5.0 out of 5 stars TERRIFYING, AND VERY, VERY DISTURBING, May 10, 2009
This review is from: Perkins' 14 (After Dark Horrorfest III) (DVD)
Perkins 14 is a taut, fast-paced chiller that delivers the goods compared to most of the bargain basement junk that passes for horror these days.

Victims are slashed, impaled, mutilated and bludgeoned to death but it's not a slasher movie.

Victims are torn apart and eaten but it's not a zombie movie.

What it is about is Perkins a physcopath who has kidnapped 14 children and kept them for 10 years locked in cages in his basement where he has abused, starved, and drugged them out of their skulls, and he has videotaped each one showing the stalking, kidnapping and abuse of each child.

Kyle, one of the last kidnapped is the son of the local sherrif named Dwayne Hopper who is wracked with guilt over the fact that he gave up too quickly trying to locate his missing son. Hopper also has an adulterous wife and a goth-light daughter who has the type of boyfriend you wouldn't invite over for Sunday dinner with Mom & Dad. The cages are accidently unlocked, Sheriff Hopper kills Perkins and then the carnage begins to escalate in a series of brutal and gruesome killings.

The father-son reunion towards the end is both heart-breaking and
horrifying. The movie is left open-ended for a sequel and I hope they never do make one. A sequel is unneccesary and would just be a rehash and pointless to try to "improve" the original.

The movie is really a 4.5 rated movie bacause of a few lapses in logic but I opted to rate upwards rather than backwards because the movie took me by surprise and has more thrills and chills than some movies that try to pass themselves off as horror.

Wow. This sounds effing awesome. How creepy that he kept them for ten years. It sounds a bit like that Ashley Judd movie "Kiss the Girls". Thanks for bringing this one to my attention.

The guy who wrote this review obviously works for the company. There is no way a sane person could like this garbage movie.
