Product Description

Hack!

Reality filmmaking can be murder. Just ask Vincent King (Sean Kanan) and his wife Mary Shelley (Juliet Landau), two passionate horror fans determined to create the ultimate slasher movie with the unwitting help of a cast to die for. Led by deceptively bookish biology major Emily (Danica McKellar), a group of horny college students visits the Kings' remote island to study the local flora and fauna, unaware that they're about to end up on the cutting room floor as they are gruesomely dispatched in the style of both classic and contemporary shockers. Who will survive the Kings' insane homage to horror? Anyway you slice it, “Hack!” will keep you guessing and gasping right until the credits and/or heads roll.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Review

"Brisk and enjoyable...A good balance of splatter and laughs, plus an engagingly sexy McKellar topping a first-rate cast." -- Steven West, HorrorReview.com

This movie attempts to be a parody of slasher/snuff movies but in the end winds up being nothing more than a silly self-parody. Is it comedy? Is it horror? Is it drama? Is it scary? The answer is: YES and NO! And that's a large part of the problem. The filmmakers couldn't decide what they were making and wound up giving us a movie that has a kind of "Jekyll and Hyde" effect. You almost expect the slasher(s) to look at the camera and wink. Juliet Landau and Sean Kanan chew up the scenery at every turn and the latter's behavior is so offputting that you wouldn't be surprised to find that nobody actually got killed although that isn't the case.

The editing is especially sloppy and the whole looks as though it was made up and assembled as they went along. The idea of referring to many other horror movies and then recreating them may have been a worthy concept. But the execution falls flat. And even the twists and turns are predictable for those well versed in the horror genre. Who survives is also predictable, though the appearance of a final survivor and the reason for surviving is so ludicrous that it isn't even funny (unless you compare it to a FAST & FURIOUS movie).

Some movies are so bad that they are actually good. This is definitely not one of them.

Wholly derivative but somewhat effective horror thriller. Students visiting a secluded island to do field research find themselves the subject of a madman's obsession with movies. Considering the budgetary constraints the film is technically well done, the score fine, and the special effects mostly above par. Gore hounds will be pleased with the buckets of blood and a few unexpected twists and mild chuckles elevate what might have otherwise been a ho-hum affair. Who will live, who will die? Does it really matter? Recommended to horror affecianados.

I was very surprised by this one. It begins with your standard horror/slasher setup: group of college kids--and this group contains every cliche` you can think of--leaves to go do extra credit on an island out in the middle of nowhere, things begin to happen, and you'd think "here we are again"--AND you'd be WRONG!

I don't agree that the movie will have you "guessing until the end" (lord, if you can't figure out who's offing the kids, you need to turn in your horror membership card!), but I did enjoy the ending because...well, see for yourself! I think the title for this movie is very appropriate.

The movie's running time is 100 minutes. It is rated R for some nudity and campy blood and violence. You know; you're STANDARD slasher movie! It is also crammed full of named actors appearing in cameos. I almost didn't recognize William Forsythe and Kane Hodder (former Jason Vorhees AND Victor Crowley of "Hatchet" fame) doesn't even receive a mention. Lots of fun. I recommend it.

Ugh. Lousy acting, lame and predictable-from-the-start plot, below-par acting. Good for gore fans, but not for anyone interested in a good story or anything with thrills or scares or even any psychological angle. I actually rented this as Danica McKellar's name lent some credibility to the title, to a small degree. In the end (well, actually, even from the start), it's just another boring microbudget b-horror straight-to-video time-waster. I found it only a waste of time and money.

Making a horror movie is tricky, thankless business. The older you get, the harder it is to find a truly scary film. Maybe this is just a function of age; watch a movie at the age of thirty that scared the bejeezus out of you at age thirteen, and you may find yourself wondering what the teenage you was thinking. Maybe, also, it's simply a matter of unoriginal and uncreative filmmaking. Horror movies stand almost no chance at all of winning any kind of serious awards or acclaim, so their aspirations are limited, and most of the time they try to bank on the things that have worked before, and over and over again. It's a safe bet to say that the bulk of horror writers/directors are no longer interested in actually trying to frighten their smirking audiences. Instead, the genre has devolved into two basic factions: gross-out movies (see the Saw trilogy or either of the Hostels) where all of the creative energy is focused on finding new and interesting ways to slaughter peoiple, or movies that run on pure snark.

Behind the Mask - The Rise of Leslie Vernon and HACK! are NOT scary movies, nor were they meant to be. If you have any doubts about this, they are dispelled from the first frames of both films. Both flicks were written and produced in the same spirit of cheeky playfulness, and both of them work in direct proportion to the number of horror movie references the viewer is able to catch. These are not horror films; they are homages.

BEHIND THE MASK is the smarter of the two, which also means it's the talkier one. Capitalizing on the supernatural serial killer subset of horror films, BEHIND THE MASK seeks to show the genesis of a new killer: Leslie Vernon.
