REVIEWS MOVIE SLAUGHTER NIGHT (SL8N8)
The feeling I got after this movie was (surprisingly): hey, this is not bad! Not bad at all – for Dutch horror. I must admit that I’ve never seen any other Dutch horror-movie to compare it to (‘De Vierde Man’ comes to mind, but that’s a movie from the mid-’80s and i’d rather call it ‘mystic’ than ‘horror’) – but that doesn’t matter much. What dóes matter is that this movie isn’t bad at all.
All and all, the story-line is nothing spectacular. In fact, it’s all been done só many times that if somebody’d quickly sum up the events of this movie, you’d expect it to be extremely boring. However, it’s a fact that most of the time, in horror, clichés work great. And because the horror-genre isn’t so terrible overdone here in the Netherlands, the people that made this movie have a fresh(ish) approach to all those clichés, and turn it into something that’s quite enjoyable to watch.
So, strangely enough, here we have a film that’s stuffed to the brim with cliché (even the most corny horror-line ever (‘we’re gonna have to split up’) is used) but that’s still enjoyable to watch on an otherwise lost Saturday-evening. And not ónly because it happens to be Dutch.
