5.0 out of 5 stars Horror Has a New Director September 10, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
*******THIS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS************
Among Friends is the directorial debut of horror queen Danielle Harris. It would appear to be, on the surface, a similar hash of the tired torture horror that has been overdone since the endless Saw sequels and Hostel ripoffs but it actually brings some fresh air to the subject. The story revolves around a group of 6 friends who have come to a 80's themed party hosted by their friend Bernadette. They are drugged by one of the group and forced to see their sins displayed and they have to answer for them. You see them violate the trusts of others and they violate each other to the deepest core. Before the night is over none of them will ever be the same if they can make it through the night. Ms. Harris called in all of her friends to help with this one and you can see she has a very talented group of friends. Standout performances from Alyssa Lobit, AJ Bowen, and Brianne Davis. Abley supported by Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, Christopher Backus, Kamala Jones, Chris Meyer, Dana Daurey, and Kane Hodder as the limo driver. There are a host of cameos including Ms. Harris in a certain costume she made famous. This is great start for Danielle Harris and I can only hope she make her next film as entertaining as this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not very good December 11, 2013
By bsblurr
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I'm really sorry to Danielle Harris, I love her but this movie is not that good. In fact it's pretty dumb, had some okay scenes and a decent premiss but it just didn't deliver on the shocks. It's just not really thrilling, kinda boring and only good for a one time watch, if that. I can't recommend this. The only reason I gave it three stars is because it had some good special effects for the torture scenes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so bad September 24, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Frankly it' s not a masterpiece, but for a first movie it's not so bad. Danielle Harris is a great scream queen, and with a little more work a good director. And so it's always a pleasure to see her friends, Kane Hodder, Mickael Bieh, Xavier Gens & co.

3.0 out of 5 stars You have to 'get it' to enjoy it. December 3, 2013
Format:DVD
This is not your typical horror movie. It is a low budget production, so don't expect too much. It is a bit warped as well. Reminds me a bit of what Bobcat Goldthwait would direct.
The story is straightforward. The hostess is making her point and punishing her hypocritical 'friends.' It's somewhat gory by today's standards and it's just interesting enough that you have to see how it ends.
Good enough to pass the time and a one-time viewing; not good enough to own a copy.
3.5 stars

2.0 out of 5 stars A SURPRISINGLY HORRIBLE MOVIE... January 15, 2014
By gbv4me
Format:DVD
Let me say that I really, really did not like this movie. The beginning was your typical wild-partying-getting-to-know-ya mess that's required of most horror movies. Once the film reached the start of "the game" and the instructions were given out by the Bernadette character, I was thinking maybe the movie took a turn for the better. Maybe it was starting to get juicy. But then, crash & burn all over again with more disappointment. Everything the friends were being punished for turned out to be sexual in nature...and boy, did they play some raunchy little video clips to prove it. I've seen about a billion horror movies in my lifetime so believe me when I say that I always expect some sex scenes, but I literally heard the word "cum" in this movie about 10 times. Sounded like a porn for a few minutes, so just a tad overboard if you ask me. I was also disappointed when the lesbian character hallucinated that she was starring in a movie...it seemed to drag on for 15 minutes! And did Danielle Harris REALLY need to make an appearance & remind us all that she is in fact the girl from the Halloween movies?! Totally unnecessary, and I felt it made the film feel a little TOO campy. Towards the end of the movie it became obvious that scenes were being stretched out to help fill up an obviously lackluster script. The climax left me with too many unanswered questions - I ended up feeling like I had just watched an 80 minute trailer instead of finishing the entire movie. Overall, I gave it 2 stars for the 20 minutes in the middle that I enjoyed and for the always appreciated presence of AJ Bowen :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Weak plotline....no third act July 11, 2014
Format:DVD
It's not completely awful except for the weak story and the fact that there is no third act whatsoever. It was weird seeing the random cameos of Michael Biehn and Danielle Harris but I guess that was artistic use of the most notable people involved in the project. I thought the acting was fine. The lighting was good and the cinematography was very decent. The story was just really kinda weak but good job Danielle on her first directing experience! I wouldn't watch it again or tell anyone else they have to see it but it wasn't the worst thing I've ever seen either.

With its smarmy, campy over-the-top-in-all-departments verve, Among Friends feels more like the movie Clue (ah, Clue, Leslie Ann Warren, Martin Mull, Christopher Lloyd, Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn...sigh, where have they all gone?) than it does of its torture-porn-as-sick-game siblings, Die and Would You Rather... And Jennifer Blanc is a ringer for Jennifer Anniston. Uncanny! Love the way Alyssa Lobit as sociopath Bernadette keeps cracking her neck, love the way the film starts with Polaroids of all the key actors (except one) dressing up in gaudy formal, and it's only a few minutes in that you realize that they're going to an 80s-theme whodunit murder mystery party, the kind I avoid at all costs. And glad I do because Bernadette is pretty merciless when it comes to reckoning. It's a little odd that the sins she punishes in a pretty much equal way range from furtive masturbation to downright rape...and then the two minute homily about the "epidemic" of "bystander apathy", while noble, felt like it had been cribbed from a social worker's favorite brochure. But don't let that detract from the fun, or you might tune out before actress Dana Daurey appears all of a sudden as Lily, who we all forgot about. At least I did! Very nice touch, and Daurey is a comic gem! And cute to boot! Where did she come from? Wait, I know, heaven.
