| A light-horror movie for a young audience...
Right, well I sat down to watch the 2020 movie "Survival Guide" as it was listed as being a horror movie. So I must say that the expectations that I had for the movie were most certainly not met, as this was a children's movie. It could be considered a children's horror movie, I suppose, but this was by no means a horror movie for a seasoned horror veteran such as myself.

The storyline in "Survival Guide" was pretty straight forward. But again, sitting here to watch the movie as an adult, I must admit that the entertainment level were near zero. This movie was meant for a young audience, no doubt about it.

The acting in the movie was wobbly, to say the least. I will say that it looked like the young actresses and actors were enjoying participating in the movie, but it wasn't stellar acting performances being put on throughout the course of the movie, keep that in mind.

Visually then this movie was not impressive. They made use of a little bit of CGI for some special effects for some magic scenes, and that was about it.

Now, I am sure that if I was maybe 12 years old then I would enjoy "Survival Guide" from writer and director Ben Fritz, but as an adult this movie was simply just falling short of everything.

My rating of "Survival Guide" lands on a three out of ten stars. Watch this one if you are a young viewer, but you might want to skip out on it if you are an adult, trust me.
