[1.00/10] Cornered! (2009)


Cornered! (2009)

Short review: "Cornered!" is about a group of lowlifes who are terrorized in their own convenience store by a masked killer, during their nightly poker game. This poorly-made low budget slasher is as terrible as it sounds. In this lackluster shocker, the plot is non-existent, the characters are flat and completely one-dimensional, and the gore scenes are badly-executed and lack any inventiveness whatsoever. Daniel Maze's weak direction delivers nothing, and the overly simple set design makes this film look even worse. The acting is atrocious, with the exception of James Duval as Jimmy, who's portrayal of drug addict is filled with authenticity. Steve Guttenberg is terribly miscast in "Cornered!" - his face is so cartoonish, and his attitude is so comical, it makes him the worst possible casting choice for this role. All in all, "Cornered!" is the most unimaginative, stupid and uninspired slasher flick I've seen in years! That was worse then "Jason X"!

Wow, that bad huh? I was actually planning on renting this because the cover art looked pretty cool... the killer with the zipper-mouth mask thing. I guess I will just skip it now. Thanks for taking one for the team.

Don't be mislead by the cover art! It was completely horrible in every aspect. Don't waste your time with it.

Yes.. maybe if I don't read your review first I also will be mislead by that quite well made poster.
