The Task (2011)

Directed by Alex Orwell.  Written by Kenny Yakkel.  Starring Texas Battle, Alexandra Staden, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Marc Pickering and Victor McGuire.

Plot: a group of reality show contestants must survive the night in a haunted jail


I was pleasantly delighted with this movie.  Within twenty minutes we had humor, whole characters, a clown, rules and an actual plot line.  We even liked it more before people started dying because we didn’t want them to.  It’s a fun movie to watch and I found the premise interesting and the execution entertaining.

Now while DJ liked it, he didn’t like it as much as me.  He found some continuity errors (like how the guy tripped in blood and then minutes later had nothing on him) that ruined things for him.

We both recommend it though.  It was realistic and there was good dialogue, but the ending does leave a little to be desired.

My score: 65.  DJ’s score: 52.
