      Audience Member The acting is absolutely awful for the most part, and you are willing the annoying characters to be killed off in more horrific ways than they sadly are. The premise of killer Hansel & Gretel is a great idea. Let's hope someone pulls this off well in the future. What was the "Mummy" crap at the end?! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member "Bread Crumbs" is a 2011 horror that goes for broke in an attempt to combine a disturbing horror plot with a classic, often overlooked, disturbing didactic, fairytale of two children left tend to the elements, deep in the woods. "Bread Crumbs" is directed by Mike Nichols and stars Kristina Klebe, Dan Shaked, Marianne Hagan, Zoe Sloane, Alana Curry, Douglas Nyback, Shira Weitz, Steve Carey, and Mike Nichols. The plot follows a porn crew and cast into the woods to shoot a movie. Unfortunately there is a twisted brother, sister duo using the area as their personal killing field. The story is pretty cool with a basic principle of setting the characters up for a kill scene which for the most part work without seeming contrived. The drama and action begin almost instantly and manage to keep a steady, straight forward pace through most of the movie without becoming exhausting. The porn set concept brings plenty of flesh to the screen but in the most censored, conservative manner. Nothing really explicit here (by my standards anyway). However, it is obvious that entwining the "Hansel & Gretel" aspect to the story is very much contrived, playing out more like a bit of stretched, nonsensical moments of weak dialog meant to bring the viewer to the breadcrumbs "table". Still the kids are so d*mn dark and disturbing that it manages to pull off a good concept in a, "middle-of-the-road, mediocre way, but it does get there. The soundtrack and special effects in "Bread Crumbs" really make the film enjoyable for me personally. I can forgive weak dialog, loose story arcs" as long as the effects and sound track hold me to the story and drama unfolding on screen. Nichols does a pretty good job tying it all in to make a fun, standard horror mythos in "Bread Crumbs" with eerie sounds, and a strong attention to practical effects and blood consistency. The film doesn't give us a new look at horror or bring something extraordinary to the genre but it is an entertaining, modern classic that stays true to the roots of the genre. It gave me that 80's feel that I only get with a certain type of horror movie story, I dug the homicidal brother and sister and the unfinished ending is beyond retro! (That is a good thing cause retro is candy for me!) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member How Not To Make A Horror Movie 101: presented so cack-handedly it's not even funny Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Confusing and rather ridiculous, this doesn't really shed any type of interest other than the occasional neat kill. The characters are terrible from the start and the conflict between them is boring. Decent amount of blood and scares, but there's nothing very memorable. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Creepy enough with its sadistic child-killers who are fantastically emotionless in their macabre demeanor, however the film fails to engage the viewer in what is clearly a low-budget horror. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member This was a different take on a slasher. I gave it four stars bc it stood out for me as being different and actually kept my focus without me laughing out loud at the ridiculous acting or special effects. The kids in the woods are creepy and the movie gives you a good twist. Some of the cast could use some extra acting lessons even though it fit considering they were supposed to be porn actors. I think horror fans will appreciate this B-movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews
