1.0 out of 5 stars NOT SO JOLLY ROGER October 12, 2005
Format:DVD
CROSSBONES is an incredibly bad film that spends most of its time focusing on the bikini clad women and the profane behavior of some minor league rap star (J-Shin?). At any rate, Joe Marino plays bloody pirate RedBeard, who is murdered by a bunch of natives in the beginning of the film, and placed under a blood curse. A group of incredibly bad actors take over as members of a "Survivor" type tv show that looks about as exciting as spin the bottle. Any attempt at plot coherence is shortshifted in the movie's attempts to parody reality shows, but there is no suspense or horror and Marino is especially bad as the vengeful pirate. Truly another example of the degeneration of the horror genre. No wonder they keep remaking classics like THE FOG or HOUSE OF WAX!

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible from beginning to end. September 22, 2005
Format:DVD
"Crossbones" is worse than "Dracula 3000".. That's correct, this masterpiece is worse than the worst film made in the last 15 years. That is quite an accomplishment.

This mess starts off with the long, boring story detailing the origin of the villain of this film; the short guy with the dirty beard who runs around with a knife. He is supposed to be some evil, immortal pirate who kills anybody who:

a. is in his field of vision, especially if you are wearing a skimpy bikini (I've never really found hoochies cut up and covered in their own blood attractive - obviously the director has this fetish)

b. tries to steal his treasure (all pirates have treasures to guard - Arrrgh!)

c. tries to prevent him from recovering his treasure (he lost it when he was imprisoned many years ago, before he became immortal. Arrrgh!)

The victims are a group of idiots who are participating in a "Survivor"-type show. They all decide to frolic on this short killer's island.

What really shocked me about this poorly filmed, cheap D-grade movie was the incredibly racist portrayal of one of the pirate's victims - a rap star of course. All this guy needed was a Watermellon and a bucket of chicken. It was much worse than Coolio's "performance" in Dracula 3000.

Skip this one at all costs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Aarrgghh! November 5, 2005
Format:DVD
Aarrgghh!

The jacket of "Cross Bones" depicts a promising panoramic scene of nautical siege involving a full-masted pirate ship beneath an impressive turbaned skull with eye patch. This scene unaccountably does not appear in the movie. What is offered are a few boring minutes of half-hearted swashbuckling amongst the pirate mateys aboard a remarkably spic-and-span "pirate ship" -- a suspiciously anachronistic trawler bearing no gun ports and possessing limited deck area for swashbuckling. Red Bones, the fearsome pirate chief, grimaces through his moderate vocabulary as if motivated by heart-burn, throwing in an occasional "Aarrgghh!" -- presumably for the pirate effect, or possibly just belching. In his cannibalistic reincarnation (terrifying curse), Bones achieves new heights, raising his performance level to that of having a bowel movement. When the "incredible treasure" is finally unearthed, the delusion is scuttled by a spectacle of garage-sale items. The plot -- movies should have plots -- concerns the filming of a reality show in which the participants spend most of their time spouting senseless bilgewater that leaves one praying for the violent death of the script writer. The only recent movie that degenerates to a category of comparable depths is Asylum Pictures' "War of the Worlds" (actually, any Asylum Pictures production would suffice) in which the film jacket promises entertainment and delivers indigestion. Rating of one star indicates one star too many.

1.0 out of 5 stars This movie sucks!!!!!!! November 24, 2005
Format:DVD
It should be a law against making movies this bad. First the whole plot was completely stupid and the actors should be shot for such a poor performance. Come on I know that it was a low budget movie but just how low can you get! Please do not buy,rent or even look in the direction of this movie if you know whats good for you. Its not worth your time!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Gore and Cheese - I enjoyed it September 7, 2005
Format:DVD
You can't expect too much from a zombie pirate film, and the story was weak in areas, but overall the flick was a fun, cheesy horror movie. Some good scares, beautiful reality show chicks, and pretty good production value. I also think this was the last film by Neil Fredricks, the talented cameraman who shot "The Blair Witch Project".

I'd beware of overly nasty reviews on a web site to purchase a DVD, but written by people who "rented" it (with a Hollywood address). Sure, it's not the best low budget horror film I've seen, but it's worth some blood, gore and Jessie Camacho!

Because my girlfriend loves pirates we rented this dvd, knowing it would be bad but hoping for some fun silliness. But what we got was quite possibly the VERY worse film i have ever seen!!!

The cover looks cool, but what you get is boring and misleading. A "pirate" film, no not really...sure there is a pirate in it, but just one, and he is on screen for a whole 5 or 6 minutes..the dialog is redundant annoying and horrible.

Bad acting

Bad writing

Bad direction

Bad everything

For thier own sakes I hope that anyone involved with this film changed their names in the credits, because there is no excuse for a film like this to EVER get released.

Honestly, I do like and often enjoy, low-budget fare..but come on...I would rather be anally raped in a maximun security jail than sit through this trash again

Shame on you to the filmmakers who just stole my $5 rental fee.
