I just watched "Dead Man's Curve" and "Taboo" on On Demand yesterday. Here's my reviews.
Dead Man's Curve: This had the same premis as "Dead Man On Campus" 2 students team up to kill their college roomate (and make it look like a suicide) in order to take advantage of the new university policies that state if your roomate kills himself, you get an automatic 4.0 for the semester. The movie starred Matthew Lillard (Scream, Wing Commander, Scooby-Doo, et al), Kerry Russell and Dana Delaney, who played the univerity counselor. This was a little bit darker than the comedy that was Dead Man on Campus and Matthew Lillard was almost scary during some of his plots and scheming. All in all a good movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it but it's probably because I love ML.
Taboo: It's your typical revenge story. 6 students have a party one night and play a game of Taboo. No, not the board game with the buzzer. This game is done with note cards that may or may not reveal your deepest desires and your ugliest sexual sins. Each note card has a question typed on it. The cards are all face down and each person takes a card (without letting anyone else see what it is) and they right down their answer. All the cards are then placed back on the table face-down and then each person draws a different card and reads the question and the answer aloud.
One year later, they all have a reunion and one of the student's house who is now engaged to one of the other students. It's New Year's Eve and it's just the 6 of them celebrating. A mysterious package arrives with 6 note cards. On the note cards are 6 accusations that match up with the questions and answers from the year before.
Now, someone on IMDB gave a comment and said it was horrible. But I really really liked it. I only recognized one actor (Nick Stahl from Disturbing Behavior) but I thought it was very well done. It has you guessing the whole time about who's responsible. Just when you think you've figured it out, they throw another wrench into it. I love Nick Stahl and hope to see him in a lot more things in the future. He seems to be really good at the thrillers so hopefully, he'll do a lot more of those.
