With low expectations you might not be disappointed too severely
on March 10, 2015
It starts out okay. A strange man is being chased by an even stranger man. He ends up in a decommissioned church that has since been turned into a hotel populated by prostitutes, ex-cons, and your typical garden variety losers. Naturally, he can't stay hidden forever, at which point the film takes on a Night Of The Living Dead parallel. All up until this point, the film is good. It sets mood and atmosphere very well, the characters work well enough, and overall it feels fresh. Unfortunately, this doesn't last forever.
Some of the acting is very good, and some of it is a bit overdone. At times the story balances a little humor to lighten the mood well, and at times the jokes fall completely flat. And, without ruining anything, there is a plot revelation regarding how the whole situation came about that was absurd. They would have done better to just let everyone go on wondering why in the world this guy was being chased.
Overall, it isn't bad. If you've enjoyed Tales From The Crypt in the past, I can certainly assure you that this film is better than the awful Bordello of Blood movie, but that isn't exactly a monumental achievement.
