Halloween Horrors 2012 #16 DEAD EYES OPEN
Anyone left? OK then, here we go.
There is dialog, but you won't care...there are characters doing stuff, but you probably will zone out and wait for the gore. I have to say this however, Mollenhoff definitely was looking for a "style" here using his Super 8 cameras, and I actually thought some of the editing and processing was nifty in a weird way. It works once in every ten stylistic tries, but that isn't a bad track record all things considered. There isn't much else to recommend. But wait, there is more to discuss.
Who is this movie for? The ZOMBIPHILE that must see everything will endure. The German Splatter heads will survive. All others shall fall with good reason before the drab finale--but I made it through and I know many who could. It tries, but...well...I guess I have to admire the crew behind this for getting world wide distribution for their oddball film!
DEAD EYES OPEN is sort of like that one person that goes down on you that wasn't particularly good at what they were working with, but did it a bit different. You'll remember it for a bit, but won't want it again for fear your genitals will end up damaged!
