Rage: Midsummer's Eve full movie review - One of the worst Horror movies I have had the displeasure of seeing
I'm not even sure where to begin with reviewing this film. I made an account on IMDb just so I could purposely warn others to stay far far away. Nothing about it was "okay". Everything was sub sub sub sub sub (sub) par.
The acting was terrible. It seems the director thought it would be a good idea to mix people from different nationalities so the viewer wasn't really sure if it was terrible acting or if the accents were just throwing the viewer off. Spoiler: It was terrible acting. Maybe it suffered from a poor script, but the actors didn't ever portray any emotion. When someone from the group dies they continue a long like nothing has happened; no tears, no screaming. Just a lot of running.... In fact in the scene where Jussi dies Hannah is seen smirking as she is running away (what? why?).
The cinematography was terrible. It never once showed anything interesting other than tress and people running. In the one scene where Hannah is in the barn, you see her looking through a peephole and seeing the "creature". She then gasps and runs away. What did she see? Spoiler: You'll never know because the director decided not to show it.
And what is the creature you may ask? WHO KNOWS! Is it a person? It is a yeti? Is it possessed? Is it a serial killer? Why is he killing people? THINGS YOU WILL NEVER KNOW. The only clue to knowing anything about this film is the description given by the director "American and British friends studying in Finland decide to take up an offer to travel to the Arctic Circle and experience the mysterious, pagan celebration of Midsummer's Eve." This description alone tells than the whole film.
I could go on and on about all the other terrible things that happened in this film; but I've already wasted more time on this film than I've wanted to.
I hope Tii Ricks find another career path because direction is just not in the cards for her. Everything about this film is just SO BAD. The character decisions, the dialogue, the plot. NOTHING EVER HAPPENS. I've always thought people were dramatic when they would say "I want the last two hours of my life back", but I've finally come across a film that has made me feel that way.
Also all of the good reviews for this film are fake. They are either family members, cast & crew members or friends. No one with any taste in film would give this anything greater than a 1 or 2. Hope whoever spent the 1.3 million to make this has a lot more money in the bank; they won't be getting any of that back. What a waste.
Avoid at all costs. If you want to see a film about bad actors, irrational people and no plot line then this is the film for you. Even then you'll probably still be disappointed. The poop factor of this film cannot be expressed enough.
