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.

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.
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.
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.Read more ›

Pleasantly surprised by this flick! But you have to give it 60 minutes. I was sorely tempted to give up on this movie for the first 50 or so minutes but I decided to stick it... Read morePublished 19 months ago by Vinnie Oliveri
