The Curse of Downers Grove (2015)


The Curse of Downers Grove is a pretty dull and toothless teen horror flick that only caught my attention due to Bret Easton Ellis being on script duties. It has an intriguing set-up involving the titular curse that somehow gets sidetracked in favour of a story about a girl being tormented by an obsessed schoolmate. The performances are terribly run-of-the-mill and the direction flat and uninspired. Barely anything about this movie registers. Ellis’ cynical words sometimes pop through but I get the sense this was either changed heavily from his original script or he simply took the job for the money. One big slab of meh.
