Twice Dead Reviews
A family inherits a old mansion in a very seedy, dangerous part of L.A. and Punks donâ(TM)t take kindly to their invasion to their hideout. Unbeknown to them a famous actor from the 1930s committed suicide in the house also doesnâ(TM)t take kindly to their invasion. Now our lovable family has to fight a two fronted war by taking on dangerous gangs and a vengeful spirit.
This cheapo wanna be haunted house thriller has bad acting, a bad script, bad effects and to top it off it canâ(TM)t keep itâ(TM)s plot straight. The intentions of the spirit are never made clear. First it tries to kill off family members, then it protects them, then it wants to kill them again. This ghost is worse than a PMSing wife off her bipolar meds. What the fuck does it want!
What pisses me off even more is that I actually like a few of the cast members. It has the guy from the lovable B-movie âThe Brainâ? and the cutsy girl from âNight of the Creepsâ? as brother and sister. Even they canâ(TM)t bring this tired, cliche film up to speed.
"Twice Dead" has a cliche, confused plot with bad acting and poor gore effects. This twists are dumbfounding and worst of all its just completely forgettable. No Roger Coman B-movie charm for this dud. Thankfully it was included in a double feature DVD with an actual decent haunted house thriller in the form of âThe Evilâ? so I can just pretend this was a bonus. Not worth hunting down and I say pass this one on by.
Worth a look for fans of Whitlow, but also fairly forgettable.
Some good horror and a decent story make this a pretty good film.
And Todd Bridges shows up for a small role.
Jill Whitlow is a sexy lady.
