!!!WARNING-MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!
Claire Parker(Lauren Currie Lewis) finishes her shift at the gas station and waits for her boyfriend Jimmy(Cody Darbe) to pick her up. However, a strange man called Duke(Chris Ferry) arrives in Jimmy's truck, telling Claire that her boyfriends been held up and that he'll take her home. He then proceeds to do so, and when they get there Duke breaks into the house and brutally murders Claire. Then Claire wakes up back at the gas station, and this time Jimmy picks her up. However, she keeps glimpsing strange figures in the landscape, and Duke keeps popping up to torment her and she relives the same horrors over and over again. Is Claire going mad, or are there sinister powers taking hold of her?
This starts off as very routine slasher fare, but please bear with it, as it leads you down a very twisty path indeed. A kind of cross between Groundhog Day and Carnival Of Souls, this excellent little horror probably gives its audience one twist too many, but its intentions to intrigue and tantalise the audience are admirable.
One modern horror that is very similair to this is 'Dark Corners' starring Thora Birch, but the two films are very stylistically different, and both unique in their own ways.
A very interesting modern horror that attempts to take the slasher genre in new unexpected directions. Very enjoyable. 4 out of 5

Just cheap. There’s something that just doesn’t work about ‘Gruesome’ and I think it’s the lack of budget. The acting is okay and, despite being called ‘Gruesome’ there isn’t that much gore in it (but what there is isn’t too bad), so it has to be the general vibe. The film comes across like it’s been filmed on a cameraphone and the lighting is practically non existent. Every shot has a grey tint to it, like it’s been shot through the wrong filter. I know that’s hardly a major thing, but it just adds to the overall feeling of cheapness.

‘Gruesome’ is about a waitress, who seems to be destined to be stalked (and then murdered!) by some local weirdo. Then, just as the axe – literally – falls on her, she wakes up and has to go through it all over again, only with slight variants on the same theme each time. It probably sounds like a ‘horror version of Groundhog Day’ but it’s probably more akin to (the less well known) ‘The Deaths of Ian Stone’ (although that had a budget!).

Maybe the reason the ‘grey tinge’ bugged me so much is because ‘grey’ is largely regarded as a dull colour. And it just matches the overall feel. I know the story tries to be a little deeper than your average torture p0rn/slasher film and it does try to add a few twists in there for good measure. But nothing can really disguise the fact that this is a cheap offering that offers very little new in terms of horror or storytelling.

Excellent low budget flick which kept me on the edge of my seat right to the end. Really liked the effective use of music to keep the tension and weirdness going. Not really the horror gore fest I was expecting, but turned out to be much more.
Give it a try if you want something different.

The initial idea here is simple but effective. But poor film-making, below par acting and a shakey conclusion make this ultimately rather second rate. The lead actress is acceptable but some horribly hammy supporting performances let her down. That coupled with very dull direction are the films main flaws. The villain - Duke - is completely unconvincing despite opportunities to make him a seriously worrying monster. Some choice pieces of gore make this more horror than thriller but it lacks the scare factor required to make it work. Perhaps worth a look but very unmemorable.
