Storyline

In 1989, the boy Martin Bristol has congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis (CIPA), a rare neural disorder, in which the patient does not feel pain, heat or cold. He is abducted by the deranged serial-killer Graham Sutter (Brett Rickaby) and brought to the Sutter Meat & Poultry, an abandoned meat-packing plant in Minersville, Pennsylvania, where Graham slaughters young women that he kidnaps. Five years later, the stubborn seventeen year-old teenager Allison Miller loses her parents and moves to her uncle Jonathan Miller's house near the decrepit plant. Jonathan, his wife Karen and their little daughter Wendy welcome Allison, but the teenager does not give much attention to her new family. Allison likes to run alone on the road and she passes by the meat-packing plant and then she meets the mechanic William "Billy" and has a crush on him. Jonathan advises Allison to avoid running near the old factory and Billy, who is a problematic teenager. Allison does not listen to her ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Least Scary movie of the year
4 March 2011 | by haker85See all my reviews

I heard radio ads for a week saying Bereavement is the Scariest movies of 2011. I can only agree with that statement because it is the only scary movie of 2011 thus far. If Toy Story 3 came out this year, it would have been scarier. I got to see a primary on March 3, 2011. Hundreds of tickets were given out, 30 people showed up. Of those 30 I was confident that some of the girls were screamers... However I was disappointed again. Not a single scream or jump during the entire movie. And I'll be honest, I'm a guy who will jump at anything during a scary movie. But not even the sensation to being scared entered my mind for this movie. The quote from the movie, "If they have not feelings, they can't know fear. But if they can't know fear, why do they run?" pretty well sums it up. You run to get as far away from this horrible film.
