A Pain To Watch

In rural Alabama, two couples find themselves in a fight for survival. Running from a maniac (The Tin Man) bent on killing them, they flee deep into the woods and seek refuge in a house. They soon realize the killer has purposely lured them to this house and that they are now trapped.

The best thing about this film? An incredible genre cast: Michael Madsen, Leslie Easterbrook, Bill Moseley, Lew Temple and even Lance Henriksen. Director Robby Henson's work has also attracted such acclaimed actors Billy Bob Thornton, Patricia Arquette, Patricia Clarkson, Chris Cooper, William DeVane and Kris Kristofferson. This is not one of the better films, though.

We have terrible acting (especially from the country-singing wife), awful direction, and cinematography that seems obsessed with blue /green coloration for no reason. Moseley plays his usual self, and audiences are getting sick of it.

Although it is hard to say for sure, one assumes the novel by Frank E. Peretti and Ted Dekker has to be better than the film it became. The novel is apparently Christian fiction, though it seems odd with such lines as, "God came to my house and I killed him."

Decent but still heavily flawed

Getting stranded at a remote, vacant hotel in the woods, two couples find themselves beset by a deranged killer who forces them to confront their inner-most demons buried within them in order to get out alive.

This is an overall quite troubling effort as this really could've been something quite decent but is too heavily flawed to rise above. The biggest issue here is that this one is just way too overall clich├ęd and familiar to scores of other films where people find themselves trapped at a house or shack in the middle of nowhere that's not what it initially seems at all, and that familiarity makes for this one to simply run through the motions of hitting every single general plot-point without fail. There's the initial meeting with the family that shows them off as general creeps, the scramble throughout the house to secure weapons once the killer arrives and then the play-out with each one forced to confront something troubling from their past which is the main genesis of the film rather than the killers' stalking scenes which are quite problematic since this really only makes a specific point within the film come to pass. If none of these actions that are presented as the most horrific memories and events in their lifetime mean nothing or are not that scary at all, then the film as a whole is just utterly bland and boring during these sequences which is what's presented here. Only one of these events is really all that terrifying and worthy of being that kind of unrelenting psychological torment yet even that is dutifully hindered by the film's Christian morality that comes into play in the final half which is just so problematic that there's almost nothing at all to praise in these scenes. It's all so bland and boring that there's almost a negative impact taken here from the few scares that do occur here which is what's the most troubling part of all this. Those middle scares, especially the frantic search around the house to locate weapons that soon turns into the different torments that are undertaken which comes out of nowhere as this was set-up quite nicely with the human killer in a dark, decrepit house, yet there's a lot to like with these scenes that gets taken away by the unneeded Christian morality that utterly destroys a lot of that.

Rated R: Language, Violence and themes of child molestation.

Another example of Good Book-Bad Movie

I have read the book. It is a really good book, not a religious book, it has a great story that give you the chills and at the same time gives you a beautiful perspective of Gods love and forgiveness. But I just saw this movie and, as always, the book is better. I didn't like this movie, it has a good choice of cast but really bad acting, bad way of telling the story, everything happen to fast and without any explication, and bad effects. M. Madsen does what he does well, being the same character on Kill Bill or Reservoir Dogs... My advice? read the book first. Because if you watch the movie first, you will never read the book, because of how bad this movie is. P.S: The book is awesome.
