So slow that it will kill your focus and interest in it...
19 November 2016 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

What did I just witness? Aside from 1 hour and 42 minutes of pure, unquestionable boredom? Well, nothing interesting to say the least. "Exquisite Corpse" was anything but interesting, and it dragged itself at an unfathomably slow pace.

The synopsis of "Exquisite Corpse" states 'chilling modern-day Frankenstein'. Right! There was absolutely nothing even remotely Frankenstein-like about this story. A guy bringing a dead mouse and a dead girlfriend back to life, that doesn't even match the grotesque thing that is Frankenstein, as it was life given to a creature created from several different individuals.

I was sorely disappointed with "Exquisite Corpse" and I must admit that I actually dozed off a couple of times throughout the course of this abysmal movie. And I also ended up with my focus on my mobile phone instead of on the movie.

The story in "Exquisite Corpse" is about a young neuroscientist whose girlfriend accidentally drowns, and he breaks all codes of conduct and morale when he brings her back from the eternal sleep that is death. But in order to save her life, he must take the lives of others.

Right, well it had potential, I will say that much. But branding it as a modern day Frankenstein, was just taking it too far. And while the storyline did have potential, it was just never utilized, as director Scott David Russell opted to let the movie scurry about at a snail-like pace.

The acting in the movie was quite alright, taking into consideration that the acting talents here had next to nothing to work with in terms of storyline, script or anything else worthwhile for a successful horror movie.

If you enjoy horror movies, do yourself a favor and stay well clear of this one. I suffered through it, more of less given my lack of focus on the unfathomably boring events on the screen, so you don't have to.

"Exquisite Corpse" scores a rating of two out of ten stars from me, and I do believe that I am being generous here.
