      steve d It's dumb but at least Katharine Isabelle had some time to shine. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review joel d Cheap Budget Movie with very bad graphics. Atleast moves fast. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Okay, this wasn't horrible. A black plague of sorts is killing off members of some random secluded town, around some time in the 1800s, the mayor is killed. The next mayor who is voted is apparently a warlock, he casts a really dumb spell as the apparent solution to the plague. All the manifestations of the plague are brought forth and create an Ogre of sorts that is in a random location and as long as it is not disturbed, it will come out once a year and kill off a sacrificial lamb. The warlock carries some cane of sorts around to cast spells and to choose the random person to be killed (later on we find out that anyone can be chosen). Also, to counter the plague, now everyone is immortal, but can't walk past some force field or it's instant death. What's nice about this film, is that it really helps to explain immortality. You can live forever, but you can still be killed off at anytime. Even God's. With that being said, fast forward to 2007 and a group of 20-somethings are hiking through the woods surrounding the town, two of them happen upon the town and before that, one of them who injured themselves by running like an idiot sprained his ankle after tripping over a decent sized stone. He opens the door to the Ogre's home, basically breaking the spell and making for the Ogre to now have free reign to kill at will. They claim the Ogre eats folks, but throughout the entire slasher film, all members of the body count are smashed to pieces, never eaten. The film is funny when the modern day folks meet the old folks and cross paths with the language barriers. The plot is okay I guess. It's better than something like the village. For once, it makes sense why the monster is a psychotic killer. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member A pretty average sci-fi Channel creature feature, offering up a pretty standard slice of entertainment for the hardcore fans.... those who enjoy those films will certainly find similar entertainment in this one.. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member So a group of teens find an 18th Century village in the middle of the forest that once a year offers up a sacrifice to a terrible CGI Ogre as payment for former Duke's Of Hazard/Smallville star John Schneider's Warlock ridding the town of a plague. That' about it really, people die in a torrent of dodgy CGI and people act badly. Schneider seems to be happy to ply his trade with films of this type since leaving Smallville, Katherine Isabelle who once had a promising career with the likes of 'Ginger Snaps' is probably thankful for the work these days. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Not too bad. watchable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
