Critic Reviews for Long Time Dead
It's cliché, it's predictable and nothing new, but hell it's fun, it's entertaining, and it's creepy.
The suspense level is held taut and the bloody payoffs are quite good... Unfortunately, the plot can't sustain itself and boredom sets in
Whatever about warning kids about the dangers of ouija boards, someone should dispense the same advice to film directors.
Audience Reviews for Long Time Dead
This is very of the times, young pretty people being killed off one by one while they scramble to figure out who dun it and how to stop them before they all die but with a neat little djinn story. And actually I dig it, even now as an adult.
Horror movies like this one really drive me crazy, because it sounds good, the previews are great, and when you sit down to watch it you find that the characters are so unbelievably stupid, that the film has no credibility what-so-ever. What happens when eight friends at a party get tired of drinking? Just like anyone else, they wind up going into a store room and using a Ouija board to contact the dead. In their ignorance, they forget to close the portal to the other side, and a demon escapes intent on hunting them all down. Las Vegas's Marsha Thomason stars and pretends to be some kind of spiritual expert, when in reality she doesn't know shit. She is this whiny, annoying, know-it-all who I couldn't wait to see get her head chopped off. The rest of the cast isn't much better, as most of them just blindly follow her lead. To avoid this demon's rage, what do they all decide to do? Stick together in an old house, a good idea, but of course they can't stay together in a room forever, and that's when the demon starts picking them off one by one, in textbook slasher fashion. When you have a ridiculous story, combined with no background information, and a cast of characters that makes the cast of Duck Dynasty seem smart, what you get is a film that is beyond terrible. If there was some humor or even a break from the main story, maybe parts of Long Time Dead wouldn't have been so bad, but this film is pure garbage from the drunken night out to the bloody end.
Not the worst horror certainly not the best! Music built up the tension but often fizzled out at the end!
