What a pointless movie
16 May 2009 | by dschmedingSee all my reviews

OK, first of all I have to jump in and support the thesis that a huge bunch of comments in this thread are fake or promotional. Gnaw is by all means a below average horror movie that is so damn full of clichés and at times funny in a definitely unintended way. The plot is already paper thin considering we are talking about a movie thats basic idea is a bunch of kids arriving in a house at the countryside that turns out to be inhabited by cannibals. There is not much gore here for a 2009 horror movie and many scenes are pointless to ridiculous like when a guy is strapped to a table and has his tongue removed with pliers while a girl is watching it through a window. This scene is the essence of uninspired and badly edited horror even ending in her bumping in a bucket and alarming the evil cannibal.

I will give the movie that the cinematography is pretty good and visually it delivers what it can't on the story, suspense or gore side. A really large part of the movie works with no dialog at all and considering its so clichéd and lacking any suspense or surprise that sure is a bad idea. The movie doesn't look but surely feels like a film school project gone wrong so don't bother wasting your time on a uninspired and pointless ten thousandth take on the "Cannibal Weirdos in the last house on the right" premise.
