CHERRY FALLS

 

Director(s): Geoffrey Wright

Writer(s): Ken Seldon

Cast: Brittany Murphy, Michael Biehn, Gabriel Mann, Jesse Bradford, Jay Mohr

 

Synopsis: In the small town of Cherry Falls, Virginia, a black-clad, long-haired killer is offing various high school teenage virgins in various gory ways.  Jody Markam, the virginal teenage daughter of the town's sheriff in charge of the investigation, launches her own investigation to figure out the killers idenity, and stumbles into a web of long hidden dark secrets spun around the killings involving people of the town she always thought she trusted.  Meanwhile, the teenagers have thrown a "pop your cherry" party so they aren't the killers next victim.

 

My Review: Reading the plot for this film before I saw it, I thought it would be a pretty lame horror film, it happened to be on T.V one night, and nothing else was on, so what the heck. I was pretty wrong, granted the killing of virgins was a pretty cheesy idea for a film, it wasn't bad. 

 

The story really had you guessing what was going on, and what was going to happen next.  The one thing that I really liked about the film was that something like this could happen (minus the virgin problem) they set it up in such a good way. 

 

The film was really lacking in killings.  There were a fair amount of them, but all of them were off-screen. The only part of the killings you saw was the bodies being discovered, I would have loved to see the killings actually taking place. 

 

The only thing that is kinda funny about this film, is the message they are sending out. That the virgins will be killed, while in other slasher films, its usually the virgins who survive.
