The best "budget" slasher film out there
on 5 November 2012
If this film had have been done on a budget of $10m I would have gladly given it a solid 6 or 7 out of 10 but for the $5000 it took to make, it deserves a full 10 out of 10 plus.
How on earth do you produce a film as good as this for so little cash? There's plenty of scares, some decent gore, an absolutely brilliant looking killer, seriously, they don't come much creepier than this one and the gore effects are top notch.
It doesn't look cheap either, the camera work is fairly competent and looks far in excess of its meagre budget.
The only quibbles I have is with acting, which isn't the best if I'm honest but hey, for $5000 this is superb. And there a few plot points that are never fully explained or explored (who the killer is and how he came to be for eg) but I guess that leaves open an avenue for the sequel.
I'd like to see what this director can do with a real budget. It was far better than some of the big budget dross that Hollywood churns out these days (Prom night hang your head in shame).
Don't go into this expecting a big budget slasher, ala Scream and just take it for what it is, and remember, this whole film only cost $5000, it deserves far more recognition that it's getting.
