Basic Idea Executed With Little Flair (Minor Spoilers)

I saw the potential for a good horror film here. Hot young cast; creepy asylum setting; Jen and Sylvia Soska! I ended up importing the DVD into Aus from Amazon Marketplace. It arrived today. I was so excited. So what went wrong?

The opening kills were just weird. I mean, what was that guy doing taking his wife and newborn son into an abandoned mine? I suppose we needed a dead body for our hot young cast to find.

The five "bickering college friends" were probably asked to do a bit too much with the script. I really thought they were ad-libbing a lot of dialog. And some of it was pretty lame: "I like my face." Yeah, nothing's gonna happen to HER face...

The editing felt weird too. Lots of abrupt cuts and transitions, confusing location changes.

In the "pros" column, the bad guys were creepy and threatening, there were a couple of real cringe-inducing torture scenes, and 34 year old Sarah Lind can still pass for a college student. Not a lot to recommend here though.

Oh, and as far as I can tell, none of the film takes place in an asylum.

Gorier Wrong Turn copycat.

Surprisingly enough, I rated this a 4 stars! But here is why: the actors did OK overall, I do believe it was the characters that had problems and not those on set. A lot of blood, plenty clichés, those lovely situations where our heroes could die, but of course they are given all the time in the world to escape and save the day.

If you compare it to other movies, like Wrong Turn, The Hill Have eyes, this one will fall flat. It looks cheaper, it uses the same moves you've seen 1000 times, perhaps C+ movie at best. If they tried better with the development of the bad guys, I think we could have been in for a good ol' B horror. Close but no cigar.

Overall, for a very boring night, it could fill up some time in a somewhat, meh kind of way. Just go without expectations and be ready for a plot that was written too many times already.

Cheers!

Big Salute To Mr. Lauro Chartrand For This Feature, Which Simply Reeks Of Awesomeness!!!

Yesterday (August 11 2016) was the premiere of Blackburn the movie, directed by Lauro David Chartrand, a Legendary Stuntman who has performed stunts in more than 200 films. The Soska Sisters (American Mary 2012, See No Evil 2) were part of the cast. You know that any film or project that involves the beautiful Jen and Sylvia Soska is guaranteed to be one hell of a ride. So, I went to the second show of the day, which was 5.10pm. It also features a great cast : Sarah Lind (WolfCop 2014), Emilie Ullerup (Leprechaun : Origins 2014), Alexander Calvert (Lost After Dark 2015), Jacqueline and Joyce Robbins (The Wicker Man 2006), Lochlyn Munro (Scary Movie 2000), Ken Kirzinger (who played Jason in Freddy vs. Jason), Brad Loree (who played Michael in Halloween: Resurrection), Maja Aro (a stunt performer for huge Hollywood films who also did a stunt for The Soska's debut film, Dead Hooker In A Trunk 2009), Calum Worthy, Zack Peladeau, Brandi Alexander, and Mike Dopud (BloodRayne 2005). I had lots of fun watching the movie, which is filled with great horrific scares, frights, bloody realistic special effects, and tons of fun. I really loved Maja Aro's sinister horrifying looks and performance. Jacqueline and Joyce Robbins stole the show with their creepy performances. Ken and Brad are tough as always, and of course, the Soskas are always the best in what they do (that's why they're the masters in films, whether it's off or on screen). The rest of the cast was amazing, as well. It's a super fun, creepy, cool action horror flick that's a must see for horror fans. I really enjoyed it, and I can't believe it's playing in my country, Malaysia - they don't usually play bloody, gory stuff like this flick. Big salute to Mr. Lauro Chartrand for this feature, which simply reeks of awesomeness!!! Hope to see more horror films from Mr. Lauro!!!
