The Legend of Black Annie: Not as bad as you'd assume
This independent horror effort is so obscure that at time of writing I'm now only the 26th person on IMDB to have even seen it six years later!.
It tells the story of a town with a grave secret. A tragedy took place and many high ranking folks within the community covered it up, but it doesn't want to stay buried!
Sound familiar? That's because it's been done before, many many times. Thankfully though it's not exactly done well, it's not entirely without merit.
It plods along swaying from side to side like a drunkard, it has ropey cinematography and is anything but original yet just about manages to keep its head above the water.
The script is fairly decent, if the film kept focus and had better structure that alone might have led it to a far higher rating.
Now apparently the budget was 175,000 dollars! I thought as I was watching it they were doing a good job to disguise the lack of funds but upon finding that out it raises all kinds of questions. Maybe production had really good catering?
The Legend Of Black Annie isn't a good film by any means, but it isn't as bad as the IMDB rating would suggest.
Script is better than you'd imagine
SFX are quite decent in places
Some awful light effects
Plot trails off
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
White nighties are immune to blood stains
The writer is familiar with Bloody Mary
