Product Description

Six people are brought together at the funeral of a childhood friend. While settling the estate, they discover a map, which leads them on a search for a long forgotten time capsule, at the request of their dead friend. What they discover reawakens repressed childhood traumas and leads them on a journey through their long abandoned childhood home: a home with a terrible secret and a mysterious dead girl who will lead them to their strange fates.

Amazon.com

A solid cast of name actors enliven this indie ghost story from the 2007 After Dark Horror Fest. Dina Meyer, Frank Whaley, Traci Lords and Gabrielle Anwar are among a group of friends directed to an abandoned home by instructions left in a will by a deceased companion; naturally, they become trapped inside the structure, which is revealed to be a former hospital where behavioral experiments were conducted in prior decades on scores of children. That the group should have a connection to these experiments should come as no surprise to viewers, nor should the fact that the hospital's vengeful spirits plan to keep their secret safe by eliminating the intruders in Ten Little Indians fashion. In fact, there's very little fresh material for horror fans to gnaw on in Crazy Eights: The dialogue is leaden and the plot constantly forces one or more cast member to irrationally wander alone into the darkness in order to meet their fate. Director James K. Jones should be credited for bringing a professional and atmospheric look to his production, and for some restraint in the gore department, but the picture as a whole treads overly familiar territory and is therefore not particularly frightening. The cast certainly tries hard, especially Whaley and Lords. The sole extra is a handful of webisodes that follow the search for Miss HorrorFest 2007. -- Paul Gaita

Crazy Eights, an offering in the second year of the After Dark Horror Fest, is a gory spook story that doesn't offer anything that hasn't been seen plenty of times before, and were it not for it's game cast, this flick would be a pure waste of celuloid. Crazy Eights revolves around a group of old friends (Dina Meyer, George Newbern, Traci Lords, Frank Whaley, Burn Notice's Gabrielle Anwar, and The Wire vet Dan DeLuca who also co-wrote this flick) who are re-united after the passing of a friend of theirs. Turns out that all of them were involved in some sort of dark research and experiments, and soon enough all of them become trapped and start to get picked off. What kills Crazy Eights is it's predictability: you know what's going to happen right before it happens. Not to mention that there are so many non-sensical twists and developments that the film ends up becoming almost incomprehensible as it winds down, and the road getting there is more boring than anything else. The grainy look of the film doesn't make matters any better either, but as said before, the cast is good. All of them, even Lords (who pulls off a great and blood-curdling scream), manage to accomplish some great work, but that's the only thing about Crazy Eights worth mentioning really. All in all, you'll certainly see worse horror flicks, but you can certainly do better than what you get here.

Every once in a while a horror movie comes along with an interesting new spin or a brand new premise. The idea is to create something new rather than a rehash of any of the top ten to twelve horror movie archetypes out there. “Crazy Eights” has a good idea, but it doesn’t really go anywhere with it. Part of the problem is the glaring holes in the plot and the confusing script. The movie starts out like “Without A Paddle” as six friends meet at the funeral of a classmate and are drawn into a scavenger hunt they takes them into a remake of “House On Haunted Hill.” After a variety of strange encounters in their lives, the six are drawn to a barn where they left a time capsule as kids and find a skeleton in the trunk, which may or may not be linked to their pasts. They struggle too briefly with doing the right thing and way too quickly try to shrug it off if but to get very quickly lost on the local dirt roads and end up at an old deserted hospital in the ghost town of Entonsburg within an unidentified Southern state. This is where things start getting confusing. Instead of making efforts to get on their way, they explore the hospital and start getting picked off by an unseen killer in a dress. Thankfully, the gore is done off-camera with the disturbing images revealed only in brief flickering images. It’s difficult to feel sympathetic to the characters unless you’re a fan of the actors. The cast includes George Newbern, Traci Lords, Gabrielle Anwar and a number of actors with whom I’m unfamiliar. The movie never at any moment makes an effort to clear up or resolve any questions, instead pushing forward and killing off its cast like, as Jeff Goldblum once put it, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” ride coming to life and killing the tourists.Read more ›

Neither great nor terrible, Movie blends both the "haunted" genre with elements of a psych thriller. Many standard tropes and some predicable foolish behavior of the characters...or victims. Ending is rather odd and grates a bit. Some interesting plot concepts and camera effects but the good is balanced with the typical bad of the B movie. Worth a watch but not stellar....

A good movie with a good storyline. Trying to figure out who these people are and how they are connected. Unfornuatly it comes at their demise one by one. You would think they would have figured out after the at least the second person dying that it is best to stay as a group since they meet their demise when they are by themselves, but I guess if they did that it would not make for good watching.

I liked this movie. I had a little bit of a different take on this film, but it just seemed obvious to me. The score does drown out some of the dialogue, several times I had to replay just hear what was being said. Unfortunate. That said, and aside, I thought this movie was brilliant. * SPOILER ALERT* In my opinion (and I filled in some blanks here...) these were children who initially were viewed as "psychopaths." Parents brought them to this hospital as part of a study. During the course of the film they remember/discover that at this hospital they were being "taught guilt." Psychopaths in spite of their later chosen career paths: clergy, educator, etc. I kept waiting for the last survivor to utter the words: I'm sorry. It never came. Accident or not, the little girls death was kept a secret between the friends for so long they all forgot. Who forgets a death you took part in?! Really!!! You get one answer.

There's a ghost out there named Karen and she's got a sadistic streak. Half the fun of this movie is finding out who she is and what, and the other half is enjoying the madness and mayhem she wreaks on an awesome cast of horror-y unknowns plus Traci Lords (woot woot) in an Evil Dead Trap basement out in the remote countryside. The beginning makes it pretty clear that all these characters, including their dead friend whose last will sent them here to rural hell to open up a "time capsule", were inducted into some sort of "behavioral experiment" tucked deep back in the rural south, and this is one of many, many movies (Session 9, Hidden, Reel Evil) that make the best of abandoned clinical digs as a setting. This is just really fun.
