Blu-ray Review: '247°F'
Steam room getting a tad hot and you can't get out? That’s the premise of the new to Blu-ray horror outing "247°F," out Oct. 23 from Anchor Bay Home Entertainment. The hot rocks with water review steams below!
Cast: Scout Taylor-Compton, Christina Ulloa, Tyler Mane
Director: Levan Bakhia
Runtime: 99 minutes
Release Company: Anchor Bay Home Entertainment
The Flick: Even from the box itself I was skeptical about a flick involving co-eds getting trapped in a steam room – always go with your gut. Even though this one says it was based on true events, "247°F" unfolds about as fast and interesting as "My Dinner With Andre." Bad acting (Taylor-Compton gets on the nerves very quickly!), bad storytelling (the reveals of how things came to be are dull as dirt!) and just an overall bad movie, Director Levan Bakhia should earn an award for the most mundane horror thriller to ever not grace the screen. (And what the hell is Tyler Mane doing in this drivel?!)
Best Feature: I will say this – Director Levan Bakhia is consistent. He provides a virtually unlistenable commentary track that’s as equally dim and uninspiring as the flick he helmed – way to keep it real!
Best Hidden Gem: That you get to see actress Christina Ulloa in a bathing suit – yay, great, Christmas has come early. (Sarcasm alert!)
Worth the Moola: If you’re actually purchasing this, you’re really hard up for horror fun. Don't let the scary box imagery fool you – it’s not horror just because it’s horrible.
