Critic Reviews for Open Grave
The road to the finale is littered with dead bodies and red herrings, but Open Grave is more notable for its laid-back approach to storytelling than for its plot twists.
Where the story leads is so disappointing-and hackneyed-it makes the entire journey feel like an enormous waste of time.
The film's aura of mystery only works in the first 20 minutes or so, when it seems effortless; after that it feels like it's working very hard to keep the truth obscured, and in so doing just becomes a colorless slog.
The film doesn't break any new ground, and with a few tweaks, it could have packed a far greater punch.
Open Grave starts off well enough, but soon finds itself as lost and confused as its amnesiac characters.
Audience Reviews for Open Grave
The moment you wake up, the nightmare begins.
Good movie! "Open Grave" is a smart movie. Its well thought out narrative structure invites you to constantly try to solve the puzzle. This suspense is maintained all the way until the last ~20mins of the movie. The story and heavy atmosphere are supported by the superb acting and skilled cinematography. It is almost impossible to not get immersed in the movie's microcosm. There are also a few good scares and action sequences to easy the pacing and give your brain time to relax.
A man wakes up in a pit of dead bodies with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Fleeing the scene, he breaks into a nearby house and is met at gunpoint by a group of terrified strangers, all suffering from memory loss. Suspicion gives way to violence as the group starts to piece together clues about their identities, but when they uncover a threat that's more vicious - and hungry - than each other, they are forced to figure out what brought them all together - before it's too late.
loved the grave scenes, has some cool elements and great actors... its pretty interesting, just felt like it could have had a little more to it. still cool tho
