Trivia

Linnea Quigley was a late addition to the film. She had originally been approached by the director to play Ms. Barnhart, but she couldn't fit it into her schedule. A crew member was asked to play Ms. Barnhart after they failed to find any actress they liked. As luck would have it, when the trailer was released online, Linnea saw it and told her manager that she wanted to do it. They re-shot scenes with Ms. Barnhart after production had already wrapped to include her. She has gone on to praise the film and admits that she was glad she eventually accepted the role. She even urged her fans, "This Halloween, if you don't see it, I'm coming after you with a chainsaw!" See more »

Goofs

The movie has fake "cigarette burn" marks which were used on projected film to indicate when a film reel change was about to happen. However, the fake ones in this movie were placed AFTER the reel changes, making them meaningless. See more »

DIY 80s slasher where the cover art is it's best quality
17 January 2017 | by BrewgnarSee all my reviews

I really wanted to like this movie more...

I've been eyeing this for sometime while it was being crowdfunded on indiegogo. Finally got a chance to watch and was very disappointed. Here are my issues.

My biggest draw to the film was that it was hyped on being a perfect 80s throwback to the VHS era of slashers. They do an OK job with the music, but I wasn't convinced with the film actually taking place in the 80s. The actors just look like modern kids going to an 80s party and they picked out 80s clothes as best as they could from a thrift store. The film itself has cheesy 80s filters that do not not feel genuine.

The practical effects were ehhh. Obviously done on an extremely low budget. Mix of practical and digital that reminds me of movies like Thankskilling. Appreciate the effort though.

Acting was pretty flat and I didn't care for any of the characters. Again super low budget. Even has a cameo with Linnea Quigley who's a seasoned scream queen, but you would have guessed this was her first time on screen.

The story, to be fair has some cool concepts, but gets drawn out way too long. I honestly think I would have been way more excepting of The Barn if it was just a quick short film or part of an anthology.

The only reason I gave this 2 stars was for the movie artwork and merchandise they put out. The art is awesome and alludes to a well polished/stylized film. It is enough to make you want to watch it, but that's about where it ends unfortunately.

To wrap... this is more than just low budget, it's DIY. Many of the other reviews seem like they are connected to the film and are obviously biased. If you are OK with DIY then you may be able to look past a lot of it's flaws, but be warned there are many.
