Disturbing
Verified purchase
Glad I stumbled upon this movie. I'm a fan of Halloween Haunts and they can really get to me. This movie portrays what is supposed to be an extreme haunt but it's really just a torture house. I found myself on the edge of my seat in some parts of the movie and I was really rooting for these characters to get out of the house too. And again, it's a horror movie with a satisfying ending! I'll always like that.

As I thought about my rating, I couldn't think of one reason not to give the movie 5 stars. It deserves them!

Good and Scary Halloween Film
Verified purchase
Now THAT was scary! I would have liked a little less gore and more Hitchcock-like effects ( you know when the film maker lets your imagination run wild with what you THINK you saw instead of showing us everything); but it was very well done. A solid Halloween flick. Loved how it was set in a town in Illinois too, felt like a nod to Halloween 1978.

Warning: This review has a few minor spoilers and a lot of sass.

Basics: Harper is a 20 something year old female with a bad family history and an abusive boyfriend. She breaks up with him. Then, her friends decide she needs a night out on Halloween. She goes out with them. They end up going to a haunted house that is a place where some strange people like to murder folks. Honestly, Harper going with this group of people was just bad luck for them. It proves that a couple of them might've survived if she hadn't been there at all.

In general, I've seen better horror flicks. It has an interesting premise (a haunt where people are murdered), but it starts out SLOOOOW. By the time the action is picking up, you're probably already through a bag of popcorn and wondering if there's any reason to keep watching it. The villains might've been interesting, but since we never knew much of anything about them, it just felt like an opportunity was lost. I cared very little about the backgrounds to most of the protagonist characters. A couple of them are straight out unlikable ("No, I absolutely do not care about your cousins or what they do for a living."). Sure, that doesn't mean these characters deserve what happens, but it definitely doesn't make you care as much as if they'd been characters you could like. Sam seemed like an afterthought, too.

Plus, there's the egregious problem with most horror movie protags in that they leave weapons behind or simply never pick them up. Let's count them, okay? Knives, rifle, handgun, sledgehammer, board with nails, maglite flashlight, keys on a chain, pitchfork, heavy iron poker, baseball bat... Sure, they use a couple of the weapons, but they also leave them behind. It's like, "Nope, I can only use that weapon once. I must set it free now."

And movie script writers, PLEASE don't use names like "Harper," "Bailey," etc. It tends to make the characters harder to identify with. Go with fairly common names. There will be way more Karens, Amandas, Amys and Michelles watching this movie than anyone named Harper or Bailey. It is more psychologically devastating to see someone killed who has a name you recognize as someone's name you like in real life. Harper...does she have a sister named Piper and a brother named Drummer? Let's stop this trend, please. If you hate your own characters, sure, name them something like this. Otherwise, if you want your audience to identify with your characters, please consider sticking with names that are more common than turning around randomly and pointing at something and deciding to name your character that. Next thing you know, we'll see characters named "Phone," or "Microwave," or "Doodad".

And seriously, there were some really bad editing goofs; broke my immersion in a few places. A big nail through your foot does not suddenly become unimportant when the scene changes. And where..oh where...did the villains find that amazing, miraculous fast-drying glue? Holy heck! I could really use some of that! Amazon, get on that!

In other words, you've seen movies where young people get murdered before..and you've seen better than this. Don't bother. Just re-watch something that's actually good.

Garbage

I rented this based on a ton of positive feedback in the review section on Amazon and ITunes. They must’ve watched a different movie because this was crap. Don’t waste your money.

The 80s called ;they want their "B" rated horror movie back.
Verified purchase
The movie is very predictable. Starts out slow. A group of young adults go out for Halloween and find an out of the way Haunt. They decide to visit. The group has the typical emotional girl that has parent issues, an alpha male jerk and a good guy with a couple of other females. The Haunt is run by clowns who collect their cell phones before entering. From there they are led through building maze running into various horror displays. They start getting hurt and trapped when they determine that it is real.
There are too many scenes of them lost in the maze and losing keys. They run into a clown where instead of grabbing him and tying him up and taking him prisoner to get out, no they decide to treat him like a friend. It doesn't end well. One by one they get killed.
The real spoiler alert: the emotional depressed girl turns into the hero survivor by turning into a rambo chick and takes out most of the clowns. Overall too repetitious, no background on who or why the evil clowns are doing this. It's basically an 80s B rated horror movie.

5 stars as far as scary/teen/slashers go
Verified purchase
i liked the characters and their chemistry...it didnt come across super fake like most teen horror movies. and there is a little twist at the end that i enjoyed. there was gore, but i didnt think it was anything crazy compared to other movies or even tv series (Slasher is a super gorey series that i liked for some reference). other than that if you are a fan of horror then i say this is a pretty good pick!

Enjoyed it from beginning to end

It was scary, creepy and fun. You cared about the main character and she had an interesting back story that kept you rooting for her. Yes, it is formulaic for the most part, but it is creative and creepy with a perfect ending. Most scary movies screw up on the ending, but this gets it right.

Much better than I expected

Low budget horror gets some things right and some things wrong. Spoilers ahead!

The good: The acting, sound and lighting are all pretty good. The effects, while not a lot of them are done well and are practical. The blood effects were almost all really good. Whoever directed this did a really good job setting up most of the shots, especially the neighborhood scenes and the camera work in general is excellent. They also do a decent job using ideas from past horror movies to add some twists to the story. Some you will quickly see coming and others not so much.

The bad: None of the protagonists is very likable and a few of them I didn't care about at all. Oddly, the one who is most likable dies first. The rest just make terrible decisions, one after the other, until the one who is protected by plot armor makes it to the end. She experienced some past horror and now is just paranoid but in this situation their moronic and/or terrified looks at mundane things turns out to be right! That's one of those tropes I wish would just go away. I'm expected to believe that she either acts exactly this way at all times or has a magic ability to detect danger...

The one thing that kept it from getting a higher rating from me was that they seem to touch on at least one of the people running the haunted house isn't exactly a normal looking person. The mask they're wearing gets shattered and it looks like some impossibly old person called "The Witch" in the credits. Outside of that the bad guys are mostly just nameless and faceless nothing and without any sort of motivation or meaning it just left me wasting time wondering what that was all about instead of enjoying the story.

Frustrating but still good enough to recommend if you're looking for some gore.
