Simon Says Reviews
January 3, 2013
A buddy and I get together and watch bad horror movies. Simon Says was selected because of Crispin Glover but I think I can state that this was the worst thing that he has ever done.

A fun B-movie. Crispin Glover tried too hard if you ask me. The pacing of this "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" clone is erratic, the flash-backs that try to set up exposition do little but throw off the groove that the movie tries to build up in the beginning. Expect some decent gore, disposable secondary characters, a dissapointing lack of boobs (Despite some obnoxious teasing!) and an uninspired 'twist' ending that you'll most assuredly see coming. Don't get attached to any of the characters.

A successful slasher. Simon Says stands out even though its formula is so overused.

Moron characters that you care about anyway a few minutes before they die, inventive kills, a high gory body count and a demented killer in the form of Crispin Glover.
THIS is how you make an entertaing slasher movie.

This movie is even creepier the third time you watch it. I think BECAUSE you know what's gonna happen, and the first couple of times, you're just kinda overwhelmed by the sheer brutality of it. TRULY twisted.

Simon Says starts off really shaky and I almost considered turning it off... but then a stoner character picks up a guitar and starts singing "let the fun begin, let the fun begin" as a girl goes off into the wilderness alone. I thought that was a nice nod to the audience and from there on the movie does get fun. It's basically a tongue in cheek backwoods hick horror... think Wrong Turn and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It's the usual fodder with a group of teens camping in the hills and being picked off one-by-one. Crispin Glover is the one doin' all the killing and for me this was the clincher. I love him. He's such an eccentric and outlandish actor and this movie allows him to parade a variety of characters in one. He plays a set of twins who murdered their parents (his real father Bruce Glover) when they were teenagers and they've lived in the woods ever since. It's not a great movie but for its genre, its hell fun. The gore is creative and very amusing and there's actually some stuff I've never seen before... most notably is a wicked poodle death. I've never seen so many pick-axes flying through the air at once and for that I give Simon Says my thumbs up!

Rubbish...Really, this movie needed to be made?? It can be thrown in the cupbaord with all the other 'teens go off and get killed' slasher movies. There is nothing interesting or original about this.
Did I use the FF button: yes
Gratuitous nudity 0/10 (I can't remember any and won't go back to look)
If I lost this movie I would: be thankful this stinking turd is out of the house

Crispin Clover deserves a much better role than this lame slasher flick!

As a whole the film has nothing new to offer the land of low budget horror movies. Crispin Glover was quite frankly bad in this film, I'm not really familiar with his prior roles but after this I can't say I'd expect anything over decent. Overall a rather watery plot but with all the flying axes and machetes this could have made a great over the top 3D movie!

It was your average scary movie revolving around five college friends that choose to spend their vacation debauching at the riverside. They find the perfect place to camp out, but end up crossing paths with twin brothers, Simon and Stanley (played by Crispin Glover). The twins start to kill the campers in some extremely creative & gruesome ways- hint you will see many pickaxes flying all over. Enjoy the splatter! Oh BTW its on Netflix streaming, otherwise I would not have rented it..

This movie is soooo insanely bad that it's one of my favorite movies of all time, It's not intended to be a comedy and that's what makes it so great, it may be the worst horror movie or movie of all time but that's what makes it so damn enjoyable, bundles of laughs, unintentional maybe but it worked fine for me

You actually don't care if they die or not, oblivious, doesn't make any sense whatsoever, but it did try to show some effort.

Chrispian Glover might actually be a decent actor, if he wasn't so hell bent on taking his weirdo charisma to the extreme. ''Simon Says'' even fails at being your typical slasher flick, because of it.
