The Orphan Killer (2011)

How bad is it? It's a new generation's very flawed attempt to do "Friday the 13th."
Should you see it? If you like splatter films, it delivers.

This is just a plotless series of blood and gore set pieces. A tortured orphan becomes a killer in a mask and he goes after her sister, who's a match for him. There's no suspense, no likeable characters and an annoying hardcore music soundtrack. There's countless continuity errors and logical errors. If you don't think about it, though, there's enough violence and nudity to keep one's attention; once you do think about it, you'll notice things like how blood only seems to be in convenient places.

  1. Well, at least your review answered my one burning question: Was it about an orphan who kills, or a person who kills orphans?
