Can you believe this is the 4th year of 31 Days of Halloween? This year I am taking the reins with some help from Susan Harris. Things might look a little different but I guarantee one thing - Lots of "different" Halloween options!
Day 7 - Monster Party (2018)
Melanie Says -
This is another one of those random movies we acquired, but this time it was from the Dollar Tree. With a description of 3 small town crooks who pose as caterers for a rich house having a dinner party .... except the dinner party is in fact code for a support meeting for "recovering serial killers", how could I resist?
I was surprised to see some pretty big names in a movie that barely made it to theaters, Sam Strike, Erin Moriarty, Robin Tunney, Bill Engvall, Julian McMahon, and Lance Reddick, although even they struggled in parts.
The idea is a great one, and I loved how dark the themes were with some inspiration obviously being taken from big cases like the Menendez Brothers, and I always appreciate a little irony in my movies, but this fell into the hole of not quite being campy enough to be bad good (although some of the special effects - REALLY LAUGHABLE), and not serious enough to build any kind of tension (well for me - I am sure some people would feel differently).
Overall I would probably rate it about a 7 - worth watching for free if you happen to like any of the cast - which I do, and it comes in at my magic 90 minute mark (which followers of the page know that's my IDEAL movie length).
