I got to check this film out at the Palm Springs Film Festival. The previous reviews I had read for this were pretty negative so I went into it with admittedly low expectations. So I was pleasantly surprised when I got out having enjoyed the film a great deal. The End follows a group of friends reuniting after 20 years at some property outside of civilization. As the movie progresses it creates a very tense atmosphere when unexplained events begin occurring. Without giving away too much I'll just say the film is more or less a Metaphysical Horror Film with more attention focused on what is happening as opposed to how it happens. It succeeds at creating a grand scope within a simple plot and settings. It is much better than it's current rating given on the site.
Just got back from the LA Premiere (Which Romero was present for, well
at least the end) and I must say despite the negative reviews I've been
reading I was quite entertained. It feels like an old school Romero
flick with some new qualities. Unlike Land its more low budget but that
has little effect on the overall feel. Sure the plot is a bit muddled,
and some of the acting is mediocre, but all in all I enjoyed the film.
The social commentary I felt was among Romero's best.
If what your expecting is the second coming of the Dawn or Day era, you'll be disappointed. But if you want to see a campy fun Romero flick then you'll enjoy this.
Overall: *** out of *****
