1.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing Premise, but Poorly Executed September 14, 2012
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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars TERRIFYING, AND VERY, VERY DISTURBING May 10, 2009
Perkins 14 is a taut, fast-paced chiller that delivers the goods compared to most of the bargain basement junk that passes for horror these days.

Victims are slashed, impaled, mutilated and bludgeoned to death but it's not a slasher movie.

Victims are torn apart and eaten but it's not a zombie movie.

What it is about is Perkins a physcopath who has kidnapped 14 children and kept them for 10 years locked in cages in his basement where he has abused, starved, and drugged them out of their skulls, and he has videotaped each one showing the stalking, kidnapping and abuse of each child.

Kyle, one of the last kidnapped is the son of the local sherrif named Dwayne Hopper who is wracked with guilt over the fact that he gave up too quickly trying to locate his missing son. Hopper also has an adulterous wife and a goth-light daughter who has the type of boyfriend you wouldn't invite over for Sunday dinner with Mom & Dad. The cages are accidently unlocked, Sheriff Hopper kills Perkins and then the carnage begins to escalate in a series of brutal and gruesome killings.

The father-son reunion towards the end is both heart-breaking and
horrifying. The movie is left open-ended for a sequel and I hope they never do make one. A sequel is unneccesary and would just be a rehash and pointless to try to "improve" the original.

The movie is really a 4.5 rated movie bacause of a few lapses in logic but I opted to rate upwards rather than backwards because the movie took me by surprise and has more thrills and chills than some movies that try to pass themselves off as horror.

1.0 out of 5 stars cops who don't shoot ... interesting concept April 3, 2013
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.
