The 27 Club: Great idea, mediocre execution
2 May 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

I wasn't aware of the 27 Club and it's quite fascinating. By that I mean the real "27 Club" not this film. For those unaware it's a statistical anomaly where a bizarre number of famous musicians have died aged 27. Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, Jim Hendrix, Amy Winehouse and Janis Joplin to mention just a few.

This independent horror bases itself on that which in my eyes is a great concept. But what they do with it, is certainly more of a miss than a hit.

It tells the story of a young man doing a documentary on the 27 Club and how his paths cross with an upcoming musician who he begins to fall for. Cue lots of occult stuff and a very confusing plot and you have this movie.

At time of writing the film has only 46 ratings and this will be its first review, its rating is very low as well and I was hoping I'd be able to counter that a tad with a decent rating. Alas I cannot, it's not "That" bad but its certainly a mess of wasted potential.

Cast? Great Idea? Solid

So where did it go wrong? Well again the plot is a muddled confusing mess. Throughout the film they have black & white deceased celebrity monologues which are awful. And at the end of the film I was left scratching my head about how badly they managed to drop the ball.

For a movie about musicians as well I feel they missed a great opportunity to deliver a stellar soundtrack, to my knowledge there wasn't really one at all.

The 27 Club isn't awful, it's just a demonstration that in the wrong hands even the best ideas turn to mush.

The Good:

Maddisyn Carter

Interesting concept

The Bad:

Dumb "Celebrity" transitions

Elements of the plot don't make much sense
