13 Eerie (2013)

Directed by Lowell Dean, written by Christian Piers Betley and starring Michael Shanks, Brendan Fehr and Katharine Isabelle.

Plot: Six forensic students take an unfortunate exam on an island previously used for illegal biological testing on prison inmates.


Bad news: There is no “Freddy Claws” – everyone thinks everyone else is an idiot for most of the movie.  The teacher is a HUGE dick.  The zombies are impossible to kill and the rules are so shoddy that while head shots are taking out some of them, it’s apparently not good enough for others.

Good news: People fall so easily that it’s hilarious and a drinking game should be made.  Other parts of it are funny as well.  There’s some nice innovation as far as the zombie kills go.  And the cast is quite good for a low budget picture.

Indifferent news: DJ and I do not agree on the overall quality of the film.  DJ would never watch it again, whereas I thought it was too fun not to watch again.  DJ hated the story and I really liked it.  DJ detested the ending (which was sort of open-ended) and I LOVED it.  Thought it was hilarious.  I also gave it jump/scare points, which DJ did not.

But we both recommend it – me because I thought it was really good and DJ because it entertains well enough for a couple hours.

DJ gives it a 42/100 and I give it a 69.


About TaraRomero

I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero. 1. When I'm alone I like to sing really loudly to songs I know really well and pretend I'm actually good at it. 2. I am a bonified Hiddlestoner. 3. I have kept a journal for the last 25 years and I still own every one of them. 4. I like ordering travel magazines and picking out trips I'm going to take when I'm rich. 5. I'm currently worrying about my brother. I always worry about my brother. He's younger and it's my job. 6. If I knew I was dying in one hour, I would type a very strange email and then go spend time with my family (including my fur babies). 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is The Giant Mechanical Man. 8. I am obsessed with Bob's Burgers and I watch one episode every night before I go to bed. 9. If I had a son I'd name him Malachai (as in Christian Mythology). If I had a daughter I'd name her Antigone (as in Greek Mythology). 10. My favorite band is and I supposed always will be, Matchbox Twenty. However, the music has become more upbeat lately and I don't like it as much. Just being honest.
