Editorial Reviews

College freshman Jenny Traylor joins her dorm's Welcome Week scavenger hunt. But as she and her friends decipher the cryptic text message clues on their cell phones, it becomes terrifyingly clear that the stakes in this game are life and death. Hip, romantic, and darkly clever, RED HOOK is a chilling thrill ride through the landmarks and local haunts of New York City.

Customer Reviews

There he is sucked through a gate into a hellish landscape.
Michael J. Tresca
The writers attempt to misdirect the audience halfway through the movie to lead up to a twist ending, but they try a little too hard, making the conclusion obvious.
Compay
After a quick prelude where young Jenny watches her older sister get butchered by a serial killer dressed as a cop, who is then shot down by real police officers.

By no means is this on my list of favorite horror movies, but it wasn't bad. It is fairly predictable but I didn't feel like it was a waste of time. The film quality is okay, the acting has some hits and misses, and there are a couple of good kills. The DVD cover is more menacing than the actual movie, but if you keep your expectations low, you might like this one.

There's really no other way to sum it up, Red Hook is easily one of the least interesting horror movies I've seen in years. It's a scavenger hunt gone wrong, with a predictable ending. The writers attempt to misdirect the audience halfway through the movie to lead up to a twist ending, but they try a little too hard, making the conclusion obvious.

The film's production quality is poor, and the directing is below average. The cast does a decent job, as most were relatively experienced television actors. I have no idea why the word "unrated" was thrown on the cover, as the kill scenes will only make the average horror fan yawn. The only reason I gave the film two stars instead of one was because I enjoyed the movie's score.

I thought it was painfully boring, and not paying for to watch online.

I write this review with the understanding that anyone who worked on the movie will probably rate my review as "unhelpful", but I'm just being honest. I thought it was painfully boring, and I'd suggest that you at least rent it before buying the DVD.

Format: DVD
Red Hook is, at best, a watchable Scream, I know What You Did Last Summer, Urban Legend, type slasher movie, with a few flaws. I was surprised Red Hook was only 120 mins. in length, because I felt like it was 2 hours at the most. I was already thinking that they should've edited out the prolonged character/victim intros and just cut to the start of the scavenger hunt. It just dragged out even more when you already knew who the killer was (Yeah, I figured it out before the killing started, just like the rest of you). But the acting is good, the kill scenes are effective, though lacking any real "guts" for any respectable gore hound and has nice little pop soundtrack. Not really a bad effort, but just watchable, nothing memorable. The makers of Red Hook should really use this film as something to look back on, note the flaws, and if they're filming any more slasher films, improve on it if they desire to be successful in this already overstretched genre.

I thought this movie had a decent plot, and kept you interested in what was going to happen next. In the past few months I have seen the worst of Hollywood, and indies have to offer and I say this movie tried and succeeded in being interesting, keeping my attention, and did not have me yelling at my television demanding my money back!=o)

You might think that a horror movie named Red Hook might have something to do with H.P. Lovecraft's short story "The Horror at Red Hook." Detective Malone, suspicious of Robert Suydam, raids Suydam's flat after he and his new bride are found dead. There he is sucked through a gate into a hellish landscape. Sounds like an interesting premise for a movie, right?

Director Elizabeth Lucas isn't interested in any of that. In fact, the only thing Lucas is interested in is creating a movie with a ho-hum slasher flick with a very short shelf life. How else can you explain a plot which involves idiot college student stereotypes competing in a New York City treasure hunt over...wait for it...White Stripes tickets!

Remember when the White Stripes were all the rage? Yeah, that's so 2009. Lucas, who also wrote the story, would have been better off fabricating another band. Instead, it just dates the film, which has no other goal than dreamy montages of Midwestern college girl Jenny Traylor (Christina Brucato) just trying to get by in the big city. After a promising start where Jenny witnesses her sister's death at the hands of a serial killer cop, the movie then takes the entire first half of its running time (that's 45 minutes, I counted every one of them) before the killing begins again.

In those very long 45 minutes, Jenny makes goo-goo eyes at Gavin (Tate Ellington) who also lost a sibling, moves in with her theater stereotype roommate AnGELa (Hollis Scarborough) - and yes, that's how she spells it - and tries desperately to ignore walking plot device Tim (Bryan Fenkart) who keeps trying to organize a scavenger hunt.

Ellington and Brucato are the only two actors of any merit here.
