Homecoming Movie Review 134



Homecoming is a horror movie starring Mischa Barton of The OC fame. It is directed by Morgan J Freeman(not the well known actor!).

This movie begins with a guy called Mike (Matt Long) returning to his hometown of Mt.Bliss for some special occasion. He was the star quarterback in high school and he was popular. He also used to date Shelby(Barton) but they broke up. Mike brings his new girlfriend, Elizabeth(Jessica Stroup)with him. She is pretty and wealthy.
Elizabeth and Mike bump into Shelby and they chat. What Mike doesn't realise is that Shelby has never gotten over him. Shelby talks with Elizabeth who is nervous about meeting Mike's parents and she tells her that they are judgmental. She gets her drunk and then Elizabeth has to stay at a motel as she does not want to meet Mike's parents drunk. She goes to the motel but there are no rooms so she decides to walk along a lonely road. She gets hit by a car and the driver is Shelby! It is an accident. Instead of taking her to the hospital, Shelby takes her home to her house and puts her in one of the rooms.


Shelby continues to keep Elizabeth in the house and she tells her that she is looking after her etc, but after a while, it becomes obvious that Shelby is determined to get Mike back and she will do whatever she has to. She traps Elizabeth in the house and Elizabeth has to try and escape to get to Mike. Meanwhile, Shelby is acting as normal and she convinces Mike that Elizabeth has left him and gone back home. Mike begins to wonder if she has. Elizabeth almost escapes, but Shelby catches her and puts her in the basement. Elizabeth puts a note in Mike's jacket which Shelby is going to give to him and he sees it and realises that Shelby has her. He goes over to get her back and he is confronted by Shelby. They fight and Mike rescues Elizabeth but Shelby isn't down yet. She fights to the end and then they kill her, or do they????

This movie is okay if there is nothing on tv but it isn't anything special. I would only recommend it if you are a fan of Mischa Barton....
