I'm not a big fan of Jesse Metcalfe and think his main role could have been carried better by someone else.. but the quirky main supporting cast is probably the best part of the movie.. Peter Stormare proves again he has got the skeezy 'misunderstood' evil character on lockdown.. no matter how often he's a horrible human being in movies, there is always a part you want to side with and root for.. other pluses are Kevin Sussman, Olivia Munn, Carla Gallo (Bones) and Armin Shimerman (Buffy the Vampire Slayer).
i like it
Probably one of the worst zombie movies ive ever watched.
The whole story fails to impress is just not worth the watch.
People are probably going to end up asking what I think horror truly is. Horror is the feeling of dread and despair upon the mind. Brian de Palma perfected this in the film, Carrie, which portrayed the horror of the mind. Psychological horror is what I want to see in film, but often this is never the case. See, of course, in a world where people would much rather see people getting killed far worse than the poor soul in 2 Guys 1 Hammer, this isn't the case and we're given shit like Insanitarium. The plot? What is the plot really? It's just some dipshit voluntarily leaving himself a captive of a manical doctor who tries too hard to be Doctor Moreau. It's like seeing Lady Bjorkdonna, I mean Gaga, trying to convince people she's actually a musician of credible worth. But, then again, that's what Hollywood horror does on a daily basis.
If you want to see why horror is as dead as grunge rock, then see this film. If you want "horror" films that are actually meaningful, see films such as Carrie and the works of Hitchcock (proto-horror films, if you will, these are), Vincent Price, and so forth. These that I just mentioned are basically the only "horror" films ever to have existed. I could recommend the slasher films, but, really, slasher films only twist the "horror of the mind" into cheap gut-a-girl porn. This poor sod of a genre's even more irrelevant to serious moviegoers than MTV and rap are to music.
