Editorial Reviews

Five college friends choose to spend their vacation debauching at the riverside. They find the perfect place to camp out, but end up crossing paths with twin brothers Simon and Stanley, who then begin to knock off the campers in some extremely creative (and extremely gruesome) ways. Enjoy the splatter.

"Simon Says"Gives you a big dose of over the top acting by Crispin Glover .although effective for the role's he's playing,Psychotic twins that killed they're parents as children and now live in the woods where they have set booby trap after booby trap that effectively kill quite a few people who just want to camp and have a good time in grisly ways .
The cast is good and the acting is well done.Of course there is that element of dark humor that ensues with alot of the slashers today,That's one reason Glovers performance works,it's not to be taken too seriously but seriously enough to delight the slasher fan.,Blake Lively of gossip Girl is only in the film for about 3 minutes so I don't know why she was even used.

There is gore galore and that's always good because that's why we watch these movies , that combined with good characters and cool story..
There's a scene where a boy is burned alive that is particularly disturbing.The rest of the kills are pretty good as well but usual slasher fare.The weapon of choice a pick axe.
Bottom line is if you're a slasher fan and especially a slasher in the woods slasher fan or a Crispin Glover fan you won't be disappointed by this movie.
3 and 1/2 stars

I am still new to the horror movie genre, and maybe I'm a noob at this. But, seriously the movie is nowhere near good. Crispin Glover does what he does best, I can recognize his psychotic face from a mile away and still run like hell. But, the story line and the graphics quality was disappointing. The first few minutes watching the movie I thought "This is not going to go well" but then I realize the name Blake Lively on the cover and was relieved. "Thank goodness" I said, but then I sat through the whole movie only to see Blake enter 5 minutes in the end saying a few lines, looking hot as usual, and capiche. End of movie.

Simon Says is a slasher movie along the lines of Wrong Turn and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, only it has a slap happy Crispin Glover standing in for the cannibals. There's also a lot of dark comedy bits in this one. And one scene reminded me of a scene from Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives, you know where people playing paint ball start getting killed off one by one. Oh, yeah, this movie is gory. If you're tired of PG-13 horror or horror that plays it straight, then give Simon Says a chance. You might just be entertained like I was.

Just watched this on FearNet and will definitely buy this on dvd! I love crappy, gorey, over the top films and while it breaks no ground it harkens back to the beloved films of the 1980's that throw away plot and logic for gore gags and fun. Crispin Glover is great as Simon and this movie delivers on all levels. Fans of the original Mother's Day, Texas Chainsaw 2 and others of this ilk will enjoy this. I am not saying it is as good them, but good for a chuckle and midnight rewatching. Recommended!

Crispin Glover may be one of the most annoying actors that this world has ever seen. Don't get me wrong...I am not saying that he is one of the worst actors because he's actually pretty good, but he is one of the most annoying ever. For instance, Glover was outstanding in the "The River's Edge", but he was annoying in that movie too. Same thing here in the ill-concocted "Simon Says". With that being said, "Simon Says" is just a downright AWFUL movie with or without Crispin Glover. True, his character is ridiculous, but then again, everything is over the top about this movie, so what the hay?

The sad part is that "Simon Says" actually has a decent plot. A group of friends go camping in the woods unbeknownst to them that a terrible crime was committed at some point in the past by some twins who are not mentally stable. Sound familiar? Well, for those slasher movie connoisseurs like myself, it should. Remember a really good solid slasher involving twins called "Just Before Dawn" directed by none other than Jeff Lieberman. Now, that was a really good slasher. It had atmosphere, suspense, good kill scenes and excellent plot execution, solid acting and great use of setting. "Simon Says", on the other hand, had no suspense, no atmosphere, no good kill scenes because they were too over the top, terrible plot execution, below average acting and terrible use of setting.

The problem with "Simon Says" is that it is so over the top that it's ridiculous. This movie does not even attempt to be scary, and no one could possible take it seriously, and the result is some lame attempt at dark humor, but it fails there too. This movie is terrible and is an assault on the eyes and intellect. It's simply ridiculous!!!

Format: DVD
A stereotypical slasher set in the woods, Simon Says (2006) features a group of college kids on vacation, who run into a demented killer. With a healthy dose of gore, creative kills, and inventive instruments of death, the film has elements that may appeal to fans of the genre, however the kooky killer played by Crispin Glover, who has some rather particular personality traits which may be a little too much for some to take.

On their way to a campsite in the woods, a group of five kids stop off at a gas station/general store that is run by twin brothers Simon and Stanley (both played by Glover in a dual role). Upon reaching their destination, the group begins to relax, but their fun is soon interrupted by a maniac who specializes in camouflage, and utilizes some uniquely wicked weapons that feature pickaxes. One spectacular kill involves a weapon that fires a pickaxe with chain attached, that plunges into the back of a victim, who is reeled in and then mutilated. The killer also employs traps with spinning reels with embedded pickaxes, and enjoys hanging his victims by the neck.

The killer speaks to his victims in a horrible southern accent, as his irritating shtick incorporates the kid's game Simon says. This silly routine, and the killer's whole lame persona, gets tired really fast, and only the frequent and dramatic kills, make the film of interest, as he creatively butchers some adventure loving types, looking to play wargames, before focusing on Kate (Margo Harshman) and Zack (Greg Cripes), the last of the college kids.

The concluding confrontation, while featuring much too much annoying banter, does include a barbecue, and a machete strike to the head.
