Find a chair and you can stay, But if you don't you'll go away. The last survives another day... Pop Goes the Weasel. Welcome to Junior's world where six invited guests, trapped in a room, play a deadly game of musical chairs for their lives. Every ten minutes "Pop Goes the Weasel" signals the start of another round, and the horrific end of another player. Sit you live, stand you die- this is Junior's simple, twisted rule. Jack in the Box is a gripping study in psychological terror, unfolding in real-time, as Junior's desperate "guests" struggle with themselves, and each other, for survival. Seven begin the game, only one will end it. Who will it be? Grab a chair and find out. The answer will shock you.Written by
I found this flick under the file, Horror Collection, one that won a lot of prices on horror fests. Can someone explain me why this is classified under horror? There is nothing in this flick, just a scary clock on the wall. The killings are all off screen, you even doesn't see the victims. There isn't even some red stuff in it. And come on, when one of the guys is asking to take shirts of to see if anyone is wired one of the girls doesn't were a bra and takes of her shirt but nothing is shown. If you tease us with nudity then show it.
It is also easily to see that it was a low budget, only a few actors and one place were it was filmed. I would rather call it a psychological suspense flick in stead of horror. Everything you can see coming from miles away. I haven't seen any flicks by this director/writer Frank Kerr but I never will again. Even the characters I couldn't care about. And the end you think, well now it all be revealed, although you know from the first minute what's going on, it isn't. The end was so predictable.
I will give credit to the actors because for some it was there first time but this isn't horror at all. And don't get me wrong, I have said it a thousand times and will say it again, Halloween and Texas Chainsaw didn't had one drip of blood but they worked, you know what I mean? But at the end of the day, pop goes the weasel, nah, pop goes this DVD straight in the box, never to rise again.
