Don’t Look is actually not a half-bad, independent horror movie that takes homage to the 1980s slashers and does feature some respectable gore effects and a few decent performances. Far from perfect but still a mild recommendation.

THE MOVIE


Plot Synopsis: Five friends from New York City embark on a rural getaway for a holiday vacation, but they soon find themselves being targeted by a local, murderous psycho, who may have connections to the group.

Review: Although it doesn’t have the best production values even by indie horror standards, I actually found Don’t Look to be a fun callback or homage to 1980s slashers and outside of a couple of the actors, the performances weren’t half bad and the direction itself, by star Luciana Faulhaber, was more than adequate and unlike some in the indie horror realm, knew of the budgetary limitations.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 1.25/5


The only item included is a Behind the Scenes featurette.

 

VIDEO – 3.5/5, AUDIO – 3.25/5


The movie is presented with a 16×9 enhanced 1.85 widescreen aspect ratio and includes a basic but effective enough Dolby Digital 2.0 track which does output the blood-curdling screams and dialogue fairly well.

OVERALL – 3.0/5


Overall, Don’t Look is actually not a half-bad, independent horror movie that takes homage to the 1980s slashers and does feature some respectable gore effects and a few decent performances. Far from perfect but still a mild recommendation.
