Editorial Reviews

Review

Haunting and Relentless…One of the very few memorable horror flicks of the year... --Films In Review

A nightmare captured on film...Plague Town goes where most mainstream horror films fear to tread. --Fangoria

Just when you think you ve seen all it has to offer, director David Gregory cranks up the terror even higher and brings the noise. A very scary experience. --Film Threat

Product Description

Rosemary is not like other children...

Fangoria calls it A boundary-pushing, taboo-breaking experience. AV Maniacs says it embodies the spirit and atmosphere of the great horror films of the 70s. And fright fans around the world have named it a new benchmark in independent horror:

In a remote village, a shocking secret lives on with each and every baby born. It is said that all children are creatures of God...except here. Now for a group of lost tourists, every conception of family will soon be sliced to pieces. And for a doomed few, the ultimate terror is about to hit home.

From the Executive Producer of Henry: Portrait of A Serial Killer and The Manson Family

4.0 out of 5 stars Creepy and Unique July 10, 2009
Format:DVD
First I have to say that I wasn't bored while watching "Plague Town" it held my interest and had some very creepy,scary moments in it.
It was reminiscent of "Wicked Little Things "from the first batch of 8 films to die for.
"Plague Town" was somewhat original but it's not like kids haven't been used many times in the past to frighten or shock audiences, a few good examples being "The Bad Seed","The Good Son" and "Who Can Kill a Child",It's the brutality and shock value of using something that personifies innocence,hope and goodness that gives shock value to a film like this and others that portray children as "monsters".
The film used very dim lighting in places and that didn't really bother me because it lent to the dark feel of the film.There were quite a few grisly scenes but they let you see just enough to let you know what happened and just enough to let you're imagination run wild as well.
The character of Rosemary was particularly creepy and well played.Her bug eyed look very disturbing.
all in all I would recommend it to a horror slasher fan.
It's interesting and somewhat unique but I still like "The Children" better as far as killer kid flicks go.

3.0 out of 5 stars A fresh retelling of the maniacs in the woods story November 8, 2009
Format:DVD
I enjoyed this movie. In short, a family is on a holiday-like event in (presumably) Britain, then get stranded only to find themselves hunted by a rather large extended family of mutated humans. The movie does a good job of maintaining an eerie mood throughout, with good suspense and well crafted horror scenes. The advertised story speaks of substantial gore, but I didn't find it that way. I am not a particular fan of gore, and found the amount shown generally agreeable and not gore for gore's sake. The acting was pretty good, and the production values high. The film was, however, shot (at least the day scenes) with a blue filter, which takes a particular skill level to employ effectively. Overall, a worthy rental.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cut, paste, produce, release. November 3, 2010
Format:DVD
Plague Town (David Gregory, 2008)

I sometimes wonder what the guys who write movies like this are thinking, and why they decide to do it. You take a dash from movie A, a dash from movie B, and paste them onto the structure of movie C. You make no changes, you don't deviate from the formula, and it should be no surprise that you end up with derivative crap. And yet movie after movie just like this gets pumped out year after year, and with the advent of direct-to-video about twenty years ago, the number of movies put together just like this exploded. I've seen hundreds of them, but you have to dig through a lot of swine to find the real pearls. Plague Town is swine through and through.

Plot: ever-so-typical dysfunctional family heads to Ireland to try and reconnect with its roots, and maybe heal their wounds in the process. Our intrepid group consists of dad, Jerry (Follow the Broccoli's David Lombard); stepmom, Annette (Enjoy Yourself's Lindsay Goranson); and two sisters, older Jessica (18-Year-Old Virgin's Erica Rhodes), who's picked up a local boyfriend, Robin (In Flanders Fields' James Warke) along the way, and younger Molly (Brutal Massacre: A Comedy's Josslyn DeCrosta). They wander the countryside after being dropped off by a bus, looking for... something. They end up in the wrong, wrong place, however--a village full of evil, deformed children who love nothing more than trapping and torturing unwary travelers. Though they have something very, very different in mind for the sisters...

Yes, you've seen it all before. Take the bones of Village of the Damned and drape them with trappings from Eternal and every Lifetime Original Movie drama about dysfunctional families ever made and you've got the idea here. Needless to say, familiarity not only breeds contempt, but predictability as well. Why bother renting this one? The synopsis will give you all you need to know to rent better-made movies with the same basic ideas. * ˝

2.0 out of 5 stars Rent first... October 26, 2009
Format:DVD
Im glad I did! It Wasn't really a horrible way to kill time, but the acting was just atrocious and that was kinda hard to sit through. There were a few creepy parts involving the "eye" girl, but there really was not a whole lot of explanation for what the hell was going on. I love a good independant horror flick as much as the next guy, but this was pretty bad. Rent first before you decide to make your purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should be listed as a comedy August 8, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Plague Town looked like it had a good premise but really failed to deliver. The story follows a family that is visiting Ireland and misses their tour bus by seconds (don't bus drivers use their side mirrors). This leads to the family fighting for the next half of the movie with forced acting by all. The two sisters fight the most going so far as to dropping the C word bomb! Basically we laughed through the whole thing, especially while watching how effective a plastic hubcap can actually be used as a murder weapon (who knew????) I would say if you really wanted to see this movie rent it first, I'm sure you will thank me for saving you $15 bucks

5.0 out of 5 stars Fangoria hits the mark... May 30, 2009
Format:DVD
I just saw this film and must say that Fangoria hit the mark by describing
it as one of the best independent horror films to come along in quite some time. For those individuals who criticize the movie for for sub-par dialogue and acting, then I would ask them to show me any horror movie
where the actors are up for academy awards--it's the nature of the genre that defines the style of the acting. For those who criticize it on the basis of being stupid, I would like for them to point out a horror movie that is "intelligent." The horror genre is designed to scare, make one feel uncomfortable or uneasy, present elements of the grotesque, attempt to present something a bit different, have some unexpected twists and turns--Plague Town does all of this on some level. Moving forward in the horror genre, there will probably never be anything new invented under the sun, what has been tried will probably be re-tried in a director's own way. If one is looking for something completely new, unique, and never done before in the horror genre, then one will be consistenetly and forever disappointed. If the horror masters--Stephen King, Clive Barker,
John Carpenter, George Romero, Stuart Gordon, etc. can't come up with something novel in the horror genre, then it probably can't be done. It may be that critics of the movie Plague Town and films like it have lost the sense of what horror is supposed to be all about. The criticisms of horror always seem to be the same--it doesn't have this, it doesn't have that, and it doesn't have the other thing--what the heck are you looking for anyway? Will anything please you at all? Anyway, Plague Town is a very good independent horror movie and well worth watching.
