First of all, it is very rare that we come across a movie directed by, written by and starring the same person and find it to be a fantastic film.  Unfortunately, this one is no better.  I don’t know Eric Roberts or Jonathan Silverman, but I can say – without a doubt – that Michael Berryman is too good for this movie.

Second of all, we do not like opening sequences that go on far, far, far too long and contain 16 different scenes of the director/writer/star hitting the bong.  We Get It!!  He’s a pothead.  There’s going to be drugs in this movie.  Most likely a party scene – or seven.  He doesn’t manage to keep us engaged in what’s going on in the movie (ie. party, drugs, death, party, drugs, drugs, drugs, death – repeat).  He doesn’t give us a back story for any of the friends he invites over, so we don’t really give a shit when they die.  And although we pretty much knew this movie wasn’t going to get a high score, he totally FUCKED the ending.  I mean, she’s got a scar now?  She’s scarred?  SHE HAS A SCAR?!!!  Are you kidding me?!!

To completely understand my frustration you would have to watch this trash, but I don’t recommend it.  However, to give it some points, it was funny every once in a while.  Also, for such a low budget I-did-everything-by-myself movie, the effects weren’t all that horrible.  Some bodies get cut up and they look quite realistic and quite disgusting.

Little side note about where me and DJ are mentally – a guy’s knee gets cut open and it looks fantastic and we’re laughing and chatting about how impressed we are.  But then some character pukes on the ground and we shudder.  Cause puke is just nasty.

We do not recommend this.  At all.  We only gave it a 16/100.  As far as we can tell though, no one else recommends this movie either, so watch at your own risk.  Or watch Storage 24 instead.  Much better movie.

About TaraRomero

I love 28 Days Later and insist that they are zombies. Infected zombies, but zombies. It's not like they're coming back, are they? No. I also have a strange obsession with Brainscan because I have a stranger obsession with Edward Furlong (mostly pre-drugged up Edward - bless his heart, I've met him and he's lovely and I'll love him till I die). Besides horror I'm addicted to writing about everything I see and think and feel. Also, I read a lot and watch too many game shows. Currently reading Poe and watching Idiotest.
