  • I am honestly not sure what to make of this film. When I came here to read the reviews, it was mainly to find out what the heck had happened, why I was left so confused and frustrated when the credits rolled. This and Mulholland Drive are two of the most confusing movies I have ever seen, and I have the distinct impression that one of two things happened with each movie: either the film was incredibly well-done, well-acted, well-shot, and well-written and just flew over my head because I'm too stupid to understand it, or it was shoddily written and pieced together like a puzzle assembled by a drugged, blindfolded, mitten-clad psycho. I'd like to think that I'm intelligent enough to pick up on clues in a movie, so the fact that both of them left me so puzzled frustrated me beyond belief.

    Having read the reviews, I have a better understanding of what Attic Expeditions was about. I'd like to give it a third viewing (yes, I've already watched it twice, to no avail) and see if I can actually follow it. I enjoyed Seth Green's performance, although I can see how he might be chided for copying Brad Pitt's "12 Monkeys" character. I enjoyed the way the movie was shot, I enjoyed the twisted-ness of it. Some of it was awkward and predictable, but only at the last minute. You'd be given a tiny clue about something, then you'd guess what it was and right away you'd be rewarded with the information you just guessed.

    I'm sorry if this is obtuse, but I'm trying not to give anything away here. If you're curious to know what I thought upon my third viewing after knowing more of what it was about, feel free to e-mail me. Or maybe I'll leave another review here. Or maybe I'll just take the DVD, toss in onto a burning pile of other movies I hated, and never look back.

    Stay tuned.
  • The above tag line is a tip-of-the-hat nod to a previous IMDB user, and I agree. Seriously, I have never read such a deep divide in viewers over a horror movie! I have to wonder about people who call this movie "boring." What do audiences want from horror films today? There is real fear, dread and (most importantly) disorienting. I must agree that many younger minds with short attention spans will not enjoy this movie, but if you were intrigued by 12 Monkeys, Memento, Eraserhead, and other movies you HAD TO WATCH AND THINK ABOUT, I highly recommend this movie. Don't like loose ends? Tough! Want everything explained? Out of luck! But if you read Phillip K. Dick, H.P. Lovecraft or William Hope Hodgson, you will be pleased with this highly literate movie. I am looking forward to more from the director.
  • This movie has exactly the right balance between horror and humor and, more importantly, between revealing too much and revealing too little. Some questions are answered at the end, but some are not, and I for one like that some are not. It is not a pat, boil-in-the-bag horror movie. It is intelligent and requires that you pay attention, but it's not as if that's terribly hard to do, because it succeeds in being entertaining throughout. Those expecting pornographic vivisections will be disappointed; compared to movies like "Hellraiser," this film is more rightly classified as "psychological thriller" than horror. It remains an excellent movie, however, and if you don't get it maybe you ought to watch again. Pay a bit more attention next time.

    'The Magus' meets 'Twelve Monkeys' meets 'Peeping Tom' meets 'No Such Thing.'

    Give this film a chance. Sure it is clumsily produced, numbly acted and ineptly directed. Most films are, but the writer is working on something interesting here. What 'the Cube' was to staging, this is to plot twists. And unlike 'Memento' or 'Mulholland Drive,' there is no single 'explanation.'

    Start with this thought: someone in the play wrote the play, but to everyone else, the pages are blank. Whose perspective are we following?

    The simple answer is that some mysterious Dr. Ek is manipulating the situation with drugs and actors. But wait! The actors (and Ek and house) are imaginary because someone is manipulating the whole thing directly with noodles into the brain. But if there is manipulation or noodling, it is to get the book (the script) which has mystical powers of creation. But wait! If the book has such powers, probably the whole thing is a matter of psychic hallucination resulting from a ritual interaction with the book. In this case, the solution is simple.

    But wait! The book comes with the house, the house forcing Trevor to write the book, then forming the basis of nearly all the vision and forcing him to write constantly to populate it. This is one of the two novel ideas: that the house is one of the possible powers behind the thing. Orson Welles worked with this. A few haunted house films. 'Belly of an Architect,' for instance. Few others, but highly intellectual.

    The other clever idea is that several forces are at war to control and tell us the story. Trevor, Ek, the book, the house. No one in particular wins and the movie you see depends a lot on how you see the world. '2001' used this trick (HAL, the humans, and the aliens) but most famously in popular film : 'Children of Paradise.'

