Review: Barricade

By Poort for MovieAddictz.com

A horror movie with the former star of Will and Grace … Could it be any good?

Barricade is about the Shade family who are off for a cabin retreat after the death of their mother/wife. What is supposed to be a relaxing holiday is soon to become a nightmare. Terrence Shade (Eric McCormack) is plagued by weird visions and black-outs and is struggling to keep his family safe. When all of them show signs of getting sick and the cabin is getting snowed in, it get’s very tough to handle it all.

The setting is really beautiful. A cabin in the woods (where have we heard that before?) in the winter (and this too) isn’t original, but it does look good.The other visuals are beautiful too. The ghosts look good, but have little actual footage.

The story is quite decent. Although some things just don’t add up, the struggle of the main character is convincing. However, I couldn’t accept the side twists as they have no role in the story whatsoever. All they do is confuse us. As for suspense… It’s there and I can’t really comment on it. Nothing spectacular, but it does get you to watch the entire movie. The movie looks good, the suspense is there and yet I am not excited… The reason is that some things are just too obvious for horror fans. The clue is easy to comprehend halfway through Barricade and therefore I cannot give it a high rating.

Conclusion: not the greatest horror movie, but decent enough for a snowy day.
