The 8th Plague (2006)
USA / English
"The Writing is on the Wall...
"The 8th Plague is the story of a woman named Launa who is investigating the disappearance of her sister...
A bunch of kids go into a prison to find a missing person and meet up
with some funky demonic evil. Simple enough plot. I caught this thing
in the theater a couple weeks ago. It was a midnight showing and I
wasn't doing much so I figured "what the heck". It started out a little
slow, but once it got going, it really kicked into gear.
I'm a big time horror buff, and I've been watching a lot of low budget
horror flicks lately... Mostly they leave me feeling irritated. I've
gotta say, this one was kind of a breath of fresh air from all the
other B-flicks I've seen. It really gives you the goods; from blood
explosions to guts to unexplainable, yet very enjoyable prison sex. The
acting was surprisingly good for a B horror flick... for the most part.
The main girl was awesome, especially after showering in demonic blood
I was especially impressed that they were able to do what they did with
so little relative money. The set design and a lot of the camera work
didn't strike me as being uber-low budget.
The Gore FX and makeup were really cool too, look out for the eye
scene! The theater was only about half full when I saw this, and when a
couple of the gore moments pop up there was definitely some giddy
applause from the crowd. I found myself joining in, cheering the gore
haven on the screen.
An academy award winner, No, but a good horror fix on a Saturday
night... perfect for any horror fan.
