DVD Review: Heebie Jeebies

If you're going to put the tagline "Scarier Than Hell" on your DVD cover art, then you'd better try to make it so. If Hell is as scary as Heebie Jeebies, then it's no big whup. The film deals with a young woman who has prophetic dreams about her friends dying. Since she has a habit of her dreams coming true, she decides to have them all come out to a dilpidated old farmhouse so she can protect them from their imminent demise. Interspersed throughout the movie are little "dream" segments that are like little movies in themselves. They're each actually better than the movie as a whole. The film was a little grainy and the sound was a little low, but nothing to really complain about, I mean it is a B-movie. One thing I did like, I did like the twist at the end. It was creative at least. I think this film would have worked better as a Creepshow-type of anthology because like I said, the shorts weren't bad. This film suffered from a flow problem, it just wasn't smooth. Hopefully the directors, Doug Evans and Michael Hawkins-Burgos, used this as a learning experience and will only get better, because the shorts show their talent. Also has a funny blooper reel on the DVD. I'll give it *** out of *****. Same score as Star Wars, for 150 million dollars less!
