Wes Craven gives us a creepy story with "They"
It's nice to know that after all these years, Wes Craven can still give us some good movies. He hasn't had much since his success with the Scream trilogy(I don't consider Dracula 2000 to be one of his hits). In They, Julia Lund (Laura Regan) has here normal life interupted when an old childhood friend, Billy (played by Jon Abrahams, best known for his apperance in Scary Movie), contacts here out of the blue. Out of concern for his well-being, Julia goes to Billy where he rambles to her of his beliefs. Billy is afraid that the creatures in their night-terrors, which they both suffered from as children, are real, and have come back. Soon after, Billy commits suicide. At his funeral, Julia meets Sam and Terry (played by Ethan Embry of TV's Dragnet, and Dagmara Dominczyk, who appeared in Rockstar), they were friends of Billys. They as well suffered from the night-terrors. After many strange sightings and babbling beliefs, Julia, Terry, and Sam, all start to think that Billy might have been right, and that any one of them could be next. This movie featured many good performance's by Ethan Embry, Jon Abrahams, and Marc Blucas (best known as Riley from the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Although Craven did not direct this film, the settings and atmosphere give you the same sense of terror you experianced from Nightmare on Elm Street. I highly recommend this film, not just to Craven fans, but anyone who is looking for a good movie to watch on a saturday night with all your lights turned off.
It starts out slow. When it becomes a bit interesting, the whole plot gives way to basic chase. Scenes with no depth, and why don't these people carry a flash light. Use a flash light don't blow your brains out. I've seen a lot worse. But the chases are so unorignal the creature could have been Jason.
Wes Craven Presents "They" OK
A good movie, coulda been a lot worse. Good plot but, I think that it would have been more effective if Wes Craven would have wrote and directed it though.
