Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Dvds -

The hor­ror genre land­scape is lit­tered with the prover­bial corpses of these types of heavy­handed ‘‘ kids must die’’ films and this one rides the cliches from start to fin­ish. An Oz pro­duc­tion, the sim­plis­tic premise re­volves around the un­cov­er­ing of a voodoo re­venge ma­chine which is used by a face­less killer to knock off a group of col­lege stu­dents. It’s pre­dictable mur­dermys­tery busi­ness with an over em­pha­sis on ‘‘ Amer­i­can­is­ing’’ every­thing, plus there’s lit­tle vari­a­tions in the gory kill scenes.

Ex­tras: ★ ★ Re­veal­ing mak­ing- of fea­turette and a gar­den- va­ri­ety gag reel.
