sort of 'Planet Terror' look with the film burns that helps sell the vibe even more for me, but may turn off some movie snobs. More than anything it did capture the spirit of Halloween--- not to the degree of Trick r Treat (I'm sure with a bigger budget they might have) but they did a good job none the less. It doesn't look like a big budget Hollywood independent with its overall quality, but I also don't think it would have the same charm if it did. It has its own look and for me it works. I buy it. It's not a hardcore horror film, I would compare this to the likes of the Monster squad meets Night of the demons with an almost magical Little Monster feel to it. My only gripe is that one of the characters def needed more "scream" time before getting the cut -I won't spoil the kills- but I found myself being jaded that this character's bit ended early on. I truly hope they make a sequel to this movie because I want to know what happens next! I give it a 9/10. -1 for killing off my favorite character in the movie!!!
