This slash thriller directed by Alex Merkin nd written by Eddie Harris has an impressive cast with Terrence Howard, Queen Latifah and Peter Fonda, but even they could not save it! In 1 hour and 18 minutes you will satisfy an appetite for the grim and gruesome (if you have one) but in very sub-standard environment and execution. Annoying music, boring story which is happening in a house where a serial killer once lived, terrible acting by most of the younger actors, lazy by the book directing... I am not sure where to start and when to stop naming all the sluggish elements of this movie!
Stay away from it. Nothing there could enrich your life in any way!
How can a movie with such big names attached - Fonda, Queen Latifah, Howard - be such a dud? This slasher / serial killer movie just has no power. It crawls along with killings taking place in the former home of a serial killer that is now used for re-enacting those murders by co-eds. Imagine that! Nothing imaginative and the twist is really lame. I did like Alexz Johnson though.
The kid ate a cigarette.
A series of gruesome murders at a dormitory led to a known criminal being arrested and tried for murder. The killer doesn't seem to want to hide his actions too much. A detective integrates the arrogant criminal and pries the grizzly details out of him on the events that led to nine college students losing their lives.
"You can't control your kid. Somebody is going to fuck her."
Alex Merkin, director of Across the Hall, Percentage, and episodes of Girls' Guide to Depravity, delivery House of Bodies. The storyline for this picture was just okay and kind of a cliché slasher flick with a pretty clever ending. The characters were okay and the cast delivers better than I anticipated performances. The cast includes Terrence Howard, Queen Latifah, Peter Fonda, George Katt, Alexz Johnson, Juliana Harkavy, Karlee Eldridge, and Tim Ware.
"You know me, I like to come home and work on my relationship with the DVR."
I grabbed this off Netflix because I was surprised at the better than average cast on such a mediocre sounding film. Unfortunately, this is a below average, straight forward, horror flick with little going for it. This is worth watching once, if you're a fan of the genre, but I wouldn't go too far out of my way to see this picture.
"You didn't kill any of them."
