The Curse Of Lizzie Borden
C Sound: C Extras: D Feature: C-
earliest days of the Horror genre, when you saw “the curse” as the beginning of
any title, you knew you were in for a bad story unrelated to what the title
otherwise would indicate the film was about.
Ford Austin’s The Curse Of Lizzie
Borden (2006) is another such tale.
famous rhyme about Borden, you would think we might lean a bit something about
the murders, but we instead get a story when a bunch of dumb teenagers (actors
looking a bit older than that) move into the home where the murders took place
and “weird” things happen. That includes
more murder, but not before meeting some eccentric oaf (Victor Buono has
nothing to worry about) who adds nothing to the silly proceedings. This is weak and worth skipping.
X 1 image was shot on video and has some silly visual effects throughout, as
well a poor playback in general. The
Dolby Digital 2.0 sound is as bad, barely stereo and badly recorded. The only extra is a trailer that is as silly
as the final result, which if it were a TV show, would be axed.
