Reviews - What do customers think about Hangmans Curse (2 DVD)?
Poor presentation Dec 10, 2006
When I orginally got this movie I thought it was going to be a horror movie. Maybe a B horror film at it's worst. This movie would have been ok if I was watching it on an "Afternoon Special" and I was 13 years old again at it's best. I also didn't think that this movie would have had Christian undercurrents as well. It would have been ok if it would have said that on the back of the DVD and I would not have watched it. I was very disappointed in this movie.
Hangman's Curse Good Movie PG-13 Aug 22, 2006
Abel Frye, a troubled teen accused of stabbing a young girl to death, committed suicide in what is, ten years later, known as the `forbidden wing'. Ten years later, students at Rogers High School believe the spirit of the tormented teen returns, as students on the football team begin to see hallucinations of the dead pupil. Nate and Sarah Springfield and their two teenage children go undercover to solve the mystery claiming the students in the school with a deadly force that can only end in tragedy, after finding out you can not annihilate what you cannot come across.
This high school thriller has an important message underneath its mystery, and has a positive outcome viewers can all enjoy.
I enjoyed this movie and its conflict, as well as the bravery of the two undercover teenagers. This movie is rated PG-13 for elements of violence, terror, and brief drug material.
Hangman's Curse Aug 12, 2006
Not a bad movie, but unfortunately, it doesn't convey the ideals that the book conveys. At least not as strong as the book. In the book, the kids are never in disagreement with their parents ideals, while in the movie they are. You would never know it's based on a Christian book, until maybe the last scene.
Abel Frye! Abel Frye! Abel Frye! Jul 18, 2006
I went into this movie with low expectations. I was just hoping that it would keep me interested and for the most part it did. There are certain sections where the acting is dismal and Frank Peretti is way over the top but funny (as a mix of Adam Sandler and Christopher Lloyd!). What I liked though was how it kept you guessing as to what was really going on at Rogers High School. I enjoyed Elisha and Elijah as a sort of Spy Kids meets Scooby Doo detectives but did believable job. All of the kids seemed like typical high school kids with their whatever-attitudes. I did guess who was behind everything about 55 minutes into the movie but still found it interesting how it was done. If this was a regular movie, I would have rated it lower, but for a Christian movie (where there really isn't a lot of good ones), it was enjoyable and even slightly creepy near the end (don't want to give anything away though but you might start thinking something is on you!). Also, I checked this out from the library, so it was free, which also helps. I also think that the Christian overtones were not in your face as Elisha and Elijah use their actions more than words to show their faith. I am also glad for a logical ending more than an unbelievable supernatural ending. I also enjoyed the scene in the beginning with the class discussion about prayer in school. A very good point. I have not read the book, but enjoyed the movie despite flaws. If you have a chance, go ahead and check it out. There is no cursing, although you get to hear Frank Peretti say: "A chemical booty call."
Slightly disapointing, but not at all bad. Jul 15, 2006
I love this movie, but having also read the book, I'm slightly dissapointed. They left a few things out, that I thought was rather important. But all in all I thought the film was absolutely fabulous. So if your looking for gripping movie..... this would be it.
