Teen years ago, fourteen disappearances occurred at a small town, including the young son of Dwayne Hooper. On the anniversary of his son's disappearance, Dwayne suspects that a jail inmate, Ronald Perkins, is responsible. Dwayne sends one of his deputies to investigate Perkin's house, but unleashes the fourteen people from a cellar, all whom are now zombie-like-killers!

This is the worst movie in the After Dark Horrorfest III. The acting is average for a horror movie, but the pacing is too slow, the makeup effects are horrible, and the dialogue is laughable. I forgot to mention about the countless plot holes! The cops in the movie are unbelievable! Hooper's daughter is a teenager, but I find it odd that she is dating a guy that is probably in his thirties and Hooper doesn't care! I know other reviewers hated the ending, but it didn't bother me one bit as I didn't like any of the characters.

Here we have one of the few truly interesting concepts from the Afterdark series. The setup goes that, 10 years prior to the film start, this man Perkins has kidnapped 14 children and raised them in kennels in his basement - we assume he conditioned them to essentially be his army of killers. One of the parents of the kidnapped children happens to be a police officer who comes to suspect the man in his jail cell is the kidnapper, and through a series of events, accidentally sets these 14 psycho killers loose upon the small town to wreak havoc.

As I said, the setup is very interesting. It's a shame, then, that director Craig Singer (who also helmed the abysmal DARK RIDE from the first Horror-fest) could not find an interesting story to tell with such fertile ground. It's hard to really decide where the blame should go. The film is largely shot well, and the acting is, at worst, average for a horror film. So who to blame? I would begin with the writers. The dialogue itself is not particularly bad, but it is the plotting and pacing that cause the film to suffer. The film spends exactly half of its running time getting to the point of releasing the killers - while the first half is interesting in a slowly-building tension sort of way as the cop and kidnapper engage in a "Hannibal Lector" style dialogue, it goes on entirely too long, and as such we aren't given nearly enough time to invest in the aftermath of the psychos being unleashed. A better director would have accomplished the first half of the film in about twenty minutes.

As for that second half, being rushed and probably working with a limited budget, we have to glean from radio calls that the mayhem is going on city wide, because we never really see it.

Perkins 14 is basically another zombie movie. Alright so technically the wild people roaming the streets aren't zombies in the true sense, so let's just call them enhanced ultra relentless zombies. You see it's about these people that were trapped underground for 10 years and drugged to be super powerful, and when released they appear with a vengeance against all the normal people around town. It's about a father, mother and daughter that do whatever it takes to escape and survive. One of the zombies in particular is the oldest son. He was lost for 10 years, assumed dead but he's actually still alive and more aggressive than ever. What will happen when the family comes across their son one evening? You'll have to see for yourself but let it be known the ending is really good. Best part of the movie.

The problem here is that we're not seeing anything particularly new in the zombie genre. This is all run of the mill stuff. Some of the acting is pretty bad as well. The mother spends her entire time freaking out and overexaggerating, the daughter is a dirty little... and the father sporting his Raul Ibanez look (Yankees/Mariners/Phillies baseball player) is one of the highlights being an "always ready for anything" police officer, in addition to being pretty intelligent and focused. The biggest problem is that the man responsible for creating these abnormal beings gets written out of the storyline fairly early and it's a shame since he's clearly the most enticing character in the movie given his unpredictable and offbeat persona. What a waste of potential. Not a bad movie though, hence the 3-star rating. It could have been more.

I've just finished watching for the second time Perkins 14 and then read some of the reviews.
I (of course judging by the one star) could not agree more with the one star ratings and left wondering about whoever would give this five stars.
The story is already outlined many times again in other reviews so I will simply gripe about my issue with this movie.
Let's start off by me agreeing wholeheartedly with another reviewer that the main faults are hard to pinpoint the exact cause of the low rating.
It's not the acting, it's not the gore (there is definitely some in here), it's not the characters persay as they are one dimensional but in an after dark release who would expect anything more, and it's not the scenery or for me nor was the pacing a huge issue.
What really sticks in my craw is the fact that they and when I say they I mostly mean trained police officers, are attacked by psychotic, feral, cannibilistic, brain-washed drones that are A) not armed with firearms and B) not stealthy in the least, and still they managed to basically all die at the hands of the aforementioned psychos before the end.
Yes there is this one part where one of the psychos gets shot three times center mass and than pops back just like a Zombie.
But if I shot him and that's what happened and I'm a police officer with easy access to shotguns, I would just get myself one and shoot them in the HEAD fer Gods sake.
I'd like to see them get up after half their skulls has been taken clean off.
But strangely enough nobody tried or even thought of this.
Seriously the logic in this movie is mind numbing.
One lone man trained at shooting and marksmanship could've of taken all 14 of them out with a few well placed shots.
While watching this entire movie you will be going "Ah C' mon just shoot them already" over and over.
One of the worst pieces of crap I have ever watched.
