“I took a wild guess on this film to be honest…. front cover looked good, the synopsis on the back made the film sound good, but when push came to shove, it was just u0026quot;alrightu0026quot;. The characters were drab and boring and very cliché u0026quot;horror teen victimsu0026quot;, the script was quite funny with a few comedy moments and one-liners and on first impressions the storyline seemed very much u0026quot;done before a million and one timesu0026quot;. Reeker has its fair share of slight frights (if youu0026#39;re a girl), funny moments and half-decent gore special fx, but the twist at the end? What the hell? As much as it sort of tied the story together, it also left me thinking u0026quot;OK, but…. why?u0026quot; I think it tries to be too clever and whacky, and fails! An OK u0026quot;no-braineru0026quot; to watch with a four pack and a takeaway, but please donu0026#39;t expect a genius horror film… youu0026#39;ll be disappointed!”
