Product Description

Ti West s Trigger Man leads the charge in a new wave of stripped-down, scary movies fueled by seat-of-the-pants filmmaking ingenuity. Reggie, Sean, and Ray leave Manhattan for a day trip of deer hunting in Delaware, expecting to drink a few beers in the woods free of the city-life responsibilities that are slowly forcing the childhood friends apart. But with one well-aimed shot, a walk in the sun is transformed into a frantic and desperate fight for survival, as Trigger Man morphs from a character-driven rural amble into a smartly compact and radical survival thriller (Variety). Writer, director, and editor Ti West (The Roost, Cabin Fever II) expertly exploits audience expectations, using minimalist handheld photography to relentlessly build tension to a genuinely terrifying payoff (New York Sun). Presented in association with home-grown, low-budget shock maestro Larry Fessenden s Scareflix, from its smartly written (New York Times) script, to its down-to-the-bone verité look, Trigger Man is an uncommonly naturalistic terror tale (Village Voice) loaded with no nonsense craft and dramatic efficiency (Time Out New York). SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE: Audio Commentary by Director Ti West and Sound Designer Graham Reznick - Audio Commentary by Actors Reggie Cunningham, Ray Sullivan and Sean Reid - Videotaped Q&A from the Los Angeles Film Festival (15 min.) - Theatrical trailer - Presented in 5.1 Stereo Surround

I was really looking forward to seeing this film, especially since I was a big fan of Ti West's last film, THE ROOST. That film had a very withdrawn, simplistic approach to genre material and Ti takes that approach even further with this film. I can see why people wouldn't like this film. The first half hour is very slow, but it builds to a tremendous payoff! When the violence strikes, it's quite shocking. The location work was breathtaking, especially towards the end of the film when our hero wonders through an adandoned factory. The film does require patience, which will probably be met with a lot of disdain for today's A.D.D. cinema-aficionados, but if you're looking for a different kind of movie-watching experience, I whole-heartedly recommend this flick! I can't wait to see what Ti West comes up with next!

I can't honestly say I saw a lot of this. I play B movies as background noise while I work. I didn't look up much because there is hardly any dialogue. The music in the beginning really, really irritated me. The in-city scene did not help me know or care much about the characters. There was a racial slur about an Arabic owner of the convenience store, which didn't make me like them any better. One of the guys had given his girl a ring. One was better off financially than the others. One was in a bad mood. That is honestly all I remember about them. I didn't care much about them when they were hunting. I was hoping there was some twist, other than someone shooting at them in the woods. The plus is that the make up was unusually good. I imagine that the wounds were very accurately depicted. I will try to watch again before my rental expires. What I saw was one dimensional.

As a completionist, I bought this movie because I've enjoyed most everything I've seen from writer/director/editor Ti West, but I'll be completely honest with you -- you can miss this one and be COMPLETELY OK. Even "The Roost" has its charisma and wacky off-the-wall charm, but "Trigger Man" attempts a completely different jump with a new found obsession with minimalism. The end result is a bunch of shaky cam nonsense with amateur actors, a script approximately the length of this review, and a couple of mildly neat exterior shots with a waterfall. About three quarters of the film ticks away while we follow some boring actors pretending to do a series of boring outdoor activities, like lying down silently on logs in the middle of a park (no, I am not kidding). Then, some mystery character starts shooting at them. We never discover who this person is, or why he's doing what he's doing, and I guess it doesn't really matter, because you're probably going to be asleep by then anyway.

This movie is an hour and twenty minutes long, and it's probably an hour too long. I am not being excessive or mean in any way. Once you have watched this movie, you will understand what I mean.

With indie guru Larry Fessenden and Ti West teaming up again, I would've thought we'd be in for something at least as good as "The Roost" was, which, while not perfect by any means, it was still at least entertaining. But this . . . it's just terrible. Just godawful. One of the worst movies I've ever bought on Amazon.

And all this coming from a long time Ti West fan.

I really hate the fact that I had to give this a 3 star rating... director Ti West's first film, The Roost, was such an enjoyable ode to the minimalist horror films of the 70's that it felt like it was made distinctly for people like myself (you know, the guy who constantly rewatches movies like TCM, Halloween, Phantasm, Black Christmas, Dawn Of The Dead, etc., and rarely delivers praise to anything made past the new millenium... yeah, that guy). Instead of rabid bats that turn people into the living dead (!), this time around we get a story about three friends reconnecting for a hunting trip only to become prey themselves to a mysterious sniper. Now for the good and bad points...

THE GOOD:
- Feels almost like a documentary with the way it was filmed, putting you right there with the rest of the group.
- Characters look like they could be normal people you'd see on the street (as opposed to the gorgeous types often found in most movies), and are facing off against an all too real threat.
- Builds a nice sense of foreboding and uses the scenery to create some excellent atmosphere.
- Great effects when the bullets start flying (particularly the brain matter!).
- The music is fantastic! Thumping bass lines that echo back and forth while violens screech and stab at each other, superb stuff!
- For those that hope of making a movie with a dollar and a dream, here's proof that it's possible.

THE BAD:
- Feels like a documentary... filmed entirely with a handheld camera, often with shaky and out of focus results (a friend watching this with me said it made her sick).
- There are only 3 characters that share the majority of screen time (and only 6 all together) and about 30 lines of dialogue is spoken throughout the film.

The "Trigger Man" should have shot every person that had ANYTHING to do with the making of this complete and utter train wreck. There's an hour and 20 minutes of my life I can never get back. A shaking camera and creepy music does not make a film scary. The bad acting, however, mad it HORRIFYING!!!
