    Cherry Falls (spoilers)

    ok....I've met a lot of horror fans that for some reason love this movie, and for the life of me I can't figure out why. It came on HBO the other night, and all I remembered about it for some reason was the reveal of the killer (who its obvious is the killer throughout the movie) so I thought I'd give it a watch. I thought maybe I just gave this movie a bad rap and should just give it another chance. I really wish I hadn't.

    First off the killer is stupid, its a man dressed as a woman and you can OBVIOUSLY tell. Theres a big difference between the sound a man makes and the sound a woman makes when they go "OWW!". So I thought that was a dumb little twist they tried to hide from the audience. Another is the fact that pretty much everybody dies off screen. Off screen kills aren't automatically always terrible but in this movie they're all terrible.

    I personally don't have to have nudity in my movies at all, but when a movie is about a psycho killing off virgins and the kids decide to have a big sex party in the end....I'm expecting some boobage, and there isn't any. The only set of jugs in this flick are some dead chick laying on a morgue slab, no thanks. Theres another thing that annoys me. It has that one character that almost every one of these movies has and its that one really eccentric over the top character that dresses really weird and has to shake things up. You know the one, the guy most of us didn't really go to high school with in real life. He's played this time by Karim Malicki Sanchez. You probably don't know the name but trust me you've seen him a billion times. I don't always dislike him, but god I did in this.

    The acting in this movie is atrocious. Yeah Michael Biehn from Terminator and Aliens is in this and that's cool, but that doesn't save the rest of the movie. Although this one is staring the late Brittany Murphy who did do a good job in this, and was adorable as hell. Still sucks she died. I didn't mind her in most things. And the boyfriend, FUCK I hated this guy. He has no redeeming qualities at all and we're supposed to pull for him in the end? no no no no. He was a fuck stick douche bag, he should have died. And there's one other part in the end that made no sense. This movie isn't made artsy, its not got an unrealistic look to it. Its filmed (poorly) as if this is happening in real life. Yet there's supposed to be some kind of metaphor or some stupid shit in the end when the "falls" in the movie turn blood red out of nowhere, which was just dumb as hell. This whole movie is just dumb as shit.

    I dug it. Caught it when it premiered on the USA network back around the Halloween season. Didn't really see the twist coming at the time, but if I were to watch it now for the first time it'd be pretty obvious. Either way, thought the killer's weapon was cool and I liked the concept. Good pacing too. A fun and above average slasher.

    I liked the plot but the whole film was just okay from what I remember. Then again, I haven't seen it since it was on USA like FrighT said...and I was like a baby then.

    I brought this... waste of money since the film is a tad on the wank side, ok for a one time watch though.

    Am I wrong but wasn't this a made for TV movie? That is how I have always explained away the lack of nudity at an "orgy". I liked it, it's just not a movie I would have my brain on for.

    I thought it was intended for theaters but got dumped to a cable premiere. Like the much loved Lindsay Lohan movie Labor Pains.

    I just watched it and seems like another generic slasher. The soundtrack is good, though. I know they cut out some stuff.

    (The director, Geoffrey Wright, made Romper Stomper which is an excellent film)

    Overall a 5/10, maybe a 5.5/10 at the most. I might watch an uncut version if they ever release it.

    It had a good 90s slasher premise.. and some cool roles.. Jay Mohr FTW. but like others said.. very cut down.

    Definitely cut down. The violence was all quick cuts and the orgy party was the most chaste I've ever seen lol. You would expect more from a movie called 'Cherry Falls'.

    Nice little capsule review Chief.

    Cherry Falls was released in the era or teen slasher movies inspired by Scream (1995). The movie was pretty forgettable.

    I still dig the flick and some of the uniqueness of the killer, especially at the time it came out. But yeah, apparently it had to be cut quite a bit to even receive an R-rating. We think the MPAA is bad now, but it must've been terrible back then

    It was a nice twist for me when I first saw it, but I also liked the weapon he used and how he could change it

    I dont mind this one, especially for a background watch type of movie. Its entertaining but i dont need to invest a lot of attention too it.
