Editorial Reviews

Riddled with guilt over the loss of his rock star older brother, 16-year-old David Forrester (Raviv Ullman, Phil of the Future) becomes obsessed with death, leading his misguided parents to send him to Driftwood, an "Attitude Adjustment Camp for Troubled Youths" run by the sadistic Captain Doug Kennedy (wrestling legend Diamond Dallas Page) and his brutal young henchman, Yates (Talan Torriero, Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County). Once there, David becomes haunted by the spirit of Jonathan (Connor Ross), a former inmate who met a mysterious end-- a mystery whose resolution could very well be David's only way out... A startling and unpredictable chiller from Tim Sullivan (2001 Maniacs), also starring David Eigenberg (Sex and the City), Lin Shaye (Snakes on a Plane) and Marc McClure (Superman: The Movie).

Rated "R" for violence, language and sexual references.

5.0 out of 5 stars FIRST LOOK: DRIFTWOOD August 18, 2007
Format:DVD
Like one of the kids that finds himself held captive at "Driftwood", it's easy to misjudge Tim Sullivan's new film when you glance at the surface. It's got the kid from the Disney Channel, the wrestler, and that guy from the MTV reality show. It's probably pretty easy for a horror fan to immediately think "teen horror" and dismiss "Driftwood", but "Driftwood" is not "The Covenant in Boot Camp", it's not "Stay Alive In Reform School". If you're willing to toss this film based on the cast you've heard about, then really, "Driftwood" is exactly the kind of movie you need to see. The film opens up with David Forrester (Ricky Ullman) arriving, obviously by force, at the Driftwood boot camp. He soon learns his parents, still reeling from the death of his older brother and after misreading some of David's journal entries, have placed him in the custody of the camp until his 18th birthday. David, and the other boys he will soon meet, are overseen by the vicious Captain Kennedy (Dallas Page).Kennedy runs the camp with both an iron fist and a cruel, forced hierarchy amongst the other boys in the camp that often pits them against one another. It seems the easiest way for Kennedy to get away with his brand of violent discipline is to have the boys beating each other. By his first night in Driftwood, David is having strange visions of a ghostly figure. As the ghostly presence appears again and again, a dark and violent secret begins to reveal itself.Sullivan and his co-writer Chris Kobin really know how to write teen characters that aren't patronizing, dumb, or clichéd. They feel real, and that's something so rare in horror films. With strong writing like this, you need a cast that's going be able to take the character and really make them come alive. Read more ›

Filmmaker Tim Sullivan Shows Us He's More Than Just A Maniac

Imagine you are sixteen years old and you've just lost your idol, best mate and older brother to drugs. Suddenly life seems to only be about death. You've got a hole in you the size of Texas and all you can think about is dying just so you can maybe be with your brother again. To cope with this, you start keeping a blog and pour out your deepest, darkest feelings in the hope of somehow purging yourself of those demons. Then your parents find this blog, read it and assume that you are on the fast track to a massive downfall. And then, to top off all this agony, your parents decide to put you in an 'attitude-adjustment camp' called Driftwood to get you back on the right track. You are there until you turn eighteen years old. You have no rights, no freedom and no hope for escape.

That is the absolute nightmare faced by David Forrester (played by Ricky Ullman, star of the Disney Channel's Phil Of The Future), the protagonist of Driftwood. Upon arriving at the camp, he first meets the man who runs Driftwood (and surely will run David's life), Captain Doug Kennedy (fiercely played by wrestler-turned-actor Diamond Dallas Page). The two characters are almost immediately at loggerheads as David is no shrinking violet. Quite the opposite, David has no problem telling The Captain (or anyone else within earshot) exactly what he thinks of his situation and the camp. David is so strong and obstinate, in fact, that you wince with the anticipation of what awful things await him, for surely he will not be able to hold his tongue.

Very soon after arriving at Driftwood, David starts having incredibly unsettling visions of another young man who is seemingly trying to tell him something.

5.0 out of 5 stars awseome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! August 18, 2007
By j.d.
Format:DVD
this needs to be the best dramatic horror film since the sixth sense! i normally dislike disney stars, and i did not know what to exppect from raviv ullman, but his performance was a pleasant surprise! ddp also gives a great performance and makes you hate him the entire film. the only thing is, fans of tim sullivan, dont expect the crazy, funny, gory, fun, splatstick goresfest snoop doggs hood of horror or 2001 maniacs was, with driftwood tim sullivan shows he can make an awseome movie without gore! driftwood is unbelievable! although it is not gory, it has some creepy visuals, it has one of the creepiest looking gohsts in a long time (not the usual boring long haired evil little girl ghost), but he does not over do it. it is not gory, but it is brutal, and what it doesnt show sometimes realy is more effective. driftwood is not pg-13, kiddie movie. it is creepy, good, smart, and real horror. anothit has ascaer great thing is the atmosphere, the whole feel of the movie, it was shot in a real " correctional facility for kids" and that makes the movie even scarier. it has a a scary feel to it. this is so different than 2001 maniacs! this is one of the best horror movies i have seen in a long time!

Format:DVD
After his brother dies of a drug overdose, a troubled teen David Forrester (Raviv Ullman) is sent to reform school because of his obsession with death. While there, he's tormented by a sadistic camp director , Captain Kennedy (Diamond Dallas Page), and the spirit of previous camper who appeared to be a big fan of the Insane Clown Posse in his former life. David's only hope of surviving this pseudo-prison is to uncover the secret, deadly history and cover-up keeping the ghost around. Conversely, Raviv Ullman's only hope of surviving this movie was to ignore the atrocious overacting from Page, dismiss the complete lack of conclusion, and try to keep a straight face every time the "supernatural" ghostly character showed up looking like a death warmed over juggalo.

All jokes aside, most of the acting in this film was sufficient, if not a bit uneven. The character development was nearly nonexistent. I can't see how anyone could associate with a single stereotypical character (e.g. wannabe gangster Hispanic and Italian), much less the irritatingly smart-mouthed protagonist who was a little too defensive and not nearly as clever as his perceptions led him to believe.

Production values and budget are obviously low, which can be overlooked if not appreciated, but there has to be something else to sink teeth into. Unfortunately, the plot and cast are completely unoriginal, and the "twist" ending is about as surprising as a sunrise. What's more, there is at least one massive plot-hole (i.e. the camper didn't have to die) that makes the ending untenable. The cinematography and special effects were either unspectacular, unenthusiastic, or both. The simple display of a black-and-white overlay does not create a scary scene.
