Perkins' 14 (2009)

Officer Dwayne Hopper discovers that he may have the man that kidnapped his son ten years earlier locked up in one of his cells. After interrogating the man and sending a friend to investigate his home, Hopper unwittingly unleashes his prisoner's fourteen victims, whose years of torture and drug exposure have turned them into feral killers! What begins as a suspenseful play on the familiar SILENCE OF THE LAMBS motif quickly descends into a bloody survival Horror film with unexpected thrills. PERKINS' unlikeable characters manage to garner the audience's support when they are faced with the unstoppable PCP-induced teens. Craig Singer brings a frenetic energy to the attack sequences, which include a number of inventive deaths (the most memorable of which involves a black screen broken only by the light of a flashlight as it hammers into a policeman's skull repeatedly). The film is a welcome surprise out of the After Dark Horrorfest III!

Rating: 7/10.
Gore: 6/10.
Entertainment: 8/10.
Number of views: 1.

  1. I think the title alone is worth a watch.

  2. Why do I think I have seen this one... Did it air on television last year?

  3. Possible but not probably? Maybe on Starz? That is unless SyFy got a whack at the ADH III films? It really is a great title, and there are many good moments in the film, but the directing can become amateurish and forced at time.

  4. It was okay. If your bored its not the worst on earth, not much of a rewatch factor, i can watch flicks like "the thing" over and over. Some scares plots decent(ish).
