My roommate is an avid fan of horror movies and spied this anti-gem
whilst browsing through Blockbuster. The movie is about a band that
decides to practice or record their music in a forgotten school house.
First off, the acting. It is obvious that the actors/actresses are
friends of Jeff Thomas. I would be surprised if one of these people had
acting experience outside of high school. With the exception of home
movies and porn, it is impossible for a television screen to display
worse acting. Every participant reads through their lines without
emotion, as if they are reading them from a teleprompt. The acting
provided my friends and I with an element of inadverdent comedy that
had us rolling on the floor. I doubt Jeff was striving for laughter.
The writing. I cannot honestly say that the plot is any less hapless
than several other horror movies you could pluck off of the shelves of
your nearest rental store. However, the dialogue sure as hell is. At
one point, a girlfriend attempting to calm an argument actually says,
with utmost seriousness, "Can't we all just get along?" WTF? If one
character is addressing another for the first time, the introductory
word is the character's first name. It is simply unrealistic and
unnatural. If you were in an alternate universe, you might expect
people to converse in such a way. Nothing else in this movie really
matters. The setting is an old school house yet the furniture is in
great condition without any dust. The beds have clean linens. Someone
even remembered to pay the electric bills. Gotta love the hospitality
of evil demons. The music is a joke. Casio keyboard style suspense
music will play during an "intense" scene and just cut out at any
moment. Whether it fits or not. The mouse squeak is the official mascot
sound of this movie. My final mouse squeak count ended at 1,142.
I suggest you rent this movie because it could motivate you. How? Once you see this used toilet paper square of a movie, you will know that even you can a get film on the shelves at Blockbuster.
