Editorial Reviews

Good times take a dark turn when longtime friends get together for an '80s-themed murder-mystery party that is soon hijacked by someone from their past. The dinner guests will have to face their lies and secret betrayals as they discover the terrifying lengths to which their host will go to expose the truth.

Customer Reviews

This is not your typical horror movie.
Larry Leach
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.

The story was just really kinda weak but good job Danielle on her first directing experience!

*******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.

About 10 years ago I reviewed a DVD from Producer Mark Waldrep's AIX record label, featuring string-wizard John McEuen. It featured HD sound and HD video, as well as a feature that let you choose the camera angle. (All this was before the advent of Bluray.)

This DVD (not BD) - recorded in January 2003 in a concert hall at Coburn School for Performing Arts in Los Angeles- takes sound engineer Waldrep's product to an even higher level (technically). He's covered Country - with a recent DVD by Mark Chestnut (see my review on Amazon) and here he has vocal jazz.!

Cheryl Bentyne is one of the four members of the "vocalese" group The Manhattan Transfer. While she wasn't one of the original members, she joined them by their 2nd LP. Beginning early in this decade the members went off to do solo projects (this is one) but still get together to tour and make an occasional album. For this special session, arranged by Waldrep, Bentyne is accompanied by long time friends including pianist Corey Allen, who backed her on tour and then married her! Guitar, bass and drums fill out the group. The songs range from standards like "It Might As Well Be Spring" and "They Can't Take That Away From Me" to Annie Ross's "Farmer's Market". Ross was the original vocalese "girl singer" (as part of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross) and Bentyne gets to "vocalese here on this number.

From a musical entertainment viewpoint, the DVD disc succeeds. But there's more - especially for those with high-end equipment - which I don't. On the DVD special features you can learn about each of the musicians, read their discographies and wach 2-5 minute interviews with each of them. There are some short clips of "rehearsal footage" and for one song you can choose various camera angles.

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.

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

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 :)
