We have taken some photos of "7eventy 5ive aka Dead Tone". They represent actual movie quality.
I expected the absolute minimal when renting "7eventy 5ive" and, eventhough the opening sequences seemed to confirm I was about to see yetanother abysmal and irritating modern slasher flick, the whole thingeventually turned out to be an entertaining and moderately surprisingmovie. Sometimes the opening credits alone are enough to betray thequality-level of the entire film, and in the case of "7eventy 5ive"this already was a pretty bad omen. Luckily the movie got a whole lotbetter after that. The story idea (of the intro as well as of the wholemovie) isn't too bad, but the execution is terrible, with thehopelessly unclear editing of gory murders interlarded with the mostamateurishly accomplished credit you've ever seen. During some kind ofparty event, the kids of several couples are in the bedroom makingprank calls to random people. The night ends in a complete bloodbathwhen the parents receive a visit from an axe-wielding maniac. The titleof the movie refers to a prank call game where the player has to tryand keep the other person on the line for at least 75 seconds. Tenyears after the massacre, some of the survivors are still playing thisgame with their new college friends, but once again the prank backfireson them when another (or the same?) killer answers the phone anddecides to make a house call after. "7eventy 5ive" is a pretty standardand unmemorable slasher movie containing all the basic screenplayingredients (dumb bimbo girls, macho guys, transparent red herrings, Â )but also a handful of mildly imaginative elements (like a neat attemptto a surprise end-twist, some okay humor and a even a little bit ofsuspense). The murders are, in good old 80's tradition, engrossing andplentiful. The hooded killer swings around an impressive axe, so youmay prepare to see various brutal beheadings, limb amputation and moresimilarly repulsive stuff. The soundtrack somewhat annoyed me, butmaybe that's because I'm not much of a hip-hop fan. The youthful castisn't as bad and untalented as all the other reviewers claim they are(except for the main blond chick) and it was very nice to see RutgerHauer in the brief supportive role of veteran police officer. I assumedhis character would be the typically sarcastic and witty copper, but itactually was a serious role. If you choose to watch "7eventy 5ive"today, you'll probably won't remember much about it tomorrow, but atleast it offered some fun and thrills while it lasted. Personally, Iappreciate modest and small-scaled productions like this overboisterous and pretentious films that claim to save the genre, like, ohI don't know, "Hatchet"?
This was a fun and entertaining slasher with brutal and bloody slayingsbut it was extremely unoriginal with a lot of dumb characters runningaround like chickens with their heads cut off. The whole concept hasbeen done to death now and it tried too hard to be like a film likeScream or Urban Legend and it ended up more like a weaker version ofValentine. This film looked like it was made in the 1990's and itshould of been released in that era because it might of done betterbecause that's when this type of film was hip but now it's just notthat scary or that suspenseful I mean it just failed at it though therewas a couple of jump scares here and there but they were cheap. In theend there wasn't anything clever about this slasher at all and theycould of done a better job with their material but I guess they wantedto rip off slashers of the 90's, very uninspired and pointless in theend and they left it opened for a sequel but I say don't bother.Overall Dead Tone was dead as a doorknob, BRAINLESS! It was kind of funthough while it lasted but not much thrills can be found in thisslasher. Skip it or watch it if you haven't seen any of the slashers ofthe 1990's. More of a 2.5 out of 5 stars.
There are times when you want a horror movie to be genuinelyfrightening ---if this is one of those times for you, you might want tohang up on Dead Tone. It's just not that type of slasher. It's more ofthe get-a-bunch-of-your-friends-together-throw-stuff-at-the-screen-and-play-drinking-games kind of a slasher.I've never thought ultra-graphic horror was that frightening...inmovies, that is, especially on-a-budget outings like this. Kind of likethe shark in Jaws, the closer you get to it, the less horrific itseems. The killer in Dead Tone wears a hooded ski parka and wields anaxe, so the kills are violent, but you see them coming for secondsbefore they hit. From that point on, it's just a matter of how bad theeffects suck.Still, Dead Tone ain't a total snooze. Given the lack of thrills,marginal to bad acting, and zero character development, all that'sreally left to make this watchable is "how serious are the directorstaking this?" Turns out, not very...and that's good.There's the standard rest-stop sequence, where the "crew" (amulti-culti Benneton crew, of course) stops to take a bathroom break,and that whole scene --- toothless redneck from hell clerk,mega-blasted "fright" music cues at the stupidest moments --- reallyworks. When this film is lampooning the genre and itself, it's the bestand brightest.Sadly, though, those moments are few and far between. There are a lotof visual and scripted call-backs to other, better slashers (UrbanLegend, Black Christmas, etc.) that prove the filmmakers weren't justrubes. But they didn't quite have a handle on what they wanted to do,and the film as a whole suffers for it. Oh yeah, a postscript: Rutger Hauer is the brand-name star here,playing the usual doggerel cop role, and looking barely engaged enoughto make camera contact. One mystery at least solved: I wondered how hemanaged to tumble down the long road to something like the rancid "HoboWith a Shotgun"...this is a telling detour.