    This is one of the few films I know which would have been improved with less nudity. Its just too clunky and unnatural and it distracts from the cleverness. But about that nudity: the second time I saw this was from a DVD rented from Blockbuster. As with many direct-to-video projects, Blockbuster cuts out some nudity in versions manufactured specifically for them. Still pretty shocking in one spot though.

    This film follows 'Blair Witch 2' in sophistication of nested and warring narratives and makes me impressed by the ability of kids today to manage these abstract notions.

    Ted's Evaluation -- 2 of 4: Has some interesting elements.

    I can just see the writer and producer sitting down after they finish reading it: "Umm, what does it mean?" "He completed the spell, and his Fiance is stuck in a psychopath's body." "Ahhhh. . . Cool!"

    I'll give this movie points for creativity, camera work, and lighting. Very well shot film and some pretty scenes to look at. However, there were a lot of cliche's in this film too. Flashing back to scenes already played, fast cuts, hard music and bugs, scary white people coming out of uniformed houses. There's a lot of this style out now days, it's getting old.

    The only reason I continued to watch the movie was because I didn't know what the hell was going on. The one thing the movie understood was that, it's scarier if we don't know what's happening. (something horror writers now days need to understand) However, it's always nice to kinda tell us (if not at the end, then somewhere), what was actually going on. It can be done w/o explanation (see The Birds), but I'm still confused.

    It had potential, but I think they flushed it down the drain.
  • Trevor Blackburn is put under psychiatric care after killing his girlfriend and then going into a four year coma. As part of his treatment, he is placed in Love House, a community of nuts hoping to become rehabilitated. But why can't Trevor recall the murder he's accused of?

    Other people -- at least two -- have called this a "thinking man's horror film", and I'm going to join them. The events are shown out of order, usually out of context, and even once the film is completed you may or may not have understood everything that happened. At one point, there's even a nod to H. P. Lovecraft, though as near as I can tell, this film has no direct connection.

    The "thinking man" aspect is either going to intrigue you or frustrate you. I am a thinking man, as is my friend Seth who watched it with me, and we were frustrated. Had it not been for our man-crushes on Jeffrey Combs and Ted Raimi, the film probably would have been turned off. Now that I've seen it through, I'm curious to watch it again knowing the answers from stage one... but only so I can understand it, not because I think I'll like it.

    While Combs and Raimi made the film enjoyable, and a brief Alice Cooper was nice (anyone seen "Prince of Darkness"?), what I really disliked was the actor playing Trevor, Andras Jones. Jones simply can't act for dog snot in this picture, comes off as not knowing his own emotions and more often than not is just lost. I didn't care about him, and as a lead, that's horse apples. His supporting actor, Seth Green (playing "Douglas"), wasn't much better. Green has his moments and this wasn't one of them.

    There's some minor gore, some drug use, a fair dose of sexuality... so that's good. And director Jeremy Kasten does a fine job at the helm. One scene follows Seth Green around a game room and is executed flawlessly. This is probably more due to the cinematographer, but regardless it stood out. Kasten went on to make "The Thirst" (which I enjoyed) and the remake of "Wizard of Gore" with Crispin Glover. This was his directing debut, and a job well done.

    I picked this film up used for $2.99 on the power of Jeffrey Combs alone, and it was worth that for the viewing... if you can find the same deal, pick it up. Or rent it. Don't buy this one, unless you really want to irk your friends and ruin a good night of drinking. Usually I drink during horror films, and on this one I didn't. Good thing, or I never would have made it through. Thinking man, yes. Drinking man, no.
  • I just finished watching the DVD and can't wait to see it again! Jeremy Kasten does a great job for his first movie. He creates an atmospheric, unsettling, and at times just plain weird journey into subjective reality. The film has a certain insecure tension -- just when you think you're putting it together, Kasten throws in another piece of the puzzle and you have to re-think what you thought you knew. I enjoy films that don't spoon-feed me the answers, but rather allow me to draw my own conclusions. I also like the use of the unreliable narrator...the last 20 minutes is a roller-coaster ride! Jeffrey Combs is absolutely perfect as Doctor Ek, and Seth Green is hilarious yet unnerving as the mysterious Douglas. Seth always brings multiple levels to his characters, and I rate this as one of his best performances. Don't be put off by the fact that this movie may be referred to as "low budget" - in my opinion, that fact makes the production all that more sincere. The DVD will give those with a home theater system a good workout and add to the overall experience...and watch it after the sun goes down with all the lights out too!

