Lost After Dark: Blu-ray Review











The Movie:

Spring Ball, 1984.  Adrienne (Kendra Leigh Timmins), a straight-A student, joins her quarterback crush Sean (Justin Kelly) and some friends in sneaking out of their high school dance for some unsupervised mayhem.  The teens’ party plans hit a snag when they run out of gas on a deserted road.  They head out on foot and discover a rundown farmhouse where they hope to find help.  Instead they find themselves at the mercy of Junior Joad (Mark Wiebe), a cannibal killer from an urban legend. After the brutal murder of one of their friends, the group’s quest for help becomes one of survival. Will anyone survive the night?

I’m just going to come right out and say that this film is really only for the lovers of horror and slasher films. It takes everything that we’ve seen in horror films and wraps it up together with a little bow. People may look at this film as a ripoff but I like to look at it more like an homage. Sure it is cheesy in spots but that’s what it’s supposed to be. The acting in the film was actually decent compared to other low budget horror films which made it a lot more enjoyable. The look of the film was created perfectly. It looks like it was shot back in 80’s…..but in HD. I will say that the killer could’ve been a little bit more interesting. It just kind of seemed like they took all the iconic slashers and mushed them together. A killer with a bit more originality would made this film top notch. In the end I had plenty of fun watching this movie surprisingly and would recommend it to any of my fellow horror lovers. 6/10
