Reviews

Make-Out With Violence is a genre-bending tale of a boy trying to fulfill his unrequited love for a girl who has risen from the dead. It tells the story of twin brothers Patrick and Carol Darling, newly graduated from high school and struggling to come to terms with the unexplained disappearance of their friend, the bright and beautiful Wendy Hearst. When a drive through the countryside leads to the discovery of Wendy's mysteriously animated corpse, the boys secretly transport the undead Wendy to an empty house in hopes of somehow reviving the girl they once knew, or, failing that, to satisfy their own quest for love amongst the living and the dead...Import in English..

3.0 out of 5 stars A Misleading Title 10 Dec 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Sex and violence are 2 pretty popular cinematic genres so with a title like this you would be expecting a bit of making out, there is none and violence, again there is none. I bought this because i heard it was a zombies film, but i dont think that having just 1 zombie makes it a zombie movie. It's certainly not going into my zombie film collection. Of course i might be wrong about this and you may think differently.
A girl goes missing. She dies and somehow comes back to life. None of this is ever explained.
The 2 main characters in the film (along with the girl) are twin brothers who have just graduated from college. One of the boys has been infatuated with the girl when she was alive and somehow he finds her tied up between two trees. He then brings her home and with his brother decides to keep and look after her but he does all the looking after while the other brother tries to have some kind of life with real people.
The thing going on for this film is you wonder what will happen next. Except there's no tension, no action and if there wasn't a dead/living girl you would have a simple summer drama of people growing up after college.
It has not been rated but i reckon it would be a PG12. For an indie film this looks professionally shot and well acted even if many of the cast are not actual actors. The premise of looking after a zombie is actually something i find interesting but not in this curiousity of a film. Extras include a com, deleted and extended scenes etc. USA release but plays region zero.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm not at all sure what I just watched! Frustrating is a key word to describe this movie! 11 Nov 2010
By Robert Bruce Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The title of my review says it all - I'm not certain what I just watched!!!!!

I give this movie 3 stars. Not because I liked it or because I disliked it or because I felt it was average. I give it this rating because to me 3 stars is the dividing point between a bad rating and a good rating. Due to my uncertainity as to what I just watched I am unable to determine if I liked this movie or disliked this movie.

This is not a horror movie. Yes it has a zombie or undead girl or re-animated dead body but there is no element of horror to this movie. (Although I could understand some people labeling this movie as creepy. Not creepy in a horror sense but in an 'icky' sense.) I do not consider this to be a 'coming of age' movie. If the movie had a message, I'm not at all certain what the message was.

Highlights: The acting of most of the cast was above average as was the dialogue, production and directing. Lowlights: the 'holes' or non-explanation of so much that happens in the movie. I want to say that this movie is a bit slow paced. However being as I'm uncertain what it was I watched, this may be an unfair statement. I don't mind a slow paced movie if I understand the point. Maybe I missed the point the movie was trying to make.

Besides being 'uncertain', how do I feel about the movie? I want to like the movie. Maybe if I understood the point of the movie or if the movie had some explanations for the holes in the plot (how the girl died, who tied her dead body up to a couple of trees after it re-animated, why she re-animated, etc. etc.) I would be able to say I liked the movie. As it is, all I can say is that I feel like I wasted my time watching this movie. I find it frustrating that I can't decide how I feel about this movie.

I don't know whether to recommend this movie or not. I can say don't watch this movie unless you have nothing else to watch and are curious about the movie. I can also agree with one of the other reviews - this is a movie you watch once, maybe twice at most and then never want to see again. That's because whether you decide this is a good movie or a bad movie, I think you will agree there is no 'enjoyment' factor to this movie. In fact, due to what I perceive as many non-explanations regarding the plot concurring with a total non-resolution to the movie's ending, I feel that the two main terms that describe how I feel after watching this movies are 'hollow' and 'frustrated'.

3.0 out of 5 stars disappointed and confused 5 July 2011
By Stuff in that attic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I found out about this movie a few months ago while on one of my musical safari's i got a copy of its sound track and loved it but didn't get to see the movie until yesterday. I was extremely disappointed in the movie, not the quality of the acting or the cinematography but the plot of this movie seemed to go nowhere and there where just so many unexplained points that it just really just left one looking at the clock at the end and wondering what in the hell just happened to the last hour and a halfish of the night (don't remember exact run time). after this one might wonder why my review is still 3 stars well this is because of the a fore mentioned saving graces (i.e. acting and cinematography) along with my love of the soundtrack. All in all id say get the music and either skip the movie or watch it on netflix.
1.0 out of 5 stars Dead In The Water 2 Sep 2012
By Pen Name - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
A child actor narrator and a twee soundtrack (worse than the Lemonheads). As for acting..there is none. Just long slowly panned cameras, close ups of lips that may or may not be getting ready to say something meaningful or not. The living girl in the film has her mouth permanently open in surprise,shock,strong emotion, or ready to bawl. The dead girl (the zombie one,not the living catatonic one) has the best role. She barely moves and doesn't speak. Did I mention that there is a lot close ups and treacly music? Yup..scene after scene after scene. Mostly the movie is about two twin adolescents who have some issues between themselves,which frankly is as boring as this entire film. Not a trace of humor.Not a trace of Life in this movie. View at your own peril.
2.0 out of 5 stars An Honest Take On Make-Out With Violence 5 Dec 2011
By Ethan Gorham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
(Avoiding Spoilers) This is a movie that I've seen 3 times. Each time I've walked away with something different. Rather than try to sum up my reactions, I will merely use those reactions to describe how I feel now.

