The Reeds
DVD
DIRECTOR: Nick Cohen
STARRING: Karl Ashman, Geoff Bell, Anna Brewster, Daniel Caltagirone, Emma Catherwood, Scarlett Alice Johnson, O.T. Fagbenle
Lionsgate Home Entertainment
RELEASE DATE: March 23, 2010

For four straight years now, After Dark Horrorfest: 8 Films to Die For has been unleashed. Eight original horror films to quench your thirst for blood and gore and screams galore. Last year I was able to check out and review their third collection of horrors (Read: DVD Review: After Dark Horrorfest III: 8 Films To Die For), and was rather excited to check out their new slate this year! Instead of cramming every review into one mammoth review, this year we’ll take it one flick at a time, with this little opener stuck at the top of each one.

The next title in our massive Horrorfest IV review collection comes out of the UK and is called The Reeds. The movie tells the story of a group of friends who set off on a little boat trip together. Things don’t get off to the best start when they discover the boat they had reserved is a mess and can’t be used, but their luck changes when they’re offered a special vessel called the Corsair Star. They find the boat swarming with a group of troublemaker kids, but once they get them to move away, the party begins with drinking and laughing and dancing and maybe some skinny dipping (no, not the good kind, guys).

Zombies of Mass Destruction
DVD
DIRECTOR: Kevin Hamedani
STARRING: Janette Armand, Doug Fahl, Cooper Hopkins, Bill Johns, Russell Hodgkinson
Lionsgate Home Entertainment

For the last of these 8 Films to Die For, I chose to save Zombies of Mass Destruction. The general idea of zombies — some form of infection spreading at a lightning pace and causing people to become animated corpses with an appetite for human flesh — is an almost fail proof one. The thought of everyone you know, everyone around you suddenly roaming the Earth in search of you and anyone like you to eat or infect is about as terrifying as it gets, and it pretty much writes itself from there. For these reasons, I assumed that this movie would be a guaranteed good time.

The Final

DIRECTOR: Joey Stewart
STARRING: Marc Donato, Jascha Washington, Whitney Hoy, Justin Arnold, Travis Tedford

I watched quite a few of the Horrorfest lineup before getting to this point, and until now, I was rather impressed with this year’s offerings. A few of the other titles were a little rocky and left me disappointed and wanting more, while a few others surpassed all expectation in a blast of pleasant surprise. But just like each year has a foreign film, it would appear that each year also has one movie that doesn’t play to you at all. Not even the tiniest little bit. Last year this honor went to The Butterfly Effect 3, and the now new champion is The Final, a movie that actually had me angry by its end.
