DailyView: Day 288, Movie 405
I found another unknown film on Netflix tonight and I wondered if it was going to be as good as yesterday’s The Girl Next Door. Spoiler alert: it is not.
US Census Bureau agent Steve Kady (Jeremy Sisto) arrived in the small town of Rockwell Falls and found a bizarre fact. For the last 100 years, the population of Rockwell Falls has been 436. Steve was beginning to be treated as more than a guest, and, as the mystery deepened, Steve was shocked at the depth of the conspiracy he had discovered.
I never got into this movie. The look felt cheap. The acting was, at best, adequate. Jeremy Sisto was constantly over acting. It felt like a film you might find on Sy-Fy or Oxygen.
Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit appeared as Deputy Bobby Caine.
There was a lot of silliness in the movie and it did not feel scary or tense. The whole pop. 436 thing was explained in the most ridiculous way and it made no sense for why the people of the town did what they did. They also stated that it was God’s will to keep Rockwell Falls at teh number 436. No real reason. Just because.
And you had better not get to 437.
A real waste of time. I did not find this enjoyable at all. I disliked this one a lot.
