Nothing Left to Fear (Review)

M2207514So the story goes that guitarist Slash from Guns N Roses fame likes watching horror movies so much he decided to produce one.

Nothing Left to Fear is the result, and if this is a genuine reflection of Slash’s preferences, then he likes terrible horror movies.

Dan and his picture frame promotional shot worthy family find a warm welcome as they arrive in the sleepy town where Dan will soon serve as pastor. Indeed the serving pastor and locals all go out of their way to help them settle in. No one seems to notice that the friendly smiles change a little when the backs are turned.

Within days it is like the family is part of the community. Once daughter is already being circled by Noah, the local brooding male, and the other is having nightmares involving sheep and mud (so does my wife actually)…

Why do the locals seem to have two faces? Are there ulterior motives for inviting them here? Why is the so much cheap Grudge 2 style CGI on display here? Surely Slash kept some of those Sweet Child o Mine royalties aside to pay for decent effects?

There is Nothing Left to Fear is all too literal a title, as there really is nothing here to be shocked or appalled by. No gore, no scares, no suspense, kills or nudity. It is as worrying as a lollypop and as credible (and seemingly as popular) as a Slash solo album.

Final Rating – 4.5 / 10. Amazingly Slash cannot even oust Rob Zombie from his perch as worst of former rock musicians turned lousy filmmakers.¬†After this I realise why you don’t want anyone to see your face though…

About OGR

While I try to throw a joke or two into proceedings when I can all of the opinions presented in my reviews are genuine. I don't expect that all will agree with my thoughts at all times nor would it be any fun if you did, so don't be shy in telling me where you think I went wrong... and hopefully if you think I got it right for once. Don't be shy, half the fun is in the conversation after the movie.
