1.0 out of 5 stars Worse than a B movie! January 21, 2006
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
This movie was a waste of 1 hour and 30 minutes of my life. I can not even tell you how bad it is. It is not even about ghosts really. A couple stay at a hotel, the writer gets drunk, moves to L.A. and leaves his girlfriends, who ends up getting sick and fired from her job. Thats the story. Along with the end where some ghost goes inside the girl. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY BUYING OR RENTING THIS MOVIE. YOU WILL TRULY REGRET IT IF YOU RENT THIS.

1.0 out of 5 stars If it had a Plot, you could bury it. May 6, 2006
Format:DVD
Poor Acting, poor Direction and poor continuity, trail you through some of the worst dialogue, and inept script I've seen in years. In the "The Off Season", everything is off including the season.

My wife and I watched it and laughed through all the whole thing. One scene comes to mind. Inside the motel room you can see it's pouring rain and the male lead goes outside and there's no rain in sight, but, you can still hear the pouring rain. He goes back into the room and the rain is back. Priceless.

My True Rating is 0 Stars. Rotten Movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Knew we were in trouble when... October 21, 2007
Format:DVD
My wife and I knew we were in trouble when, still at the video store, we noticed the review on the DVD cover said "THE MOST HAUNTING FILM SINCE 'THE SHINNING'". Yeah, that's right. "THE SHINNING". My wife kicked me in the shins after we watched the film to see if it was true. Yep, it was haunting. My shins still hurt.

The only bright spot in the film was Mr. Scrimm and his believable character, and his 'Prairie Dog' song was beautiful, and it may be the most haunting thing I've seen since 'The Shinning'.

At least we got a lot of housework done while watching it in the background. "Thanks for doing the laundry".

3.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile Despite Flaws August 18, 2006
Format:DVD
This movie has a loveably amateurish quality. The actors lag along some of their lines, trying to maintain momentum through the bad pacing that's imposed on them. The action is riddled with horror movie clichés that echo The Shining or Psycho.

There's the cliché of the movie's premise itself. A young couple takes up residence in a small-town resort motel during the off-season so that the man can have the quiet he needs to work on his play. There's the cliché of the man's assurances that he's progressing with his writing, when in fact something else is going on with him. There's the cliché of the tension over what sort of assault the woman is going to face as she takes a shower.

In spite of these flaws though, I enjoyed the movie and would give it a mild recommendation. It has some genuinely spooky moments. But it's main success lies in its characters. The film is populated by some people with memorable personalities who really talk to each other. This makes it a lot more interesting than most of the slick, strictly action-packed major movie productions.

The elderly, slightly doddering motel owner won me over with her heartfelt regret at having supplied the couple with a stain-prone mattress for their unit. And the eccentric retired rodeo rider in the next unit is equally winning.

Actor Angus Scrimm (could that be his real name?), who plays the retired rodeo rider, brought his own unique contribution to the movie. He wrote the song he sings in nostalgia over his days on the circuit out West. Mr. Scrimm sings a snatch of this song in the movie itself. But we are treated to his full rendition in the DVD's Bonus Materials.

Listen to this last part of the "Making of Off Season" at your own risk. Mr.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't EVER EVER waste you money on this piece of crap! October 21, 2011
Format:DVD
Calling this movie a "piece of crap" is probably a gross understatement and if I could give it 0 stars I would. I bought this movie for $2 in a bargain bin and I overpaid and want my money back it's THAT BAD. If you are an avid horror film buff, you will HATE this movie. The ONLY thing you can possibly enjoy with this movie is if you MST3K it throughout the entire thing and entertain yourselves. Otherwise, don't bother. However, even then, you may be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a rent March 14, 2006
By Tim
Format:DVD
I really enjoy indepedent horror films that try to break away from the common cenceptions of modern ghost stories. While almost succesful in doing this "The Off Season" falls a little short. When watching low-budget films I can usually forgive bad acting, but Don Wood is terrible. His performance is so distracting that it's a welcome relief whe his character leaves the story. While this film definitely has it's moments, the pacing tends to slow the action of the story to much and looses your attention from time to time. Worth a rent but if you're thinking about buying it you might want to leave this one on the shelf.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring September 1, 2005
Format:DVD
Very slow, boring movie. It's more about the couple's relationship than anything else. Low budget is obvious and bad acting. The landlord couldn't even get her lines out right. Film appeared to be low quality.

Movie just sucked. It seems Lions Gate has many horror titles like this and they are all horrible. At least there wasn't a five minute lesbian scene in this one (see Slaughterhouse Massacre)

Rent to make fun of with friends, otherwise,avoid.
