Watch Shrooms (2007) - Alternative Versions.
I am not surprised by the polarized opinions regarding this movie,
although I do think there is a lot of overreaction.
Shrooms is simply a decent little movie that seems promising when you
first begin to watch it, thanks in great part to solid direction
tricks. However, eventually it fails to deliver because of a very, very
weak story and a failed attempt at defying genres.
When you first start to watch, the movie grabs your attention with what
seems like good characters and the remote set is also well showcased.
You get some threads of character development and the story flows
quickly to introduce the mood thanks to a character recounting a legend
and one character consuming mushrooms.
Unfortunately, it's at this point that the movie starts going in all
directions. Many reviewers seem offended that the movie didn't deliver
a given experience which seems to be due to their expectations that
this movie would follow a specific formula. Be it a "classic horror
tale" or a slasher flick or gore movie. While movie fans would be wise
not to make so many assumptions, one must admit there was a failure
here by director Breathnach to develop a coherent mood and story.
For instance, the character development in this movie leads absolutely
nowhere. In fact, many movies which do *not* rely on effective
character development other than as a side-dish actually fare better
than Shrooms. Yet we can't help but think it was sorely needed here. As
well, the movie flirts between psychological horror, action horror and
supernatural horror without ever hitting the marks. One can blend ANY
genres if it is done effectively. But a mediocre story is much better
off sticking to a proved formula.
One other fault of this movie is its derivative nature, borrowing
tricks from a great many flicks such as Deliverance, Blair Witch and
too many slasher flicks to name.
Finally, I have no idea if the director attempted a "plot twist" or not
but I could see the plot twist almost as the seed was planted. I kept
hoping there would be more to it, that it would be misdirection of some
kind or that it would be made more explicit but no. The ending offers
flashbacks explaining what happened, as if the audience wouldn't be
aware of that! So what about the good? Well, the direction is really
tight and some scenes, particularly early on, are effective at offering
tensed moments. Lindsey Haun is also convincing as Tara. The rest of
the cast is really forgettable. None of them are noticeably weak with
the exception of Robert Hoffman, who really looked like he didn't
I am left wondering if the editing is at fault here. Was a decision
made to cut 30, 45 minutes of this movie that might have made it a
great film? I certainly think this is possible. Almost none of the
scenes felt boring. It just felt like an incomplete experience.
Existential horror turned into classic slasher/survival movie midway
Director Paddy Breathnach, who is more familiar with edgy comedies, is
a welcome breath of fresh air compared to the very boring, repetitive
directors who focus on the horror genre. But the screenplay by Pearse
Elliott is at fault here.
