  • If the ineffectiveness knob goes up to ten, this film manages to turn it up to you-know-what.

  • If only "11-11-11" had arrived a little closer to Thanksgiving - the turkey connection would have been entirely appropriate.

  • One and one (and one and one and one and one) never quite add up to two.

  • Despite a good lead performance and a few cool ideas, 11-11-11 is also packed with a lot of airy chit-chat that either repeats established ideas or simply goes nowhere.

    I'm partial and a half to director Darren Lynn Bousman, Repo! The Genetic Opera and The Devil's Carnival are two of my favourite group-watching experiences, his work in the Saw franchise totally worked for me, his entries II & IV are two of my favourites in the series. and he's very committed to the horror genre which I hold dear to my heart. But 11-11-11 is crap. There are actually a couple of moments I really liked. There's some crazy practical effects and some awesome lighting, and even some genuinely creepy shots, but those are the sort of things that make a good film better, not a bad film good. The story overall is disjointed, but even watching individual scenes unfold is confusing and unbelievable. Lead character Joseph seems to forget the life-saving act he was engaged in in one room the second that he enters the next. And these aren't even the largest of the films problems. But hey, at least it's better than 11/11/11.

    11-11-11 was a complete waste of time! The film had so much potential with its intriguing premise, but just didn't run with the possibilities. Had no moments of terror and the pace was sluggish. 11-11-11 could of and should of been so much more impressive than the failed attempt it was. I'd even prefer the generic, direct to DVD 11/11/11 to this film, because at least that one has some entertaining moments. The performances were just dull to me and just didn't pull me in. None of the characters were likable or well developed, so the film didn't give me a chance to care about them. No connection here. The atmosphere could of been very creepy, but during those so-called scenes, the film was too darkly lit that you could barely see what was going on. The demons/creatures seemed creepy, but you could barely see them as well. The filming technique was extremely skittish and choppy, as if the filmmakers were rushing through the movie to get it done on time or something. The film as a result was a complete mess. It's a shame, because the director does have talent. Darren Lynn Bousman made solid horror films in the past, like the only good Saw film Saw 3, Mother's Day, Repo: The Genetic Opera to name a few. I think having the film be rated PG-13, was also a mistake. They were limited on what they could do with the premise. The film was already problematic, at least give us great gore scenes or some good jolts. Lackluster on all counts. Overall, there was no redeeming factor in 11-11-11 to make it worth anyone's precious time. The film doesn't need to exist, but only to know what not to do. It should be called Z-Z-Z, goodnight. Not recommended in the slightest!

    <i>"What does it say about me that I find it much easier to believe in the Devil than I do in God?"</i> After the death of his wife and child, an author travels to Barcelona to see his estranged brother and dying father, where he learns that his life is plagued by events that occur on 11/11/11. <center><font size=+2 face="Century Schoolbook"><b><u>REVIEW</u></b></font></center> You may or may not have bought into the false advertising campaign that is targeting young horror fans who think that they are going to see some apocalyptic event that occurs on the 11-11-11. If you are part of this target group, I am telling you now that you will most certainly be disappointed. This film is a slow-paced, methodical character-driven piece about the conflict between faith-based ideologies. Don't be tricked into thinking that this is going to be some exciting or thrilling popcorn adventure in the same vein as some of the other high budget apocalyptic films out there. Director Darren Lynn Bousman has himself said that he wanted to explore his own spiritual beliefs and conceptions about existence through this film. Due to its misleading nature, I feel that many people are going to rightfully flame this film in general. In my opinion it would have served better as a psychological drama about the descent of a rational man into madness. The twist would have been Joseph's self-realization that 11-11-11 has no meaning and it is just another number. Unfortunately the film favors a more unrealistic and perplexing ending that wasn't needed. There are however some redeemable qualities to the film such as the philosophical themes surrounding religion vs. society and also the talent of Timothy Gibbs to carry the film until the end despite many major flaws. I recommend that you watch this when it comes out on DVD so you can make up your own mind but I suggest that you consider the limitations of the budget (which couldn't have been more than $2 million).
