2.0 out of 5 stars Standard After Dark production 18 Aug 2011
By C. J. P
This is a standard After Dark production, if you like the output of After Dark then this will tick all the boxs for you. Horror that is poorly acted, predicatable and not in the least bit scary. It's horror movie making by numbers and very dull.

4.0 out of 5 stars YOUR TASK IS... 28 Jun 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
The movie starts out with a young male, Dixon, (Texas Battle) strolling down the street and then he becomes abducted. He is one of several people who have been abducted and forced to wear pig head mask. As it turns out, all those who were abducted (interesting that they could get them all in one afternoon) have tried out for a reality TV show. The characters are all introduced by playing a portion of their interview tape. They will split $20,000 if they spend the night in THE abandoned Benneville Prison with tasks and scares provided by the producers...and oh yes- 20 homeless people have died there recently.

The cast are hand cuffed, like a chain gang, girl, boy, girl, boy, girl, boy with the black man at the end. There is an Indian(subcontinent)girl (Amara Karan) who is super intelligent and a blond (Ashley Mulheron as Shoe)who isn't. Antonia Campbell-Hughes is delightful as Angel who is a contestant who enjoys frightening the other contestants.

The story goes that the warden, in order to cut costs killed 85 inmates and then later was sentenced to death himself. His soul roams the prison. Or that is at least the story they were told...

Contestants randomly select a chess piece to represent them. Tasks are assigned by a prerecorded tape based on the chess piece...first up the white queen. While the tasks seemed to be at random, they are actually based on the interviews where the contestants disclosed their biggest fear.

As it turns out there are things in the prison the producers didn't count on...and the producers think it is just their network playing a game with them.

Good acting for a B movie. The soundtrack is not overpowering, but it is effective with drum rhythms inconspicuously mimicking heart beats. The horror is mostly pyschological and not blood and guts. Yes, we've seen this type of movie before, and I don't mind watching them again when they are done right.

F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Tasking Watch 11 Oct 2011
After Dark CAN on occasion, come up with a good enjoyable film that whilst not life changing is a fun watch. THIS is not it.

I admit I had high expectations of the film, having read the plotline and what it entailed. That was where the problem lay. Whilst the film is not the worst I have seen, it suffers too hard by trying to use the familiar vein of footage films and then adding a twist that anyone can figure after about 20 minutes into the film.

The characters are two dimensional, there's nothing to them and you really find you don't care if they die, in some instances in the film you actually want their demise to come sooner. The plotline itself is a good idea but the practise is poor, it's sluggish and it takes far too long to get to the whole crux of the film and the ending is one of the poorest I have seen in some time.

Overall it's not completely atrocious, some moments in the film do redeem it but it feels too little too late. My suggestion is do not be tempted to buy it if you see the case cover as it is fundamentally not as good as it looks.

Not a film I can whole heartedly recommend and I feel as a lot less oomph! than was required. Disappointing, a jaded film and not one to buy if you need to save some extra pennies. This is definitely an 'Avoid'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good film 25 Jun 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The plot is pretty much what you would expect with some small twists, and keep me watching. Some of it does did make me gasp and some of it I though was a little cheesy. But I did like it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable new generation horror 22 April 2013
By Mr B
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I missed a few sequences within the film due to a dodgy copy that jumped 10 min at the beggining - but overall a nice spin on the ghost story in an abandoned jail. Reality TV angle with a twist makes this a refreshing new approach. With thjis and the other films made by the same team they have taken the opportunity to focus on the story, the chills and the atmosphere rather than trying to completely close the story off by the end adn explain it all in ahappy ending. If you like this one try HUSK adn Fertile ground.
