TRUTH OR DARE TYPE FILM,
This review is from: Black Waters of Echo's Pond [Blu-ray]  [US Import] (Blu-ray)
The film opens in 1927 with the discovery of Pan's temple. There are instructions for a game which is the Rite of Pandemonium. They create the game, play it, hide it, and all die. In modern times 9 young adults discover the game and play it on isolated Beacon's Island, Maine. The game is similar to truth or dare, except there are illusions and ideas which play to people's worse fears causing deadly rage.
The film is similar to others out there. The early effects and sets were low budget. I had to laugh at the fake opening sunrise. Once the party gets into the game, it becomes interesting, but doesn't bring it home. Perhaps because it promised us a twin foursome but then doesn't deliver.
Good horror rental. 3 1/2 stars
Parental Guide: F-bomb, brief sex, sex talk, shower nudity (Mircea Monroe, worth the wait)
