Tough call, but going 3 stars

So the movie has a few decent jump scares, is relatively well shot, and above par acting... Special effects weren't bad either...

That said, this movie started off really strong, and held it through about 1/2 way into the flick... and... then it just devolved into a run of the mill mess of a slasher flick with typical awful choices made by all the characters, total absurdities happening left & right, some scenes that flat out don't even seem to fit with the movie ( poor editing or did they change directors or something 1/2 way through... ), and a garbage resolution that does a poor job of tying up anything and of course the obvious horror teaser at the end ( completely predictable )...

This movie "could" have been an awesome mind bending trip of horror & suspense, but they just botched it...

So... if you are into horror, this is probably one of the better ones currently free on Prime right now, but that's not saying all that much if you watch other horrors on Prime... 2.5 stars from me, and feeling generous, so rounded up to 3...

Promising beginning, utter crap throughout
Verified purchase
This had the potential to be a good scary movie, but it was ruined by the idiocy of the female protagonist, who, when faced with hand to hand combat with a serial killer, thinks it's smart to hit him a glancing blow with the awesome weapon she found, then drop it and running screaming away - rather than making sure she'd beat his head in and couldn't chase her anymore.
If you like that kind of moronic play-out in movies, you're good, but it makes me want to put the deer head (such a stupid thing to fixate on. Obviously this whole abortion of a movie was written around the desire to use antlers as a weapon) on.
I can't believe I watched all the way to the lame ending. I don't recommend it. Stupid on top of stupid (let's not forget the trucker, who when faced with buckets of blood on the floor, ceiling, and walls, thinks "Hmmm, I need to wander around in here.") after an initially promising 20 minutes. I'll remember to give this guy's movie a wide pass in the future.
I want to be scared, not pissed off.

Ruined by the last act
Verified purchase
There are two main characters in this movie. Mary and James. James is a serial killer who murdered women in the worst possible ways, and Mary was his girlfriend who witnessed many of the murders. Mary is released on parole, and gets a job on the overnight shift in an out of the way 24 hour gas mart. The mart is a bit of a puzzle, as it seems seedy, but has huge bathroom and locker areas, so it can be a strange set. Mary is on medication, and she thinks she sees James, but is it real or in her imagination? And James is supposed to be in prison. Leading well into the movie is done very well, and keeps up the suspense and when it seems it is James, it turns out to be her imagination. Most of the gore, and there is a lot of it, is in the last act, and in this Mary does things that will leave the viewer dumbstruck. One may wish to cheer for her demise, if only to reduce any future gene pool contribution, and that is sad for how the character was written. The last act really should have been rewritten and it ruins the whole movie. For instance, if the person is truly in danger, then it is best to simply crawl slowly away rather than get up and run?

Wate of time

As happens so often, good premises are mishandled. Here, we have the perfect set up for a suspenseful nail biter. What we get is a complete and total mess. I expect plot holes in films such as this, but the ones here are so egregious, so blatant, that it becomes laughable. There is nothing to recommend in Open 24 Hours except that you rent something else.

What Time Do You Stay Open Til!

Open 24 Hours Is one of the best horror \Slasher films I've seen all year! Giving the, is it in my mind, or isn't it, film, a fresh take, that's neither, cliche nor predictable!

There's even an homage to one of the 80s most beloved Slasher films! There are some great gore fx,too! They don't try and punk you like other films of this nature do, it's satisfying!

Working the Graveyard Shift
Verified purchase
Set in a remote gas station/convenience store in the U.S. (filmed in Belgrade). present day.

A twenty-something girl gets a job at a convenience store after being released from prison (convicted of arson and attempted murder). Her victim was a serial killer with 35 female victims. She burned the house down trying to kill him after he forced her to watch him murder young women. He was still in prison.

This film is glacial until the last 25 minutes, then picks up the pace. The young woman also has mental illness (paranoia and hallucinations), so she sees thing that aren't real. She tends to lie about things because reality, to her, may be a delusion.

So the movie drags on and the girl screams a lot. It's not implausible but you have to suspend a lot of disbelief. Why doesn't she dial 9-1-1 when she has a chance? Oh, because she's mentally ill. Why not get the shotgun from the cop car? Her mind is too fogged.

You can skip this one (it's formulaic anyway). 2 stars is me being generous.

A great premise, a good female lead, a rough ending.
Verified purchase
I thought the acting of the Mary character was really quite good. The dialogue was decent. Some other reviewers have said it felt low budget which I disagree with. It's a high quality production which has a an unsatisfying ending. There are some bad logic holes here and there which I I would find more tolerable if the film wrapped up better in the end. The victims mother who comes after Mary felt a little too coincidentally timed along with the return of James.

The idea of a horror movie set in a 24 hour gas station run by a young inexperienced girl I think is a really strong premise. I would have liked to see maybe some supernatural element thrown in, like maybe the traumatic visons she was seeing were actually the ghosts of James' past victims coming back to warn her of his return or something, or if they hated her for not saving them they could have lead her into danger etc.

I still enjoyed the ride for the most part and would like to see another go from this director and cast. Let's try something with some paranormal or creature stuff!

I LOVED THIS MOVIE!
Verified purchase
This will be a classic! Edge of your seat action- forever tense. Good acting; believable characters and a story that really could happen. What I especially liked was that the makers of this indie used a limited and common set and made a great movie. As someone who scouts sets for indies, this was clever and really well done. LOVED THIS MOVIE!
