The film starts out seriously as stage star Kylie Swanson (Minnie Driver) gets her throat cut by a man in the Phantom opera mask. She has twins, a boy and girl who we follow ten years later as they are working in the kitchen at a theater school/camp for kids run by Roger (Meat Loaf). The school ends up putting on the same play where Kylie was killed. Her daughter Camilla (Allie MacDonald) tries out for the role that her mother had. As a slasher film, people die as we attempt to guess who is the killer...or not.
The film is also a musical. Kids sing many of their lines with humorous lyrics. The song "We're Here" at the beginning had me laughing out loud. A girl with a lisp (Adrianna Di Liello) sings about her lisp...I normally don't laugh at people with a lisp (except when cable news hires them to be in front of a camera), but I was forced to make an exception. The killer sings metal songs rather well (singing dubbed by Rick Miller) and even sings some of the drum parts "rum dum dum" which again had me laughing.
This is a film which gives the killer a personality, a staple of series slasher films. Kudos to Jerome Sable, writer, song writer, and director for an enjoyable comedy/musical "B" horror film.
Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.
The mixing of genres was pretty awesome its like Camp meets Sleepaway Camp with better effects.the ensemble cast was perfect as was the storyline and pace of the action,comedy and suspense.I say if your a slasher fan and don't mind musicals or love both this knocks it out of the park!!
I'm not going to give away anymore of the plot because that wouldn't be fair. I did not dislike this movie; I just thought it could have been so much more. I will say that I would not be surprised if this were rewritten and taken to off-Broadway and finally Broadway. Given a little tweak here and there, this might just make it.
I let you guys decide on this one! Rated R for some bloody violence, language, and partial nudity.
I am not a personal fan of musicals, however I respect the talent of the cast in this film, and the lyrics in each song kept me laughing at a constant pace. FearNet describes this film as “a cross between ‘Glee’ and ‘Sleepaway Camp…”, and that is a perfectly accurate description. It has a nice blend of comedy and horror both, which makes for an entertaining film experience.
STAGE FRIGHT is shot well and looks great onscreen. The production value appears to be pretty high, and the crew does a great job of utilizing the money they have. My sole complaint about the film in terms of production is that the gore looks a bit fake. There’s some nice shots of it, but the color seems off (it’s more brown than red) which threw me. I’m not sure if this is intentional or not, but I feel it’s worth mentioning.
The cast is excellent, with the beautiful and talented Allie MacDonald headlining the show. There are many other actors worth mentioning as well, including screen veteran Minnie Driver (who only has a cameo, but she’s always awesome), Meat Loaf Aday, Douglas Smith, Ephraim Ellis, and Thomas Alderson.Read more ›
