Even before Guardians of the Galaxy, actor Sean Gunn had starred in several films directed by his brother James Gunn, including Tromeo and Juliet and The Special, which James wrote, and Super, James’ sophomore. directorial effort. In the Guardians of the Galaxy films, Sean plays a Ravager named Kraglin and also provides motion capture for Rocket Raccoon. It’s no wonder, given his brother’s strong filmography, that Sean’s most memorable film is No one directed by James. Instead, it’s the 1997 horror film Struck.
Like many other 90s teen horror films, Stricken is about a group of young friends about a shocking murder and unexpected twists. Starting as a series of extreme group pranks, things quickly turn into a nightmare, leading to a cascading series of increasingly bloody incidents. With Jamie Kennedy in the cast, it’s easy to see the influence of Scream (released a year earlier), but this isn’t a fix on the 1996 classic. The characters don’t look the same, the script is boring, the killings aren’t nearly as fun, and the surprises aren’t as pleasant.
From the sound of it, you might be tempted to wear this for a Halloween laugh, but trust us, you’ll regret it. We’re pretty sure Sean Gunn did it.