The first time I saw the movie was in July 2009 at a relatively private screening hosted by some of the Filmmakers themselves. I was exhausted by a month's worth of work and had very little rest that day, so when I watched the movie, I didn't really watch it. I nodded off, just stared into space, stuff of that nature. Not really discerning at all, I know. Which is probably why, after much peer pressure from the surrounding Art-House audience, I subsequently described the film as one of the most underrated I'd seen. I convinced myself that it was great to the point that I was literally dying to see it a second time.

Skip ahead to the film's Home Video release and my first-ever order off Amazon. I watched the film alone this time, without the Art-House audience and without the personal exhaustion. I was fully discerning this time around. My reaction, to say the least, was somewhat drastically different. It was now one of the most overrated and pretentious films I'd ever seen. Maybe a result of disappointment, but pretty much, I now hated the movie.

Skip ahead to yesterday. I still have the Blu Ray, so I decided to stick it in and give it another go, thinking I was maybe too harsh on the film given how much I loved it originally. My feelings have changed, but not so much to the point that I'd call the film anything good. With my best hopes at being as discerning as possible, here is why: Brave concept, but a failure at execution.

The film tries to mix a High School Romantic Comedy, like that of a John Hughes film, with that of a George Romero Zombie flick, and instead crashes under the weight of having two entirely separate movies in one, one of which is far more interesting than the other. The zombie romance is what this movie should've focused on and pretty much stayed on. This is its central problem, and I just thought I'd outline it outright, because most of the problems with the script stem from this.

The Zombie scenes, creepy and disturbing in their own right, are too drastically different from the Romantic Comedy. There is too much of a contrast, and as a result, the actions of many of the characters, particularly that of the Kid, are so radically implausible that much is rendered to the point of being unintentionally funny. Then, there's the many things characters do and say that are only there for the sake of the Script. Its schizophrenic and feels like there's too many fingers in the pie, in that the Directors and Writers didn't have anything set in stone and didn't have any strong sense of singular direction. Because of this, the last line of the movie pretty much plays like the movie has surrendered to its own stupidity and ineptitudes.

Speaking of ineptitude, the acting is of particular note. Granted, considering the film's budget, this is forgivable. Most of its okay, given what the actors are working with, but some of it sticks out like a sore thumb. On the other end of the spectrum, though, Shelley Marie Shartzer's Zombie, was played nicely. Creepy in pretty much every scene she's in.

The soundtrack is awesome, if you ask me. The brightest spot of the film. The track 'West Winds' in particular is one I've loved ever since I saw the film.

The Cinematography is something that shines at points and trudges at others. At no point is it bad, and at some points its pretty damn good, but a strong portion of it looks like something out of a soap opera. It looks too much like video, and on Blu Ray, much of the film's native 720p video sticks out on a 1080p TV. I mean, you can tell when they switched to cameras recording at 1080p and those recording at 720p.

As much as I've dogged onto the writing, I gotta admit, for certain individual scenes, its good. "Let's get awesome!" has made me chuckle each time I've watched the film.

Regarding the Special Features, 'The Formation of Limerent Pictures' is an intelligent and telling Making-Of Documentary on the film, and gives great insights. The Deleted Scenes, well, they were deleted for a reason, and are totally there for fans of the film, if not necessarily me.

Concluding, I don't hate the movie. I just don't like it. I admire the guts of its initial concept, but its execution could be described from mediocre to abysmal overall. As far as first films go, this isn't one of the must-sees, especially for repeated viewings.

1.0 out of 5 stars Annoying waste. 24 Dec 2011
By Valverde - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I was trying to give this movie a chance. For zombie films, it was pretty bad. I mean, sure Wendy standing up at the beginning of the movie was pretty cool...after that, they just play a lot of really annoyingly bad music. I got the biggest migraine from it. (Seriously...ugh)...I kept hoping that the movie would redeem itself. It was like a really really bad indie movie that tried WAYY too hard to be indie with it's useless dialogue that went nowhere empty plot holes. I hear this movie won some awards? Realllyyyy...I don't know what type of drugs are cool with hipsters right now, but they must have been way wasted. It was like the directors just wanted you to hear their ipod playlist. Oh and a few shots of a zombie girl. This movie tried wayyy to hard to the point of embarrassment. I cannot caution people enough, avoid this movie. It's seriously crap.
