Here we have one of the few truly interesting concepts from the Afterdark series. The setup goes that, 10 years prior to the film start, this man Perkins has kidnapped 14 children and raised them in kennels in his basement - we assume he conditioned them to essentially be his army of killers. One of the parents of the kidnapped children happens to be a police officer who comes to suspect the man in his jail cell is the kidnapper, and through a series of events, accidentally sets these 14 psycho killers loose upon the small town to wreak havoc.

As I said, the setup is very interesting. It's a shame, then, that director Craig Singer (who also helmed the abysmal DARK RIDE from the first Horror-fest) could not find an interesting story to tell with such fertile ground. It's hard to really decide where the blame should go. The film is largely shot well, and the acting is, at worst, average for a horror film. So who to blame? I would begin with the writers. The dialogue itself is not particularly bad, but it is the plotting and pacing that cause the film to suffer. The film spends exactly half of its running time getting to the point of releasing the killers - while the first half is interesting in a slowly-building tension sort of way as the cop and kidnapper engage in a "Hannibal Lector" style dialogue, it goes on entirely too long, and as such we aren't given nearly enough time to invest in the aftermath of the psychos being unleashed. A better director would have accomplished the first half of the film in about twenty minutes.

As for that second half, being rushed and probably working with a limited budget, we have to glean from radio calls that the mayhem is going on city wide, because we never really see it.

Teen years ago, fourteen disappearances occurred at a small town, including the young son of Dwayne Hooper. On the anniversary of his son's disappearance, Dwayne suspects that a jail inmate, Ronald Perkins, is responsible. Dwayne sends one of his deputies to investigate Perkin's house, but unleashes the fourteen people from a cellar, all whom are now zombie-like-killers!

This is the worst movie in the After Dark Horrorfest III. The acting is average for a horror movie, but the pacing is too slow, the makeup effects are horrible, and the dialogue is laughable. I forgot to mention about the countless plot holes! The cops in the movie are unbelievable! Hooper's daughter is a teenager, but I find it odd that she is dating a guy that is probably in his thirties and Hooper doesn't care! I know other reviewers hated the ending, but it didn't bother me one bit as I didn't like any of the characters.

I've just finished watching for the second time Perkins 14 and then read some of the reviews.
I (of course judging by the one star) could not agree more with the one star ratings and left wondering about whoever would give this five stars.
The story is already outlined many times again in other reviews so I will simply gripe about my issue with this movie.
Let's start off by me agreeing wholeheartedly with another reviewer that the main faults are hard to pinpoint the exact cause of the low rating.
It's not the acting, it's not the gore (there is definitely some in here), it's not the characters persay as they are one dimensional but in an after dark release who would expect anything more, and it's not the scenery or for me nor was the pacing a huge issue.
What really sticks in my craw is the fact that they and when I say they I mostly mean trained police officers, are attacked by psychotic, feral, cannibilistic, brain-washed drones that are A) not armed with firearms and B) not stealthy in the least, and still they managed to basically all die at the hands of the aforementioned psychos before the end.
Yes there is this one part where one of the psychos gets shot three times center mass and than pops back just like a Zombie.
But if I shot him and that's what happened and I'm a police officer with easy access to shotguns, I would just get myself one and shoot them in the HEAD fer Gods sake.
I'd like to see them get up after half their skulls has been taken clean off.
But strangely enough nobody tried or even thought of this.
Seriously the logic in this movie is mind numbing.
One lone man trained at shooting and marksmanship could've of taken all 14 of them out with a few well placed shots.
While watching this entire movie you will be going "Ah C' mon just shoot them already" over and over.
One of the worst pieces of crap I have ever watched.

I don't recommend this film at all. But if you must see it, it's in an 8 film pack called "8 Films to Die For: After Dark Horrorfest III". If you buy that pack you get 8 films instead of one.

The good: the cinematography. I liked the way it flowed and looked professional.

The bad: everything else. The directing was appalling. It's all long shots and close-ups. I can't remember and medium shots. There are constant flashbacks. It's usually those jittery flashbacks you see in horror where the camera is flicking and jumping from shot to shot. Plus, there is idiotic camera shaking to try to make the scene appear more tense. I can't think of any viewer who has liked to watch camera shaking. Why do directors put this crap in?

The acting was bad, wooden, and forced. Yes, the lines were cliched. The script was terrible. The characterizations were one-dimensional and cliched. So were the situations: "Hey, there's a guy with a bloody axe walking toward us. Let me walk up to him and ask him what he's doing." Yes, it features the obligatory unsuspecting teenagers who are having sex and smoking marijuana getting attacked/murdered in cliched horror. It also features police officers who enter a scene without drawing their guns. Yes, when the main cop character sees his partner bloodied and hanging from a ceiling, the cop does not decide to draw his gun. Amazing. Whenenver the cops do draw their gun they hold it like you'd hold a TV remote. All--and I mean all--the police officers in the town of Stone Cove are incompetent. From the license plates, Stone Cove is in Maine. Thus, we can only assume that the U.S. state of Maine has the dumbest cops in the United States. Plus, they are entirely useless.
