Editorial Reviews

An ancient curse returns with a vengeance in this harrowing descent into shear terror! While searching for her missing father, pretty young Allie and her friends are dragged kicking and screaming into a living nightmare courtesy of the Seamstress, a local legend spoken of in whispers who still terrorizes the community after her brutal death at the hands of bloodthirsty locals years before. Now armed with her very sharp sewing needles and a diabolical imagination, she won't stop until the last drop of blood is sewn. Lance Henrikson (Pumpkinhead, TV's Millenium) stars in this tailor-made exercise in terror that will rip you to shreds!

1.0 out of 5 stars SEW, SEW BAD November 3, 2009
Format:DVD
The seamstress won't keep you on pins and needles, nor will it keep you in stitches. It just falls apart like a badly hemmed wedding dress. The script is as tangled as a spool of thread and the directors talent could not fill a thimble. The movie ends with a blatant murder by the heroine(Enough, Sleeping With the Enemy)-yeah, I've even seen that before. Don't buy, don't rent, don't even look at the dvd cover.

1.0 out of 5 stars JUST PLAIN SILLY! March 6, 2010
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I regret having purchased this movie but maybe by writing this review, I can prevent anyone else from making the same mistake. I watch a lot of movies and horror movies are among my favorites. Thus, I was hoping that this one would be a good one that I had never seen before. Instead, it was just plain silly. It was not scary and the storyline made no sense. Mind you most horror movies are not viewed primarily for their plots but some reasoning or story line is expected. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS ONE.

This movie is about a group of kids who go to a forested island in search of the missing father of one of the girls in the group. Soon supernatural horrors creep out of the woods and pick them off one by one. The whole thing is connected to an old mass murder case where a woman and her husband was lynched because the town believed they where responsible for the gruesome death of some children. If you have seen any vengeful ghost movies you have already seen this movie. The story is uneven and hard to follow at times. The characters are unmemorable. There are a few good ghost effects, and the ending is sort of okey. But seriously there are many far better vengeful ghost movies out there. However if you are a huge fan of the typical kids out camping in remote areas and are then picked off one by one by a supernatural menace type movies like myself then the movie is okey to give a watch. But it is by no means good.

3.0 out of 5 stars A pretty good horror film October 16, 2009
Format:DVD
First, there's nothing especially new here. The film has several of the hackneyed horror elements: a group of young people, an isolated setting, a killer from the past, and an evil from the past recurring in the present. In this sense, it is rather like a combination of I Know What You Did Last Summer and Ghost Story. Oh yeah, and there's a fair amount of the characters having sex before the killing begins. So the movie's not all that original.

Then again, there isn't much that is original in American horror these days. So, taking the derivativeness as a given, I find this movie fairly good. Allie (Kailin See, Snowglobe) goes in search of her father, who has disappeared, perhaps in connection with an old series of crimes. As it happens, an innocent person was tortured by a mob for those crimes, and her ghost is out for revenge. That's pretty much the plot. The rest is more or less by the numbers, albeit with a fairly good cast, nice effects, and a small twist at the end to keep the film from being a one-dimensional cliché. There are certainly better films out there, but there are also worse films.

2.0 out of 5 stars Seamstress March 27, 2010
Format:DVD
Allie's father has disappeared on an island, and she wonders if his connection to an old crime is responsible. A woman was brutally killed by an angry crowd, and her murderous ghost haunts those responsible for her death. While Allie and her friends search for her father, people start dying in increasingly horrifying ways. The story was confusing and choppy. It relied on film editing too much to tell the story. It could of been a great horror movie but it was just too cliche. It's a cheezy formulaic studio horror movie, not even worth a rental.

2.0 out of 5 stars ALL SEVEN OR THE ONE April 5, 2012
Format:DVD
The film opens with Allie (Kailin See) trying to piece together clues of her father's murder. She comes across all kinds of weird supernatural stuff and symbols. The movie then shifts gears from a scary supernatural story to an up beat slasher film as a bunch of young adults go to an island. It is here on the island that the plot is explained about the cursed seamstress who sews shut the eyes and mouth of her victims. If you watch a lot of horror films, you will most likely be bored with this one as it brings nothing new to the table. The acting lacked. The plot wasn't bad, but the drama and filler material, as well as the dialouge was weak. This is evident during an early scene where Allie confronts the sheriff (Lance Henriksen) over the murder of her father. Might be tolerable as a low budget rental.

F-bombs, sex, brief rear nudity.
