People Kill People.
Released in 3D, this US-Canadian production remakes a Japanese film of the same name and bores everyone to death in the process. Things start off promisingly, there’s a fear of solitude theme pulsing away and parental strife is set in place, this could very well be an intelligent and scary picture. No such luck!
The original Asian film itself is no great shakes to begin with, itself more content to trundle along a formulaic path shadowed by far greater J-Horror movies past, but it did have oodles of unnerving atmosphere. Michael Taverna’s remake has zero atmosphere, leaving the characters floundering with a boorish screenplay and stock shocks that didn’t even work in 3D anyway.
One to avoid here, moronic characters doing sub-moronic things, with a story that reveals itself too early and goes nowhere fast. 2/10
