"He Never Hurt A Soul Until The Day He Died.
"A pack of teenagers run for their lives through the swamps of Louisiana, as they are chased by Mr. Jangles, a man possessed by 13 evil souls who is relentless in his pursuit of new victims.
blood, guts and gore galore
I saw this movie at a screening as well and it must have been a
different version than the reviewer who thought it was "pure $hite".
While the acting for the most part is typical teenager and a little
disappointing except for the bad guy, the film looks fantastic, the
actions sequences are great as well as the kills, some of which were
hard to watch due to their realism. In this version at least, the
cheesy special effects seem to be gone or at least vastly improved from
what the other reviewer saw. It moves pretty well except for a few
scenes of obligatory explanations regarding the voodoo deal and "teen
angst", but there are a couple of really good scares as well as a good
sustained overall tension throughout. The kills are brutal for the most
part with one exception thats kind of lame, but the fight sequence
close to the end is especially effective and looks just great as well
as what has to be some new scenes, possibly even a new ending, since
the lighting and overall look is so different from the rest of the
film, but it still looks great. In my humble opinion it's definitely
worth seeing and an R rating based on the blood and gore if thats what
you expect from a horror movie. Gillespie definitely knows how to make
an audience squirm.
