I found myself drifting in and out wondering why even in the midst of gore, I was still so bored out of my mind...
Clarity would have made this movie a whole lot better
... this movie grabs you by the throat and never lets go.
The director's got a genuine love for horror & you can tell he's trying with his limited resources & experience to make a film that relied more on atmosphere than gory kills.
It was ok...not the best zombie flick out there.
A few tense and/or creepy moments but otherwise a lackluster killer kids movie with a typical and unsatisfying ending.
Frustratingly average "village with a secret" horror film, with a confused and predictable plot trajectory, precious few scares, and an ending I've now seen in at least half a dozen other films. The very low budget shows - characters are bludgeoned with tree limbs bloodlessly and unconvincingly - with what looks like a good percentage of the money going on a, actually quite decent, CGI assisted death by cheese wire. The acting, with the exception of Josslyn DeCrosta, is astonishingly bad and the script certainly doesn't help matters. But even with more money thrown at the project and some star power, Plague Town only has a couple of truly original ideas, which are unfortunately not expanded upon in any meaningful way. Though the directors and DeCrosta show some promise, there's very little here that is interesting or new, meaning this is just another run-of-the-mill deformed-people-in-the-woods flicks, heading to a bargain bin near you.
This is pretty incredible for a low budget feature. At the conclusion of this film, I definitely decided that this is one fictional horror town I NEVER want to end up in; I'd rather face Leatherface to be honest.
Now the downers. The acting is at best lukewarm. The makeup varies in effectiveness from "you need to reapply that" to "okay that's acceptable for an amateur"; in a few wide shots, it is clear that the production couldn't afford/bother to makeup the antagonistic children. The effects crew seems to do much better with the blood, keeping coloring and flow pretty consistently good. The characters often make questionable decisions, but what is this genre without such idiocy on part of the characters?
You can feel that these people are truly stranded and surrounded. The town, once revealed, is just as eerie and backwards as you would expect. The girls' ritual performed on the surviving Brit is quite satisfyingly sick.
This is one of the better indie efforts I've seen in a long time and I wouldn't be surprised to see a large budget American remake in the pipeline.
