4.0 out of 5 stars YOUR TASK IS... July 24 2011
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The movie starts out with a young male, Dixon, (Texas Battle) strolling down the street and then he becomes abducted. He is one of several people who have been abducted and forced to wear pig head mask. As it turns out, all those who were abducted (interesting that they could get them all in one afternoon) have tried out for a reality TV show. The characters are all introduced by playing a portion of their interview tape. They will split $20,000 if they spend the night in abandoned Benneville Prison with tasks and scares provided by the producers...and oh yes- 20 homeless people have died there recently.

The cast are hand cuffed, like a chain gang, girl, boy, girl, boy, girl, boy with the black man at the end. There is an Indian(subcontinent)girl (Amara Karan) who is super intelligent and a blond (Ashley Mulheron as Shoe)who isn't. Antonia Campbell-Hughes is delightful as Angel who is a contestant who enjoys frightening the other contestants.

The story goes that the warden, in order to cut costs killed 85 inmates and then later was sentenced to death himself. His soul roams the prison. Or that is at least the story they were told...

Contestants randomly select a chess piece to represent them. Tasks are assigned by a prerecorded tape based on the chess piece...first up the white queen. While the tasks seemed to be at random, they are actually based on the interviews where the contestants disclosed their biggest fear.

As it turns out there are things in the prison the producers didn't count on...and the producers think it is just their network playing a game with them.

Good acting for a B movie. The soundtrack is not overpowering, but it is effective with drum rhythms inconspicuously mimicking heart beats. The horror is mostly pyschological and not blood and guts. Yes, we've seen this type of movie before, and I don't mind watching them again when they are done right.

F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Movie Review! - [...] - @tss5078 May 11 2013
By Todd Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
From the companies that brough you Horrorfest, comes the Task, a unique story with a twist. I really liked how ambitious the Task was and just what lengths it went to in order to try and trick the audience. It's unusal to find good writing or much of anything that isn't predictable in a film like this, and I really didn't expect it to be as entertaining as it was. This unique story begins with seven people being kidnapped and brought to a remote location to compete in a reality TV show, that combines Survivor, Fear Factor, and Ghost Hunters. The game requires the contests to spend one night locked in an abandon prison, with a seedy reputation. The contests must complete the tasks that are put in front of them to win a large cash award. The contests were as different as can be leading to a fantastic dynamic between them, it's a shame they didn't build on that dynamic and show more interaction between characters, that only would have added to the story. The cast, as usual, is mostly newcomers, but talented newcomers, who do an excellent job in making this story believable. A movie like the Task really comes down to the cast, because if they're not believable the movie ends up being only good for a few laughs. The cast was good, the plot was great, but what really put the film over the top was it's terrific ending, which was very reminiscent of another Lionsgate classic, Saw. It's an ending you shouldn't see coming, but one that really brings the whole thing together.

3.0 out of 5 stars How many movies can we rip off ? July 26 2011
By Dayna Newman/Slasher Diva - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I just watched The Task and was very disappointed.
It had elements of several other horror films but none of it added up to a good movie.

First you have the Rip Off of the reality show with the people in the RV ala Wrong Turn 2 and even have the last guy standing from that film 'Texas Battle' in the cast.

I can't mention the other films that it ripped off or it will give away too much of the movie.
There was very little gore,the storyline was obviously lacking and it was very slow paced.

it even ripped off the old MTV show Room Raiders.
The atmosphere in the abandoned prison was creepy I will give it that and the use of camera was not bad but the entire effort was a fail as far as I'm concerned.The fat guy in the RV where all the producers and technicians were working made me cringe he was so annoying ,I was hoping he would go outside and smoke or something and get offed.

Bottom line,This year,so far watch Seconds Apart,Husk and even Prowl.but I say skip this unless you have money to throw away and there is nothing else to watch.

2.0 out of 5 stars UNREALITY TV July 31 2011
By Michael Butts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Imagine a TV reality show that kidnaps their contestants, doesn't get them to sign any kind of waivers, dumps them into an abandoned prison, and only offers a shared $20,000 prize! That's what you get in THE TASK, the latest entry in the sinking After Dark originals. After a promising series of films earlier this year, ADO has dropped two bombs on us--SCREAM OF THE BANSHEE and the marginally better THE TASK.
Aside from the incredulity of the plot, the movie suffers from pandering filler, really bad lighting and every cliché in the cinematic book. This premise has been done several times recently, with no memorable films to warrant its continuance. Even worse, you know from the beginning where the movie is going and a preposterous "twist" ending is inevitable. THE TASK's ending is dismally bad.
The actors are trapped in Horror 101 caricatures, with no real standouts.
I had high hopes that ADO's would set new standards in modern horror, but if THE TASK is a preview of what's to come, this is one viewer who might jump ship!
4.0 out of 5 stars The Task Oct. 10 2013
By A. Pierre - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This movie is people get kidnapped on the street and placed on a game show where they must spend a night in an abandoned prison for a cash prize. Of course they rigged the jail with effects and there is a story going around that a sadistic warden haunts it. I really enjoyed this film with a few tense moments. The ending just ruined it for me. I have no idea what the hell they were trying to do with an ending like that but it sucked. Worth a watch but be prepared to say what the hell at the end because I don't understand it either.
