But there is one rule Sam must observe - he may watch, but he should never interfere. But of course he does break the rule when Elizabeth Brown (Sarah Habel) asks him to jump back to 10 years ago. And Elizabeth is the sister of Rebecca Brown (Mia Serafino), Sam's dead girlfriend.
The third installment of the "Butterfly Effect" franchise may not be as impressive as the first one, but still "The Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations" is surprisingly well-plotted and entertaining. Though the details of the storyline is different from the original, the concept of the protagonist traveling back in time (who makes things more complicated while trying to "fix" the past) remains the same. The storyline is full of plot holes, but it surely keeps us guessing what will happen next.
Some parts of the film are pretty gory, and I don't think gores are necessary to tell this story. Also, it takes some time for you to get past the shaky opening chapters, and I think some viewers will foresee the film's ending. Still the third entry is surprisingly good - I mean, surprisingly - and worth watching though the first one remains the best.
There's a Butterfly Effect 3? I wasn't even aware there had been a Butterfly Effect 2. (Turns out, after I did five seconds of research, it was a straight-to-video 2006 release.) In any case, a number of After Dark Horrorfest viewers (those who actually went to the theater to see the usually-awful movies After Dark distributes) said Revelations was their favorite of the ADHF flicks from '09, so I decided I'd watch that one before those no one talked about. (I do admit I watched the two everyone hated first...) And while it's not as good as the original, which was no great shakes but watchable, it's surprisingly not half bad. And the lack of Ashton Kutcher on the screen helps immensely.
Plot: if you've seen one Butterfly Effect movie, you know what's going to happen. Guy is capable of jumping around in time. Guy messes around with his own timeline and causes unexpected changes in his present, which change the parameters of the original mystery guy is trying to solve. In this case, guy is Sam Reade (The O.C.'s Chris Carmack), who is helped in his jaunting by his shut-in sister Jenna (Bully's Rachel Miner), who's been terrified of the outdoors since almost dying in the fire that killed their parents. In any case, Sam is contacted by Elizabeth Brown (American Virgin's Sarah Habel), the sister of Sam's dead ex-girlfriend Rebecca (Mia Serafino in her first screen role). The guy who went down for her murder is scheduled to be executed on Friday, and Elizabeth just knows he didn't do it. She asks Sam to look into it, but that kind of thing is never a good idea. After his jaunt, both Rebecca and Elizabeth are dead, and his meddling has turned a guy who seemingly killed one person at random into a serial killer.Read more ›
Let's just say that if you liked the storyline of the first one, give it a chance. I actually liked the 3rd one more than the 2nd. It's kind of like Butterfly Effect meets Saw. There's much more gore in this one than both BE previous.
It's at least worth a rent....at least!
Sam's girlfriend, Rebecca, was murdered a few years before and her sister, Elizabeth, believes that the killer is still out there, which means Rebecca's murderer, that is behind bars and is going to be executed within days, is innocent.
Sam goes back in time to the night of Rebecca's murder, just to see who the killer is, but then he tries to stop her death, only resulting in her being murdered in a different manor. When he returns back to the present, things have changed and he is now a murder suspect in not just Rebecca's death, but in a string of murders. Each time he goes back to find the murderer he changes his current timeline, and one by one his most trusted allies are being murdered.
I have never seen the previous films in the series and after a quick google search, I was surprised to learn that each movie has a different main character and plot. I only watched The Butterfly Effect 3 because it came in a two disc set with seven other After Dark Horrorfest III films. The movie started out a little confusing for me with all the flashbacks, but once I figured out what was going on I was glued to screen. There is a lot of blood/gore throughout the movie, not to mention the graphic sex scene, but deep down there is an intriguing plot that keeps you guessing who the killer really is.Read more ›
