I won't give away the plot but I will say that it is a movie about cheaters getting the fates they deserve. With Ethan Zohn as the standout performance in the movie, all the stars do their best to make the movie that much more entertaining. Directed by Robert Kubilos, the director of over 24 previous films, his ability to manage the egos of the different stars makes the movie a fun romp through the supernatural. Just as important, the movie was co-written by Rob Cesternino (Survivor: Amazon, Survivor: All-Stars), Eric Mittleman (Producer - Comic Book: The Movie and Creature Unknown), and Scott Zakarin (co-producer of Bruce Campbell's 'Man with the Screaming Brain' and producer of Sid Caesar's 'Buried Treasures' DVD's). The three writers put together a story that has an unexpected twist that I had never seen in a horror film before. More importantly, a similar twist was recently used in a big budget production starring Reese Witherspoon!
As a fan of film, this independent film, put together by these creative minds, makes for a new and different movie. Are you going to experience special effects the likes of which are seen in $100 million dollar big budget effects films will make? No.Read more ›
You must be a strong believer in reality TV to enjoy this movie.
Frankly, I'm still looking for a good reason why this movie was made. It was tied to a reality show that aired solely on E! (not exactly the best place to gain visibility). It was then aired on E! (sanitized) and released directly to DVD with very little promotion. After watching it, it's easy to see why the producers tried to forget about it. There are a few average performances (any truly good performances would have been prohibited by a brain-dead script), but for the most part, the "actors" noticably fake their way through their lines. Steven Hill and Jenna Lewis appear to at least try to make the most of their lead roles of Oliver and Kirsten, and Trish Schneider, while playing comatose for part of the time, seems to enjoy the villany of her murderous ghost (though so much of the plot involving her seems odd and even silly). But others in the film (particularly Johnny Fairplay and Ethan Zohn) are ludicrous in their attempts to feign acting ability.
All things considered, "The Scorned" suffers from substandard acting and directing, has average production values (at best) and one of the worst scripts ever to make it to the screen. Again, that makes it hard to comprehend why it ever saw the light of day. If zero stars were a possibility, I'd seriously consider that, but I'd certainly never consider buying it.
Anyway, a murder in a beach house leaves a woman named Raina dead with her throat cut. She becomes a vengeful spirit who is out to kill unfaithful lovers. Months later she finds a treasure trove as a whole group of people move in who are unfaithful to each other. This list of stars includes Jenna Lewis, Jenna Morasca, Ethan Zohn, and Johnny Fairplay from "Survivor", Bob Guiney from "The Bachelor", Trishelle Cannatella, Tonya Cooley, and Steven Hill from "The Real World", Stacie Jones Upchurch from the Apprentice, Erika Landin from "Big Brother", and so on and so forth...There's also a boatload of cameos by other reality stars like Nikki McKibbin, Gervase Peterson, yadda yadda....
It seems the main goal of the film was to stuff as many of these never-was-beens into a movie and if that was the goal then it was a success. The film comes off as a fan-boy project. It was written by another Survivor alum Rob Cesterino and Rob might want to look for another deserted island to move to because I don't think he'll have many people knocking on his door.
Guiney who plays the beach houses landlord and Zohn actually don't come off to bad. I suppose you could see them scratching out a living acting. As for the rest, well they pretty much were very bad and I hope none of them took the film too seriously.
