Movie review: (horror) “The Reeds” (2009)

December 13, 2010 at 8:10 pm (horror, movies)

  This movie really bummed me out, because it could have been so much better than it was. It was well-filmed. The setting was wonderfully creepy. The acting was good, even though the characterization was pretty weak. There were some moments of genuine spookiness. But the script was just a mess.

The sad thing is, this storyline could have been pulled off beautifully. It’s not new, but it’s a classic. Instead it just got muddier and muddier (pun intented) until I didn’t really give a damn what was going on.

I gave it three stars because I did enjoy, um, looking at it. But this is the kind of movie that drives me absolutely crazy–the kind that should have been wonderful, but just isn’t.

-Rated R
-3 out of 5 stars
-Probably OK for older teens, but they may get bored
