Good concept - mixed execution

The concept was a pretty good one and the photography is decent. The film is hurt by poor dialogue and stiff performances all around. There's a good film in here, this just isn't the product we're provided.

9 / 10

Unique concept cinematically "beautiful" blood party

Great writing, camera work and actorsA bloody fun ride!

The mood of this movie creeps up on you then keeps your brain flickering until the endDon't forget to blink.

Celebrate this truly gutsy Canadian horror film.

Started out okay, but quickly turned to a muddy pile...

Well, I will say that the 2021 movie "Ditched" definitely started out quite alright and proved entertaining. But then when you get to the point where it is revealed what is actually going on, then the movie just lost all momentum for me and it become a pointless and laughable ordeal to sit through.

When I sat down in 2022 to watch this 2021 movie from writer and director Christopher Donaldson, then I didn't know what I was in for, aside from it being a horror movie. And that was essentially all that was needed to make me watch it.

But "Ditched" was a swing and a miss of a movie. What started out quite interesting quickly deflated and became a boring ordeal. But hey, I am sure that there is an audience out there somewhere for a movie such as this. I just, obviously, wasn't a part of the target audience. I am sure that the script was great on paper, but the transition to the screen just wasn't all that grand of an experience.

I will say that the acting performances in "Ditched" were adequate. Especially when taking into consideration that the movie had a small cast ensemble, took place in a very small and limited location, and the fact that the script went from being good to rubbish in a split second.

If you enjoy horror movies then "Ditched" is not one I would recommend you waste your time, money or effort on.

My rating of "Ditched" lands on a generous three out of ten stars, and that is mostly because of the production value that was put into the making of the movie.

Aesthetically Awesome

It's a neat, tight, smart little thriller, with an old school Hawks / Carpenter vibe, but with a meanspiritedness and hardbitten cynicism all its own. And DAMN that final sequence, the length of time it holds that final shot, is great.

Decent movie, with a warning to epileptic people.

It was better then i first expected, after watching the first 15 minutes i thought this movie would be a b-flick "trying" to be an a-flick.

It ended up being something in between, the story is good and mostly unpredictable.

There could have been some improvements on how broken car glass looks like on the side doors of a car, we all know it breaks in to a million pieces.

But what brings this movie down a bit is the hysterical lights flashing from the emergency vehicles wich penetrates my whole living room, the movie should be put out with a warning sticker to epileptical people, it's immense and to me just disturbing.

Aside from that i find it very watchable, especially for people who like the horror/mystery titles, with a bit of splatter to it!

And if there would be a second movie? Yes i would watch it, with sun glasses.
