Storyline

The graduation student Mark is developing a monograph work about contemporary myths, and he interviews the psychiatrist Dr. Theodore Rosen, who was treating Carl Bryce, a deranged teenager that killed his parents twenty years ago. The body of Carl has never been found and there is an urban legend that the spot is a cursed place since slavery times, causing madness and death to those that trespass the area. Mark invites his friends Eric, Tyler, Kristy Goodman and Sharon to help him in his research in the old real estate. Once there, a mysterious killer starts to execute and chase the group, with the survivors trying to escape alive. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My Little Eye all over again
28 March 2005 | by Danny_G13See all my reviews

Indie teen slasher actually entertains but lets itself down with a frankly criminal ending.

It is pretty much staple horror fare throughout, but it does succeed in doing what any half decent film should do, and that is to entertain the viewer.

The story here is a curse apparently engulfs an area of land where a boy allegedly slaughtered his parents. A bunch of students decide to go in and investigate the house of the atrocities and sure enough, 'crazy kids in the dark mansion' ensues and a fight for survival begins.

The characters are pretty mediocre, and fairly unconvincing, but they serve the purposes of the film acceptably. The best character is the killer, as for once he does not lumber slowly, rather, running at pace and looking capable of actually catching victims.

The direction is stable for the course, and hardly inspiring nor dull. It does its job without being anything especially flashy bar a couple of fairly interesting moments.

The plot, if you can call it that, is pure killer chase and cat and mouse. There's nothing original or exciting there.

The movie's strength is its atmosphere. It really does do a reasonable job of making the environment chilling. Sure, it's no Ring or Blair Witch et al, but there are far worse in this field than Trespassing.

Indeed, all the above would surely qualify it as a decent enough way to fill in an evening, if maybe a bit forgettable. Unfortunately, it is not forgettable thanks to an ending on a par with My Little Eye's for sheer lousiness.

Yes indeed, the conclusion of this movie is up there as one of the worst I've ever suffered. There *is* no real conclusion, and as a result you end up totally unsatisfied and replaying the last minute to see if you missed anything.

You didn't.

The ending is rushed, weak, answers nothing, and simply whimpers out, rather than giving us some kind of closure.

I feel quite cheated out of 2 hours because of that finish, I really do. A pathetic and unconsidered way to cop out of giving the audience what they actually deserve.

Thanks to it, this movie was a complete waste of time.
