Run, Hide, Die. DVD Review
The plot: After her husband was allegedly murdered, Addison has been struggling to move past the tragedy. On the year anniversary of his death, Addison gets an invite to have a trip to a family summer cabin. Thinking it would do her good, she and 4 gal pals head off on a relaxing vacation. Since this is a horror film, you can probably surmise that this vacation is anything but relaxing as someone is stalking them. Who is terrorizing Addison and company and why? That would be spoiling the film.
“Run, Hide, Die.” is the type of amateur low budget indie horror film that gives the horror genre a bad name. Not only does this slasher blatantly borrow from genre classics like “Friday The 13th,” but it is so poorly made that you have to wonder how it was released. While the majority of the cast is generally decent, their performances are marred by terrible editing, a clichéd and unconvincing vengeful villain, lame plot twists, and perhaps the most hellacious directorial style and cinematography in recent memory. Virtually every shot is an extreme close-up which is distracting to say the least. It’s even worse during supposedly scary moments because you can hardly see what is going on.
Presentation: 2.40:1. How does it look? The transfer is acceptable, but it’s hard to judge it when the cinematography is so atrocious.
Audio Track: Dolby Digital 5.1. How does it sound? Don’t expect much from this track due to the low quality sound from the film. The dialogue is barely audible at times.
The lone extras are Image Entertainment and RLJ Entertainment trailers.
