Among Friends is the directorial debut of horror queen Danielle Harris. It would appear to be, on the surface, a similar hash of the tired torture horror that has been overdone since the endless Saw sequels and Hostel ripoffs but it actually brings some fresh air to the subject. The story revolves around a group of 6 friends who have come to a 80's themed party hosted by their friend Bernadette. They are drugged by one of the group and forced to see their sins displayed and they have to answer for them. You see them violate the trusts of others and they violate each other to the deepest core. Before the night is over none of them will ever be the same if they can make it through the night. Ms. Harris called in all of her friends to help with this one and you can see she has a very talented group of friends. Standout performances from Alyssa Lobit, AJ Bowen, and Brianne Davis. Abley supported by Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, Christopher Backus, Kamala Jones, Chris Meyer, Dana Daurey, and Kane Hodder as the limo driver. There are a host of cameos including Ms. Harris in a certain costume she made famous. This is great start for Danielle Harris and I can only hope she make her next film as entertaining as this one.
The whole movie is a kind of a bore and I found my attention span drifting which isn't a good thing considering how short the movie is.
The setup is good but the movie really doesn't go anywhere and the ending left a bad taste in my mouth. There is also a post credits scene that is less than satisfying and provides even more disappointment on top of the lackluster ending.
On the plus side, the movie doesn't look bad, AJ Bowen is really cute in all his scruffy glory (he's Crispin from You're Next) and there are a few gory moments.
The actress for the main villain hams it up and her over the top style really works for the role. Too bad her motives just don't make a lot of sense.
Would You Rather has a similar setup and I found that movie to be far more engaging. I recommend that over this flick.
Worth one watch if it's free but you're not missing much if you skip this one.
With the exception of Jules (Brianne Davis) on mushrooms, the film was a bit boring as we watched films of wrong doings etc. This type of film works better as a forced game or a brutal "truth or dare."
Makes for a decent rental. Not on my keeper list.
