"I was in The motherf**king Wire!" I imagine that thought was running through the head of Paul Ben-Victor as he grouched his way through The Super.
Even bad horror movies can have their pleasures, and here it's Kilmer who gives "The Super" a kick.
It offers a few decent scares as well as the opportunity for Val Kilmer to once again display his unique brand of screen charisma.
How surprising the story's twist ending turns out to be depends on how thoroughly steeped in horror moves the viewer is, but it's well executed down to small details.
The Super has the occasional moment of great horror filmmaking - but not enough to make it a super film.
It's not without its charms and you could certainly do worse, but don't expect too much from The Super.
... more tedious than compelling, although Val Kilmer's scenery chewing provides some modest amusement.
"The Super" has spent a little too much time in the editing room, emerging as an overly managed chiller that's not particularly scary. Mostly bewildering.
There are a number of familiar horror tropes here but they intersect in ways you might not expect; it's a rare genre film that successfully surprises its audience, but this one has the potential to do so.
Val Kilmer returns to the screen in The Super, a horror-mystery-thriller set in a high-rise New York apartment building.
