Film Review-Venom



directed by Jim Gillespie

85 minutes


Plot-Now released on blu ray from Echo Bridge entertainment. From the director of Eye See You and I know what you did last summer comes this tale that is about a group of older actors and actresses trying to be teenagers and running thru the swamps of Louisiana, as they are chased by this evil character named Mr Jangles.


Review-I am a diehard horror fan. First off, I loved the blu ray transfer. This is one of the better transfers I have seen yet. Ok, that is out of the way, so I know the majority of you reading this review, have seen this film and know what you thought and only want to see what the transfer is like. If you liked this film, it is worth the change to upgrade to blu ray…now, I am a diehard horror fan. How can I soften the blow of how bad this film is? I hate to totally trash a film, but this film the second time in 6 years I watched it, was even worst than the first time.  I almost forgot about this film, until I got the chance to review it on blu ray. I originally watched this in 2005, me and my wife went to the theater and paid more money than I will admit on here to see it. I know I paid for most of the budget. I remember my wife looking at me at the 25 minute mark and saying ” really, you dragged me to this”….From the stars in this film to the plot, this film is just bad. I thought Chain Letter was bad, this is just as bad. No horror fan alive can tell me one redeeming quality of this film. It is bad.

This is what they call a fast cash…they say ” hey horror fans will buy into this”…give them a cheapie with some done to death premise and sets..I mean why damn the studios, they are all guilty of this practice. But, some of the bloggers, critics and magazines sometime are newer to the genre and embrace films like this cause they do not have the exposure to better horror films. So if you are brand new to the genre and around 15 years old, this film will be your Star Wars. If you have watched hundreds upon hundreds of films, this film is a joke. A cruel and bad joke. Venom is what a poisonous fluid…this film is truly Venom. God save the horror industry and make these people put out better films…6 years later, my wife is still mad that I spent money on this at the theater.
