He's Out There: Just adding to the reasons I hate kids
13 January 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Stop me if you've heard this one, a group of people go stay in a secluded house within a forest and come under attack from a masked assailant. Original stuff, huh!

He's Out There uses that time tested formula and is a mindless slasher film which brings very little originality to the table.

A mother and her two daughters go to a cabin by the lake on vacation, the husband is running late etc etc etc. It's so cliche it hurts, it's 2018 why do they still make movies like this? Don't get me wrong I'm not putting down the slasher sub-genre, what I mean is a generic slasher film that is a near carbon copy of literally hundreds of others.

The film has it's moments (Though nothing ground breaking) but as I'm sat here writing this review I'm struggling to think of what to write. What can I possibly say about such cookie cutter material?

I will say this, the two children are deeply annoying. Being a person who generally despises kids that will probably come as no surprise but these two little "Darlings" take it to the next level. Annoying, unlikable, belligerent and characters like that just make me root for the bad guy!

If you like slashers you may find enjoyment but be aware you'll go in knowing exactly how the entire movie will play out step by step.

The Good:

Haunting opening

Interesting antagonist

The Bad:

Deeply annoying unlikable children

Very little in the way of originality
