Recently I’ve started to read a lot of Joe Bob Briggs’ famous Drive-In Reviews in the archives of his website. What separates Joe from pretty much every single critic out there is that he truly appreciates (or appreciated, since I’m not sure where he’s been lately) b-movies. If a movie’s going to get butchered by 99 critics, Joe Bob will be hand out that sole positive review that the director will forever clutch to his heart. And even in those rare moments where he gave a movie one star, he’d still close his review by saying “Joe Bob says check it out.”

Seeing as how I hope to one day be recognized as the Joe Bob Briggs of direct-to-video cinema, there’s a part of me that wants to be as positive as he is. Before I popped in Death Clique, I said to myself, “Okay Greg. This movie is not going to suck completely. You’re going to find something positive that takes your attention away the negatives. You can do it Greg!”

Lo and behold, I don’t even think Joe Bob could’ve derived enjoyment from this one.

A bunch of stupid teenagers head up to a cabin in the woods to celebrate the end of their high school days. Coinciding with their trip is the release of goth kid Bobby from state-care. At the start of the movie we saw Bobby murder his family. As you’d expect, when they get to the cabin a game of truth or dare presents a killer with the perfect opportunity to strike. Let the post-Scream horror bullhokey begin.

Even if I ignore the no-budget lighting and audio, there’s still nothing to like about Death Clique. Writer Monica Ortiz tries to make the audience care about the characters, but that didn’t work out well. Bickering, uninteresting sex, and more bickering is what the character development comprises of. By the finale came the film had completely lost me as a caring viewer. I can’t even tell you if I was surprised by the identity of the killer or not. I didn’t care fifteen minutes before, I didn’t care when he or she was finally revealed, and I certainly don’t care now.

Please never mention this movie to me again.
DVD: Barebones.
