As they wander aimlessly through the maze, the murderer follows closely behind taunting them and watching every move. The game turns deadly when the kids decide to separate and weaken their chances of survival.
When the mutilated body of the owner is found, they realize that something is terribly wrong. As they race to the entrance of the maze, the psycho cleverly forces them to follow the path that he wants. Manipulating everyone to his vicious will, the slasher taunts his victims and leads them further into the depths of the maze.
After enduring hours of torture, will anyone make it out of the maze...alive?

I'm sure, if I looked really really hard, I could have found a worse way to start off the day's movie-watching than The Maze, a worthless direct-to-video mess from Steve Shimek, whose major claim to fame is Dragon Wars (to which, I am pained to report, a sequel is being filmed as we speak). But off the top of my head, I can't imagine how. Let me put it this way: I've seen thousands of movies over the years. My spreadsheet lists 2,854 as of right now, and I know there are a lot missing from that list I saw before I started keeping a record back in the mid-nineties. Before today, there were eight films on that list I haven't seen all the way through; they were simply so awful I couldn't finish watching them. Now, there are nine. I finished watching such execrable messes as Spiker, The Living Impaired, the recent remake of It's Alive, Open Water 2, and Zombies Ate My Neighbours: The Movie (the highest film I've actually watched all the way through on my 100 Worst Films of All-Time list; it's at #2). But this? Nope. It joins the smallest subset in my entire movie-watching career.
There is a plot to it, though it's one of those plots that can be summed up in one sentence: five kids break into a corn maze one night and find there's a killer in there with them. And I rush to add that movies with plots this simple can be done correctly, and are on a fairly regular basis. But if plot is not going to be the main strength of your film, you have to have something to balance that out. Bela Tarr makes plotless films all the time, and they're fantastic because the characters are so finely-detailed that you can't help but be drawn into their day-to-day lives. Tarr is also a true auteur with the camera, the kind of guy who makes every shot pregnant with meaning.Read more ›
Before watching THE MAZE, there are a couple things watchers should keep in mind. The first is that the movie is a very low budget picture. It’s obvious that the filmmakers couldn’t afford some of the effects that horror films with a larger budget can. With that said, the filmmakers really used their resources to the best of their ability to make the best movie possible. Also, in reading other reviews and comments about THE MAZE, there are some who find the idea of a murderer killing people in a corn maze to be completely unrealistic. Those people apparently have never been to a large corn maze. I have been to corn mazes that go on for miles and, without outside assistance, it can be quite easy to get lost (of course, a person could just run through the corn rows, but corn leaves cut and can cut quite deeply; I know from the summers I detasseled corn). Personally, I think the idea of a corn maze killer to be an interesting idea.
In general, the first two acts of THE MAZE move at a slow and hesitant pace.Read more ›