When I ordered this movie from Fios on Demand I had nothing to go on but blind faith.It payed off.This was quite a suspenseful gory little Slasher with an interesting storyline.Brian Hooks was the lead in the cast of good young twenty something actors.Rutger Hauer also stars as a detective on a mission. I had seen Brian in several urban comedy's and liked them but was a bit skeptical when he was part of production on this slasher film. What happens is years earlier some kids play a game called 75 where you have to keep a stranger on the phone for 75 seconds without them laughing or hanging up.You have to pitch something scary or stupid, anything to keep them on the line.Well a psycho intercepts one of the calls and comes to the home and murders all the adults during a party and one of the kids sees his parents butchered in front of him..now it's 10 years later and the kids are grown and having a party in a mansion so they decide to play 75 again..one of the 20 somethings forget to dial *67 before one of the calls and mayhem and murder begin in the shape of an axe welding maniac wearing a parka.It was somewhat your usual slasher fare but there were elements of it that made it seem fresh.I went ahead and bought it because It's one I will watch more than once.It's low budget but doesn't give you that cheap look,the effects are well done and the lighting is very effective.I say give it a go.
This review is from: Dead Tone (DVD) good slasher about a prank call gone wrong. the story starts with kids playing a game of prank calls and they call the wrong person who end up being a crazed psychopath and murders everyone except the kids, years later it starts all over again with the killings, could it be the same person bent on revenge or is it someone else bent on revenge. Its not a bad movie, good acting, good kills, and has a pretty good twist ending. Check it out.
I don't even own this movie,I don't know why it shows up as a movie I have purchased, and wants me to review it
Put a bunch of typical (read : annoying) teenagers partying in a hugemansion, feed them with alcohol and sex and let an axe murderer ruinthe party. That's pretty much the idea.Although there are some huge plot holes and the characters are toounlikable too care for, this didn't ruin the entertainment value forme. The atmosphere and style of this film is very reminiscent of "Allthe boys love Mandy Lane" as well as the old fashioned '80s slasherfilms. If this is what you're looking for, you're probably gonna enjoythis film. However, don't expect it to be anything more than that. Itsure as h*** ain't no Shakespeare (to stick with the ghetto language ofsome of this film's characters).
This review is from: Dead Tone (Amazon Instant Video) SUPER SCARY MOVIE, HAS YOU ON EDGE TO THE END. IT ALSO HAD A SHOCKING ENDING, WHICH I DIDN'T EXPECT.
This review is from: Dead Tone (DVD) i ordered this movie after seeing the beginning of it on tv, i wanted to see how it ended. it wasnt the greatest movie ive ever seen, but i do like it a lot. lots of silly teenagers doing dumb things, with a few good twists. all in all, i think its worth watching.
Here we go with other slasher movie, Good looking people and Actingfrom everyone was really good!Few kids playing pranks phones calls and there parents are killed bythe killer in front of the kids! 20 Years after they are still friends,They go to huge house, have fun, Drugs and Sex (no nudity) for leasthalf a hour of the movie! Again they start making pranks phone call allover again! and then killer comes back kills them off one by one andkiller is in BIG BLACK COAT with axe just like Urban Legend movie,Deaths scene really weird, really odd times too.Nice slasher movie at this part would gave 7/10 but the twist at theend of the movie made the whole movie kinda of pointlessThe twist killed the movie for me so I going to give it 4/10
I enjoyed this movie as it was every bit as good as any otherHorror/Slash movie flick that we have seen. You don't want to have tothink and analyze when you are watching, you just want it to flow. Ithought the cast did a great job with what they had to work with. Thescript was poorly written, leaving plots hanging for us to try tofigure out. They gave us a lot of blood and gore which makes this kindof movie met its audience's demands. I personally enjoyed the ending,but wished that they hadn't killed off Katrina, as they could of done asequel. I guess they could say she was stabbed, but didn't die. I likedher, the killer and of course Ratguer Hauer, the detective the best.
