Okay so this isn't the greatest film in the world. It's not even the greatest horror film, but fans of Bill Paxton have got to check out this movie. Paxton puts his all into making everyone of his characters entertaining and this film is no different. Bill really goes overboard with this character and it's a good thing because otherwise the movie would be pretty boring. I had to rewind one scene several times I was laughing so hard at Paxton's antics.
I found the movie good, nothing extraordinary nor original, it's not extremely graphic but it has enough blood spilling. The acting is good, so is the score. It has some genuine scary moments and a reasonable plot. The horror fans are likely to enjoy it, as I said initially, this has all the ingredients for a good horror movie.
NOW.....with the arrival of Bluray it should also be available in that format too.
I finally decided to give it a view, and while I did enjoy it overall, I'm not sure if I would recommend it. It's a pretty slow film, with a couple deaths occurring in the opening scenes, then a long slog through to the end when we finally get some more "action". Bill Paxton is definitely a highlight in the film, but the other performances are pretty dour. I will give it a few more points for providing a nostalgia flashback with the roller rink scenes, and the disco score, but unless you are a hardcore 80's horror junkie, you may want to pass.
A young girl named Christie begins having nightmares after her father dies. Christie believes he was murdered, but her mother and the rest of the town believe his death was accidental. Christie's boyfriend, Greg, is doing is best to believe her, but he's having his own trouble after his best friend Josh disappears from the local mortuary's warehouse. Christie's nightmares seem to come alive as she finds herself being stalked by a white faced ghoul in a black robe.
