Horror Case Files Verdict

This had a lot of potential, but it does drag after a hour. Once it overstays its welcome, you’re like “ok, I get”. Then to top it off, the ending just leaves you mad. You expect it to have a good conclusion, once it started to drag, but nope. I’m not sure if the writers, put them self into a corner, or they were thinking this would become a franchise and could continue where the story left off in the sequel. The plus side, it is entertaining for a good hour, the concept is interesting, and the Satan serial killer is fascinating. Even though the killer doesn’t speak one word, he has a lot of charisma and black humor to carry a good chunk of the film. I honestly think you could build a franchise around our masked serial killer. If you have Netlflix or $0.99 rental, it’s worth a peek.

Random Info I got from this File:
  • Another phrase for boobs is tender morsels
  • Always look at your kill from a distance to see if it’s the right angle
  • 20 points for killing an old guy
