Editorial Reviews

Review

"Brisk and enjoyable...A good balance of splatter and laughs, plus an engagingly sexy McKellar topping a first-rate cast." -- Steven West, HorrorReview.com

Product Description

Hack!

Reality filmmaking can be murder. Just ask Vincent King (Sean Kanan) and his wife Mary Shelley (Juliet Landau), two passionate horror fans determined to create the ultimate slasher movie with the unwitting help of a cast to die for. Led by deceptively bookish biology major Emily (Danica McKellar), a group of horny college students visits the Kings' remote island to study the local flora and fauna, unaware that they're about to end up on the cutting room floor as they are gruesomely dispatched in the style of both classic and contemporary shockers. Who will survive the Kings' insane homage to horror? Anyway you slice it, “Hack!” will keep you guessing and gasping right until the credits and/or heads roll.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent straight to video horror movie November 24, 2007
By MattW
Format:DVD
Wholly derivative but somewhat effective horror thriller. Students visiting a secluded island to do field research find themselves the subject of a madman's obsession with movies. Considering the budgetary constraints the film is technically well done, the score fine, and the special effects mostly above par. Gore hounds will be pleased with the buckets of blood and a few unexpected twists and mild chuckles elevate what might have otherwise been a ho-hum affair. Who will live, who will die? Does it really matter? Recommended to horror affecianados.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hack Indeed... January 30, 2008
Format:DVD
I was very surprised by this one. It begins with your standard horror/slasher setup: group of college kids--and this group contains every cliche` you can think of--leaves to go do extra credit on an island out in the middle of nowhere, things begin to happen, and you'd think "here we are again"--AND you'd be WRONG!

I don't agree that the movie will have you "guessing until the end" (lord, if you can't figure out who's offing the kids, you need to turn in your horror membership card!), but I did enjoy the ending because...well, see for yourself! I think the title for this movie is very appropriate.

The movie's running time is 100 minutes. It is rated R for some nudity and campy blood and violence. You know; you're STANDARD slasher movie! It is also crammed full of named actors appearing in cameos. I almost didn't recognize William Forsythe and Kane Hodder (former Jason Vorhees AND Victor Crowley of "Hatchet" fame) doesn't even receive a mention. Lots of fun. I recommend it.

If there has ever been a movie that paid more respect to the horror genre, I have not seen it. Tongue in cheek yet respectful, Hack is completed saturated with direct references and subtle nuances that pay homage to the great movies in horror while still developing a few interesting twists and a great combination of blood and gore.

After a foreboding intro that feels like the opening scene of the original A Nightmare on Elm Street, a group of stereotypical college kids board a boat headed for a secluded island in order to participate in a marine-biology extra credit project. The island's owners, a pair of horror film fanatics, welcome the group with open arms as long as they participate in a little obsessive filming.

Purposefully satirical, the cast fills out in a color-by-the-numbers fashion: obnoxious jock, bookworm girl with pigtails (Danica McKellar - Winnie Cooper), gaysian male, token black dude, druggie chick, creepy boat captain (Burt Young - Paulie from Rocky), a random small-town sheriff (Tony Burton - Duke from Rocky), and an incredibly hot foreign exchange student whose amazing breasts desire fresh air and freedom more than a death row inmate. Add in William Forsythe as an inhabitant of the island, Sean Kanan (The Karate Kid Part III) as the rich owner of the island, and a quick cameo from Kane Hodder - one of the men who have played Jason Voorhees - and you have a cast tailor-made for a horror movie parody.

No less than amazing, the depth to which respect is paid to the horror genre is unparalleled.

3.0 out of 5 stars Behind the Screams February 10, 2008
Format:DVD
Making a horror movie is tricky, thankless business. The older you get, the harder it is to find a truly scary film. Maybe this is just a function of age; watch a movie at the age of thirty that scared the bejeezus out of you at age thirteen, and you may find yourself wondering what the teenage you was thinking. Maybe, also, it's simply a matter of unoriginal and uncreative filmmaking. Horror movies stand almost no chance at all of winning any kind of serious awards or acclaim, so their aspirations are limited, and most of the time they try to bank on the things that have worked before, and over and over again. It's a safe bet to say that the bulk of horror writers/directors are no longer interested in actually trying to frighten their smirking audiences. Instead, the genre has devolved into two basic factions: gross-out movies (see the Saw trilogy or either of the Hostels) where all of the creative energy is focused on finding new and interesting ways to slaughter peoiple, or movies that run on pure snark.

Behind the Mask - The Rise of Leslie Vernon and HACK! are NOT scary movies, nor were they meant to be. If you have any doubts about this, they are dispelled from the first frames of both films. Both flicks were written and produced in the same spirit of cheeky playfulness, and both of them work in direct proportion to the number of horror movie references the viewer is able to catch. These are not horror films; they are homages.

BEHIND THE MASK is the smarter of the two, which also means it's the talkier one. Capitalizing on the supernatural serial killer subset of horror films, BEHIND THE MASK seeks to show the genesis of a new killer: Leslie Vernon.

Not going to spoil this movie but if you are a fan of Danica McKeller, star of The Wonder Years and also a brilliant mathematician, then this is worth every penny. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars IT'S THE SECOND DEFINITION OF HACK
This movie attempts to be a parody of slasher/snuff movies but in the end winds up being nothing more than a silly self-parody. Is it comedy? Is it horror? Is it drama? Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Not much to admire here.
Hack is a straight slasher-type movie with what the creators must've thought was an original take on the genre. Instead, it's a hack-neyed and unoriginal production. Read more
