Quick Review - Cruel World (2005)

Cruel World (2005) Dir. by Kelsey T. Howard

Reeling from his dismissal from a reality show, a deranged runner-up holds a group of co-eds hostage on the set of his own fictitious show, where losers suffer a deadly fate

I decided that some people are right when they say- some movies don't deserve a full review. This is one of those movies. This movie is complete garbage from start to finish. It is an interesting concept, but poorly written, filmed, and acted. A cast of enough b-list actors you can't count them on both hands, and they still couldn't do anything with it. Ed Furlong is mildly entertaining as the bad guy, but the kills are so dull, and lack any creativity (minus one awesomely bad decapitation). I could give this the full review and barely fill a paragraph with good things to say. This is a don't rent, don't buy, don't watch it at all costs. That is, unless you are a glutton for punishment.

Entertainment Value: 3/10 Decapitations
Cinematic Value: 2/10 Decapitations

Yeah, this one was a total POS. The concept had potential, but the execution was just pitiful. Somehow I watched this on Blu-ray.