    Warning: Spoilers
    (SPOILER ALERT ...)

    This movie is about the hero's (Trevor's) need to extricate his soul from a demonic/satanic ritual. That is, after killing Faith, he aborts said ritual (by not killing himself), putting his soul in limbo. The mad scientist somehow finds this out and kidnaps him to find the book used for the ritual. The (incarnate) earthly and trapped parts of his soul wake up from the mad scientist's implantation surgery (which is supposed to allow the mad scientist to read Trevor's thoughts(?)) at almost the same time. (To see this, note that the earthly part wakes up from the implantation surgery just before the one nurse says that her shift is over, while the tormented half wakes up two or three seconds later, just after.) Further evidence that they awaken in parallel realities is that the residents and principals of the "House of Love" introduce themselves to Trevor the second times he awakens, whereas Trevor already knows them. Trevor's knocking on both sides of the trunk (later on) further illustrates this point.

    Trevor must reunite his ripped, tormented soul. Unwilling to relieve this tension by letting Faith kill him--to complete the ritual--he follows his dreams/visions. He therefore gravitates to the trunk in the attic. The significance of the trunk is revealed in the magic attached to it, which is revealed in the implicit inability of the mad scientist and others, and the explicit inability of Douglas, to open it; the trunk is controlled by a force which allows only Trevor to use it. Inexorably, the pieces of his soul meet (on either side of the opening to the trunk) and unify. Trevor's torment, and the film, abruptly resolve. His painful dreams evaporate and he regains his earthly existence.
  • Promising in some ways. It looks like it might go somewhere - until the last half hour, which becomes increasingly unpleasant and confusing, climaxing in an arrogant or incompetent refusal to explain and fill in the loose ends. The performances and photography are quite competent. Unfortunately, it all collapses like a schizoid house of cards at the end. When it works, it feels like a combination of Suspiria and Jacob's Ladder.
  • Edgy? Stylish? Though-provoking?

    More like Unoriginal, Stupid, and Confusing. This movie was a monumental letdown, all things considered. For starters, the plot was a messy rehash of several other "successful" movies. The writer must have been watching Fight Club, Vanilla Sky, and the Truman Show on 3 different TVs and thought "Wow, if I could only rip all 3 of these off, I could make the most mind-bogglingly retarded waste of film known to man!" The main character, Noname McNeedsActingLessons, looked like some horribly distorted charicature of George W. Bush. Seth Green, who enjoyed fame in questionably "mainstream movies," figured he could make an easy paycheck with this one by doing a bad Brad Pitt impression from 12 Monkeys. The plot jumps so much from one ripoff to another that I can just see the director thinking, "I can't wait until THIS scene, it'll blow their minds." Why yes, it did blow my mind... I WAS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS GOING ON! "But it's deep man," says the director, pointing out all the complex metaphors. About as deep as Corky Romano. Ted Raimi's character, apparently commenting on the plot, said it best, "There's too many variables." Yes, Ted, too many indeed.

    Skip this one. If you fall into a trap and happen to see it, skip forward to Ted Raimi's scenes. He's the savior to an otherwise convoluted mess of pretentious crap.
  • There was a film I reviewed a bit ago entitled "13 Seconds", in which your typical horror genre gets a confusing twist ending coupled with horrid acting and a bland plot. As you can tell, I wasn't a fan of this film and was momentarily turned away from cheap horror movies. "13 Seconds" garnered several awards, is recognized in the film community, but for me was just a sloppy film with the irritable inconsistent voice dub. I think that is what harmed this film the most – but then I gave up on my plight to avoid cheap horror films and decided to watch the equally low-budget horror/suspense/thriller film "The Attic Expeditions", and I must admit, I was rejuvenated. This film was a breath of confusing fresh air. From the sporadic, yet strong, opening, through the rest of this nonconsecutive film about magik (with a "K"), the philosophy of modern medicine, and perhaps love, I was hooked. From the films that I have watched lately, this was one that I was eager to start from the beginning and watch again. While I cannot say that director Jeremy Kasten has created a flawless film, he has impressed me by giving us a strong story with a limited budget. This was a film obviously loved by everyone involved and in my eyes has the ability to become a cult classic if watched by an open-mind audience.

