Penny Orcutt, the Producer of the quirky horror film "Death By Engagement" should be proud of all of the achievements they have accomplished with this film. It is an original storyline that as far as I know of, hasn't been done before which is a giant plus in my little black horror book! A ring that drives someone to kill anyone that touches it's remarkable appearance seems like a pretty cool idea.
The story is about how a man with a extreme anger management problem who gets stiffed at the altar by his beautiful bride. At the last minute she finally gets the nerve to take off and skip the wedding fearing for her future safety in the relationship. As her and her brides maid haul ass out of the church parking lot, they nervously chat about what he would do to her if he caught her after pulling this impulsive stunt.
Spencer catches up with them and breaks his way into the car like the madman he is and makes minced meat out of both of them. Spencer was close to getting his ring back, but a cops slimy circumstances disable him from doing so, the ring is an heirloom that was passed down 4th generations from his father's mother which was then eventually passed down to him.
"P.J. Soles" (Halloween) plays, Spencer's mother Mrs. Starkington whose undying love for her neurotic son Spencer is almost creepy, but we all know a mothers love runs deep and it takes a lot before a mom will believe the worst about her only little boy who grew up to be a lunatic. It was weird seeing her be in such a stiff role since I am used to her usual bubbly self. She played it well.
As the expensive impressive ring comically lands from finger to finger on these lovely ladies, the wrath of "Spencer is awakened and each one is murdered in attempts to retrieve the ring. The incredibly sexy "Sascha Knopf" plays Detective Rikki Moore who despises fallopian tube movies and thinks marriage is a joke, giving us the impression that marriage is not one of her priorities.
I had a blast watching this many film fests award winning flick. Besides humor there is plenty of gore and great scenes to keep you engaged in the story and the crazy roles of some of these characters. They were great like Bobo, who would propose for the sole intention of getting laid by his air headed masseuse that has him turned on at the moment.
Any horror movie lover out there should be able to get into this with no problem and people beware "Stay Single!" Other Actresses such as blue eyed beauty "Christa Campbell" with "Maggie Myatt" as her snotty gold digging sister star in this film crafted by "Philip Creager."
