What I got was a great Slasher movie about Four guys ,Two of them brothers and Two exotic dancers coming home from a Stag party on a NYC Subway train.It gears up after Breckin Meyer's character gets maced by Vinessa Shaw's character for being a complete jerk and they have to get off the train because of the mace.
Problem being it's the last train for hours and they end up getting stuck in the NYC subway so they have to venture into the tunnels.What they encounter are people that have lived in those tunnels for years maybe decades, some much more evolved than others. They run into four cannibalistic Neanderthal looking sub humans that roam the tunnels looking for victims to eat and oh they they also share bits and pieces with the wild dogs that they have housed in their humble abode that looks like a human butcher shop,but not at all clean or tidy.This is when the real fun begins.
Kip Pardue,Breken Myer,Scott Atkins,Carl Geary and Vinessa Shaw are all excellent in their roles,the casting was very well done.If Vinessa looks familiar it's because she played the oldest daughter in the Hills Have Eyes remake. Stag Night is heavy on the gore which is always a plus, the lighting was well done and you could actually see what was going on most of the time.
It's brutal and fast paced,not at all a hurry up and wait to get hacked up feel to it,I want to watch it again already.
There are some endearing moments as well so it isn't without any sentiment or meaning.
I usually don't care either way but viewing this I decided that I actually did like being endeared to a couple of these characters this gave it all the more impact.Read more ›
A group of four men are kicked out of a club into the rainy New York night. Apparently they were having a bachelor party there. The four guys - Mike (Kip Pardue), Carl (Scott Adkins), Joe (Karl Geary) and Mike's troublemaking brother Tony (Breckin Meyer) decide to go to another bar, so they hop on a subway where they meet two women, Brita (Vinessa Shaw) and Michelle (Sarah Barrand).
A small scuffle broke out, and while the train stops at a red signal light between the stations, one of them forces the door open. The six passengers get off the train to find themselves trapped in the subway tunnel, somewhere like abandoned platform. Lost in the underground maze, they are in big trouble, especially when someone or something is hiding in the dark, ready to close in on the unsuspecting folk.
"Stag Night" begins promisingly with a nice photography of the creepy subway tunnel, but about 30 minutes in, we realize that the film, with its potentially interesting urban legend-like story undercut by flat and unimaginative direction, has nothing new to offer. The story is predictable and the shaky camera in the action scenes doesn't help.
"Stag Night" is not a terrible film. It is just that we have already seen it somewhere else.
I have liked all the "Ghost House Underground" films for the most part but I think this one is among the best. I have watched this one more than the others thus far and each time I find it enjoyable. The best and quickest way to describe this film is that it is "Wrong Turn" in the subway. All the cannibals and kills you would hope for in this kind of flick. Also a "Stag Night " is a bachelor party.
Four friends are out for a night on the town doing the whole bachelor party thing. One of these guys will be getting married soon so his friends and brother are taking him out. They meet up with some ladies and head into the subway. Once there something seems wrong since no train is coming. So they hike down the tunnel only to witness the murder of a police officer. Sited they make a run for it and the killers are hunting them down one by one in the tunnels.
I really enjoyed this movie although it is nothing new really, we have had the cannibal and tunnel movies before [here's looking at you C.H.U.D.]. But the kills are cool and there is some suspense to be had, loved watching some friends that came to Austin watch this. Those ladies are easy to scare [love it]. This film was written and directed by Peter A. Dowling who most might know as a writer on the Jodie Foster flick "Flightplan". There were missteps and logic issues in the script [see that opening scene] but over I liked it. As for the direction I liked his style and felt it made the film seem a little more realistic.
The acting here was good and I think Breckin Meyer needed a role and film like this since he is usually casted as the nice guy. Speaking of that I will add that some people may be turned off by the lack of wanting to care for the characters they may feel. There isn't much to root for here except maybe one person. Still over all I had a good time with this flick and it is one of those movies that is better to watch with friends or something.
