I had heard about this movie (Desperate Souls) from watching a trailer for it on my uncut DVD of Saw. In all honesty, the trailer is by far the best thing about this wretched piece of crap. Now I can try to respect the story, it did sound rather interesting (if not unimaginative), and sounded like it would be a decent Evil Dead type of movie. However about five minutes into the movie it quit being okay, and it turned into a unbearable crapfest. This movie takes the words "poor lighting," and "drab scenery" to a whole new level. The directors also seem to be obsessed with heavy metal music. Most if not all of the lame soundtrack is loud unintelligible heavy metal butt rock. There is a story in this movie, but after five minutes of bad lighting, terrible acting, you'll kind of just give up on it. It is obvious that the writers didn't really care enough to put in a coherent storyline. Or you know, people who know how to act, and I suppose actually being able to see things in a movie is too much to ask for. Does that sound so unreasonable? Apparentaly so, in only one or two scenes are things really noticeable, the rest of it are damn near impossible to see. And in one scene there sounds like a cool battle is going on, but you can't see anything. What the hell?! And I must say they really went all out with the scenery (if you can't sense the sarcasm you need to be smacked). Further to the point this movie had very little to do with the trailer, and the trailer was the best part of this debacle of the film. Bad lighting, terrible acting, drab scenery, things I construed as homo eroticism (a man calling another man buttercup?), bland DVD setup, and no special features on said DVD. Avoid this movie like the plague, if your wanting to watch a movie like this, avoid this and watch one of the Evil Dead movies.
