I caught the world premiere of this at FrightFest and was glad to have done so. I've been a big fan of the Friday 13th formula for a long time and it's something that's been missing in recent years.
Slasher movies since the 90s have often tried to extend or adapt the formula to keep the genre fresh but in all honesty, the Freddy/Jason format is hard to beat.
Need I explain much? Some randy teens find a disused warehouse and summon a demon, by mistake, which then leads to him dispatching them one by one. I'm not going to get heavy on the story here, it's not what I went to see the movie for but it is a reasonably decent premise when revealed which I'll leave to you to discover.
The acting is good but I'm not going to suggest we have any Oscar-worthy stuff in it. The beautiful Julin, who plays Neesa is pretty solid in her lead role and the rest work well around her.
As a splatter flick, this movie rocks. Knucklebones, the demon, is the real hero and whilst the kills are more Jason-style, as far as the tool set used is concerned, the one-liners and general inventiveness are more from the Elm-street book.
A fun 90 minutes of midnight, popcorn horror. Check it out if it's your thing.
