Perkins' 14 (2009)

I feel like I am back from the depths after travelling most of yesterday. After watching West Virginia finish off Texas and today the Steelers beat the Eagles, it was time to play catch-up. My first review of the day is another entry from After Dark Horrorfest – Perkins' 14 from 2009.
Plot/ In the small town of Stone Cove, Maine, deputy sheriff Dwayne Hopper is on the night shift at the police station. He discovers that one of the prisoners in the holding cell is Ronald Perkins, a local pharmacist and a suspect in the disappearance of 14 children over the past 10 years, including Hopper's young son.
In the beginning, this flick started out decent and definitely had something going for it. Honestly, it the storyline was fresh and interesting, the gore and effects were solid and enjoyable, and the cinematography and direction worked really well. Unfortunately, some of the acting was stale with an amateur feel, the scripting leaves holes everywhere and some of the characterization does not work. In the end, it is not the best horror flick, but it is also not the worst. I grabbed this one as part of a set and it cost me very little and I enjoyed it even with the flaws. If you are like me, you should enjoy it as well.
