Editorial Reviews

Venom is a fright-filled voodoo thriller loaded with a sizzling cast of hot young stars. Set deep in the eerie swamps of southern Louisiana—Agnes Bruckner (Murder by Numbers), Jonathan Jackson (Tuck Everlasting) and Meagan Good (The Unborn) are among a group of teenagers trying to uncover the truth behind a friend's mysterious death. What they find is an evil force more deadly than anyone could have imagined. Now they are the ones running for their lives. Also starring Bijou Phillips (Hostel: Part II) and Method Man (How High).

4.0 out of 5 stars R rated horror? Count me in September 19, 2005
Its kind of a sad state horror films are in right now. What angers me the most about the PG-13 horror films we've been seeing recently is that they were originally supposed to be R. For instance, all of the "unrated" movies coming to DVD (see Grudge, Ring 2, Dark Water, Darkness...the list can go on and on), they were cut down from an R rating to achieve that PG-13 group. Whenever I bring this up I get yelled at (mostly by those unable to see R rated movies) because they think PG-13 horror films are the end all of horror. What they are missing is that in the past most, if not all, horror films were rated R and it just feels like a dumbing down when you can't go anywhere to find an R rated horror film but lo and behold PG-13s abound.

I apologize for the digression but it does serve a purpose for this review. The reason I give Venom a 4 star rating as opposed to the 3 or 3.5 it probably deserves is based on the timing. I saw this movie this last weekend because my friend suggested (after a horrific screening of The Exorcism of Emily Rose the weekend prior) we see something R rated.

We saw Venom and we both enjoyed it. Its a throwback to the movies we watched growing up like Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street and Halloween. You know the movie, the unstoppable killing machine that doesn't seem too anxious in killing you and settles for simply trudging slowly toward you. Slow, but unstoppable, and always seems to show up when the protagonists least expect it. Bullets don't do anything, fire gets shrugged off and yet the killer comes onward killing everyone around the protagonist until he or she (she in this case) can't take it anymore and fights back.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Jangles March 5, 2006
Format:DVD
This is yet another horror film that had me fooled thanks to the previews. When I saw the previews, it appeared that this was a truly disturbing film that was sure to creep you out and leave you unsettled. When I saw the film, however, it turned out to be another teen horror flick.

Granted, this movie was quite a bit more entertaining and frightening than some others I'd seen recently (Cry Wolf, Dark Water, etc.). The swamp setting did lend the movie an added sense of darkness and dread, further darkening the aura of a backwoods town in the middle of nowhere. Ray, as "Mr. Jangles", was a pretty menacing figure and the incorporation of voodoo into the story also helped to make it a bit more interesting and mysterious. So, the movie had a good setting, tone and villian - ultimately, not too bad.

I'd say it's worth a viewing.

Format:Blu-ray
... but the DVD edition has the option for English or Spanish subtitles.

Echo Bridge is so inconsistent from title to title in whether or not their releases are subtitled and as of this writing, probably 99% of Echo Bridge releases (from their cheapie "20 Horror Films on One Disc!" to single titles) are not subtitled in any way, shape, or form.

As far as a review for "Venom", it was an okay little voodoo-esque thriller with a talented cast of enthusiastic actors who are recognizable to those of us who live for horror flicks:

Agnes Bruckner (as Eden Sinclair, the protagonist)
Jonathan Jackson (as Eric, Eden's on-again, off-again boyfriend)
Meagan Good (as Cece, friend and co-worker of Eden)
The late Deborah Duke (as Miss Emmie, the excavator of "the box" and Cece's aunt)
Bijou Phillips (as Tammy, another friend of Eden)
Laura Ramsey (as Rachel, and yet another friend of Eden)
D.J. Cotrona (as Sean, a friend of Eric),
Method Man (as Deputy Turner),
and the incorrigible Rick Cramer (as the misunderstood truck driver Ray Sawyer)

"Venom" was produced by Kevin Williamson and directed by Jim Gillespie.

I liked "Venom" on DVD enough to pick it up on Blu-ray, assuming that if the DVD had English subtitles that the Blu-ray edition would certainly have subtitles?

I was wrong. The Blu-ray edition of "Venom" is NOT subtitled either in English or Spanish and Echo Bridge has fooled me once again.

In all fairness though, the BD edition does not state that it is subtitled so I really can't blame Echo Bridge for my not being careful enough and not reading the rear-cover specifications.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie.....Not Sure Why Some Don't Like It July 6, 2006
Format:DVD
I have no clue why this film didn't do any better than it did. It really is a very good movie and contrary to popular belief, it actually does manage to generate some supsense. I mean, true, we don't have any big-name faces in the cast, but who needs those anyway? The cast works fine, and most of them are able to act fairly decent. The only part where this movie falls short, is the last 3-4 minutes or so, when the lead female character finally kills Ray Sawyer. That whole sequence just seemed out of place. The colors were over-saturated, and it was entirely too bright in contrast with the rest of the film. Obviously, this small screw-up is not enough to make the movie bad, which is why the film deserves 5 stars and not 3. This is definitely worth a look!
