Hacking self in neck with a hatchet.
Chair speared through body.
Hand pump from well spigot goes in through the front and out the back.
Steal policeman’s gun to kill self, oh and policeman.
Guy has arm peeled away by monster and when he runs away he decapitates himself (A LOL moment for me)
There are a few other quality kills, but I can’t spoil the whole movie. The movie was suspenseful and I was happy that there were no drawn out slow walks up to a curtain only to have a cat jump out. Nor someone sneaking up very slowly and putting their hand on someone’s shoulder which is supposed to scare the audience. If a hand went on a shoulder it was probably Anna Whaley (Maria Olsen http://wp.me/p2eH5w-7z ) and if she put her hand on you it would be painful and result in eyes, nose and mouth bleeding. Damnit, I spoiled another quality kill.
Jose Prendes has plenty to be proud of with this film. He wrote a great script, did an excellent job directing and he must have been very happy with Abby. The movie grabbed my attention from the beginning when we were given an accurate history about the Whaley house.
The house alone scared the crap out of me, it’s an old historic house and when I saw the inside I got chills and swear I smelled an adult undergarment which reminded me of my “stuck in the 60’s” aunt’s house. Not a nice visual I’m sorry and to make up for it I’ll share a little secret with you about the movie. Thirty minutes in is the gratuitous topless scene. There you happy? Speaking of that scene, it was the only moment of the movie I thought was a little farfetched. What happens is Bobo (Alfred Rubin Thompson) is with his girl Candy (Mindy Robinson) and Bobo is calling for his dog and Candy is trying to entice him by taking her top down. He continues looking for his cat (not dog like I said originally, thanks Jose!)…he continues looking for his cat??? HE SERIOUSLY CONTINUED LOOKING FOR HIS CAT!!!!!!!! No offense Bobo, but you got what you deserved.
Other than that the movie provided some comedic relief with the group joking around at the beginning and a couple moments may not have been meant to be comedic but my sick sense of humor had me giggling a little. One being Ray (Jason Owsley) goes off on the ghosts and it may have been the first time I heard someone tell a ghost to “suck my d__k”. Another not funny but was to me was after a chair is used for the kill. You see it several times and the chair is upright just asking to be sat in. I also love how one time between scenes we got the classic outside shot of the house and a dog barking in the distance.
Overall the movie is fun, scary, and suspenseful and can easily be watched again when you’re in the mood for a midnight horror flick. Great job by the cast and crew and thanks again Maria for scaring us!
