The Curse Of Downers Grove (2014/Anchor Bay Blu-ray)

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

From the writer of American Psycho, Brett Easton Ellis, comes The Curse of Downers Grove. Critically panned and for good reason, the film borderlines on teenage soap opera and a script that is surprisingly underdeveloped. Starting out with an interesting premise based around a curse and inspired by a true story, the film ends up being a by the numbers teenage horror film with a lot of voice over narration and a predictable final act.

The film stars Bella Heathcoate, Helen Slater, Kevin Zegers, Lucas Till, Penelope Mitchell, and Tom Arnold.

In suburban Downers Grove, Illinois, people call it The Curse. Before the end of every school year, one high school senior will die in a gruesome accident. And with only one week left, Chrissie Swanson can't shake the fear that she might be next. Can Chrissie survive the curse of Downers Grove or will she, like those seniors before her, fall prey to the town's deadly secret?

Presented in high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 2.40:1, the film looks fantastic on Blu-ray disc coupled with a powerful, lossless Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track that is crystal clear and impressive. The only bonus feature is a Behind The Scenes of Downers Grove featurette.
