Movie Review: WTF!

WTF! is the debut feature from director Peter Herro from a script he co-wrote with Christopher Centanni and Adam Buchalter.  Kyle Zingler produced alongside executive producers Steve Parker and Jody Wheeler.  Callie Ott, Sarah Agor, Andrea Hunt, Ben Norris, Johnny James Fiore, Nick Reilly and Adam Foster star as the unfortunate group of friends.

WTF! follows the survivor of a mass murder on a relaxing trip with six close friends, when her nightmare threatens to begin again. Three years ago, twenty-two year old girl-next-door Rachel (Ott) barely survived a brutal massacre that left her friends in pieces. Time has passed, Rachel has moved on, but unfortunately history has a way of repeating itself.  Her close friends are spending spring break in a secluded house in the woods, and they have cordially invited her to join. Little does she realize that another bloodbath will be showing up as plus one. Once Rachel and her friends arrive at the cabin, the partying, sex, and terror begins.

This fun horror-slasher/psycho-thriller starts out with a great WTF! moment that hints at the tragedy that happened to Rachel that left her scarred for life. All horror movies should have a crazy opening scene that sets everything up and WTF! has one of those. After that crazy opening scenes, the movie then fast forwards where Rachel and a group of her friends head out to a cabin in the woods for some sex, drugs and rock and roll.

They’re all thinking they’re going to have a good time when they arrive but wouldn’t you know it something bad happens and it doesn’t take long for things to get really messy. The rock and roll part is quickly replaced by a slasher who is sneaking their way around and is violently taking out all of Rachel’s friends one by one until the shocking reveal that you definitely do not see coming. You’ll get a kick out of this sick and twisted reveal!

Bottom line is, I had a blast watching WTF! which is one of the better indie slashers to come along in several years. Sure, we get plenty of “cabin in the woods” type of movies and that’s really the only flaw WTF! has, well that and the fact that Perez Hilton has an unnecessary cameo in it. Why? Well, to make things better there is a cool cameo by my pal Shawn C. Phillips so be on the lookout for him because he adds a little humor to the mix. It’s always fun to see Shawn pop up in a horror movie.

Anyway, I love a good horror-slasher and this one delivers the goods with lots of blood and gore to boot. For an indie slasher the special effects are extremely impressive and the kill scenes are a lot of fun to watch! Peter Herro did a really good job with his directorial debut that’s complimented nicely by those cool SFX and some great acting. Indie films can be hit or miss when it comes to SFX and acting but this one delivers the goods. The movie will be available nationwide on all major VOD platforms and Digital HD beginning August 1st. The MOD physical release of WTF! will be available exclusively from Amazon.com. Be sure you give this one a watch because fun shall be had!
