The byline for this movie states: “Most horror stories take place in suburban areas, but these three teenagers are about to realize that those are not the only places where these things happen.”
Nicholas Michael Jacobs also directed Night, a movie that features long shots of people getting ready. This one starts with nearly ten minutes of a guy going through drawers while being barely audible.
There are three stories here. In Sundown, a young man waits for a partner to help in break in to a house. That man no shows, so he heads home — leading to that overly long looking through stuff moment we discussed — and gets chased by a killer. Inanimate is about an evil doll made of human skin — as well as a lengthy laundry sequence — and the final story is all about the chain email that cursed the babysitting in the opening story. Finally, the bad guys from each segment all fight one another at the end.
Supposedly, Jacobs is in his early twenties and I already see an improvement from Night. Here’s to his next film — and the one after that — as he continues to grow. Hopefully, he gets more than $1,000 for his next budget.
