Among Friends


Just look at these people, don't you want to punch every one of them.

(2012)**

Bernadette is hosting a party and only the cool people are invited. Not just any cool people only the coolest of the cool. When the coolest of the cool get invited to a party they don't just hop in the car and go they get a limo and they go in style. They all sit around the dinner table and relish in each other's awesomeness until they realize that the totally uncool Bernadette has drugged all of them and they are for the moment paralyzed from the waist down. Turns out the cool people aren't really that cool, actually there are bunch assholes who treat each other terribly and have no respect. Bernadette decides to call them out on this and play a little game which includes viewing videos of the shitty things they've done with a little torture for payback, a little scalping, a little cutting off of bodily appendages just to spice things up a bit. But hey what's wrong with a little bloodletting among friends.


Ow, that really hurt...yawn.
The premise of this film isn't bad but the acting is atrocious. I mean if a person just got partially scalped then had a nail driven through their hand I think that you might hear a little bit of a tortured inflection in their voice. At least show a little pain, this woman acted like it was just another stroll through the park. In these type of movies their should be at least one sympathetic character that you feel bad for but honestly I didn't give a shit about any of them, including the host. The only glimmer of hope was the limo driver who was played by Kane Hodder, I believe he was the only actor in the film that had anything substantial under his belt. That said, this is the second movie I've watch this season in which Kane was overtaken by a small woman and stabbed to death. He needs a better agent.

Awesome review! And yes, I want to punch every single one of them. Dude in the back looks like f'in Ryan Seacrest.

wow, the premise sounds similar to The Final. I like the idea of it but the poor acting would sink it for me.

Ha! When I read the end I thought you meant Kane Hodder needs a better agent not for his acting but for his serial killing.

I'd totally have a party like that! But after paralyzing everyone I'd just make them watch a lot of Star Trek or something.

Oh Lordy! Did you know this was gonna stink when you picked it?

Sad to say I kind of expected it.
