Kill Katie Malone is a step above most straight-to-video horror flicks in that the visuals are quality, but it has little more to offer besides that. The movie tells the story of three friends in college that decide to buy a ghost on an online auction site, and receive a mysterious box soon after. But after opening the box, a series of tragic events occur to people around them, and one of the trio tries to discover a means of reversing their fate.

This was the first feature film by director Carlos Ramos Jr, which is a surprise considering how well it was shot. The cinematography was good, as was the color correction. The cast is made up largely of TV actors, so the performances are a bit better than what you'd expect for most low-budget horror movies. Some horror aficionados may also appreciate that the malevolent spirit in the movie almost never appears in a visible form, which gives the movie a similar vibe as the 1982 film "The Entity."

That being said, Kill Katie Malone disappoints when it comes to the story itself. The concept of passing along a curse or evil entity has already been done. The Ring, Drag Me to Hell, and the upcoming Heart-Shaped Box film based on the 2007 novel by Stephen King's son. While the film does offer up a few unique deaths and injuries, it's light on blood for gore fans. The movie simply plods along, with characters that are hard to keep up with, and a generally uninteresting plot. And if you're a Dean Cain fan, you may want to pass on Kill Katie Malone. Despite having his name front and center on the movie's cover, Cain gets a grand total of five minutes of screen time for the entire film.

Considering this was the first major film project by Carlos Ramos, I'd say that he did a quality directing job.

I don't recall the picture on the cover being part of the movie. Three college kids purchase an Irish ghost on-line. The spirit grants them wishes, but also protects them at the cost of others. The ghost, for some reason, likes to redecorate, and is not very good at it. The film is low budget. The gore sequences take place off camera to avoid the idiotic special effects that kill low budget productions. Instead they spent their money on a good script, some fair acting and direction. Better than an Asylum production. Makes for a fair rental.

The movie has the same scare potential as the paranormal series, without the annoyance. The movie sets up for a sequel with some real potential.

Some bad language, no sex, no nudity.

Ok, I turned Kill Katie Malone off way into the movie last night so I could fall asleep in the chair. The movie is that bad. The movie is shot in what is supposed to be a college dorm. So much of this movie is shot in very small rooms. The college isn't even good for atmosphere. At least they could have used some older college with a history, with old architecture. But no, the rooms look quite modern. The three young college kids also must be complete idiots, for after having bought a so called ghost online horrible events soon transpire but the college students simply can't see or feel any "ghostly" connection to any of it. When the ghost visits their small dorm apartments they again stay very DUMB to the point of retardation. A ghost was in the bed or it just trashed the apartment but yet it must have been some fast very moving college senior or junior. Yes, upperclassmen are picking on the lower classmen.

The acting is terrible in this movie as is the dialogue. Dean Cain is supposedly in this movie but what I saw was a cameo at the beginning of the movie. He is the one who put the ghost on the "YouBid" auction website. I don't know if he is in the middle of the movie or not but PHASE FOUR studios milks his name for all it is worth by putting it above the movie title. I assumed Dean Cain would have a measurable part in the movie, but it seems he only had a very minor acting part.

I'll finish this movie later but be forwarned this movie is simply POOR. Yes, some people are killed but even then we don't get to see much. So just don't expect much from this movie. And forget about there being any dramatic tension. This movie is just another "dramatic turd" in a collective punch bowl of bad movies.

Format: DVD
This movie had a lot more "bump" in it than I thought it would, making it a low budget that scored high in the B movie range that might have been really bad but was better than anticipated.

Basically, a group of college students looking for a thrill go online and find a box for sale. It offers your very own ghost. The three laugh and two are apprehensive because of both price and what is offered, but one wants and buys it. When it arrives a few odd things happen, and the oddity turns deadly and makes them wonder what, if anything, can be done about the spirit of someone named Katie Malone.

Like I said, it is a cheap movie. The ending is somewhat disappointing. Dean Cain has a cameo in it despite his high billing. These things are kind of what I expected, however. what I did not expect were some rather creepy moments in the middle of the film, or a few times when I actually wondered what the ghost would want.

This is NOT to say I would buy the film, I thought about it but am still debating that, but watching it was entertaining enough. I am a fan of lower budget horror so that does help with these, but a few of my friends who watched this also seemed to think it was a lot better than expected. It is already coming on the movie channels, too, if that means anything to someone wanting to make up their minds whether or not to pick it up.

I would say watch some of it, the plot is not complex and it solely relies on the horror of the moment. If that does not seem up to par for you, then pass on it.

3.5/5 - noting that this is a grade on lower budget movies, not to be confused with a 3.5 on some big budget scale.
