Editorial Reviews

In a secluded beach house on the Malibu shore, an engaged couple’s argument sends Matt (Bob Guiney) into the arms of his fiance Raina’s maid-of-honor Nichola (Trishelle Cannatella). After Raina (Trish Schneider) finds them together, horrible violence ensues which ends with Raina facedown with her throat slit in the hot tub. 17 Months Later: Oliver (Steven Hill), his ex- girlfriend Kirsten (Jenna Lewis), Seth (Reichen Lehmkuhl), and DQ (Jonny Fairplay) decide to rent the now abandoned beach house for the summer, unaware of the horrific secret that kept the house vacant all this time. One by one, temptation begins to seduce the housemates into betraying their romantic relationships and unleashes an avenging angel of death. When the first victim is killed, Murry Ellis (Ethan Zohn), a whacked out spiritualist, believes that it was in fact, the ghost of Raina. With the help of Murry, Oliver and Kirsten fight to survive and search desperately to unlock the shocking mystery of...THE SCORNED.

1.0 out of 5 stars ONLY REASON I BOUGHT IT March 16, 2007
Format:DVD
The only reason I bought it was cause my friend Reichen was in it.. And man was it horrible.. I am really hoping that my boy doesn't put this on his resume.. You will laugh on how bad the acting is and how Jenna M bites it... I love the crazy guy though.. the only one that actually acted in the movie... lots of T&A though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love 'em or hate 'em! April 8, 2006
Format:DVD
If you want a fun dive into the horror genre, check it out. For those that love reality TV, this is the movie for you! I am a huge reality TV fan and it was great seeing some of my old 'stars' get whacked in new and creative ways. For those that DON'T like reality TV, this is ALSO the movie for you! Figure, for every reality star that dies, it's one less show for you to have to worry about! Then you can see your least favorite people on TV get whacked! Either way, it's a win/win situation!

I won't give away the plot but I will say that it is a movie about cheaters getting the fates they deserve. With Ethan Zohn as the standout performance in the movie, all the stars do their best to make the movie that much more entertaining. Directed by Robert Kubilos, the director of over 24 previous films, his ability to manage the egos of the different stars makes the movie a fun romp through the supernatural. Just as important, the movie was co-written by Rob Cesternino (Survivor: Amazon, Survivor: All-Stars), Eric Mittleman (Producer - Comic Book: The Movie and Creature Unknown), and Scott Zakarin (co-producer of Bruce Campbell's 'Man with the Screaming Brain' and producer of Sid Caesar's 'Buried Treasures' DVD's). The three writers put together a story that has an unexpected twist that I had never seen in a horror film before. More importantly, a similar twist was recently used in a big budget production starring Reese Witherspoon!

As a fan of film, this independent film, put together by these creative minds, makes for a new and different movie. Are you going to experience special effects the likes of which are seen in $100 million dollar big budget effects films will make? No.

2.0 out of 5 stars give the reality stars a camera? May 28, 2008
Format:DVD
Throw some money at reality TV stars and see what you get. The result? A low budget attempt at horror. This is something you might find on Cinemax at 1am. The plot is weak, the acting is horrible, and the shooting isn't incredibly strong.

You must be a strong believer in reality TV to enjoy this movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hated it, and that's really saying something... August 30, 2007
Format:DVD
I should qualify this review by saying that I'm related to one of the actors in "The Scorned." That said, my personal attachment to my relative (who shall remain nameless for the purpose of this review) didn't add to my enjoyment of this movie in the slightest.

Frankly, I'm still looking for a good reason why this movie was made. It was tied to a reality show that aired solely on E! (not exactly the best place to gain visibility). It was then aired on E! (sanitized) and released directly to DVD with very little promotion. After watching it, it's easy to see why the producers tried to forget about it. There are a few average performances (any truly good performances would have been prohibited by a brain-dead script), but for the most part, the "actors" noticably fake their way through their lines. Steven Hill and Jenna Lewis appear to at least try to make the most of their lead roles of Oliver and Kirsten, and Trish Schneider, while playing comatose for part of the time, seems to enjoy the villany of her murderous ghost (though so much of the plot involving her seems odd and even silly). But others in the film (particularly Johnny Fairplay and Ethan Zohn) are ludicrous in their attempts to feign acting ability.

All things considered, "The Scorned" suffers from substandard acting and directing, has average production values (at best) and one of the worst scripts ever to make it to the screen. Again, that makes it hard to comprehend why it ever saw the light of day. If zero stars were a possibility, I'd seriously consider that, but I'd certainly never consider buying it.

4.0 out of 5 stars I really loved this movie August 11, 2007
Format:DVD
I really loved this movie. I like to watch a few reality shows, and I was pleasently surprised at how well they acted! But, some on the other hand, I was embarassed for them bc they were just aweful. I wish they had the dvd series of Kill Reality. Those episodes leading up to the movie make it easier to understand. (plus, it was entertaining!) Let me know if the series box set will ever come out. I'd totally get it!

2.0 out of 5 stars TOO BAD THEY DIDN'T REALLY DIE... June 7, 2006
Format:DVD
The only way this film MIGHT be enjoyable is if these no talent, over-exposed reality "stars" really were killed. Seriously...who came up with this idea and can we possibly have them deported? Is someone really into reality TV that much that they care to see these people as (bad) actors? I guess a few are...

Anyway, a murder in a beach house leaves a woman named Raina dead with her throat cut. She becomes a vengeful spirit who is out to kill unfaithful lovers. Months later she finds a treasure trove as a whole group of people move in who are unfaithful to each other. This list of stars includes Jenna Lewis, Jenna Morasca, Ethan Zohn, and Johnny Fairplay from "Survivor", Bob Guiney from "The Bachelor", Trishelle Cannatella, Tonya Cooley, and Steven Hill from "The Real World", Stacie Jones Upchurch from the Apprentice, Erika Landin from "Big Brother", and so on and so forth...There's also a boatload of cameos by other reality stars like Nikki McKibbin, Gervase Peterson, yadda yadda....

It seems the main goal of the film was to stuff as many of these never-was-beens into a movie and if that was the goal then it was a success. The film comes off as a fan-boy project. It was written by another Survivor alum Rob Cesterino and Rob might want to look for another deserted island to move to because I don't think he'll have many people knocking on his door.

Guiney who plays the beach houses landlord and Zohn actually don't come off to bad. I suppose you could see them scratching out a living acting. As for the rest, well they pretty much were very bad and I hope none of them took the film too seriously.

Great fun watching the reality stars I've grown to love/hate in a movie. The script is clever and kept me guessing. The DVD extras alone made this a great find.

I love reality television and I was psyched to see a movie with all these crazy lunatics from reality tv. It's so much fun to see them all die. Good campy fun!

I wouldn't mind being one of those 'reality has been stars' as you so eloquently put it but nope, I just get to be Joe Average, the man on the street. Easy for you to say that the movie was horrible, of course, I guess you'd better get back to watching your Beavis and Butthead marathon before... Read More
