Thankfully. There's actually only 1 song in the whole film, but 3 different versions of it.
''Looking For The Magic'' by the Dwight Twilley Band.
Don't go in to this film purely based on the trailer unless the trailer looks good to you. There's a lot of love and hate for the film, and it just might surprise you.
To me it looked exactly the same as every other home invasion movie, 3 super human strangers wearing masks hunting down some people in a big house, one song constantly playing on repeat, etc etc.
Well, except for the super human aspect it does actually contain them elements, but in different ways.
Let me explain everything......(without spoilers)
Great, I thought, this is going to be another one of those films that rely on pointless tit shots to keep people happy.
Even though there are two completely pointless tit shots, luckily I was wrong.
To introduce the film, a young girl puts on the song I mentioned up there ^^^, on disc repeat.
She's then brutally killed off camera, and we see a guy get out of the shower and come downstairs, he sees the words ''You're Next'' on the glass patio doors and sees the girls dead body sprawled out. He's then bludgeoned to death.
We then cut to a different family going to their home, not too far away from the previous victims home, they are neighbours, but they live in the woods in the middle of nowhere it seems so they aren't exactly next to each other.
Anyway, so yeah that's how the song is repeated throughout, in someone elses house.
And about the strangers? They aren't Superhuman that's for sure.
All throughout the film we are reminded they are just normal human beings like you and me, which does add some unintentional humour, but it's all for the best as it keeps the film a little more light hearted.
Quite early on in the film you find out who is behind the attacks, which I thought was strange as normally a film leaves it to the end. But there is one moment even earlier on when you can figure out who is behind the attacks if you just listen.
It was very well written for what it was too. Yeah of course odd moments popped up in which the characters would do something stupid, but for the most part, they actually behaved how they would if in reality.
And that's what both Jen my girlfriend, and I liked about the film.
I also liked that it reminded me of some older films that have nothing to do with it, and it wasn't even adding hints to make you all nostalgic about the films either.
Erin reminded me of Nancy from 'A Nightmare On Elm Street', an innocent girl, suddenly turned expert survivalist. (Which in the film is explained).
And when one of the remixes of the repeated song comes on, my heart melted for the feel of the 80's.
Even though not the best film, it definitely wasn't the worst, and it was still a bloody good film. Pun intended.
In all I have to give the film an
If only it had better actors, it would have gained an extra point.
There are probably more things I could say, but it's been a couple of days and without spoiling the film I can't think of what to say except it's definitely worth a watch.
If Jen doesn't buy it first, I'll definitely be grabbing it on Blu-Ray.
Never forget the apostrophe, and write magically fast in blood. (I think that's where the superpowers come in haha).
