What's the fuss?,
This review is from: Murder Set Pieces - The Directors Cut (2004), Nick Palumbo, Tony Todd, Gunnar Hansen (DVD)
Being the type of person constantly on the lookout for a decent horror film, some of the reviews of this film(including reviews of other films making reference to this one) grabbed my attention. After tracking this film down finally, I must say I'm somewhat disappointed with the content. There's no plot to speak of. There's just this lunatic photographer jumping from scene to scene, torturing & killing his female victims. There's nothing in this film that engages the viewer's emotions. There's no real interaction between the killer and his victims, and ultimately you have no real sympathy for the victims. In such a case you would alternatively be placing the success(or entertainment value) of this movie on the amount(and quality) of gore you get to see. And comparing it to the hype of this movie, the gore in my opinion was lacking.
Somewhat disturbing film, but not so much so that I'm left disturbed after the final credits start rolling. There's nothing really gripping or even scary about the main character. He's just weird(and not in an entertaining way). This is undoubtedly one of those movies I'd not care to watch again.
