Editorial Reviews

Six friends enter the strange town of Old Mines for a weekend float trip.They quickly realize that the town is not friendly to strangers, and they are pressured to leave by the police. When the friends decide to continue their float trip anyway, terrifying secrets of the town surface. A seven-foot-tall deformed maniac, known by the townsfolk as ?The Boy? is kept under lock and key by the town?s mayor. The Boy?s purpose is simple: kill outsiders. The Mayor of Old Mines releases The Boy and the maniac's hunt begins. One by one, the campers on their float trip are ripped to gory shreds by the enraged, deformed, hulking Boy. But there is great mystery to The Boy. Who is his father? Who is his mother? How did he become so dangerous? In the end, the answers to these questions will put the entire town of Old Mines in danger. The Boy is an unstoppable killing machine, and anyone in his path won't be in one piece for long.

Customer Reviews

Its gore effects are stupid and unconvincing.
Aric Mitchell
No one can possibly take "The Undertow" seriously because this movie has no credibility, and that is not a good thing for horror movie purists like myself.

If I wanted to stare at organs I'll stand inside a butcher shop.

A group of friends travel to the out of the way town of Old Mines for a weekend camping trip. Almost as soon as they cross the county lines, they're pulled over and harassed by the town's sheriff (Joseph Palermo), accosted by a rogue's gallery of redneck's in the local gas n' shop, and told of the legend of a killing machine who roams the very woods in which they plan to set up camp. Of course, as in any good horror movie, the campers laugh about this "Boy" character and chalk it up to townie hysteria at their presence. We soon learn, however, that the Boy is all too real. A caged man/monster, the Boy serves as his father's (who also happens to be Old Mine's mayor) strong arm to keep strangers out of his town. Beaten, tortured, and lied to, the Boy is once again summoned to carry out his father's wishes by killing off the campers. This time, however, the Boy's got his own agenda.
I can't tell you how surprised I was by The Undertow. The film is simply much better than I imagined it's meager budget (nothing!) would allow it to be. It's a testament to the director's ingenuity that the film looked and played out as well as it did, with fantastic special effects (supervised by cult filmmaker Eric Stanze (Scrapbook), who also served as cinematographer), props, terrific locations, and above average performances. While the film's story isn't exactly breaking new ground, the script is solid, and even when it veers into territory well traveled, it's done with a wink and a nod toward the film's that inspired it.
The ace up Wallaces sleeve here is definitely Eric Stanze and his experience with the camera. Stanze knows his stuff, and he and Wallace work together to create a very creepy and effective backdrop for the cast to work against.

Six friends enter the strange town of Old Mines for a weekend float trip. They quickly realize that the town is not friendly to strangers, and they are pressured to leave by the police. When the friends decide to continue their float trip anyway, terrifying secrets of the town surface. The town's mayor has an evil secret-- a 7' deformed son born out of incest, and kept under lock and key. Simply known as "The Boy", he is used as a weapon against unwanted visitors to the city, killing them off when needed. When "The Boy" turns on his father, and the town's people for the years of torment, he does what he knows best and heads for the woods to kill the interlopers.

The Undertow was a great homage to the 1980's backwoods slasher genre. The killer "The Boy" was in a way a carbon copy of Jason Voorhees in Friday The 13th Part 2, with a hint of Humongous. That I liked a lot. I have always thought the sack-headed killer was really creepy and very well done in Friday The 13th Part 2, The Town That Dreaded Sundown and Malevolence. The blood and gore in the movie was great, and very well done for a Sub Rosa Studios movie. Lastly, other than his mask, the killer was very intimidating. Huge. That was a solid plus for the movie, and actually making the movie work.

With typical Sub Rosa Studios acting, and bad dialogue. The long drawn out scenes of screaming got old, and gave me a headache. The acting in some cases took a lot away from the movie, and made me want to fast forward. But, getting past that (which was pretty hard at times), the movie was still redeeming.

I heard about this movie through another review (DeadPit.com) and figured it was a movie I would love to see.

I wasn't really expecting much from this one, but I can honestly say that this was one of the best independent horror films that I've seen in a long time!!!!

The story's nothing really groundbreaking, but it's the way director Jeremy Wallace and crew pulls this movie off that's so refreshing. What I appreciate the most about the movie is that it's very straight forward and serious in its handling of the horror elements of the story (unlike that crappy Cabin Fever flick), which is something you rarely see in horror films these days. The film is very much in the vain of the great 70's horror flicks like the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes. Like those films, the story is simple in nature, and yet it delivers a wonderful sense of dread and tension with a brutal dose of well-executed gore!!!

I've seen Wallace's first flick, The Christmas Season Massacre, and while I thought that movie was good for what it was (horror spoof), he really took a major step forward as a director with this flick (he even wrote the simple, yet extremely effective score for the film). Wallace's confident direction is aided by some fantastic editing and cinematography by Eric Stanze (director of Ice From The Sun and Scrapbook) and a cast that's way above average for a movie of this budget level, who all turn in great performances (especially Trudy Bequette and Julie Farrar).

Horror fans should definitely check this baby out! Like I said, it's nothing original, but it definitely delivers what it promises, which is more than I can say for most of the stuff coming out of Hollywood these days!
