Editorial Reviews

Single mother Christie (Alpha Dog’s, Dominique Swain) faces the most terrifying Christmas Eve ever when she becomes the sole witness to the handiwork of the Picasso Killer (Halloween’s, Udo Kier), a cold-blooded maniac with an eye for beautiful women. Now a citywide blackout has Christie trapped in an isolated office building with a group of strangers as this unstoppable killing force closes in, picking them off one by one in preparation for his ultimate bloody masterpiece. The body count is climbing and a madman is watching in this relentless, suspenseful shocker, also starring Kill Bill’s David Carradine in one of his final roles.

Format: DVD
I just screened this in the store for some of my B-movie horror fans hoping there could be a nice Carradine sleeper here, but this one turned out as bad as the planted reviews here and elsewhere. SIDE BAR: I know Amazon asks to not talk about other reviews here - but both of the glowing write-ups are by the producer of the film and another one-time reviewer.

The mixed-up story follows a serial killer (played by Udo Kier, who is usually great but this was his worst role to date - though this film did come out four years ago) as he stalks his victims in some abandoned city. Abandoned except for Mr. Carradine's security guard and some bad acting cops. It was great to see Carradine again and he deliberately plays the role in his own cheesy way; even when he "gets the axe" customers were laughing at how bad the paper/cardboard axe looked. The story muddles into some bad monologues and very long sequences of empty staircases and "edgy" camera angling.

The picture quality was average and the sound was an arguable 5.1 with subs in Spanish and English. There are no special features and the cover art pushes this as one of Carradine's "final roles" - completely false as he has 25 films completed since this one. Skipper all the way.

I love horror movies. I always have. When I was a kid I'd love to sneak out and watch the late show knowing full well that I'd be frightened and thrilled. I've seen all sorts of horror films, good and bad and even so bad they're good films. But it angers me to find a movie that takes money that could have been better spent on a half decent film wasted on a piece of drek like FALL DOWN DEAD.

If the fact that it was cliché filled were all I might be more forgiving. But this movie has it all when it comes to bad. Bad directing, bad acting, bad writing...just bad.

The story revolves around Christie Wallace (Dominique Swain), a waitress in an all night diner working hard to save up money so she can move out of the city with her daughter. At the same time we have a concurrent tale going on about a serial killer who takes his victims and uses body parts from them in his attempt to create a piece of "art" played by Udo Kier.

After work on Christmas Eve, Christie accidentally comes across Kier and his latest victim staked out on top of a dumpster and sliced and diced. He sees Christie and immediately decides she has the perfect skin for his masterpiece and attempts to kill her as well. Instead, she drops her purse (oops so much for anonymity) and runs for the nearest building.

She convinces the bumbling night watchman (David Carradine completely wasted here) to let her in. They call for help but the two cops are on hand just moments before the power goes out in the building. For some reason the power has been going out all over town in various spots. Okay, I can get this point in the summer with air conditioners and all but Christmas Eve power outages? Come on.

Anyone proficient in Horror 101 knows that a horror movie should never be slow and/or padded with useless dialogue or extended suspense scenes that aren't suspenseful.
These are just some of the failures in FALL DOWN DEAD. Here's an outline of some other examples:
PLOT - Hard to believe. Why does The Picasso Killer have a pencil sketch of Christie, a girl he's never met? How does a 70 year old killer overpower much younger and stronger victims, including our two hero cops? These two cops have the combined intelligence of a slug. Why didn't they take Christie to the police station for her witness statement instead of holding up in the office building? Knowing the killer is nearby and no help is possible? There's more but I don't like to spoil things for future viewers/victims.
ACTING: Dominique Swan starts out well, but the script manages to reduce her character to a boring, wailing cliché. The two cops whose names I deliberately forget, are just plain awful. Period. The late David Carradine has a mercifully brief role as the wanna-be-a-real cop security guard. And then there's veteran character actor Udo Kier who not only chews up the scenery but devours it gleefully---and acts like he's loving every minute of it. It's really bad---shame on Udo!
Jeers to make-up artist (?) Starr Jones for laughably bad make-up.
FALL DOWN DEAD does just that and with a giant thud.

Fall Down Dead does in fact, fall down and dies. The world of potential with a promising storyline somehow gets destroyed with terrible acting. This acting is unforgivably atrocious. Everyone from the woman at the diner, to the cops, to the homeless man outside... everyone delivers poorly executed lines and isn't the least bit believable in saying them. I wasn't sure if the idiot cop stumbling to open the front doors of his station (while a screaming girl is right outside begging the cop to let her in) was a clumsy oaf in taking his time to find the right set of keys, or if he was just acting so badly that he couldn't help it.

To make matters worse, this particular scene was overlong by a good 20 seconds. The woman was RIGHT outside the door while the cop was taking his time (which by the way, actually WAS a solid convincing scream on the part of the girl- the only adequate piece of acting in the film) and we can even SEE the girl begging for her life through the glass because somebody was after her. It's really brutal to watch.

The other cops that eventually enter the building act just as poorly, and the storyline execution is overlong in every situation that arises throughout the film thereby killing all potential for suspense. Highly recommended to avoid this one folks. Long, drawn out, and lacks suspense. It never improves.
