I'll give a quick thought or two on each story, and I will try not to spoil them, except for the Title of each segment and what they are generally about.
One of them, 'Safe Haven' I shall spoil a good bit more as it was the only decent one, but the one that needs to be ridiculed the most too. When you read what I have to say, you will understand.
Then after I might, possibly post a few more thoughts on the film in general.
So let's start off with the first part of the Wrap Around Segment:
Boobs. Trying quickly to bring in the male audience, remember guys, SEX SELLS!
But nobody cares, seriously. Nobody actually cares any more.
Yeah, sex is the first thing we see.
And from little pieces of dialogue we piece together that the main character is some sort of private detective, why we saw the whole sex segment I have no idea (unless like I said it was only to get the attention of Male or Lesbian viewers).
The guy then meets up with a girl and breaks into someones house.
This is when we find the set up and tapes we watch throughout the movie.
'Phase 1 Clinical Trials'
The ghost story.
In this story we meet a guy who has just had a new experimental eye camera put in.
He then starts to see ghosts.
At first this one made me quite nervous, it reminded me of an episode of the kids show 'Are You Afraid Of The Dark' I was terrified of when younger for some reason, but then when we saw the ghosts in this segment, my nerves soon dissipated and just thought, oh no. Cliche.
'A Ride In The Park'
The Zombie story.
(Greg Hale & Eduardo Sanchez)
In this segment, a guy goes for a bike ride and encounters Zombies.
This was pure cheese. From the horrible acting to the Zombies themselves.
It also poses the question: Wouldn't the whole world know of this by now?
Eduardo Sanchez is very hit and miss, 'Blair Witch Project', people love or hate.
'Lovely Molly', I absolutely adore. But then he goes and writes things like 'A Ride In The Park', What the hell he was thinking, I have no idea. I mean, it was interesting, to see things from the point of view of a Zombie. (One of them have a camera of course), But at the same time it was poorly executed and extremely unoriginal.
SPOILERS from here on out, until the next segment.
The Demon one.
Remember, spoilers here on out, you have been warned.
This segment was easily the best one, being the longest though you would hope so. It gets a lot more story in, and is extremely interesting. It even keeps the interest up as the action begins, that is until you find out the whole thing behind the story.... Basically the Antichrist/Devil is going to be born.
Then it just gets ridiculously silly, extremely cheesy and the budget must have gone completely under as the actual demon looks horrible. Remember the demon goat on 'Drag Me To Hell' and how obvious it was that it was only a puppet?
At least with that film it was meant to be like that for comedic value, whereas in this it's just cheap and tacky, it looks terrible.
You'll see. If you decide to make your own mind up about watching it after this review.
'Slumber Party Alien Abduction'
The Alien one.
Even though not the most entertaining, it's still the most fun.
Kids have a party, the sister is meant to look after them, the dog has a camera attached to its back. And Aliens come to play.
The Aliens do look pretty creepy and are the best looking monsters in this whole film.
It's a shame I was rooting for them though and the only thing I felt sorry for was the dog.
Who was also the best actor in the whole damn movie.
We then get back to the wrap around story which shows us finally what happened to the guy the private detective was hired to investigate.
Thus brings one of the stupidest endings to ever exist in film history.
Unfortunately this whole film reeked of cheese. And I feel sorry for the mice who fell for it.
With only a few likable characters and actors, and next to no originality whatsoever, it's hard to enjoy the film.
At least the first had some likable people, and creepiness and actual horror to it.
I lose myself when rambling, you've probably noticed before.
I can happily rant on about how good something is and never lose myself, I just risk repeating myself because of how happy I am with it. But when I'm not happy with something, I sometimes repeat myself because I try to think of something good to say but can't think of anything, so I end up rambling, losing myself in what I'm saying. And you get a mess from me, usually which still is better than the film I'm complaining about.
Lets end it here shall we?
In all, this film deserves a
And nothing more.
I've actually added a new tag thanks to this film. It's called ''Seriously WHY?''. I can think of a few other films that should belong in that too.......
