Utter Pish


I must admit that I thought I might rather enjoy this movie when it started - given the hammy acting, loud eerie music over every scene and desperate lack of anything you could conceivably call a plot, I thought this might be a decent parody. Believe it or not, this isn't a parody.

Quick summary of the 'plot' - a whole bunch of Scottish people get chibbed in the woods by - wooo, spooky! - some c*nt with a sack on his head. At no point is any attempt made to discuss or uncover this individual's motivation, what drives him to kill, or why he has a cock in a jar back at his murder shack - unless you count the brief mention that he's an "evil farmer" (of course!).

If you want a chuckle, skip to the laughably absurd storytelling scene where we see a flashback to Jethro butchering his surprisingly obliging family - a particularly awful piece of acting that makes "Xena the Warrior Princess" look as real as "The Wire", and yet another reason why the whole film should have been made a comedy. In my opinion a great opportunity was missed by not including the line "Can I Axe you a question?".

As it stands, the only way anyone could see this absolute dross as any kind of achievement is if it was done for a school project. In fact, I strongly suspect that the individual who rated this 10/10 may in fact be the directors mum. Please, stop deluding yourselves that "British film" has to mean "crap film". Watch the b*llocks origin story for a laugh then turn this off and get on with your life.

If you thought the acting in your school drama class was a real cultural experience and your enjoy gallons of red paint and plot holes the size of the ginger chick's eyebrows, then this is for you.

If you like bad, this is the one for you.

To be honest, I haven't read any reviews before watching this thing, shame I haven't. This movie is complete junk, there's no horror in it, the gore is bad and is only slightly better then the lame text.

Now lets start, the movie doesn't bring anything new to the screen, it follow a pattern of other movies like it. Friends going to the wood, gets killed, end of story. However, other movies following this pattern might bring better effects, better dialogue and much better actors. You can pretty much see this movie is junk right at the start when you hear the sound of the knife and few seconds later, the axe, is the same sound. So they took the same audio file and just copy & paste it every time, they didn't bothered to even slightly change the pitch, speed or EQ (something that can be done in almost every free audio software out there) yes, it's that bad.

As I said the dialogues offers nothing new, and the players reading them are just MEH. All monotonic, without highs and lows, all in the same pace one word after the other.

Now lets see some more. In the part when they all sit around the fire and someone tells the story, how can someone screw in this one? I have no idea, they might sit next to the fire, but there's no read evidence for that, the light source is not the fire, or the moon (which supposed to be full) but from external light source, just normal light bulb from the set, dear director, how high were you when filming this one?

Still, I watched it to the end, I actually thought it might bring something in the end, but no. Just the big old disappointment. One last thing, one of the characters had fake eyebrows (painted, or what ever they ladies call it) it was ugly, ugly ugly ugly. Even with that the crew screwed up.

So really, do yourself a favor, don't watch, don't think I might get better at the end, they dialogue is not getting better, the gore is not getting better, the and characters are not evolving and the killer will still be super lame version of Jason Voorhees.

Wow this is bad!

This movie was truly awful. It's a try by the creators to make a Friday the 13th style slasher, but it fails miserably.

The makeup effects for the killing scenes were actually quite good, but if that is the only good thing out of this movie, then it falls completely flat on its face. IF the creators had spent a bit more time on this, planning out the script, more rehearsals for the actors, it might have been better.

The acting... well, honestly there wasn't any. TRULY stupid decisions were made by the actors in this movie, making it almost a joy to see them done in lol. Do yourself a favor and give this one a pass. All the "great" reviews I've seen on this one obviously came from friends/family of the crew/actors.