    We follow the story of Trevor Blackburn, who may or may not have killed his fiancé while performing a magik ritual. Due to possible insanity, he is operated on and forced to recuperate in a facility simply called "House of Love". It is in this "house" that Trevor continues to have flashbacks coupled with nightmares, coupled with sudden murders of the other tenants. He is observed, from a distance – through television monitors, by a Dr. Eck (played sinisterly by Jeffrey Combs) and his associate, Dr. Coffee (played by Ted Raimi). This give us the impression that perhaps this is not the place we assume, and that it is just a set-up by Eck for a more dutiful purpose. Then, quite classically, as we think we know the truth to this film, director Kasten gives us one last push of the unknown and before the screen our minds are shattered.

    I think what appealed to me the most was that albeit this was a very low-budget film, the creators did everything possible to make this less cheap and more detail oriented. I loved the visual style of this film. The way that our characters acted, the way the interacted with each other, and their deadpan ability to bring the unknown to the surface. It was as if I was watching "Evil Dead" for the first time (not that I want to draw similarities – it was just a similar viewing experience). There were elements of Gilliam, mixed with Raimi, mixed with Nolan all rolled together. Although the international name for this film is "Memento 2", please do not connect the two. This film stands on its own. Kasten assembled a flawless cast with a surprising turn from Seth Green (playing a very Patrick Bateman character) and the always fun Jeffrey Combs. I even enjoyed the Kyle MacLachlan-esquire style of Andras Jones – then there was Ted Raimi, whom didn't almost fit within this film, but still made it fun to see him sweat. Alas, those eager to see Alice Cooper, he was only in it for a brief moment, though the special features claim he was a valuable asset to the production. I didn't see it. With this seemingly strong cast in place, it was up to the storyteller to get the rest in motion – and it happens successfully.

    "The Attic Expeditions" is not a one-time-viewing film. I think what makes me rave so much about this film is the way the story was told, out of context, out of consecutive order, out of sanity. You cannot make an assumption about this film from just one viewing, one must go back – rewatch, and enjoy. I will say this much, it is not a film for everyone. The scenes can be unsettling and a bit disturbing since you do not quite fully know if he is in his mind or in ours. Rather disturbing actually. Kasten plays not only with the character's minds, but also with ours. "The Attic Expeditions" is one of those films that leaves the room either going, "gosh that was horrible", or wide open for discussion. For me, I needed someone to talk to. I wasn't sure what was real, and what was in Trevor's mind. That is what makes this film stand out. While there were some shots of a boom in some scenes, but again, that is what makes this low-budget film even better. Concentrate on what you cannot comprehend, and this will be a phenomenal film for you.

    Overall, I gotta say that after a slew of mediocre Hollywood budget films, this was a volatile breath of fresh air. I challenge anyone that dislikes this film to ask "why" -- is it because you didn't understand the story or because it was cheaper than the mass produced films. With a film like "The Attic Expeditions", more chances are taken – the risks are higher, and the final product is worth a second viewing. As others have quoted, and I believe them, this is a horror film for those of us that pride ourselves on intelligence. It is smart, challenging, and grossly entertaining. I don't mind calling this film cheap because it entertained me mentally, and I will go back to rewatch to see if a second viewing would un-muddle the questions looming in my mind. I was impressed.

    If I went insane, I would definitely choose Dr. Eck to ensure my return of sanity!

    Grade: **** out of *****
  • Horror in the Attic Late night horror movie on the Horror Channel. It made a desperate stab at being a complex psychological horror, but ended up being boring and falling into the same trap as almost all modern horror films. There is no real atmosphere, it felt very phoney and just very typical. The complexity of it seemed just tacked on and was not very complex at all.

    I'd read it was a "thinking man's horror film" and in the vein of Lovecraft, but it was far from it. I found it rather simple and pointless. If you really were a "thinking man" then this isn't going to make you think, try "Jacob's Ladder". And for being like "Lovecraft", the man didn't fill his stories with sex and nudity, while this film has two sex scenes and more nudity. Just making vague references doesn't make it like something. If that were the case then here: "God" - now this post is like the Bible.

    Slightly above average horror movie, but better than most of today's American tripe.
  • Anyone can make a disjointed tale with blood, sex and drugs, that has no plot line, has a lot of inexplicable happenings and has no tie up at the end and we are supposed to think its really deep? Is that what passes for a psychological thriller now in 2006? Spare me. I watched the whole thing and I was bored silly. It wasn't even done well enough for me to want to know what the real story was.

