Gnome Alone (2015/Lionsgate DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: C- Film: D

Evil's In The House

Gnome Alone could quite possibly be one of the worst B horror movies released in the past ten years - only second to Ginger Clown (which I reviewed elsewhere on this site). Starring Verne Troyer (Mini Me from the Austin Powers films) as an evil Gnome - which much akin to Warwick Davis' turn in the Leprechaun films. The film features naughty lesbian sex education teacher, wild parties, crappy makeup and effects, gracious nudity and gore, and pretty much everything else you would come to expect from a film in this genre except one thing: a good story.

The legend of Troyer's gnome begins a long, long time ago, spawned when a deceiving witch steals a leprechaun's treasure. After the leprechaun hatches his own plan of revenge, the witch is marked with a scathing physical marking, but she turns the scar into a protective symbol through her own magic. Using her dark powers, she summons a murderous gnome to grant the nastiest wishes of whoever carries the brand, as the 'curse' is passed over once the previous owner dies. Fast forwarding through a number of generations, Gnome Alone picks up as the newest victim, Zoe (Kerry Knuppe), struggles to comprehend why all her enemies start turning up dead, and why a creepy little creature is haunting her every move.

The makeup on Troyer looks like it was done by a first year special effects student along with some of the other lame attempts at special effects. This movie is so bad it will have you groaning and moaning in disgust for the entirety of its 94 minute run time there really isn't much more to say except that it makes Leprechaun look like a masterpiece.

The presentation on the disc is fine for the DVD format and features a standard definition transfer with an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 1:78.1 and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track.
