Here's the scoop. A group of high school seniors, on the weekend of their graduation, are partying and decide to play a particular game in the local cemetery. A young girl appears, unannounced, and wants to join in. They let her. After that, bad things begin to happen to the group. I won't spoil the mechanics but it really was a pretty good idea.
The opening scenes are unremarkable. You meet these kids as they celebrate and party and booze it up and have sex. I had a difficult time keeping them straight and they were all too cute, shapely and good looking. The one girl's father is the town's head cop and I didn't believe him for a minute. I don't believe she would act like she did in front of her dad and I doubt he'd let her. As the girlfriends and boyfriends shifted their allegiances there were so many names tossed back and forth they melted into a murky pool. When I finally started to square them away is when the story started to take shape, but I was already getting antsy. Now the movie shifts into gear and you see, rather plainly, where things are headed. So now it's not as much a question of what's going to happen, but more a question of how. The creepified demon things that appear with increasing frequency throughout have been seen in any number of Japanese movies so there was nothing new there. The directing was hack level. The acting was OK. The production values in general were good enough.
This is a shame. It's a good idea for a story but it was handled poorly. And at an hour fourty three it needed some editing. Had they trimmed the set-up and been more original in various other aspects this could have been a heck of a ride.
I understand the plot revolves around the rhyme/rules of the graveyard game played in the movie; however, it is severely flawed in its application. The altering of time makes it awkward. Some characters remember things and others don't even though they were in the same room and had shared experiences. Also, the ending states what the person must do to overcome; yet, it doesn't work? The fact it doesn't work violates the rules of the game. The whole plot lacks cohesion and doesn't mesh well at all.
The other things that bothered us were the characters. Their actions/attitudes were very pathetic. Why would the movie include a scene where a teenage girl has sex with a store clerk while her friends steal alcohol? I don't know many teens who would go to that extent for beer. I understand the viewer normally suspends some disbelief in a horror movie; but a little bit of realism wouldn't hurt. And I don't know many parents (the parent in the movie was the town sherrif) who would be OK with their child half naked and making out with their boyfriend on the counter while their buddy drinks a beer.
A few other details bothered us but they were mainly about the settings...why the jeans were left on under the hospital gown (we are assuming for the sake of the actresses modesty). Or why a person could walk around a hospital and not see ONE worker to question her about why she is out of bed. Or how machines can function on their own accord?
On a side note, when did ghosts start wearing duct tape on their clothing? Is duct tape suppose to mean something scary or envoke terror into the hearts of the viewer?Read more ›
It had some high points, it had some low points, had they have cut it down for time, or filled it with more interesting things than, guy walks about his job and getting high, or the classic, girl makes out with cashier, possibly has sex with him while her friends have a happy beer-store robbing montage.
The ending was a let down as well, i had hoped it would have explained a bit more about the main plot/ had an after credits moment of a certain something something revenge hint. oh well.

I liked it because it was different. Starts a little slow with lots of negative character development, but then it twists into a story that is pretty original. Read morePublished 28 days ago by Igor
