Meet the stupidest seven people in the world
9 July 2014 | by bowmanblueSee all my reviews

'Mine Games' tells the tale of seven (typically good-looking American) teens who, while on vacation, stumble upon a mine. And, when they go into the mine, they experience dark, spooky and/or violent visions. It's at this point where any sane person would be heading home there and then. These seven people don't. They just return to their nearby house to 'think things over.' Then, rather than deciding to leave, they return to the mine where the visions get even more nasty and intense.

Guess what happens next? They think it's better to stay and think about things rather than running for the hills. This continues for the best part of the film, i.e. every time they go to the mine, they simply go home again, despite the obvious thing to do being to get the hell out of here.

In fact, I was on the brink of switching it off. I only stuck with it to see how many more times they would do this 'rinse and repeat' formula. In the last ten minutes or so the film does explain all the little things you might have wondered during its ninety minutes runtime (besides the fact that no one thought to leg it!), so I can see the 'point' the film-makers were trying to make.

You may already tell by now that I didn't think much of the film. There are definitely a million better horror films out there. At least I know I'll never watch it again. Unlike the seven protagonists in Mine Games, for they would – no doubt – turn a bad film off, sit there for a moment, then watch it all over again. And then again. And again. And again.
