Title: Killer Eye: Halloween Haunt
Directed by: Charles Band
Starring: Erica Rhodes, Olivia Alexander and Chelsea Edmundson
Running time: 71 minutes, Not Rated
Jenna asks her four hot girlfriends to help her decorate her mom’s house into a Halloween Haunt, they decide to hang out and party afterward by drinking, getting scantily clad and watch a DVD: The Killer Eye. Somehow the film breaks the 4th wall and possesses the girls in order to impregnate one of them with a killer eye spawn.
I really didn’t understand why this film had to be made. There was an actual Killer Eye film, which totally sucks, but the original Killer Eye movie is a movie within a movie. Kind of an Inception style concept, but completely unnecessary. It’s a group of girls who take their tops off at random and have lesbian tendencies, and they’re all hot. C’mon, there are no groups of women friends who are all hot; you have to throw one fat one and one ugly one, just to keep it somewhat balanced, and I don’t care if you kill them off first, just act like you’re trying to make it a little plausible.
I did like the part where they start watching the movie and they start to rip on it; which was reminiscent of the brilliant Mystery Science Theater 3000. That was my only favorite part. One part that stuck out was when the rubber eye is brought to life and eats it’s way through a woman’s vagina, crawls into her body cavity and gets puked up. Then the homicidal eyeball attempts to rape other females and murders them when they resist, then take over their bodies to seduce other women in order to impregnate them. What the what?
The special features have nothing to do with the actual film, just a couple of short horror films from Youtube and some previews.
I like some of Charles Band’s previous work, but this is not one of his best. I would watch it again to show other people how dumb it was; but I did laugh a couple of times. If you want to see a lot of boobs and don’t care about a crappy story, then by all means.