Dead Tone (2007) may not be particularly well-written or acted, but at least it mostly delivers in the kill department, as a hooded hatchet wielding killer with at burning desire to spill blood, butchers a group of stupid and annoying college students. Over the top violence is the film's main attribute, unfortunately it takes nearly an hour for the mayhem to begin. The story begins with a group of young kids at a sleepover, making prank calls. Later that evening the phone rings, and a man wearing a mask, bursts into the house wielding an axe, and massacres all the parents. Homicide detective John Criton (Rutger Hauer) is assigned to the case, which remains unsolved. Moving forward ten years, a young man is found dead from a hatchet wound to the head. Criton suspects that the same killer may have struck again, and along with his reluctant partner (Gwendoline Yeo), begins working the case. We also meet a guy named Marcus (Brian Hooks), who was apparently one of the kids who survived the attack. Marcus is the inventor of a game called "Seventy-Five", where the goal is to make a random call, and then try to keep whoever answers on the line for at least 75 seconds. He is part of a group of college friends who tag along with a girl named Karina (Jud Taylor), when she is invited by her ex-boyfriend Brandon O'Connell (Jonathan Chase), to a party at a mansion owned by his father. Despite the past tragedy, the motor-mouthed Marcus is still into playing Seventy-Five, and convinces those at the party to play. Apparently against impossible odds, once again a psycho killer is prank called, becomes enraged, and threatens to kill everyone in the house. As he will be reminded later, Marcus doesn't learn from his mistakes, and unconcerned he returns to partying with his girlfriend Anna (Denyce Lawton). Later that night, a hooded figure (Kyle Turley) with an axe arrives at the house, and begins slicing and dicing party guests. The carnage starts explosively, but thing come to a halt, when the killer traps Marcus, Katrina, and their friends in Brandon's bedroom. The survivors are unable to call for help, and after arguing like idiots, they decide to make a break for freedom. But no matter what they do, death awaits them. Dead Tone features a few mean twists, and a surprise ending that seems quite appropriate. The film stumbles by coming to a halt down the stretch, and having too many off-screen kills. Fortunately the action does pick up, leaving few breathing at the end. The action and kill scenes are competently executed, and are easily the best things about the film, which purposely avoids nudity. Not intended to be much more than a slaughterfest, the film is padded with unnecessary scenes, and the plot has almost no credibility. The dialog is terrible, and in general, the acting is laughably bad. Few of the characters are likeable, and Rutger Hauer isn't present enough to make much of a difference. For hardcore slasher fans, Dead Tone may be worth a look for the violent kills, but everyone else may want to pass.
After playing a harmless prank phone call that ends up unknowinglycontacting a serial killer, a group of friends at a remote mansion tryto survive from the killer's vicious wrath.This turned out to be a fairly enjoyable, if routine, slasher effortthat manages to come with a pretty fair amount of pluses and negatives.The kills are brutal, but come off as familiar and repetitive while thetotal quantity could've been upped significantly as there's not a lottotal in here, the killer's pretty frightening yet doesn't really haveany motive at all, and the prank phone call game they play is justutterly retarded and serves very little point of interest as to whyit's something that goes over as such a hit with the crowd nor why it'ssomething they play to begin with. As usual, the crowd of friends grateon the nerves very easily, yet that makes the brutal kills all the morefun, and once the killer shows up at the house the stalking in thelarge Gothic mansion becomes incredibly fun. Pretty even throughout,and becomes downright decent overall.Rated R: Graphic Language, Graphic Violence, Nudity, a mild sex sceneand drug use.
