The sixth review comes from episode 3 of Bitches of Horror where we reviewed the slasher film Punishment, which is also known as Down the Road
Punishment: A group of college students escape their troubled lives but only to find themselves fighting for their lives from a revenge seeking mad man.
I ws very dissappointed watching Punishment, mainly because on the front cover it said, move over Jason Voorhees and I thought it would be a really good slasher, but no, Jason can stay right where he is. The bad guy in this one is not a very interesting character and his motive is also pretty vague and uninteresting.
The characters were very annoying and making such stupid decisions. I am very forgiving with character making really stupid decisions, but in this one it was just too much. The one good thing I can say about this one is that the gore effects were really great and that saved the film from becoming a total fricking trainwreck. The surprisingly high grading is due to the amazing SFX and nothing else.
Grading: 4 out of 10.
