Could Have Been Better... MUCH Better!
31 May 2005 | by BigHardcoreRedSee all my reviews

Devon's Ghost: Legend Of The Bloody Boy had potential to be a pretty good "B" horror movie. Instead, what we got was a movie full of atrocious acting and a director who seemed too afraid to get down and dirty with the slashing. Devon (Reza Bahador) could have used a little bit of work as well. He came off as a ticked off Yankees fan rather than the star of a horror movie. The box-cover looked good with the baseball theme and the bat with a saw-blade attached to it. That is really what attracted me to this movie in the first place, but truly failed to deliver when it counted.

The plot was somewhat muddy and clouded, but in general, it seemed that Devon was murdered by his parents. They were eventually acquitted, thanks to a Johnny Cochran type lawyer, who just happens to be the father of Symphony (Karan Ashley). Later, both the parents and the lawyer disappeared without a trace and it is chalked up to the ghost of Devon. Soon after, couples start turning up murdered in a brutal fashion and police wonder whether it is actually the ghost of Devon or some kind of copycat killer.

The worst part of this movie is most definitely the acting. Usually, I can find at least one decent performance but I am sad to say, there was not one here. The worst of which was Kristy Vaughan, who played Genesis. She has absolutely no skill or delivery. I would say she ruined the movie but she was just a drop in the bucket. Johnny Cruz, who played Craig, reminded me of Joseph from King of The Hill, but was not as good an actor.

If I had to find something good about the film, it's best quality is the fight scenes. Skipping over the fact that the "helpless" girl seemed to be somewhat an expert in Kung Fu or something, the fight scenes looked as decent as any other kung fu movie. The sound effects for the fights were bad as well but I do not have the time to nitpick the whole movie. I can not recommend this movie, not even to the hardcore horror "B" Movie fans. 2/10