This movie has a quite good promising concept for a genre movie. It's aslasher in which lots of people are getting killed randomly by a serialkiller. Like many genre movies before the movie uses phone-calls as itsmain concept. It's something which always works out well forhorror/thriller movies. Nothing wrong with the phone-class buteverything else about the movie is just way below par.I purely watch these kind of movies because of Rutger Hauer. Eventhough the movies are always horrible, his presence still gives themovies always something special. But like always, his role is far toosmall. Perhaps if he was the main lead the movie would still had beenmore bearable. It now is as if he plays in a totally different moviehimself and has nothing to do with the main plot-line of the movie.Like his scenes were shot at a totally different phase of production. Ibet he never ever even met most of the other actors and crew membersinvolved with the movie.One of the movie its problem are its characters. The movie is aslasher, so of course it features a bunch of university students,played of course by a bunch of actors who are close to- or even olderthan 30 years already. None of them are however likable or memorable.They are basically all the same and a bunch of typical stereotypes. Idon't even know who all these characters were and what their nameswere. There are just too many characters in it and most of them arejust asking to be killed.The movie its story also just doesn't ever seem to get off the ground.The first halve of the movie is filled with many false scares. Way toomany. The scare moments of the movie because of this start to becomereally ineffective. It even makes the movie more comical like at timesthan an horror movie. Not sure if this was the point of it all. It wasBrian Hooks first and as of yet only directed movie. Besides that healso played the main lead and served as a producer and writer for themovie. He's obviously not the most talented person around in thebusiness.When the movie becomes more of a slasher and horror/thriller movie themovie becomes more watchable to watch for the genre fans, despite beingformulaic and predictable with it all. No, it's just not the mostexciting or scary genre movie around but there are also definitelyworse of out there. The genre fans should be able to appreciate some ofthe gore and violence of the movie.The movie soon however starts to get worse again as it heads toward itsending, when the movie is trying to be clever by trowing a couple oftwists (what else is new?), which are just too far out there and don'twork out well for the movie as a whole.5ive/10enhttp://bobafett1138.blogspot.com/
This wasn't really a very good movie. There were lots of implausibleand predictable things that happened during the course of thefilm...but I think that most of the reviewers are missing the point ofwhy this movie should be enjoyed by a wide audience. THIS MOVIE WASPRODUCED BY MAGIC JOHNSON! Isn't that enough to inspire us all to checkout this film? A film produced by a former NBA star doesn't come alongevery day, you know. Beautifully stupid kids in a big house gettingslashed by an axe wielding psycho. Every clichÃ© trotted out for us togroan over. Teen sex. And it was all produced by MAGIC JOHNSON! I can'tsay enough about this movie! Teen drug use! College hijinx! And it wasall produced by MAGIC JOHNSON! Yippeeee!
As a fan of horror films, I seek out anything in the genre from bigbudget horrors to low budget indie ones... I have a particular likingfor teen slashers though (and no, I'm not particularly young ormale!)which this film falls into the category of. I found this film tobe quite entertaining for what it was, decent acting, good camera worketc. Nothing new or innovative in the way the killer dispatches hisvictims, but the identity of the killer, for me anyway, was notimmediately obvious. One complaint I did have is that in places,everything was so dark I couldn't see what was going on. I also feelthat Rutger Hauer's character was wasted but that's probably because Iam a fan of his and would have liked to have seen him on screen longer.Otherwise a decent effort.
Standard horror/slasher movie in every way. A group of cocky teens gettogether for a party and they get killed. Nothing to distinguish thisfrom a million other movies just like it.Except for one sequence: when the killer first arrives at the party,there are quite a few unnamed characters for him to mow through beforewe get down to all the clichÃ©d chase/hide/death sequences. So it has alittle bit higher body count.The premise is that the kids are playing a game where you have to callsomeone and prank them. The object is to keep them on the phone for 75seconds. They dial a serial killer and he comes to kill them. The twistis that the killer is one of the kids whose family was killed whensomeone was playing the very same game. It has a somewhat open endingthat looks like the killer survives.I only watched this because I liked the actress in this movie who alsoplayed Suzanne Somers in the Three's Company TV movie. After seeingthis, though, I think I'll skip the rest of her work.
This movie was actually a lot of fun, if poorly acted at times. If you're looking for something in the slasher genre, you could do a lot worse than this one. Great for killing a couple of hours on a lazy afternoon - especially if you have bills to pay or laundry to fold. It's a perfect brain-candy accompaniment to that kind of a day.
Everything about this movie is standard stuff. Except for a few points.First, the killer in the first five minutes doesn't seem to have muchmotivation. Second, there are some really strange scenes. There are twoscenes back to back that seemed to exist to promote condom use. Italmost came across like it was product placement, although the idea mayhave been to insert a moral into the movie. Third, some of thecharacters are nearly offensive in how stereotypical they are. There'sa gay character that exists to talk in a stereotyped fey voice. Thereare two black guys who talk and behave in a stereotyped "black guy"style.There's nothing compelling about the movie, but aside from thesethings, there's also nothing worth looking for.
This movie seems like it is going to be great! I love horror/scary films. cant wait for it to come in the mail :D I dont understand why its a direct to DVD movie it seems worthy from the previews Ive seen and the cast seems solid!
