Alright, I don't know why I should have to say this, but some people still seem not to get it somehow...This is an OLAF ITTENBACH film. That means: laughable-to-mediocre acting, low budget everything, shot to video (or at least in a similar style), and last - but most prominently - ridiculous gore and violence. So, of course, that is precisely what we get in this film.
That said, I hadn't anticipated that this movie would be legitimately creepy at times, but it was. Granted, the other 90% of the time I was laughing or cocking my eyebrow as the convoluted "diabolical plot" story unfolded, so I'm sure anything with the slightest semblance of seriousness was surprising to me. Regardless, the make-up was done extremely well, and the blood was bountiful. The script was silly, but the story is actually pretty bad*ss. I mean, come on, rotting ghosts who vengefully kill anyone who steps into the house in which they were brutally murdered? Awesome.
The first few instances when Rebecca's father appear to her are, for me, very reminiscent of Pascow from Pet Sematary (or Jack from American Werewolf, take your pick) as well as a particular scene from Beetlejuice (which, incidentally, is my favorite movie of all-time). I saw these both at a young age, so perhaps I wouldn't otherwise have the fondness that I do for this flick. But even purely as a gorehound, this one delivers. And no obnoxious sex (or worse yet, rape) scenes. Kudos, Olaf! Oh, another element that I enjoyed (which is also probably because of Beetlejuice) was the lighting. This movie has a lot of blue, which I feel suits/sets the tone well. Sorry/You're welcome for yet another stream-of-consciousness "review".
