Nothing outstanding to be had here...
30 November 2019 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Oddly enough I have never gotten around to watching the 2008 movie "Plague Town" before now late in 2019, and I am a big horror fan. But I did sit down, finally, and watched it.

This wasn't really an outstanding movie and it was a less than mediocre horror experience, so it turned out that I hadn't really been missing out on a horror gem for all these years.

The storyline just failed to fully entice me, and it just felt like another run-of-the-mill-dysfunctional-countryside-family-gone-bad type of movie, like what you'd see in "Wrong Turn", "The Hills Have Eyes" and the like. So on that account "Plague Town" drowned in all the other movies on the market.

The acting in the movie was adequate, but it was a shame that the actors and actresses had so very little to work with in terms of a captivating script and storyline, and characters that weren't really all that interesting to begin with.

As for the horror aspect of the movie, well it wasn't outstanding or memorable, especially not to a seasoned horror veteran such as myself.

I managed to sit through the entire movie, but I weren't really entertained, and this is definitely not a movie that I will be returning to watch a second time. My rating of "Plague Town" is a four out of ten stars. This is mostly because of the production value that the movie had to it.
