Director: Christopher Smith(Creep & Severance).

Cast: Melissa George, Liam Hemsworth, Michael Dorman.

What’s It About

A worthless mommy(Melissa George) who sucks at taking care of her child, and likes to sail overboard with her man-friends(I ain’t sure if this word exists 😐 ) finds herself in a shitload of trouble when the yacht she sailed in hits a storm and is forced to board a ocean liner to get to safety. And apparently, she feels like she knows this place and more than everything, there is a lonely killer onboard.

The Pros

The premise of the whole movie is splendid. To avoid spoilers, I’m not elaborating much but it’s pretty interesting. Add some good acting and direction with that and obviously you’ll get a decent enough movie. I’m not that familiar with Melissa George but she did an outstanding job in this film. Michael Dorman and Liam Hemsworth backed her up in a good way.

This movie made me think. And there is these WTF moments that caught me off guard, and at some scenes I was like HOLY SHIT!  and I kept wondering what’s gonna happen next. The action is pretty neat and done in a nice way. There’s these moments when I didn’t know what’s going on and BOOM! Shotgun violence, the terror, the building-up tension, everything just worked for me.

I love angry ocean. When the mighty blue ocean is pissed and is ready to kick any sorts of ship’s ass, I find myself satisfied. In here, the director did a great job visualizing this scene.

I know, what the fuck, right? Not Really, this is nothing compared to what’s coming.

The Cons

So, what’s the point then? The ending revealed us the mystery but what’s the point?

******MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD********
So, they are stuck in a time period and the whole thing is repeating over and over again. What happens to the rest of the world? What happens to the other people around who knows about them? I found myself very unsatisfied with the ending and was expecting a REAL SOLUTION. And there wasn’t any. This bothers me whenever I think of the movie.

Gore/Violence/Nudity

No gore. Quite a good amount of action movie type violence. No REAL nudity but Melissa George has got a nice pair of legs.

Overall

A very entertaining movie that kept me at the edge of my seat. The ending left me blank and asking for more. Great nonetheless. I’ll give this a 7 out of 10.

***UPDATE***

After watching for the second and third time, I picked up all the crazy little details and guess what, IMO, it deserves a 8.5/10 (A).

Cast: Malcolm McDowell, Tyler Mane, Scout Taylor-Compton, Kristana Klebe, Danielle Harris, Hannah Hall, Danny Trejo, Bill Moseley and Sheri Moon Zombie.

(The girls I like is marked red 😉 ).

What’s It About

(The movie basically begins after what I’ve stated below so it doesn’t count as spoilers)

The movie is about a creepy kid from a white trash family. He likes to torture animals and beat up human beings, anyways, he snaps on a halloween night when his mother’s out, he kills his abusive daddy and slutty sister along with her boyfriend. So he is sent to a place where psychos are locked up and is under the charge of Dr. Samuel Loomis. His condition turns bad with time and then he snaps even more, he doesn’t talk to anyone for 15 years and develops a mask making hobby, then when Loomis let go of him and moves on, an incident provides him a chance of escape and he does and thus begin the journey(or movie).

The Pros

I liked the tension or the premise of the movie, it’s creepy and terrifying and provides something scary, not that the movie is scary it just looks sort of intimidating as a horror movie.

Malcolm McDowell did good with his role. So, it is okay to say that he pretty much nailed the role. And also, this is the first time I liked Danny Trejo in something.

Tyler Mane nailed Michael Myers. He was so creepy and perfect that if I was one of his victims, I would’ve died before he could touch me. The mask of Myers worked very nicely.

“Ain’t this creepy?

The Cons

Why the FUCK were the girls so annoying? I literally had a hard time listening to those hot girls. Why were they given such cheesy and annoying lines?

Are you kidding me? Scout’s character screamed and squealed so much for the last 30 minutes that I was temporarily deaf.

The movie was slow. Okay, don’t rush but a 2 hour long slasher flick is a little too much when you could’ve just omitted a few stupid things out.

“You’ll should have demanded for a better script”.

The Violence/Gore

This one’s got some nice, disturbing and bloody kills.  Messy at times. Mmhhmm.

The Nudity

Yes, yes, yes. Danielle showed her goods, so did Klebe and Hall. The award goes to Danielle Harris though.

WHY!?!

This is the first movie I liked Trejo in, and his character was so good to Michael Myers, but why did he kill him? 😦

The Overall Judgement

It was a fun enough horror movie which made one big mistake by being annoying, it is a major crime. It deserves a 57%(C+) from me. I expected more.

Reviews Pending.
