Well here we are again another holiday and another day to drink a beer and watch a horror movie. This one like any other is based on a specific day….Memorial day. A b horror movie trying to cash in on unsuspecting victims partying and being killed by a masked killer.
This film was directed by Christopher Alender and had a sort of run of the mill plot.
Rachel hasn’t slept for a while. A few years back, her brother was mysteriously killed while she and a group of friends partied by the lake side. Three years later, she and her friends must return to the same lake to finally put the nightmares to rest. To come to grips with what happened. To admit that it was just an accident. But someone is waiting for them. Someone who knows the truth. Someone who wants revenge. As night descends on their Memorial Day getaway, each individual must face an unstoppable killing machine with a serious hatchet to bury. As the body count rises, Rachel must discover whose face lies behind the murderous mask. Is it just a stranger in the woods? Or is it someone she already knows? This Memorial Day, the screaming doesn’t stop until the last body drops.
The film had great kills and some high points but most of the time was easily guessed and fell in to background noise.
I felt like I was watching Halloween….but just a few months earlier.
I rate this film a 5/10 for trying
