It's Halloween weekend and a group of bullies are planning their annual hazing on local outcast, Jacob Atkins. When they take things too far, he's resurrected to seek revenge against those that wronged him.
GIRLS AGAINST BOYS is another cheap revenge picture with a battle-of-the-sexes slant. It feels very much like a cheap I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE remake and even features an actor or two who appeared in one of those films, I can't remember which. This one seems to have even less plot than usual and is merely a string of set-pieces of the main two characters going around and butchering unsuspecting blokes, some of them deserving, some of them not.
I find films like this one almost entirely devoid of merit. The cheap digital look of the production is almost anti-cinematic and an example of everything I DON'T want to see in a film. The acting is generally weak and exaggerated and the violence brief and not very shocking. The subject matter is distasteful but the approach is so lame that none of it is possible to take seriously.
