DVD Review: Do Not Disturb

Do Not Disturb is now available on DVD and it is probably a title you should avoid. It's just not that good. It's not bad enough to be able to enjoy with a group of friends and it's certainly not good enough to be worth your money.

From the box:

Holed up in a seedy hotel, Hollywood screenwriter Don Malek (Fright Night's Stephen Geoffreys) is scripting a diabolical plan for revenge. But instead of writing about a bloodthiursty serial killer, Don is doing the dirty work with his own hands. Tiffany Shepis (Cyrus) and Corey Haim (The Lost Boys) also star in this gritty, jolting thriller where no one is safe...and checkout time is sooner than you think. 

While it's great to see Stephen Geoffreys again even that can't save this movie.  In fact, I can say that the best part of "Do Not Disturb" is actually the performance by Tiffany Shepis who seems to be the only one taking this movie seriously and in turn delivers a great performance.

I can only assume that listing Corey Haim as a top billed cast member in this movie when he is on the screen for about 2 minutes and has absolutely no baring at all on the story, can only be to capitalize on his passing and get people to check out one of his final performances.  It's actually extremely distracting to see him on screen as he does not look to be in great health.

I just did not enjoy this movie  at all.  I didn't really understand the point of it or what it was trying to be.  It wasn't scary so the only thing that might make it a horror movie is that he kills people.  It feels more like a dark drama about this writer who is spiraling out of control.

I don't like not being able to praise indie films, especially horror, as I feel like the future of the genre I love will come from this group.  Unfortunately, I just didn't like this one.  Readers out there might love it, but myself, I just didn't enjoy it.

Do Not Disturb is on DVD (no features to speak of) now.
