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

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

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.

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By DJ Deathwish VINE VOICE on April 22, 2008
Format: DVD
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.

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.

Crazy Eights (James K. Jones, 2006)

"By definition, a psychopath is a man without guilt." One would think that if a screenplay were going to start off in a college psychology class, the writer would at the very least check to make sure that he wasn't substituting the definition of sociopath (one "who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience") for the definition of psychopath (one who "manifests amoral and antisocial behavior, lack of ability to love or establish meaningful relationships, extreme egocentricity, failure to learn from mistakes, etc."; both definitions from [...]). This movie was pretty much destined to be picked up by After Dark Horrorfest from the first moment Jones (The Wreck) and Dan DeLuca (The Jersey Devil), the screenwriters, put pen to paper. We move from one movie with one actress (Eliza Dushku) who's made awful career choices recently to one movie with TWO actresses, Dina Meyer and Traci Lords, who've done the same. And yet somehow, when I compare Crazy Eights to the aforementioned Open Graves, it's a pretty easy choice for which one comes out on top.

This is an ensemble piece based around six friends--Jennifer Jones (Saw IV's Dina Meyer), Lyle Dey (TV character actor George Newbern), Gina Conte (Kinky Business' Traci Lords), Wayne Morrison (screenwriter DeLuca, whom you may know from TV's The Wire), Brent Sykes (Ruffian's Frank Whaley), and Beth Patterson (Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead's Gabrielle Anwar)--who get together for the funeral of a friend. While acting as the executor of his estate, they discover a letter asking them to go uncover a time capsule they all buried twenty years before. When they do, they discover that along with all the detritus of childhood, there's also a body inside.
