What you'd expect and nothing more
20 April 2004 | by kuriboSee all my reviews

Okay, first of all, anyone watching this film expecting to see a horror masterpiece should be ashamed of themselves. Much like 'Dr. Giggles,' 'Jack Frost' (and Jack Frost 2) and 'Killer Rats,' this is one of those guilty pleasures that you'll only see after you've exhausted your supply of slasher flicks. It's not up to the par of those old Friday the 13th flicks that I so love, but it's not the worst thing ever committed to film. My roommate (also a fan of cheesy horror) asked me if it was good or not. I told her that she has no right to question my taste in horror, since she was the one that rented Ankle Biters. (midget vampires lol)

That said, anyone who's ever seen a slasher flick will guess the ending the EXACT MOMENT the real killer is first shown on screen. There are red herrings galore, but none of them seem to work.

There are actually some great one-liners in this film. And the dead girl rotating around the ski lift was funny, but I wish we could have seen the killer trying to jump up and retrieve the body. That would have been comedy gold.

The acting ranges from decent to downright abysmal, but the script-writing was pretty pathetic. There are numerous plot holes, (One character is actually SEEN DEAD and then is walking around like nothing ever happened.) a great number of stale scenes that add nothing, and predictable as all-get-out sequences. You can guess within the first 10 minutes which characters will die.

By the way, the scriptwriters should win an award for making the blonde girl the biggest jerk girlfriend in all of movie history. Likewise, her boyfriend should win an award for dumbest boyfriend ever.

The blood effects are tolerable, the CGI scene at the end was probably the absolute worst abuse of computer graphics ever put on celluloid.

In short, it's no Friday the 13th, it's not Dr. Giggles, but at least it's not Ankle Biters. Don't expect a horror masterpiece, and you'll probably enjoy wasting 90 minutes on this flick.

** out of ****
