THE TASK
Synopsis: Contestants on a Fear Factor-like reality show begin to die gruesomely at the hands of pissed-off spirits.
Director: Simon Fellows
Stars: Texas Battle, Alexandra Staden, Jonas Talkington, Amara Karan
Complex says: The Task seems to be the most scatterbrained of this year’s lineup, which isn’t always a bad thing in horror. That doesn’t mean it’s without any frustratingly generic elements: The young victims-to-be cover the complete “token” spectrum (black guy, gay guy, hot chick, etc.), and the reality show set-up is rather gimmicky. Based off the trailer, though, there’s enough disturbing imagery and all-out mayhem to warrant a viewing. Perhaps that’s just because clowns never fail to scare the piss into our pants.
