THE SEAMSTRESS

The Seamstress Movie Review

Allie (Kailin See The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford) and her friends go to an island to find her father. While there they come across the curse of The Seamstress, a woman who was wrongly accused of torturing and killing children, and as a result, tortured and killed by an angry mob herself. This movie starts off fairly well, with flashback scenes and a bit of gore.

Like this

Once the group gets to the island, however, the movie just falls apart. Terrible dialogue and inexpiable actions on the behalf of the group drag this movie down fast and it never recovers. They actually do a good job building up the suspense leading to the end of the movie, but again, it just falls apart into a series of twists that make little to no sense at all. One of the few bright spots is that horror legend Lance Henriksen (Pumpkinhead and tons more horror and science fiction movies) brings his typical awesomeness, albeit toned down a bit, as he seemed to phone this one in. The Seamstress looks pretty cool at times but the scenes with her, and the death scenes in general, are edited and cut so fast that it is hard to tell what is going on. Overall this is a mess of a movie that I cannot recommend.
