This movie has been sitting on the shelf since 2008 and is finally being released.
It's about a group of African American Cousins from different backgrounds that are summoned to a cabin/house in the woods during the dead of Winter with promises and visions of Dollar signs dancing in there heads. Unfortunately the only thing they find dancing when they wake up the next morning is a bunch of their older relatives in ceremonial African makeup and costumes chanting the name "Chakabazz" whom is a 200 year old Witch doctor that keeps his powers by using the blood from the descendants of Slaves.
The Story and idea are quite clever but it just doesn't play out in a way that satisfied me. Reasons being,there are virtually no gore effects or blood.
The cast was excellent and the acting very well done even for this somewhat over the top Genre piece.Keith David,Golden Brooks and the beautiful Rochelle Aytes were some of the actors that kept this movie in a watchable and almost enjoyable light.
It came off a bit cheesy at times which I'm a fan of ,if ordered.
I would have preferred this without cheese,too bad movies can't be like Burger King so you can have them "your way".
I imagine there are plenty of people that will enjoy this movie and I would have really enjoyed it as well if there had been a substantial amount of Blood and gore throughout, seeing as the plot did call for it.
Five African American cousins get together at a family reunion. Most of them seem to want to get money from their wealthy relatives. Their elders seem to have other things in mind for them.
Not especially gory for the genre.
Could have been better without all the goofy camera tricks employed. That took away from the movie for me.
There are no extras on the DVD other than a trailer for the movie.
This would be a good movie to show on "Halloween". Here is one question for folks after seeing the movie:
Was Karen having sex with her cousin Henry? I sort got that in the movie. Anyone else?
During the beginning of the movie she said, "We need to tell them about us?"
Did anyone recognize "Aunt Bee" as the mean lady from "Antwone Fisher"?
I just found out from another website that Karen and Henry are unrelated by blood.
I kinda thought Henry might be adopted, so I guess he was.
Everyone knows, when stuff starts to happen, you stay together!
The ending had me screaming, "What?!?".
The ending didn't fit but maybe the director didn't know what else to do.
How often do you see an entire black cast in a horror movie?
I would watch this movie again.
Of course, there are dark secrets involving slaves, demons, curses etc. By the time the film's over, the cast dwindles, mostly off-screen which is odd since the film is unrated.
Director Robert O'Hara tries gimmicky techniques such as split screen and flashy CSI-like editing--that do little to advance the story. Most of the acting sinks to sit-com histrionics, except for Keith David who seems to be having a good time, even when chanting "Chakkabazz" or whatever?
While I appreciate the effort to avoid African-American profiling. THE INHERITANCE just didn't make the grade for me. Sorry, dear!
