If you’re like me, when you saw the trailer for this movie, the first thing that went through your head is: Hunger Games rip off. It’s not quite the same, but a similar concept.
I’ll rate this movie a 3 out 5. If you like blood shed, zombies, and other things that are meant to be frightening but are not, this movie is for you.
I really wasn’t a fan of the movie. The concept was just silly, I was not able to relate to the characters, and the ending was disappointing. If you liked the Scary Movie movies, you’ll probably enjoy this…to some extent.
In a movie where you cheer when most people die and are not at all disappointed or upset when absolutely everyone dies….well…there’s really not much to say about it. The reason I gave this movie a 3 and not a 1 or a 2 is because it was mildly entertaining–but once again, in the Scary Movie sense. There’s enough gore to keep you going, enough freaky things to keep you interested, but this is not a movie that will keep you up all night or have you checking under your bed for monsters.
The final word here is: you do NOT need to watch this movie before you die. You are not missing anything. If you DO feel bored one night and are in the mood for mindless bloodshed, bust out this dvd. Don’t take a trip to the theater.
