Storyline

In the small town of Wallingham, the year is 2018. A ten-year high school reunion is planned but Wallingham has become a ghost town and big city developers close in with new project ambitions. What few people remain in town are thrill-seekers following ghost stories surrounding the town's abandoned high school. However, even they don't stick around once an old mascot costume of the Wallingham Warthog is unearthed and worn, activating an old curse that brings the mascot back to terrifying life. After the reunion planner' Sabrina has her event reservation canceled at the town's hotel due to the place going out of business, her old classmates Margo and Ronnie convince her to relocate the event at the town's old high school. What started out as a reasonably sound idea turns disastrous as the monster warthog storms through the halls and classrooms killing former students and teachers wherever it finds them. Trapped in a ghost town, with no help of any kind and with most of the old class ... Written by WriteUps1987

Don't go into this expecting a serious movie!
1 November 2018 | by nyssareen-377-200479See all my reviews

I am totally NOT a fan of horror movies, especially not the gory kind, or the stupid spoofs of more recent years (Scary Movie, Disaster Movie etc). I was in the hospital recently and had nothing to do but watch SyFy channel's horror movie marathon, so I ended up watching it. I loved it! I actually cared about the characters and the plot, and laughed the whole way through. It's not a straight up spoof, it's the kind of movie where the characters take the situation as completely genuine, but the movie is not taking itself too seriously (think Ghostbusters).

The acting was perfect for this type of movie, overly dramatic, but not so forced it was annoying. The characters were true to the stereotypes of high school and the behavior/conversations were spot on for school reunions. The plot was silly, but there actually was one that was well thought out and they stuck to it. There were some really cool visuals that would have fit in with a serious action movie, but were made to fit this kind of comedy to perfect effect.

Side note: The scene with the chocolate balls had me laughing so loud my nurse came to check on me. :D

Bottom line, if you're going in to this expecting a serious horror movie (Texas Chainsaw Massacre type) you're going to hate it. If you're going in expecting a straight up parody (Scary Movie type), you may enjoy it, but it's not going to be what you're after. But, if you're looking for something like Little Shop of Horrors or Ghostbusters (this is definitely more gory, comedic gore, but there is still a lot of blood and entrails etc), this is going to be what you're after.
