HASH(0xa50505f4) out of 5 stars Fanboys of horror will love it! Nov. 8 2006
By Freaky_Blond27 - Published on
Format: DVD
Cleverly conceived and very funny, FREAK OUT was a movie I had been wanting to see for a long time. Ever since I heard about it on various horror websites, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and see for myself if it was well worth the glowing praise. Now that I have seen it, I can say I am far from disappointed.

For a little backstory on the film, the movie was shot by its makers over a course of four years by way of a 16mm camera. When completed, it was screened at various college campuses where it brought the house down. It also was one of the few films without distribution to screen at the Fantasia Film Festival where I believe (and I could be wrong) it won The Audience Award.

It's easy to see the appeal. Billed as a comedy for horror fans, the plot concerns an escaped mental patient who meets up with a horror film junkie. The film junkie sees the potential in having a lunatic as a friend, and he and his friend Onky try to create out of the patient a new serial killer in the tradition of a typical slasher movie icon.

The two leads Dan Palmer (Who co-wrote the script) and James Heathcote are excellent and highly likable. Horror fans will love the film's sly inside jokes. Everything from FRIDAY the 13th, to THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, to PSYCHO, to THE EVIL DEAD, to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is represented. What the director manages to achieve given the film's very small budget is a near miracle. And the film's best attribute is the character of the escaped mental patient "Looney." HILARIOUS!

The film is far from technically perfect, but it sure is fun! This horror fanboy loved it!

HASH(0xa545c66c) out of 5 stars You're a bum feeler!!! April 10 2008
By Johny Bottom - Published on
Format: DVD
This movie is what it is, an amateur attempt at making a horror/comedy. There are some laughs, but to be honest they are few and far in between, making the movie seem like it is 4 hours long. Now I'm not saying this is a bad flick, but in the right hands it could have been so much better. A silly plot, lame special effects, unforgetable one-liners, and goofy characters are all B-movie musts, and this flick has it all, but for some reason a lot of the jokes or gags did not transfer to film as well as they did in the director's head.

The writeup on the back of the box promises nudity, there is none, except for a one second scene of a woman who takes her shirt off on a TV screen that our hero is watching.

The escaped mental patient is indeed funny and does have some good moments, he is my favorite character in the movie. I think the main problem with this film is that it just seems to go on and on with no end in sight. Maybe if a half hour or 45 minutes of mindless and useless footage had been removed, this would have been a great little one hour film.

Recommended for B-movie fans, but don't rush out and feel the need to buy it. If you never see this movie, you have still lived a fulfilling life.

HASH(0xa4f9f8f4) out of 5 stars Wacky horror comedy Jan. 23 2008
By Pugmom - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I had high hopes for this one, and must admit I was a little disappointed. For some reason I can't put my finger on, it didn't quite deliver. Maybe it was just TOO silly and unrealistic. Maybe some of the humor, being British, went over my head.

The acting was great- all three of the "stars" played their parts to the hilt. For a low-budget production, the camerawork, lighting, and sound were all great, as were the sets. Horror fans, presumably who the movie is geared towards, will appreciate the homages paid to such classics as "Evil Dead", "Friday the 13th", and "Psycho". At some point I thought it was going to take advantage of the "exploitation of serial killer" angle like "Natural Born Killers", but it didn't go there. Instead it went.... I'm not sure exactly where.

Basically it was enjoyable, definitely offbeat, but nowhere in the league of "Shaun of the Dead" or "Slither" as far as horror comedy.

HASH(0xa4f9f8dc) out of 5 stars I'm sure some people liked this film. March 6 2007
By D. T. Bebout - Published on
Format: DVD
Well, I picked this film up purely by chance in the hopes that it would be another gem like Shawn of the Dead. I gotta say, I had my hopes set a little too high. There were a few decent gags throughout and the tongue-in-cheek send up to B-horror movies was duly noted. However, this film just didn't hold my attention. I got about 30 minutes into the film and wanted to shut it off as it just dragged. I kept watching in the hopes it would get better. It's an odd sensation to want to finish watching a movie since you've "come this far" and on the other hand want the last hour and a half of your life back. I'm sure there are other fans out there who will enjoy this more than I did, but don't get your hopes up.

HASH(0xa500d39c) out of 5 stars Campy fun Nov. 15 2006
By Plurabelle - Published on
Format: DVD
This movie looks and feels like it cost about $20 to make, but for some unknown reason that i haven't quite been able to put my finger on yet, i enjoyed it a great deal. Maybe it was the all-out silliness of it (the killer's main weapon is a spatula, and he has a fondness for Larry Hagman). Maybe it was the fact that it's obvious that everyone involved had a blast making it. The filmakers seem well aware of how ridiculous their plot is, and they seem to revel in it. It's refreshing to see in this day and age of over-processed Hollywood movies."Freak Out" is far from perfect, but there are some genuinely funny moments, with a nice bit of b-grade gore thrown in for good measure. It's a campy bit of fun that was an unexpected bright spot in a seemingly endless sea of boring movies i seem to be coming across lately. Not for everyone, but good for more then a few laughs.
