      Audience Member Don't waste your time. Plenty of potentially interesting characters and ideas that go absolutely nowhere. Like the title, this undercooked piece of meat should be sent back to the kitchen. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member I liked it. Horror movie acting, but great story. Watched on showtime extreme. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Directed by Andrew Cymek "Medium Raw" has a very in depth synopsis with multiple stories playing out centering around a serial killer and his connection to the other cast of characters in this action/horror flick. A rookie cop catches a notorious serial killer known as "The Wolf" who killed his sister when he was a child and left him scarred. While seeing the killer to his new digs at Parker's Asylum officer Johnny Morgan and a small group of others find them selves in a twisted battle for survival when pandemonium ensues bringing them face to face with some of the worlds sickest killers. The film stars William Davis, John Rhys Daves, Brigette Kingsley, Mercedes McNab, Jay Reso, Kristina Miller and Andrew Cymek. "Medium Raw: Night Of The Wolf" has some really cool elements and some very bad ones. The things that I enjoyed about this film most were eclectic group of serial killers locked within the asylum and the fact that it happens on the eve of the Christmas holiday. There was a big flirtation with the Little Red Riding Hood fairytale between "The Wolf" and a small child that really should not have been in the facility to begin with. For me the most exciting thing about this film was the "smack down" concept as the killers are released from their cells forcing the people trapped inside to fight or flee in order to survive. The best character in "Medium Raw" was Mabel Hannibal. A crazy woman who was captured and locked away for killing and cooking people. If Hell has a chef then Mabel Hannibal is that chef. The few things that fell flat for me in this blended plot structured action/horror flick are simple and only minor irritations at best. First Andrew Cymek's direction and vision for this story was awesome but his portrayal of Johnny Morgan came of a little more comical than I think it was intended. The second thing that seemed to take way from the story was the under utilization of the twisted and dark doctor of Parker's Asylum. William Davis as a sinister figure is commanding. He is evil incarnate on screen and I would have rather seen more of his character as well as the iron wolf suit than all the flashbacks to Johnny Morgan's past. "Medium Raw: Night Of The Wolf" has a lot of good qualities to entertain. The gore and blood is there and great quality effects. The acting for the most part was believable and the haunting air of the Christmas holiday gave an added darkness to the film that I loved. The soundtrack played out perfect with the scenes and helped to bring the emotion outward. The asylum could have had a stronger story with more face time for the other killers but oh well. The fact is "Medium Raw" gives us a holiday gathering that only Hell could conjure. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review don s Loads of blood and gore, especially for a TV movie, in this horror movie where serial killers are sentenced to an asylum for the criminally insane. There are several different kinds of serial killers shown here, and they all get a little time in the spotlight when the power goes off and their cells unlock. The acting is only fair, but I found this quite watchable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The film has a lot of shortcomings, not being very interesting is one of them, poor acting another. I will give it points for trying though. It's also good to see William B. Davis is still alive and kicking. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member The wooden acting and odd alternate-universe, meets horror, meets Comic book qualities makes this movie a complete flop. It doesn't seem to know what it should be. And again, the C rating acting is distracting. Combine that with the incredibly staged production design, costume design and direction, it makes for an incredibly lame movie that was doomed from the get go. Poor casting, poor direction are it's major faults. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
