BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
I hear what you say, "I am sure that you've already done a review on Jigsaw?", well, you would be right. This is actually a different Jigsaw, one from 2002 and one that definitely would have passed you by, for good reasons anyway... 'A group of art students working on their final project soon learn that putting a little of themselves into their work can be a bad thing.'
Now, how do I say this in the nicest possible way...? This film is bad - so bad you just kind of sit there, watching it in silence until someone walks past and you feel the need to justify that you know this film is bad.
Dad stands in the dining room and watches.
Me. "Look at just how great this camera work looks".
Dad. "It looks dreadful".
Me. "Oh it is, and no one has even died yet".
Half an hour later...
Dad. "Anyone die yet?".
Me. "Yep, but it's all off screen, so no gore".
Look at that great insight to my lazy Sunday afternoon, and my thought processed of this film that I shall explain now...
I don't want to say this is a car crash, as that is super mean, but I will say it's like a bumper car crash, as that would ease the blow of the crash and you would just bump off of each other. I also am trying to build a shit sandwich, but I find it hard to find good things to say about it - I kind of liked the concept of the story. It's a pretty original thought, and I don't think I have ever seen or heard of any film that does anything similar - so that's good.
I have questions about the characters... The characters are students and go away with a teacher to do stuff with a mannequin - I think I zoned out a bit at the beginning - which sounds a bit weird to start with. What is weirder, is that one girl is only served at the bar when she gets a bit of boob out, as she gets her age wrong and pretty much says she's twenty. That's all well and good, if not illegal, but she does not look twenty in anyway! None of the 'students' do, they look as old as the actual teacher - and the teacher is a creep. He gets drunk and high and makes a move on pretty much all the student females, going as far as, what, third base with one... Not cool.
I only liked two of the characters in this. One guy, no idea what his name is, Tod I think, because he was cute, and another, again, no idea on the name, because he was literally like a knock off character Matthew Lillard in almost any of his films, but mainly Stu in Scream. And I love Matthew Lillard so of course I liked him.
Damn, I have said more about this film than I thought I could have, impressive Meg. Overall, I shall not be watching this again, I will watch the other Jigsaw instead, hands down. I hate saying bad things about films, but with this one, I kind of could not help it... Sorry!
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
