This was one of the worst movies I've seen in recent memory.
D. K.
This was a movie that was bad and after it was over I say "I just wasted an hour and a half (or however long it was) of my life on this crap!"
Donald A. Prentiss
True, his character is ridiculous, but then again, everything is over the top about this movie, so what the hay?

"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.

This was one of the worst movies I've seen in recent memory. I'll start off by saying that all the sped up and slo-mo effects were unnecessary and honestly annoying. The kill scenes were cheaply done CGI which looked terrible for the most part. It's a spoiler, but in the last attack scene of the movie the 'dream girl' literally bursts through a tree and a burned body to attack Simon/Stanley. My biggest problem with this movie is that I know Cripin Glover can do so much better. I'm sure he did the best with the script he was given, which wasn't much, but I'd have passed on this role. After seeing him in Rivers Edge and Willard it was almost painful to watch him play this character. I'm just glad I got this used for six bucks and not the twenty-five amazon is asking for it

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!

A group of kids in a van head out to the woods to pan for gold(and get laid of course) and run into a backwoods lunatic, and tra-la....tra-la.....tra-la. Zero, repeat, zero here will surprise the viewer. Everything is strictly by the numbers here. One minute after meeting our cast of victims you want them all to die horrible deaths, even the "nice" girl.
So why in God's name did I give this crud four stars??? The magic two words: Crispin Glover. The forever nutty Glover, who comes across as a headcase when he's playing it straight, really gets to let go here. Granted, his psycho isn't one of the more charismatic slasher psychos of all time and probably won't go down as such in horror film history, but it really is fun to watch him, especially when he does things like offer a woman a "hand sandwich" and brutally squashes a small dog with one mighty stomp right in front of it's owners. One of the very few bits of originality on display here is a mechanical catapult that launches pickaxes....like tons of pickaxes. There's also a homemade saw apparatus that, when triggered by a tripwire(Glover likes his boobytraps), flies out of the bushes and takes the legs off of an unlucky paintballer.
So, I can certainly see why folks may not like this film as it is derivative of just about every backwoods slasher flick out there. But Glover is one thing that makes it fun and keeps it from being a two star deal.

The premise of the movie is nothing new but the acting was horrible. The worst part being Simon's accent. I got so annoyed everytime he would open his mouth and say "You didn't say Simon says"....The rest of the characters were rather flat...the cheating boyfriend, the best friend cheating with the boyfriend, the stoner and ect. Also, all the flying axes get a little old after the first few times. What I wanted to know was how he could set them all up so quickly...?? The final showdown was odd and cheesey. All things considered it was a very lame and boring movie.
