I know it is April, and I'm still reviewing horror flicks. Deal with it! Ragman is horror 24/7 - 365 baby! The latest in my arsenal is a flick called All Saints Eve. The story begins, with a farmer, in the late 1700's, who puts a curse on a small village, just before he is executed. You see, there is this evil preacher that wants the farmer's land, so he and his congregation, decide to off the farmer and his family. That doesn't seem fair does it? Well the farmer will have the last laugh, beyond the grave, because of the curse he puts on the small town.
After the short interlude, in the beginning, the movie fast forwards to present day, to the site where the farmer was executed. The area is now the site of a haunted house, which is about to be demolished. This is the final Halloween, of the haunted house's existence, and wouldn't you guess, the last folks to enter, are going to get more than what they expected.
Seriously, this is a good movie, which kept me entertained throughout. The acting is pretty good, but the main thing that made the film for me, was the classic vibe it has. It is kind of a throw back to 80's horror. There is a fair amount of gore, but the storyline carries this one. It is also one of those flicks that keeps you guessing a bit. It is not your standard cookie cutter horror flick. Enjoy this one in October or in April, like I did.
Bottom Line: Crafty horror flick with a classic feel.
-Ragman is thinking he may stay out of haunted houses this coming October.
