I just got thru watching Knucklebones and was pleasantly Surprised. Ididn't know what to expect. What I got was a fast paced well made film.I am a fan of Horror & Slasher Films.I've seen them all. I have fallenasleep as of late from the Tired run of the mill rehashed ideas. I'llbe honest and say I went into this one thinking the same. At once Inoticed the tight Direction and pacing of the Film. The F/X wereawesome and the whole look of the Film was way above that of most ofthe latest horror i've seen.This film has it all. Beautiful Actressesand it is bloody as hell.Knuckle bones was AWESOME and powerful inevery scene.This is a horror nuts movie. Beautiful Ladies, Some skin &Bloody Deaths. Pass the popcorn i'm watching this one again...

I caught the world premiere of this at FrightFest and was glad to havedone so. I've been a big fan of the Friday 13th formula for a long timeand it's something that's been missing in recent years.
Slasher movies since the 90s have often tried to extend or adapt theformula to keep the genre fresh but in all honesty, the Freddy/Jasonformat is hard to beat.
Need I explain much? Some randy teens find a disused warehouse andsummon a demon, by mistake, which then leads to him dispatching themone by one. I'm not going to get heavy on the story here, it's not whatI went to see the movie for but it is a reasonably decent premise whenrevealed which I'll leave to you to discover.
The acting is good but I'm not going to suggest we have anyOscar-worthy stuff in it. The beautiful Julin, who plays Neesa ispretty solid in her lead role and the rest work well around her.
As a splatter flick, this movie rocks. Knucklebones, the demon, is thereal hero and whilst the kills are more Jason-style, as far as the toolset used is concerned, the one-liners and general inventiveness aremore from the Elm-street book.
A fun 90 minutes of midnight, popcorn horror. Check it out if it's yourthing.

If you think this movie is some sort of underground piece of art youhave dug too far. With the strange acting, massive plot holes, andsimply bizarre happenings all around. If you want to have a coupledrinks and laugh your asses off at a one of a kind film this is it. Ifthey had fixed the plot a little and cut nearly all of the storybuilding in the beginning I would love to have this movie on disk towatch over and over again. Once Knucklebones is out and chasing all therandy teenagers the movie is super fun, fast paced, and the endingisn't half bad either.
Otherwise this movie is packed full of perfect one liners and hilariousmoments and if you can ignore all of the poor plot and silly charactersyou are sure to have a great time!
A group of bored college students unleash a murderous demon while playing a dice game made from human knucklebones.
