My Review Of "Cupid"

"Cupid" is a supernatural creature horror that turns Valentine's Day into a revenge nightmare. The film is directed by directed by Scott Jeffrey with a cast that includes Georgina Jane, Bao Tieu, Sarah T. Cohen and Michael Owusu.

After being horrendously embarrassed by the mean girls at school, Faye, a practicing witch, summons the evil Cupid to take revenge on all those who wronged her.

"Cupid" is a fun, light-hearted horror story that turns out some revenge on Valentine's Day. The story is a standard trope, pitting young love against an angry curse. The characters are expected constructs. Mean girls, naive victims and a lot of snarky attitude. 

The acting is decent. Some of the dialog does seem to mesh quite as smoothly with the situation at hand, but for the most part "Cupid" manages to be a cutely entertaining slice of junk food cinema. Much like the stuff you can catch on Syfy network. 

The special effects are a blend of cheap CGI (again- much like the Syfy affair). The effects team has done well to blend mostly practical effects when it comes to the blood and gore side of the horror elements. It is done, in low budget fashion, but done good enough to make the scenes fun. Overall " Cupid" is a fun, light, entertaining holiday horror watch. (3/5)
