Unhallowed Ground Review
Synopsis:A group of privileged students spend a night patrolling the prestigious Dhoultham school. However, it soon turns into the worst night of their lives as they face off against burglars, supernatural spirits and a deeper, darker evil.
Unhallowed Ground (2015) is a low budget UK English thriller horror movie that had a beautiful abstract cover photo. First-time full-length movie director Russell England did not do an amazing job executing this screenplay. The movie had a nice screenplay but way too many plot holes with too many dragged on slower paced moments. I wanted to close my eyes at times when not looking at the time, but I kept myself together and was happy I sat through to see the ending.
Six private school students from North London spends the night patrolling the creepy grounds of the historic Dhoultham School that was built in the 17th century. They are patrolling the grounds because it is required of them to prove that they have basic military training to enter the British Army. The teenagers complete their tasks as required as the time passes and soon they began to see the lights flickering, slamming doors and ghosts figures. The teenagers are frustrated and scared but soon have to deal with two burglars. The burglars are on a mission to steal the numerous priceless historical documents from a vault in the school. The teenagers are scared out of their minds and decide that they have to escape the school before the night ends. The supernatural occurrences are becoming more powerful, and they are not together. What will happen as they try to escape and what happened to the burglars? The movie deals with four students being offered as a sacrifice for others to live, and now it is time for more students to be sacrificed.
The CGI appears to be from another century because the quality was horrible. There is not much blood shown in this movie so gore fans will be disappointed at that aspect of the film and also not many deaths. The actors could not have done a better job with their performances. The twist was unexpected but loved very much and is the reason I gave the movie a four. Like most movies, I got angry when the characters walk into dark places as though they are invincible after hearing strange noises. Do not see this movie because it was not worth it, and there are better things to do like watch a rerun of one of your favorite TV series.
