"No dogs were stomped, thrown, or run over by cars (twice), during the making of this motion picture." (Ironically, almost immediately below that text is this: "In Loving Memory of Tofu". Tofu was the dog that played Reggie B in the movie.) See more »

Pretty bad
11 January 2008 | by matches81See all my reviews

The story of "Simon says" is nothing new. Some teenagers in the wood get hunted down by some sicko. So, I didn't expect much anyway in that regard. Still, the movie disappointed me. The teenagers are just your basic clichés for this kind of movie, which is not necessarily bad, but the main problem is the main character, Simon. In my opinion he's just way overdone. The acting is almost like a caricature. So, what should be a threatening character ends up being a (sadly bad) joke. The kills are good, but that's about it. Everything else in this movie just is below par, even for the genre.

Still, with a better Simon this movie could be fun. With that guy it's more a pain to watch than anything else. Avoid this movie.
