How high was Agustin when he committed himself to producing this movie?

That’s the question I kept asking myself throughout The Dawn. The man with no last name gained some praise from me for directing, writing, and producing 3 Play a while back. When it came to his newest project The Dawn, Agustin likely wisely realized two things. First off, he’s not a horror director. Secondly, the project wasn’t really worthy of his time. So Agustin’s business partner Darryl Neverson directed this one, taking on Linwood D. Neverson as his semi-pseudonym. Or at least that’s how I think it played out. Maybe Darryl’s got a mentally challenged brother named Linwood that he handed the camera off to.

What strikes me as odd is that Linwood’s horror movie is similar to how I’d expect Agustin’s horror film to turn out. The Dawn is quite incompetent and features awful horror scenes. When it comes to the real-life-like conversations, though, the material presented is fantastic. Those positive elements of the film only linger for about a half hour. This leaves fifty painful minutes of horror and half-baked mystery to deal with after the good stuff’s passed.

The Dawn is a really difficult film to describe. It’s about a bunch of inner city college kids who, at the behest of their wacky Sociology professor, head up to a cabin in the remote forest for the weekend. The cast is the usual array of clichés, but the actors portraying them are great when given the opportunity to just have discussions like normal people. Whenever Linwood Neverson is forced to inject horror into The Dawn, it falls flat on its darkly shot face and sinks in the ground a few feet from the impact.

Take for example the opening scene, where the college students find a dead body in their hallway. There’s barely any commotion over it, and all the characters go on as if it never happened. There are also the horror scenes that require the poor kids to try and emote, which doesn’t work out well for them. Don’t forget about the randomly placed two-minute montage of prairie footage either. And then there’s the twist ending, which is just plain stupid.
DVD: Barebones.