    There must be a sane starting point at either the beginning or end. it certainly won't be in the middle...Something to hang onto. This one did neither. Waste of time and I am not a kid with a short attention span.

    However, The I Inside with Ryan Phillipe and Robert Sean Leonard is excellent and did make me think. Check it out.
  • Trevor (Andras Jones from Nightmare on Elm Street 4 and Sorority babes in the Slimeball Bowl-a-Rama) kills his girlfriend and is sentenced to a stay in the half way house for loons by Dr. Elk (genre staple Jeffrey Combs). But things are not nearly what they seem. I wanted to like this I really did, and to it's merit it did start off rather well, but as it went on it became a casualty of too many twists spoiling the stew. The ending is anti-climatic as well and left me thinking "Is that it???" I read that this is a 'thinking persons' horror film. I'm sorry but that's pretty laughable as anyone with half a brain could follow it. Mindfu@k movies can be good, when they have a point to them (ie. Fight Club, the Twin peaks series) But this isn't one of those.And Seth Green isn't really the best actor in the world to put it diplomatically.

    My Grade: C-

    DVD Extras: both widescreen and fullscreen versions; behind the scenes featurette; and Theatrical trailer

    Eye Candy: Beth Bates shows everything, Shannon Cleary goes full frontal
  • Wow! This is one of the best movies I've ever seen! Beth Bates is amazing, and absolutely stunning!She is by far one of the most talented actresses I have ever seen. Though I have seen her in many other things besides this. She is extremely beautiful. Seth Green is also great, as he is in every movie he has been in. I would definitely recommend taking a look at this movie. This movie will freak you out. It is very scary, and will definitely make you question reality. Though this is a "low budget" film. The director does such a good job, that you can not even tell. This is definitely a great cult film...and if you like getting scared,i would definitely recommend seeing this movie
  • Random43927 September 2004
    I personally loved the movie. You may not figure it all out, in fact I'm

    sure that you won't figure it all out. It's one of those movies... but it's

    a GOOD ONE! Besides, Seth Green, Ted Raimi, and Jeffery Combs all rock!

    As for scariness, I don't rate it very high, although there are plenty

    of good scenes that are pretty freaky. Of course, not many films scare me much. I highly suggest seeing this movie, if it seems at all like the sort of

    film you're into.

    D: Jeremy Kasten S: Andras Jones, Seth Green, Wendy Robie, Ted Raimi, Beth Bates, Alice Cooper, Jeffrey Combs.

    This is a story about a man named Trevor, he is young, ambitious and has a beautiful girlfriend. Until one day he wakes up from being in a coma for 4 years. Just to find out he has murdered his girlfriend. Now under the care of his doctor, Dr. Ek (Combs), who twists and turns things beyond Trevor's comprehension. Trevor now needs the help of his new friend Douglas (Green) and anyone else who can help him.

    This film is nothing but nonsense througout it's sharade. The acting on the leading man Jones' part was poor. Though the movie does have some strong parts as far as Green, Combs and Raimi go, the acting on their part was very enthusiastic and well drawn out.

