Kristy Review


When a college girl who is alone on campus over the Thanksgiving break is targeted by a group of outcasts, she must conquer her deepest fears to outwit them and fight back.

Kristy (2014) is an American thriller horror movie that is also known as Random (2014) and was filmed in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Oliver Blackburn (Donkey Punch (2008), Wonderful World (1998), Vinyan (2008)) did an incredible job with the effective staging and claustrophobic sets along with filming the jump scare scenes and chase scenes displaying his talent. The movie did not contain much blood or suspense but did have a few good thrills and great special effects. The movie is a hit or miss, depending on your state of mind while watching the film.

Justine ( Haley Bennett - The Equalizer (2014), Marley & Me (2008), Music and Lyrics (2007), The Hole (2009)) majors in poetry at Verse college and remains on campus alone after everyone leaves for Thanksgiving break. Justine’s boyfriend Aaron ( Lucas Till - X-Men: First Class (2011), X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), Walk the Line (2005), Stoker (2013)) left college for Thanksgiving and thought Justine’s roommate Nicole would be with her. Nicole flew to Aspen leaving Justine to meet an unfortunate evening. The only other person on campus is Wayne (Mathew St. Patrick - Six Feet Under (2001), General Hospital (1963), War (2007), Alien Raiders (2008)) who is the security guard. There are a lot of things happening as the search for missing teenager Heather Price continues. Justine decides to borrow one of her friends (who is not there) BMW to make a quick drive to the convenience store. A person wearing a faded hoodie named Violet ( Ashley Greene - The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (2012), Twilight (2008), The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 (2011), The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009)) intimidates Justine and later tries to run her off the road. Fast forward and we see Violet entering Justine’s room telling her that she has everything, and she see’s Wayne being murdered by a second person wearing as hoodie as she runs for help. The people wearing the hoodies are antagonists that are filming everything they are doing to Justine because she is a believer of God.

The actors did not give an outstanding performance, but it was a good performance that served the movie well. The film displays the scare scenes tremendously well-leading viewers to have a few jumps here and there. The movie was a great watch although it is a cliche to You’re Next (2011) because it was a mean thriller showing Kristy fighting to save her life making her into a fighting machine. We have seen everything that this movie offers but the movie had enough going on to make it stand out from the rest. I gave this movie a five because it had huge plot holes and minimal character development.
