Rush week turns unexpectedly hellish when a band of sadistic, masked, homicidal maniacs holed up in an abandoned warehouse wreak havoc on a bunch of not-so-innocent college kids.

Before viewing Hellweek I knew I was getting into a low budget horror film, but occasionally they bring fresh elements or have some redeeming values. Unfortunately Hellweek had none of those good qualities, but for the sake of the review I won’t let the feeling of having watched a terrible movie influence my review. It’s obvious that the budget was low for the movie, but keeping that in mind some of the effects and visuals weren’t too terrible. The acting however was atrocious, and really took away from all aspects of the film. Filled with corny 1 liners and actors trying to hard, the whole script felt really forced.

The gore factor was decent given their budget, but took a very long time to get into it and 30 minutes of build up could have been cut to about 5 minutes. Even when the action is happening I couldn’t look past the terrible acting and half the time I felt like I was watching a high school play with actors dressed up overdoing it. It is very hard to recommend this film to anyone, so consider yourself warned if you decide to give it a shot and feel like you wasted 100 minutes of your life.

Trick R Treat The Movie

Trick R Treat The Movie

It is said that Halloween is the night when the dead rise to walk among us and other unspeakable things roam free. Trick R Treat is four interwoven stories that occur on Halloween: An everyday high school principal has a secret life; a college virgin might have just met the one guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband.

There was a lot of hype around Trick R Treat since it won the Audience Award at 2008 Screamfest. The big question was did the movie live up to the hype? The simple answer is Yes it did. Trick R Treat does a great job intertwining the 4 stories and jumps between them while telling them. It gives the movie a non-linear feel and adds to some of the surprises I won’t spoil. There are no big name actors, but overall the acting was pretty solid.

The movie wasn’t too scary, but had a few scares throughout mixed in with some laughs. The best part was how the story was rolled out and some of the suspense trying to figure out what happened. The overall experience of the movie was enjoyable since none of the stories dragged on. I’d definitely recommend checking out the movie to all horror fans.

Ratings Explained

10-9 = Very few movies will get a 9 or 10 and it is reserved for great movies with very few flaws. The acting, direction, music, plot, and ending all have to be excellent.


8-7 = Most highly recommended movies will fall under this range. They will be enjoyable and get a positive recommendation. Some flaws in the film will keep it from getting a higher score, but definitely worth checking out.


6-5 = Films in this range have several flaws and may be entertaining, but lack most of the qualities that make films great. These are generally reserved for when you want to watch a film and don't have too many options.


4-3 = Anything in this range isn't very good, but has a few positives throughout to keep it from getting the lowest scores. Even though the score is low there is still a chance some people may like these.


2-1 = The bottom of the barrel, the only difference between 2 and 1 is that if I can finish the movie it automatically gets a 2, but if it is so terrible that I need to turn it off before it ends then it gets a 1.
