Editorial Reviews

Seven college students visit a secluded vacation home to celebrate graduation and become trapped in a deadly game by a mysterious killer. Forced to kill one another by 6 A.M. the following morning, only one of them can remain alive. Whoever remains will be allowed to walk away with his or her life. However, if morning comes and more than one are still breathing, everyone dies. Friends and couples must test their trust, as the clock ticks away. Some will fight for love, some to survive; but all will change, because deep down...we're all killers.

3.0 out of 5 stars I SHOULD BE ASHAMED...... May 2, 2010
.....that I liked this movie but I did and it was fun while I watched it but sort of evaporates after it's over. It's like Saw but with college kids. The story is a theory of a madman that a group of people when trapped and given an ultimatum that only one of the group will live to be set free and the friends will have to kill each other. And they do, including one guy who's head is pulverized to a bloody pulp by a shovel.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lot better than I expected June 14, 2010
By Irene
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was a bit doubtful about this movie. I purchased it on a whim, because I enjoy horror movies and the plot seemed interesting. However, upon reading some of the reviews I regretted my decision. To my surprise, I enjoyed most of the movie.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kill Theory Indeed! March 19, 2010
I saw this movie like 4 months ago caught me by suprise it was included in the horrorfest. It kinda reminds you of saw with the whole what would you do to survive thing but it is easily seperated. I think its one of the best at horrorfest hands down its even so good I think it would have survived a wide theater release. Perfect date movie if your girl likes to be scared.

3.0 out of 5 stars Is There Evidence to Support it? April 18, 2010
It begins with a vanload of college kids driving down a lone road in the middle of the woods. They all begin that way, don't they? But wait, it gets even better. They arrive at a summer lake house, which just happens to be located at least fifty miles from the nearest police or fire station, and they immediately find all the booze. After a night of drinking and partying and more drinking, most of them go off and have sex. The only exception is the one guy whose lack of experience in the girlfriend department is in direct proportion to his extra weight. He's left to play video games all by himself, the poor guy. What's worse, he has to watch as two of his friends get hot and heavy directly outside his window.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Movie Review! - [...] February 24, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I usually don't expect much from the Horrorfest movies, because some of them were just that bad. Kill Theory is different thou, it is everything you could want in this genre and more. It has a great storyline, a great cast, and an amazing twist at the end. This one is definitely worth seeing!

3.0 out of 5 stars Saw Jr. December 18, 2010
If you like the SAW movies then this should be right up your ally.


The movie is about a man who had to kill two of his friends during a rock climbing expidition. He made the choice to kill them both to save himself. years later he is released from his psychiatric hospital, and goes on a murderous binge to prove that everyone would have made the same choice as him, that is to live instead of die. He does this by trapping a group of college kids inside of a mountain getaway 50 miles from no where. All the students have around six hours to kill each other, only 1 will survive, if more than one survives then they all will die.

The movie does have some intense moments, but really the whole movie tries to be like saw, but never truly pulls it off, and everything that happens you pretty much know is going to happen, from beginning to end, nothing was ever really a moment of hanging suspense, or any diabolical mechanisms to kill each other through any kind of non-normal means other than knives and guns. All in all a pretty uneventfull movie and easily forgettable.
