This is a review of the movie Cornered. Steve Guttenberg was a mainstay of movies in the 1980s. Constantly surfacing, he managed to move from comedies and into drama. Imagine my surprise when he showed up in a horror movie! Cornered tells the story of a convenience store owner, employees and customers as they deal with a serial killer. The rub is the killer is targeting convenience stores. Through a weekly poker game, the horror movie is set in motion with an expected, but an surprising elemental ending.
Death scenes – Almost all of the death scenes are well done, especially the “chilly” one. Are they bloody? Some. Are they scary? Yes.
Ending – By the time the ending rolls around you’ll have an enjoyable laugh.
Pacing – Sometimes the movie just slows down to a stop. This is more noticeable in the scenes between murders and sort of irritates you.
Cornered is a great movie to watch with a fantastic ending. You won’t waste your time watching it and you’ll even recommend it to other people.
