After Dark Horrorfest: The Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations and Dying Breed

Category: Opinions

Well, yesterday was the last day of the After Dark Horrorfest, and I ended up seeing two movies, The Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations and Dying Breed. The two totaled 3 hours of fairly unfortunate cinema…

The Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations tells the story of a fellow who is somehow able to “jump” back in time. He lays in a bathtub of ice-water, goes into a little trance, and he’s a time traveler. As long as he doesn’t try to change anything, as long as he simply observes the past, he wakes up safe and sound in his present. However, when he goes back in time to solve his girlfriend’s murder at about the time of its occurrence in her bedroom, he accidentally runs into her sister. Rather than let sister discover the body like she’s supposed to, he tells her to wait in the car while he investigates the house. It’s a very small change, but it’s apparently enough to start a chain of seven murders over ten years.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t really see The Butterfly Effect, let alone The Butterfly Effect 2, but I seriously doubt that seeing them could have saved The Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations. I could jump back in time to find out, to watch the previous two first, but then my entire family would probably end up murdered.

Dying Breed tells the story of four Aussies who venture out into the Tasmanian wilderness in the hopes of photographing the said to be extinct Tasmanian tiger. Now, I don’t care to write any more.

Dying Breed is just stupid gore porn. The four are terrorized and murdered by in-bred sadistic cannibals that time forgot. Oh, wait, they keep one woman alive to rape every so often, whenever they need a baby to boost their population. Really, I don’t mind a bunch of killing, but rape totally bothers me.

So, that’s it, six of eight horror movies in three days. My bizarre adventure is over.

    There was a #3?!?! WTF? I didn’t think #1 was interesting enough to stay awake through to the end.

    I have the first Butterfly Effect on DVD… it isn’t Oscar material, but it was fairly entertaining. There’s an alternate ending on this disc which gives the movie an even darker feel if you watch it.
