I too, as others have mentioned am a fan of Indie Horror and Thriller films. This film might qualify as both Indie and Catagorized as Horror.....But, horror in the sense it IS A HORRIBLE FILM. I wasted 91 minutes on it so I don't dare waste another minute more writing a long winded review of this film. I do however, feel, it's my duty to warn other fans and would be watchers of this waste of film to "avoid at all costs" Acting, direction,film quality,lighting, story line and plot are all terrible. All you need to do is watch the first 15 minutes where it's explained to some visitors a particular asylum that houses only the worst of the worst homicidal offenders, which by the way, are all kept in a room with wood doors with a lock on the knob! Nothing more keeping them safe from escape! Yep, watch it to believe it.... Nothing else needs saying. Steer WAY clear of this one folks.
Being a fan of independent movies, and sub-par horror, I was excited to give this a try. After watching the film I was let down. Poor sound, weak story, and a slacking director. The main couple of the film, Alex and Adam, could have been so much more if the director would have focused, especially the girl, she did not retain her character well in points of the movie but they carried the movie at the same time so I have to blame the director there. The killer was lacking. Mask was great. Terrible kills, even for low budget.
Was surprised at the 5-star ratings that people gave this movie. Awful acting and production value through out the whole movie. I guess I shouldn't expect much for such a low budget film. Watch only if you are really bored and have seen everything else.Not much else I can write about it. You have been warned.
Colin Miller (Nicholas Patten) murdered his family when the wicked one entered him and took over. Years later he escapes from a mental institution around Halloween. A group of young adults hang out at the old homestead on Halloween never knowing Colin has escaped. The film tries to create drama with Trevor (Cheyenne Gordon) the moody loner small time drug dealer, who was the only cool character in the film, until people push his buttons. His sister screams at him "NO DRAMA!" He seemed to be set up to be the final guy. As expected the killer shows up and kills people in unimaginative fashion. This is a low budget me-too slasher. The action and Wicked Fest is supposed to take place in Carpenter Falls, Tenn., but the banner in the bar claims it is Nicholasville, Kentucky...about 100 miles or so from the border. The 150 violent psychopaths are guarded by 5 guards, and seemingly never fed. The are held behind a 70 year old wood door with a simple doorknob lock that can be easily opened with a flat object. The film was well made for a low budget indie. They had some minor sound issues in the halls of the building. The problem was that the killer was boring and lacked a unique mark or identity. A man in a burlap mask with a knife. The burlap mask has been done in 'The Strangers, The Orphanage, Trick 'r Treat, The Wolfman Cometh, Night of the Scarecrow, Gatekeeper, Friday the 13th Part 2, The Den, Cross Bearer, and most films that have the word "scarecrow" in them. So if you are going to use a burlap mask, you need to bring your "A" game, which wasn't present in the film. The production lacked any kind of humor making the dialogue dry, outside of the guard guy talk. There is a supernatural "Jason" type of thing associated with the killer, but that was never developed enough to be entertaining. Guide: F-word, sex, something that may pass for nudity.
Lot of bags on this flick. Does anyone remember how bad the acting was in all of the Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Hatchet movies? This is solidly on course with them. The difference is minimal; bad acting, bad direction, bad production, but that is what makes it a good horror/slasher movie for me. And I have seen a lot of stinkers in my time.
