Product Description

Six people are brought together at the funeral of a childhood friend. While settling the estate, they discover a map, which leads them on a search for a long forgotten time capsule, at the request of their dead friend. What they discover reawakens repress

Amazon.com

A solid cast of name actors enliven this indie ghost story from the 2007 After Dark Horror Fest. Dina Meyer, Frank Whaley, Traci Lords and Gabrielle Anwar are among a group of friends directed to an abandoned home by instructions left in a will by a deceased companion; naturally, they become trapped inside the structure, which is revealed to be a former hospital where behavioral experiments were conducted in prior decades on scores of children. That the group should have a connection to these experiments should come as no surprise to viewers, nor should the fact that the hospital's vengeful spirits plan to keep their secret safe by eliminating the intruders in Ten Little Indians fashion. In fact, there's very little fresh material for horror fans to gnaw on in Crazy Eights: The dialogue is leaden and the plot constantly forces one or more cast member to irrationally wander alone into the darkness in order to meet their fate. Director James K. Jones should be credited for bringing a professional and atmospheric look to his production, and for some restraint in the gore department, but the picture as a whole treads overly familiar territory and is therefore not particularly frightening. The cast certainly tries hard, especially Whaley and Lords. The sole extra is a handful of webisodes that follow the search for Miss HorrorFest 2007. -- Paul Gaita

Customer Reviews

There is a bit of gore, and certainly a sense of claustrophobia permiates the film.
Robert
This flick was pretty good but I felt it fell short of being a very good or excellent film.
Chad Radford
I like movies that make me think, but I like a little something to back up my thoughts.

Format: DVD
Crazy Eights, an offering in the second year of the After Dark Horror Fest, is a gory spook story that doesn't offer anything that hasn't been seen plenty of times before, and were it not for it's game cast, this flick would be a pure waste of celuloid. Crazy Eights revolves around a group of old friends (Dina Meyer, George Newbern, Traci Lords, Frank Whaley, Burn Notice's Gabrielle Anwar, and The Wire vet Dan DeLuca who also co-wrote this flick) who are re-united after the passing of a friend of theirs. Turns out that all of them were involved in some sort of dark research and experiments, and soon enough all of them become trapped and start to get picked off. What kills Crazy Eights is it's predictability: you know what's going to happen right before it happens. Not to mention that there are so many non-sensical twists and developments that the film ends up becoming almost incomprehensible as it winds down, and the road getting there is more boring than anything else. The grainy look of the film doesn't make matters any better either, but as said before, the cast is good. All of them, even Lords (who pulls off a great and blood-curdling scream), manage to accomplish some great work, but that's the only thing about Crazy Eights worth mentioning really. All in all, you'll certainly see worse horror flicks, but you can certainly do better than what you get here.

Is it stupid? Yes. Does it make sense? Not really. Is it scary? Not at all. So why did I give it 5 stars? Because I had fun watching it and didn't treat it like a serios horror movie. Most of the Horrorfest movies (except for the 1st year) are not what I consider serious horror movies. But I do enjoy watching them. So if you have nothing else better to do on a Friday/Saturday night, pop a big bowl of popcorn, turn the lights down low, and enjoy "Crazy Eights" and some other Horrorfest movies.

I just can not recommend this movie, it's not bad, I just found it to be incredibly boring and formulaic. The cast is really good but they just look bored, and if they were bored making just imagine what kind of fun you're in line for. Nothing of consequence really happens in this movie. There's some blood and off camera kills, nothing special occurs there either. The plot is far from anything new but this movie still could have been something more, an utter disappointment.

I'm not sure I saw the same movie as the other reviewers. This was a bloody awful film. I love psychological thrillers...the promise of this is what drew me to this film. However, it fell flat and left me upset I spent $3.99 and 80 minutes of my time on it. It does not require you to think except to think 'What the...?' Nothing really makes sense, there is no logic as far as why these people had to die (they accidentally killed a little girl while subjects of some crazy doctors...abandoned by their parents, apparently....how is that something they should be punished for as adults?) The ending left me completely baffled. Of course, by then, I'd pretty much given up on the movie. Dina Meyers says 'I'm the only one left' after she destroys the toys that supposedly hold the link to getting them out of the hospital. So, she has to kill herself to set herself free? What? And then suddenly she's a little girl again choosing between a trunk holding redemption and another representing more testing. Again...what?

I agree with the other reviewers comments about Session 9. That was a generally creepy movie and it's twists actually contain logic that you can follow without having to pry open the writer/director's brain or crawl around for scraps on the cutting room floor.

I definitely see NO comparison to The Big Chill. I can't believe it was brought up. TBC is a phenomenal movie with real stars, a great plot, and well thought-out character development. It has nothing in common with Crazy Eights. And this film only boasted Whalley- who's been not been consistently good in films. And, frankly, none of them should have bothered.

The film itself is pretty standard fare: bad karma meets a haunted mental institution. But that isn't what I love about the film. It is, rather, the odd and unsettling mood that it has. The subtle score is really creepy for much of the film. Their is a strange nostalgia to the moodiness that allows the repressed memories of the characters to feel palpable. (And Traci Lords is very MILFy.)

The really bad thing about group-shared repressed memories is the fact that, sooner or later, one member of the group is going to bring those repressed memories back to life and basically ruin the lives of everyone else in the group. That's pretty much what happens here in Crazy Eights. Six old friends are reunited following the death of one member of their Crazy Eights gang from childhood (you'll notice that six plus one makes seven, not eight - hmmm, I wonder if that might be significant?). Anyway, this guy apparently offs himself and then, by way of his will, gets the rest of the gang to come back and open an old time capsule from their childhood. Ah, the power of memory! How it cuts like a knife through one's very soul!

Crazy Eights gives us quite a diverse group of characters, including a kind-hearted padre, a foul-mouthed doctor, and a level-headed college professor. All six of the reunited friends seem to be successful but not exactly well-adjusted, as each of them has recently been haunted by recurring nightmares. The reason for those nightmares slowly begins to emerge after they open the time capsule and find more than childhood toys lurking inside. Despite their sudden, understandable eagerness to get back home to their normal lives, they soon find themselves trapped inside a huge facility of some kind. Herein lurk the real skeletons in their collective closet. Thanks to the opening moments of the film, we viewers already know what this place is, but it takes a while for the characters to figure it out. Put to the psychological test, several of them break down, but none can flee from the dark destiny haunting the corridors of the place. One by one, the group of six is isolated and marked for death.
