This was a great movie although the house itself is too modern for the premise of this story. I love the idea of this story...mainly because I like filling in holes and trying to "see" what the writer is trying to say. As for the main characters, I HATED Val Kilmer to the utmost which is where the writers were trying to go. Val Kilmer's character is the antagonist in the present as well as 100 years ago. I really enjoyed Ving Rhames;s performance - this story was his story and should have been told from his perspective.As for the rest of the characters, they were really much too <more>
comfortable in a "stranger's" home, way too comfortable. In the end, as Ving Rhames put all the pieces together the fill in the blank thought it would be fabulous to write him out...too bad...Rule One: Never kill the Source or the one who knows all.Nothing is perfect, but this story was ruined by "a lot of ego, greed and stupidity". Most true artwork lives a tragic life and "7 Below" is not exempt. Where can I get the Director's Cut? Also, where are the features feature on the DVD? Has the Editor of the final cut been haunted into oblivion yet? Were the accents on "Courtney" and the "Dr." REALLY needed?
Ving gave a Oscar award winning performance as Jack. He should have gotten the, biggest creep or the Most creepiest award.Peeping through holes in the wall. Running through the room with a bed sheet on. Laughing with a fiendish laughter. Or maybe the most out of place award what is a actor notorious for playing crooks and convicts doing in a secluded rural country house. look at how the people act non nonchalantly. people dieing. This movie is a modern day Plan 9 from outer space. Ed Wood would have been proud of this movie. This movie ranks up their with attack of the killer tomatoes. <more>
Explain to me how a nine year old boy could kill a grown man with a knife by stabbing him one time, unless he hit him directly in the heart or neck, but steal seemed like he could have put up a fight.
