Joker's Wild: Awful on every level
9 February 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Joker's Wild otherwise known as Joker's Poltergeist otherwise known as American Poltergeist 4: The Curse of the Joker has two major glaring problems. For a start it's absolutely terrible and second, it's in the poorest taste I've seen in years.

First about the initial issue, the movie is terrible. It tells the story of a mass shooting at a cinema, one year later the late owners daughter is reopening but she's haunted by visions.

The plot is naff, it flows about as well as Cambodian plumbing and the two name stars Eric Roberts and Martin "Karate Kid" Kove are conveniently playing characters who are separate from the rest of the cast and could have been filming their scenes from home.

And the second issue, remember the Aurora cinema shooting in 2012? Well this is making a mockery out of that incident. Let's see it's about a mass shooting in a cinema, the lead girls name is Aurora and the shooter has bright orange hair. Add to this lots of back and forth arguments both pro and anti gun control and the whole thing screams poor taste. I don't know what the writers thought they were trying to accomplish here but quite frankly it's sick.

Awful film and in the worst possible taste.

The Good:

Lacy Marie Meyer

The Bad:

The whole thing is in bad taste

Just an all round amateur attempt

Kove/Roberts not even being on set