    Co-Starring: Jerry Hauck, Beth Bates, Nancy Wolfe, Brenda James, Scott Levy.
  • When Trevor Blackburn awoke from a coma,he had no memory of his past.In search for answers,he breaks into the secret attic with another patient,as the others are being killed one by one.A darkly sinister doctor played by a horror regular Jeffrey Combs informed him that he'd been committed to a sanitarium for the criminally insane for the sacrificial murder of his fiancée.Thrown into a bizarre halfway house filled with strange psychos he plunges into a violent world of magic,nightmares,wild sexual escapades and torturous medical experiments.The above synopsis on the back of my tape sounded pretty good,so I finally decided to check this film out."The Attic Expeditions" is a pretty unusual horror flick.It contains a decent amount of violence and nudity.The plot is interesting as it showcases plenty of unique twists and turns,but in the end becomes extremely confusing.8 out of 10.
  • This is the type of film that some might say only becomes clear in the final minutes. I'd partially agree with that. A young man wakes from a 4 year long coma to discover that he murdered his fiancé and has been locked in a mental institution. His doctor, seeking to treat him, sends him to The House of Love for therapy. Once there he meets the other patients and is troubled by half realized memories and strange deja vu ... not to mention the murder of some of the other patients. I won't say any more than that plotwise. Andras Jones plays the lead, and I enjoyed his performance. I would have to admit that his acting is inconsistent throughout the film, but somehow, this makes his performance all the more endearing. The inconsistency seems to suit the storyline in a positive manner. Seth Green, who I strongly disliked before this film, has made me a fan. Beth Bates is, to be quite honest, pretty bad performance wise (though gorgeous in my humble opinion). In her defense, much of the little dialog she has, would be tough for even the most talented actress. All of the other actors do a good job. The score is wonderful, the type you'll remember after one viewing. The sets are nice, especially considering the budget, and the film is very well shot. You can probably find the DVD for 10 bucks. A real bargain in my opinion. This is the kind of film that you'll either love or hate. If you love it, you'll likely be left to ponder it for days. I said earlier that I would only partially agree with someone if they said that it only becomes clear in the end. It may become clear, but it raises more questions than an answer should. Bravo!
  • The story, which reminds me of awakening from a bad dream, makes for an interesting movie. The main character, Trevor Blackburn (Andras Jones), convicted for the murder of his fiancée, has been left in the care of psychiatrist Dr. Ek (Jeffrey Combs). As a result of Dr. Ek's treatment Trevor suffers amnesia. Viewer and main character alike are challenged with separating dream from reality as the main character pieces together his memories. There is an occult dimension in the movie but its significance is never elaborated in the open ended script. However, the script is elegant and leaves ample room for interpretation.

    Rather disappointingly though, the atmosphere never builds dense enough to support the story. I blame this on the hallmarks of low budget production that shine through. Acting is wooden and the set decor and make up kitschy. There is not a single interesting camera angle throughout. However, the score is quite good, as was the opening credits.

    Within the group of small budget horror movies I'd give this movie an eight, however, given that this is not a cult movie and there are so many better movies out there, I've settled on a 3.
  • This movie didn't make a lot of sense but if you pay attention you'll understand the ending. Most people cannot do this because they are to slow to keep up with the Bachelor and Survivor reality shows. I'm sick of reading people comment and rave about sorry movies like Spiderman and rip independent horror movies like this. There are a few twists so if you get lost while watching Weakest Link avoid this. To me it doesn't get better than this. I like independent movies and I like horror movies but any movie that has Jeffrey Combs, Seth Green and Alice Cooper is my kind of movie. Definitely rent this is if you are a fan of Jeffrey Combs.
  • The Attic Expeditions is painful on viewers who demand to have everything sorted out for them in sane, palpable order. Its plot is coy, but definitely not vague.

    Sure, it's a horror movie, but the paranoia and the absurdity come first. Few comedies have so satisfying a sense of humor.

    The vivid dollhouse-like color schemes are reminiscent of Edward Scissorhands, but the surreal nature of the film's universe is a schizophrenic A Life Less Ordinary.

    If you shy away from nudity or language, shy away from here...otherwise, give your mind this gentle frappe and thank me afterwards.
  • Ten, yes ten, despite flaws. (All mentioned quite enough in other reviews.) A superb tale that reminded me of the chills I got from reading some of the works of the great master of Horror, H.P. Lovecraft. If that strikes a chord with you - then this may be a find for you.
  • I recently saw "The Attic Expeditions at DragonCon in Atlanta, Georgia.

    Fans of the horror genre should definitely check this film out. It's not a "blood and guts" film, but one that takes your inner fears and smacks you in the face with them.

    The movie is stylishly directed by first-time director, Jeremy Kasten. His work as an editor over the last several years gave him the eye that he needed to direct this film. I really liked his use of the camera as a character. Some directors tend to over-use it to try to make a point. Kasten takes you to that point, but pulls back before going over the top, a point that he deserves much credit for.

    The script is very clever to say the least. With bits of humor spread throughout (mostly delivered by Seth Green), the story pulls you in unlike most of the genre pieces that are floating around these days.

    With great performances by Green, Andras Jones, Jeffrey Combs, Ted Raimi, and a wonderful cameo by Alice Cooper, the film is exactly what the horror genre needs these days.
  • A very stylish movie that takes a lot of themes and meshes them with some success. First time director Kasten shows that he is someone to watch in the future. The performances are generally good especially Jeffrey Combs & Seth Green.

    I would like to see this movie again, just for the fact that I saw it as part of an all night film fest, and my brain wasn't functioning properly. I have the feeling that I might have missed some of the subtle points in the movie. But however, it kept my attention for the whole running time.
