The Curse of Downers Grove coasts on pulpy fumes thanks to its creators' effective emphasis on circumstantial peril over character-driven drama.
Post-"The Canyons," this appears to be Ellis’ new, second-rate normal.
Alternately idiotic and boring horror thriller.
Co-scripted by a slumming Bret Easton Ellis, The Curse of Downers Grove is all over the place in tone, never managing to decide what kind of film it wants to be.
The Curse of Downers Grove seems to be jumping on that 1990s teen slasher bandwagon two decades too late.
Although it’s being marketed as a horror film, The Curse of Downers Grove turns out to be something else — a messy hash of teen soap opera, stalker thriller and whatnot whose titular, possibly supernatural aspect is basically irrelevant.
Curse of Downer’s Grove is so awful it’s no fair to lay it all at the feet of the co-writer, who didn’t direct or cast this disaster, after all.
