Booty Warriors girlfriend?
I just watched this and I can absolutely side with Cyrus and Co-Host on this one. I am a hardcore horror fan and I've always been a massive fan of the anthology genre, but this film simply doesn't have the chops to make it into anywhere near 'classic' status or near classic status, I don't care how much hyperbole it's received from some sources. For one thing, the whole 'fratty' aspect of it as Cyrus said really grates to say the least, there are practically no likeable characters in this (at least for me) although there are a few pairs of nice lookin' titties that much I can say woof!
Also, as Cyrus pointed out, the bombastic effect of the shaky cam technique coupled with all the realistic glitches and blips and bad tracking etc which does lend a more authentic feel to the proceedings given the concept, but makes for some retina-jarring viewing (I am still sitting here with a mild headache nearly an hour later). I thought the acting sans the 3rd story worked well as in it was very believable and the fact there are to my knowledge no name stars in it, makes it far easier to buy into these characters. Just to end this, as far as the stories go, I am telling you now that the first and last stories EASILY make this worth any viewing at all, so I would also like Cyrus and Co-Host give this a 'Rental' (sorry Mr Salisbury, but I ain't wit'cha on this one for once). The second story is technically the weakest/most 'meh', but the third and fourth ones? Crap. Sorry. The third one (outside of a cool effect with the killer) made no sense to me and is let down by make up FX as bad (nay, worse) than the acting. And the fourth story would have worked IF it actually made any goddamn sense in its denouement grrr. That one seriously pissed me off as well as the third story. And yeah, the last story IS good........but a wee bit overrated. Although the way it ends pushes it up a notch.
Oh and one last thing - the whole wraparound story? Ermmmm........the version I saw at least? It wraps up I guess but before the last story and certainly not after. It also doesn't make much in the way of sense if you stop to think about it for more than a few seconds, but hey ho. I will give it this though; it did genuinely creep me out in places and have me on the edge of my seat (pretty much all in the first story). And that actress is indeed a freaky looking gal, she simultaneously gave me the creeps while strangely arousing me too ;-)
If there is ever a sequel to this (which I have no doubt there will be), then I hope they fix the problems that seriously dog the first one. It's a shame, because as a concept and with better middle stories (and less choppy filming and likeable characters) this could have indeed been something worth crowing about.
where can i find this movie??
The concept of the segment about the couple having the Skype conversation sounds like a cool idea;kind of reminds me of this:
Boyfriend watches Girlfriend get murdered on Skype
i really wanna see this movie.
Sorry about posting the wrong trailer. I hope none of you miss out on watching a movie you might enjoy because I screwed up :-(
I love these types of Horror movies. Creepshow and Trick r Treat are my favorites. Still wanna see this one.
@end--Yeah, that's not the trailer for this film. I've contacted the web gurus of Spill. Don't judge the film by whatever that is.
