As far as slasher flicks go, this one isn’t bad. While the plot and dialogue are exactly what you’d expect, the production values are high and the actors are all game. This is a B movie, but at the very high end of B movies. Call it a B+ movie. It probably could have been released in theaters around Halloween and done well for itself.
If I was judging it against every other mainstream movie I’ve seen this year I’d have to give it two stars, but Roger Ebert taught us that we shouldn’t do that– we should judge a movie for what it is and what it’s trying to be. In that light I give it three stars.
One oddity of its release is that, while the dialogue is all in English, all text in the movie is in Dutch, which you’ll see in the clip at the bottom if you decide to watch it.
