BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
Don't Kill It is one of those films that you feel like you've never heard of, and you came across it completely by accident, only to find that it seems kind of familiar and you think you have seen it. "An aging demon hunter teams up with an FBI agent to defeat a supernatural menace that's terrorizing a small town in Mississippi. There's just one catch: The malevolent entity has the ability to possess the person that kills it."
I started watching it earlier on in the day, but had to go to work, fast forward to the evening and trying to watch something with Father, I mentioned this film and he was up for it - did I mind watching the beginning of this film again? Not at all! This film has one of those beginnings that pulls you in, as soon as I saw the gun and the guts and the blood, I was fully into it. Even the camera angles were great, some of them just swung around the room Matrix style.
Into the actual film we go, and I have to say, Dolph Lundgren looks great, he's sixty and he definitely doesn't have the body of one.
One thing I really loved about this film, was the fact that Dolph Lundgren is the hero, obviously, (he plays the silent but mysterious and deadly stranger very well), and what do most heroes do? Smoke. But wait, this was made and released in 2016, you can't smoke indoors nowadays and Dolph's character tends to smoke indoors in this film, keeping in character. Ah, he doesn't smoke, he vapes. VAPES. Yes, vapes. Best decision ever. Only thing though, I found myself watching the film wondering what flavour it is, maybe apple pie?
Don't Kill It is a simple movie with a clever title, obviously it's pretty much a massive clue on the monster in the film, simple but something that was a great little touch. It's also a very entertaining movie, it's gory and does have some funny moments, but it's also not the best made film. The acting isn't the best and the effects aren't all that to most, (I loved the effects as they were that really OTT gore that you laugh at, gore that makes my night), most being people who want class killings that look real. This film is not for you if that is what you want - well, you might still enjoy it, but just be warned, you will laugh, one scene even involves a lady being killed, only the lady is switched at the last moment for what looks like a blow up doll, and that is killed instead. It's a laugh, it's a film that can take the mickey out of itself and it does it, it does it very well actually. I liked it, a lot actually.
One thing about this film is that I feel people will judge it, for one, it's a fairly unknown horror film, and unless you're a big budget, maybe award winner who is tackling hard subjects, people probably will not take you seriously, and the other, is, and I feel bad saying this, Dolph Lundgren. He hasn't really done the best films and such now, has he, in recent times anyway, I for one like the guy, and I don't think he did a bad job at all in this film. It's a horror film and it stars an actor who is not known for his blockbusters, something that might make people turn it off - that's wrong, don't. Give this a chance, it might not change you'll life, but you'll have a great time, and who doesn't want that?!
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
