This movie is not even close to a 10/10. It's not as horrible as "Eaters", but 4 stars is about right. It had some tension, but wasn't really scary nor was there gore if that's what you're into. As to jeffstanding and his review, let's see, he joined right after this was released and what a shock, only has one review and it's for this film which he gave 10 stars and claims is the greatest film of the year. It's obviously he worked on this film in some capacity. This film is somewhat entertaining and probably more so if you actually buy into the ridiculous idea that evp's are actually paranormal, despite all factual evidence proving the opposite. It's a typical cheap horror film made with non actors for the most part on a low budget. If you know this going in and just have to see the latest at red box or Netflix, take a watch, but just don't expect to be too impressed.
As I said, while this lil' horror flick may not be mindblowingly scary, or add a "new" level of fear inducing cinematic magic, it does however manage to work in delivering a few thrills and entertainment throughout its short runtime. I know that I'm quite likely to be in the minority with a positive review for this lil' film, but in all honesty I did enjoy this movie, and unlike the majority of horror films these days this one was able to hold my attention throughout. It's a sad day in the horror genre history when one finds themselves hitting the fast forward button more often than not when "attempting" to watch the entirety of a horror film..yet, thats exactly what I find myself doing time and time again when trying to just make it through a film to the end. ..and that is downright pathetic that this is the "norm" for us horror genre fans.. Instead of attempting to make it all the way through to the end of a horror film(and by any means possible even scanning/fast forwarding through large parts of a film)..one should be clicking to check the runtime left and just hoping and praying that it doesn't come to the end because you find yourself loving every minute of the thrill ride that comes from viewing really good horror films. So, while I am not at all claiming that the movie, Trace falls into the latter category of being a thrill ride that the viewer doesn't want to end, it does however manage to "work" in at least holding my attention throughout, as well as my feeling no desire to scan/fast forward through large parts of the movie.
First off, this movie isn't scary. It doesn't have any suspense leading up to the kills, a dreadful atmosphere, or a eerily told story. If you're looking for gore, there is none here. Nothing in this movie is gory. If you're looking for suspense, as I said, it's not here. What is here in abundance is bad acting. Throughout the movie I kept saying, "God, that's some terrible acting." If you want to watch a movie filled with actors who aren't any better than you then by all means watch "Trace." Another thing I didn't like was the swaying cam. That's where the camera isn't shaking but not steady. It kept jarring me out of the movie because it was painfully obvious the cameraman was tipsy. I don't like watching scenes with people lying in bed and the camera is swaying constantly. But that's the type of stuff I saw. The camera was still for less than 30% of the time. I couldn't get into the movie at all. Lastly, the kills were too abrupt to be scary. That's what I don't like about modern horror. There's no suspense leading up to the kills where you're tensing up, thinking, "Oh, this douchebag is gonna get it." Instead, they victim just gets stabbed out of nowhere and the impact of his death is too sudden to feel any emotion about it. In this movie, some of the kills are off-screen and the ones that are on screen aren't original, innovative, or surprising. The characterizations are so lame and the kills so boring that I couldn't even muster up the strength to say, "Meh." when someone got killed. All in all, there's no point in watching this movie. No suspense, no gore, no nudity, no interesting characters, nothing.
It totally worked for me. I don't watch scary movies much. But what I liked was the psychological tension and the fact that we never see "it" but feel the terror. Or at least I felt terror!!! And I liked the premise with the EVP. Different. It had honest characters who made really bad choices. I was emotionally involved. I felt something, which is all I can ask of any art form.
Using information on the Internet some young adults contact a demon who plays "10 Little Indians" with them. That is pretty much it. Heck, the guy from the Internet doesn't even make house calls. The camera angles were bad and shaky. Too many heads in the way of what they were attempting to film. I thought I was watching a bootleg being shown to an overactive bladder convention. The film did have a couple lines that I liked: "Just because I'm hot doesn't mean I'm stupid." " I'm not really a big fan of demons and disembodied voices." And one that didn't work but should: "Hell on Earth is not a metaphor." Once the film got serious I got bored. The low budget prevented any decent special effects. A guy playing with a sound board for much of the film didn't make it. The dialogue also fell off of a cliff. Acting wasn't that great, but then again neither were the lines. Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.
