“In the tradition of ‘The Evil Dead’, The 13th Sign is the future of horror.”

Maverick Entertainment has finally inadvertently succeeded at doing what they haven’t done for years; make me laugh. If The 13th Sign is the future of horror (as Maverick’s synopsis lays out), then I get the feeling that I’ll be reviewing television real soon.

If you gave me a few thousand dollars, an outdated DV-cam, and a college campus to roam free on, I could make The 13th Sign for you in ten days. I say that having only produced a short film for health class in order to get out of a final exam. 13th Sign is amateurish, unentertaining, and boring. In fact, there is not a single good thing that I can say about it.

The extremely convoluted plot has a young woman going back to the small village where her father committed a murder-suicide that left sixteen people dead when she was only eight. Soon enough there’s talking, a town full of demons, a guy who is apparently evil because he has black make-up smeared on his face, more talking, and a couple poorly choreographed and filmed fight scenes.

This was actually distributed as part of two-pack with The Revolting Dead earlier this month. I had to debate myself for quite a while as to whether or not to match Revolting Dead’s rating or give it a .5, but then I looked at my VCR’s clock and saw that the movie is less than seventy-five minutes. A seventy-five minute movie, which is already short, being boring to boot? Yeah, .5 it is.

I hate to keep giving these Maverick Entertainmented-distributed films such bad reviews, as many are done by young filmmakers with little in the way of resources, but films like these are testaments to why some people don’t blindly rent anymore.
DVD: While the UK version is apparently packed with extras, this one has nothing.
