Tmovie - Scared (2005)

Synopsis - IMDB
Photos - Google & BehindHollywood

A big group of freshman students go out of town. On the journey, their bus has to cross a creaky old river bridge which is the only way to get to the center of a dark forest. When the bus is halfway across, the bridge collapses and the bus falls deep into the river more than 50 meters from the surface. Nearly all the students are killed. The remaining students walk into the forest until they discover a mysterious, abandoned town. The students are cruelly murdered one by one. Only the survivor will be able to explain it all

I love horror/thriller movies; therefore, I really wanted to watch Scared. Asian horror movies have been re-made in Hollywood occassionally. Mostly from Japanese horror movies. But really recently, from a Thai movie, Shutter.

Scared is nothing but a glorified-gory, slashed, blood-filled movie.
Instead the movie showed a bunch of helpless students who ended up brainless escaping from this mass murderer. Why was he killing them? What was the reason?

The English subtitles on the dvd I got were hilarious. Whoever sub for the movie must have been drunk! The English translations for the characters name kept me laughing. One of them I could remember is Big Red. There were funnier ones, which I will have to come back and re-edit.

The movie dragged too much for me. What I disliked the most is the amount of potholes. The storyline was too weak. Instead of me being "scared," I was too busy lauging at the characters. Overall, I was very disappointed. I'm a fan of horror movies and wanted a good plot.
