HASH(0xa8bad5dc) out of 5 stars Somewhat stylish, but off-putting by weak budget, plot, and script. Nov. 12 2005
By En Trance - Published on
Format: DVD
It's definitely not your run of the mill slasher fest, as it's got a weird horror and sci-fi mix, with an interesting premise, but it falls short all across the board as far as the meat and potatoes of a film are concerned.

There apparently did not seem to be a running script, as for much of the film, especially the beginning, it sounded like every line was ad-libbed and improvised, with people barely getting there short and awkward lines out. There is little dialogue, and what there is, sounds like the actors are either unfamiliar with it, or are completely improvising as they go. The plot is basically these kids are at a carnival and get into a beef with some local hoods, then escape on a tiny boat, which sinks and they end up on a strange island, with a deserted hotel that is completely decorated for Xmas and a New Year's Eve party.

The premise is interesting, but the plot isn't taken anywhere, and the movie completely stalls when the scenes shift to a sci-fi cause of all the casualties on the island. The special effects are very low budget, and not helping are the DVD transfer's colors looking rather washed out.

There are a few stylish scenes which save this from being the worst horror film out there. The best is when one of the girls attempts to ride the elevator, and upon pushing one of the floor buttons, it turns to soft mush, and then these arms protrude out of the back of the elevator wall to grab her and suck her in. This scene was ultra cool and it looked like the low budget actually made it look realistic, with the arms bulging through what appears to be painted latex. The cracking paint as the arms swooped in actually made it look very real. Definitely the high point in the film, and one of the better scenes in any horror movie of this time frame.

There's very little interest here, apart from a few scenes, and while it's not the worst of the genre, it's held down from rising above other horror flicks due to it's wooden acting and low budget. You might be interested in seeing it once, but nothing more. There are much better examples of stylish 70's and 80's horror out there.

HASH(0xa893f0cc) out of 5 stars Neat idea, handled poorly. April 20 2009
By Steven Serednesky - Published on
Verified Purchase
This movie's plot is a really neat and original one. Teens go on a boat ride and the boat sinks, trapping them on an island where there's a nice hotel that is decked out with Christmas decorations. Turns out the hotel/island is trapped in time on New Years Eve 1959 because of some experiment that the government was conducting. Neat idea, right? But this is where the coolness ends. Random monsters attack the people and it makes little sense. The makeups are poor. There is little gore. But stiill, the idea was good, it was just handled poorly. Another highlight is the original music by CRY NO MORE, esp the opening sequence with 50's party footage set to their song "Recipie for Romance". Also, the box art itself... with the partying skeleton... is great to have for your collection.
HASH(0xa9de0810) out of 5 stars Lets Do The Time Warp Again Sept. 15 2007
By Stanley Runk - Published on
Format: DVD
Bloody New Year follows a group of people who become stranded on an island where some goofy stuff is going down. Most of the action is set in an old hotel that looks like it's stuck in the 50s and decorated for Christmas. Soon our small group is under attack from various ghostly goings on like ravenous fishing nets, figures jumping out of movie screens, indoor snow storms and vaccuum cleaners. The victims come back as possessed zombie types a la Evil Dead. SPOILER! It seems that the island is indeed stuck in time coz back in 1959 a plane carrying an experimental time warping device(only in the movies, people) crashed on the island thus forever keeping the island in 1959. Of course an island stuck in time doesn't necessarily explain all the supernatural mumbo jumbo, but I'm not about to go and get all logical on a film like this. I guess we have to just assume that not only is the island stuck in time, but is haunted as well. A double whammy! For a very low budgeted horror film this actually has a rather cool and original plot, the problem is that it just isn't handled all that effectively. I didn't think it was bad by any means(more like 3 and a half stars), it succeeded in entertaining me for what that's worth. But for a neat idea like this, something just seemed to be missing or not clicking totally. I would recommend this movie however to fans of low budget horror flicks because it is well worth seeing. It's an obvious labor of love for the film makers, and they certainly didn't let a lack of budget hinder what they wanted to do.

HASH(0xa972bbc4) out of 5 stars I Still Liked It! March 13 2009
By Jay Stone - Published on
Format: DVD
I agree with all the other reviewers - including those who liked it and those who didn't. Low budget - yes. Production values could have been better - yes. Do I still like it - yes! Here's why:

Almost all horror B-movies from this period were low-budget affairs. You have to like horror B-movies and the period or you simply won't enjoy them. What this movie lacks in sophistication, high-priced special effects and acting skills it more than makes up for with imagination and some really interesting and original scare scenes. One reviewer has mentioned the elevator scene. I also liked the way an everyday table cover transforms itself into a killing, evil entity.

Horror is imagination, mood and remembering how spooky the night could be sometimes when you were a kid.

I also liked this movie because it was British. That may not be a point in its favor to someone who is British, but it added just that dash of out-of-the-ordinary for American me. The British also have a strong literary and movie tradition of malevolent spirits, and this movie definitely had plenty of those!

No, this movie will not be one of those twenty titles I will view over and over and never tire of, but I'm glad I viewed it and I may do so again sometime. You just never know...
HASH(0xa8aa115c) out of 5 stars So bad it's good. Oct. 15 2015

I remember seeing this movie as a kid somehow. Later on in life, it would randomly pop up into my head from time to time but I never knew the name of this movie to find it. After 10 years of searching I came across it on YouTube and I'm glad I finally solved the mystery. Haha, I'm not crazy after all! I knew it existed. Not at all a good horror film, it's actually quite terrible, but it gave me a wonderful nostalgic feeling while watching it.
