Movie Review-Gravestoned

By Shanda Block/entertainment editor

Two words describe Gravestoned best: huge disappointment.

The movie, which has had screenings in Dallas, Houston and Austin, kills an hour and a half of any viewer’s time with its ghastly amount of wasted time showing cheerleaders acting like strippers, idiot “stoners” and obviously purposeful IQ droppings of the entire cast.

The movie starts out with a director trying to find his perfect cast and perfect arm prop. Two characters, Shark and Coltrane, whose names aren’t revealed until much later in the movie, provide the director with just that.

There’s actually no deciphering who’s Shark and who’s Coltrane. One is hired at the beginning to find this prop, and then the other appears from nowhere to help.

Gravestoned is so hard to pay attention to that it’s difficult to catch on to most characters’ names.

On the flipside, some of the characters such as a cheerleader named Nicole and a boy named Chase, had their names repeated so often that viewers will want to plug their ears.

Basically, Shark and Coltrane can’t seem to satisfy the director with a real enough looking arm prop, so in desperation, they hire a man to find them a real body so they can decapitate its arm.

When presented the arm, the director is more than pleased. It almost makes for an interesting movie until that point, but everything after is an eyesore. 

The rest of the story focuses on the moronic cast the director hires, the cast’s stupidity, the director’s Scottish terrier and numerous killings because of the same mistakes by character after character.

There is so little effort put into this movie, it makes it not worth watching.

The only audience type this movie will appeal to is found in the title: stoned.

The movie hits DVD shelves Nov. 3.
