If you want a fun dive into the horror genre, check it out. For those that love reality TV, this is the movie for you! I am a huge reality TV fan and it was great seeing some of my old 'stars' get whacked in new and creative ways. For those that DON'T like reality TV, this is ALSO the movie for you! Figure, for every reality star that dies, it's one less show for you to have to worry about! Then you can see your least favorite people on TV get whacked! Either way, it's a win/win situation!
I won't give away the plot but I will say that it is a movie about cheaters getting the fates they deserve. With Ethan Zohn as the standout performance in the movie, all the stars do their best to make the movie that much more entertaining. Directed by Robert Kubilos, the director of over 24 previous films, his ability to manage the egos of the different stars makes the movie a fun romp through the supernatural. Just as important, the movie was co-written by Rob Cesternino (Survivor: Amazon, Survivor: All-Stars), Eric Mittleman (Producer - Comic Book: The Movie and Creature Unknown), and Scott Zakarin (co-producer of Bruce Campbell's 'Man with the Screaming Brain' and producer of Sid Caesar's 'Buried Treasures' DVD's). The three writers put together a story that has an unexpected twist that I had never seen in a horror film before. More importantly, a similar twist was recently used in a big budget production starring Reese Witherspoon!
As a fan of film, this independent film, put together by these creative minds, makes for a new and different movie. Are you going to experience special effects the likes of which are seen in $100 million dollar big budget effects films will make? No. But, with the modest budget that this film was put together for, you will get an entertaining movie that does not have to give up creative integrity to the men in the 'suits' behind SAG movies. Is the acting the quality of $50 million dollar stars? No. But, remember, these are reality stars trying to show their stuff in many of their first forays into movie production and they act their hearts out. Do not expect Shakespeare, instead, enjoy the movie for what it is, a modest budget creation of movie producers and directors that want to make a movie that everyone can enjoy. Does this come across in the film, absolutely!
I recommend this film to anyone who is a fan of horror films, a fan of reality shows, a non-fan of reality shows, and everyone that enjoys a good popcorn flick! Enjoy!
