Absolutely terrible acting and an absurd story. The psycho killer sucks - he isn't scary whatsoever. He has no method behind his madness. Just stupid and deranged. The lighting is the only redeeming quality of this ludicrous movie. If this is a college film project (which is what it looks like) - I'd give it a D.
Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time with this flick.
Jeez, such potential wasted on an idiot plot.
Possible SPOILERS ahead!
The story opens up with a man's daughter being killed by a drunk driver. Later, we learn that the father went "crazy" after she was killed and reportedly spends his days in the woods now. Those who go into the woods don't make it out.
Cut to a group of friends going out for a party in the woods. The woods the psycho lives in. Yeah, that one.
From there, the plot devolves into an idiot plot. These characters had multiple chances to get the heck out of the woods to go get help. Instead, they stagger around until it's too late. At one point, most of them are together in their vehicle when the psycho-murderer-slasher dude throws a corpse on the hood of the vehicle. Now, if you were the driver in this movie, would you
A. hit the gas and get the heck out of there?
B. exit the car with everybody else?
If you answered B, then you probably got killed by the psycho-murderer-slasher dude.
Okay, so maybe they panicked. But at one point, one of the girls hitches a ride with a guy. The psycho dude steps out of the woods and the driver stops until the psycho bashes in the window and murders him. I laughed out loud at this point. Who's going to sit there in a working vehicle while someone bashes their window in? Not me. Maybe I have a better sense of self-preservation?
At the end (MAJOR SPOILER ALERT), the last of the girls hitches a ride with a kindly-looking dude who has the same weapons in the back of his car as the psycho owned. As in, he was apparently in on it. Or something? There was no foreshadowing of this that I could see, so the ending fell flat. Way flat.
Nobody Gets Out Alive could have been a decent movie. The premise wasn't that bad, and all the elements of a good slasher were there. But when the characters have to act like idiots to keep the plot going, then it's not fun to watch anymore. (They could have at least been more convincing idiots!) The disappointing ending was just another jab in the ribs.
Things don't get better. Obnoxious, poorly acted teens meet poorly executed demises in the woods. The only people that seem to care less about that fact than me were the other characters. Dead friends seem more an inconvenience.
I was at the premiere of this movie at Horrorhound Weekend, and the filmmakers' drunken behavior both before and during the screening was an embarrassment, ruining the experience for those of us trying to give this movie a chance. If they had so little respect for their own work as well as the audience, then I highly advise that you respect yourself by not watching this piece of garbage.
It should be obvious from the synopsis alone, "A group of partying teenagers out in the woods..." that this movie is going to suck. And it does. Aside from some ridiculously bloody deaths, there is nothing intriguing about this movie. The acting is horrible. The script is worse. Even the camera angles and the way the movie is put together seem amateurish. This strikes me as something some college students might have made for an end-of-class film school project, but as far as entertainment value... it has none. I've seen more entertaining horror on the sci-fi channel--"Sharktopus" anyone?
