Review Date: 07 October 2003 My Rating: out of 5

 

This film was pushed back from it's original July UK release date until last week, and I was very curious especially when the packaging boasted of such merits as music sequences that can easily compete with big budget movies and had the bare faced cheek to describe itself as a cross between 'Valentine' and 'Scary Movie'. It was all lies!!!!

This is the worst post-modern horror effort I have ever witnessed!!!! Not to mention that this is NOT a horror movie!!!

Concerning the rise of rap group The Supanatchuralz, from their humble beginnings in the ghetto to D-list minor celebrity, the film is a politically incorrect, racist, sexist, ignorant piece of TRASH!!!!

This is amateur film making at its absolute worst!! We hear the director giving directions in one scene, the actors constantly look at the camera in the middle of shots, dailies are inserted to bump up the running time (either that or the editor is utterly incompetent and can't even label files properly), the sound is often out of sync, frames overlap and the sound effects are more amateur than those used in my college video projects!!!! This is utter garabage!!!!

The characters or should I say the group of people attempting to act in this film should be embarrassed. We have a white girl (who thinks she is black) portrayed as frigid, a fat white guy who is a carbon copy of Jamie Kennedy's 'Randy' from 'Scream' who spouts out fan facts about the horror genre in the middle of unrelated conversations, and even worse is the fact that every black man in this is portrayed as a 'Playa' and every black woman is 'a gold digging Ho'.

I was offended by this film and I've seen some pretty hardcore horror in my time!! I remain absolutely disgusted that people participated in this and that it was ever released especially as it is still partly unedited!!

I could not wait for the killer, who is dressed as a clown, totally unscary and fails to cover up properly (in some scenes a white man plays him and in others a black man, you can tell as his legs are visible) to start butchering the cast and even that was redundant, what with stage acting (everything exaggerated) and very little blood.

OVERALL SUMMARY
This film is absolutely repugnant!!! I am furious that crap like this continues to be churned out when there are so many intelligent and creative film makers struggling to get a break!! For those of you who read my review of 'Altered Species' beware as this is a hundred times worse at least!!!
