Lucas with Tom, his neglectful old brother dwells alone in the rundown home right after the passing of their mom, who grabbed them away from the abusive father. They played the “game” that was called Slapface, which involved them slapping the face of each other aggressively, and the “friends” of Lucas were Moriah, Donna, and Rose are the trio female who are all bullies.
One day, Lucas was forced by this trio to explore the vacant house with his trio friends for “stalking” Moriah, and whom he had a crush on. Lucas encountered the monster known as Virago, and Lucas is friends with it over the path of several days.
Initially, the movie has an odd title. It made sense, but, given the movie’s contents, it was just a lousy film title. The movie is pointless and slow paced. The storyline that was told in the “Slapface” was one that had been lacking a suitable structure. This movie felt somewhat random and chaotic. The fact that its narration was sleep-inducingly sluggish did not really help to sweeten a deal.
The acting routine in the movie was actually good, particularly from the young lead star, because he actually carried the film quite well. Its monster was sort of having a lukewarm experience. The violent aspects were entertaining enough, but the fact that this befriended a kid had been fun too. However, the entire movie was just bland.
In the movie, the monster was shrouded always in shadowy shade and therefore, you will never really get the proper look, like the effects, makeup, design, etc. and it fails on that account. If you’re a newcomer and a pre-teen to a horror genre generally, then you could see how the movie would be categorized as a horror movie. However, for the lifelong terror aficionado, then this movie was a plain walk in a park. With regards to entertainment, they just dropped the movie ball too early on in an ordeal and did not recover the course. The movie was weak, so you can settle to look for something else that is really worth to watch.
