Another unoriginal, safe modern horror flick
I was really hoping for a lot more from this modern horror flick, but unfortunately it’s slipped into the subdued, ‘safe’ plot that so many films these days seem to follow and there isn’t an awful lot of actual horror on display. The film feels like it’s building up to something all the way through, but despite some nice visuals throughout; it fails to deliver on its promise. By far the best thing about the film is the atmosphere, and through competent handling from director Dave Payne, Reeker is given the right feel throughout. The central location; a motel in the middle of nowhere, is a good location for horror and a good sense of hopelessness is generated through it and the character’s despair. The cast of characters are the common ‘dopey teens’, who are on their way to a rave (very original). Things go wrong for them when their car breaks down near to the aforementioned motel, and this is followed by a series of strange events. The location is strangely deserted, they can’t get a radio signal and, worst of all, there appears to be something chasing them.
The film starts off with a nice little sequence that sees a family become the victim of…something. From there, the film is suspenseful because you really want to know exactly what is going on in this place where the lead characters have found themselves. I was thinking that there’d be some great revelation just around the corner – but the film makes us wait, wait a bit more and wait again until eventually delivering just about the worst ending a film can have. And just to make things a little bit worse; it’s an ending that a great many horror films have used recently, and every single one of them left me disappointed as well. There are some good effects in the film, however, and despite some dodgy CGI in places; things such as the man with no legs may leave some of the less experienced horror viewers with nightmares. The central baddie (I’m guessing the title villain) is good, but it doesn’t look very good; and I’d have preferred a man in a cape over the rubbish computer effects that the director has opted for. Overall, this film certainly isn’t all bad; but there are far too many flaws for me to call it a success and I don’t think the title is a million miles away from being an apt description of the film.
A must-see-twice film that will make you think…
I saw this at the Johannesburg premiere last night, and the whole cinema seemed to love it.
There were some quality funny moments and a lot of jumps, my only criticism being that it lacked suspense, with some scenes being just a few seconds too long. But I never got bored, as my mind was busy trying to make sense of the plot and predict the “twist” I’d heard all about.
When the twist came, it suddenly made the whole movie so much more freaky. I’m normally good at predicting the end of movies but this one totally got me. Anyone who says the ending is unoriginal obviously didn’t “get” the full extent of the twist. I have to go and see this again!
