Naturally the friends are in a house miles from the closest town, land-lines and cell-phones don't work but the movie has some clever twists including the friends growing paranoia towards the next one and a few are dispatched by the madman when they attempt to escape. The movie entertains and has some gross but not over-the-top gross kills and is worth a rental-and for someone named Jason out there in Amazonland there are some howlers including Hollywood style shemanigans with a 9MM handgun.
As a gun-owner I know that certain safety rules apply when holding a pistol but there are some hi-jinks with the loaded gun that in the real world would lead to certain injury or death to one of them, and holding the gun with your finger on the trigger while pointing it at an adversary is a Hollywood and tv fiction. You only point a gun at something you intend to destroy. Don't mean to preach but it irks me when I see this.
The setting was a perfect choice, as were the props.
The actors were fairly talented, most of them with experience in other shows and movies. I was also surprised by how attractive they were. The plot was also decent, and I was honestly surprised by who the survivor was, and how they became so.
Those that haven't read the synopsis would probably find it somewhat confusing. Since I did, I understand the beginning pretty well, but my family found it a bit confusing.
There wasn't anything too horrible, or I'm sure that I would've rated lower. The reason that I gave it a 4 was because while there was no one thing that was super horrible, there were a few things that added up. For example, I felt that considering that the climax, and much of the story was strong, the ending seemed to lack the closure that any ending should have.
Overall, I give this movie a grade of a B+/A- (88-90%). Any horror movie fans would enjoy this movie.
Anyway, at around three in the morning, an unseen madman descends on the house and forces the kids to participate in a social experiment. The hypothesis: One of them is capable of killing everyone else in order to survive. If more than one is left alive by 6:00 am, the madman makes it clear that everyone will die.
The college kids aren't allowed to leave the house, and anyone that tries will either be killed on the spot or fall victim to a booby trap. They all must take part in this. As the three hours pass, paranoia, distrust, and resentment grow amongst the college kids. Old wounds open. Feelings, both good and bad (mostly bad), arise. Some think they have made alliances, but in reality, they all have to fend for themselves. Why are they being put through this? What lesson is this madman trying to teach? Why is he teaching it?
I thought the idea of subjecting people to dangerous mind games had been exhausted with the "Saw" films, but I guess I was wrong.Read more ›
Kill Theory was an effective slasher film with a good story,You already know who the killer is and why they're doing it, so no twist ending, or is there?
A guy has to cut three of his friends off a rope while climbing mountains in order to save himself.His attorney makes a plea deal and he has to take it "to his dismay"..After being in an institution for three years he is released .To prove a point that anyone would do the same "kill in order to stay alive" he devises an experiment in which a houseful of college grads can only have one survivor by 6 am or they all die. It's very claustrophobic and tense,and somewhat like "The Thing" who can they trust,who has the inner beast? The fact that there are three couples in the house only makes it more complicated and interesting.
Agnes Bruckner who is somewhat of a scream queen is very good in her role but the stand out is Daniel Franzese who plays the fat insecure single guy.The power struggles and switching of alliances is fun to watch so are the gore effects that are good and realistic.
So far one of my favorites from this years 8 ,but then again I'm a slasher lover.
