Otis (2008) Review
Written by: Poppascotch
All in all Otis was a great little exercise in what the sub genre's future could look like (but probably without so much humour though).
At one moment, it could be relentless and gory but at the same time, issues such as reason, discussions of societal relevance, and responsibility get glanced over as if they appeared unintentional.
Otis takes on these issues with the depth of the kiddie pool rather than the diving end with a spring board, but of course that doesn't mean the film still can't be enjoyed.
A fresh concept, a kick ass soundtrack, and a good cast deserves merits for showing love to a genre that most people just flood the market place with garbage.
Director Tony Krantz almost made a camp horror classic... almost. All he had to do was decide if the film was going to be a dark horror of a comedy. He couldn't decide and thusly failed at both.
