Okay, in fairness the second friend fell in the second dumbest "fall" I've ever had to endure on screen first place goes to an opening scene in The Bat People , so perhaps he deserved it.
His acting really stood out for me and I hope to see him in more films. Also, Ciara Hanna Pernicious , who plays John's daughter, Dana whose primary role is delivering endless exposition , is as talented as she is stunning. I'm sure we'll see more of her too.

I had literally no idea as to what just happened. Was it all a dream? Did John imagine this entire thing in his head? Why were those other two college kids killed? What the fuck just happened? The ending bugged me so much that I begrudgingly wracked my brain on what Cohn might have been trying to convey. The closest I could come, after some debate, was that the monsters were a metaphor for death, and this entire movie was about John trying to fight it off, and eventually embrace it.
And herein lies the issue with themes and central ideas in a movie.
When done right, it's impactful, haunting. Instead we're force fed an unrelated story about a curse and given a giant middle finger as a reward. I can't even with this film. Skip it.
The Devil's Revenge
Seth Vermaaten. Wow very good review I think you saved me the time! I appreciate it! Daniel link.
Lol, you're welcome. I don't think even boobies could have saved this one. The film's score starts out well, but then tapers off to something you may hear playing at a Spirit Halloween store. We'll leave the absurd visual effects and grenade launcher madness for another time.

This film is such a mess that I'm struggling on where to start. I guess I'll start with William Shatner as he's no doubt the biggest attraction here. Unfortunately, the writing renders Shatner nothing more than a raving lunatic, that's a shit-bag to his son, with a minimal amount of screen time to boot. Although it was a joy to watch him shout "hallo-fuckin-ween" during one of his rants to John.
Jeri Ryan, another solid actor and a definite draw for me, plays Susan. However, instead of playing a strong female lead like she's known for, she's left spouting lines like "I just want my family to be a family," made even worse when coupled with the subpar acting of her castmate. Which brings me to Jason Brooks.

Brooks, who plays Susan's husband, John, is as appealing as a root canal. I've watched bad acting before. Sometimes bad acting can make a crappy film fun. But this? This is some old testament WTF. Brooks' acting is stiff, forced and mind-numbingly painful to watch.
Early on, John crashes his truck in a scene where the only thing worse than Brooks' acting is the actual "crash" itself. In Blake Snyder's book Save the Cat! This is key when creating relatable characters that we can emotionally invest in.
