TAKE A HORRIFIC JOURNEY TO "MEAN CREEK," A PLACE WHERE BULLIES GET THEIR JUST....HORROR!!

In a way you can consider this part 1 of a 2-parter as both movies have to do with the sweet art of taking revenge and the karmic repercussions good or bad. Mean Creek is one of those understated gems that make movie collecting so enjoyable.  It's a teen thriller excellently produced and holding strong to the moral lessons it intends to deliver, so much so it could be considered by an educator for class viewing and exploring, albeit heavy in tone. Using my Pinewoods Rating System, Mean Creek gets a nice solid Three Pinewoods....The Horror!!

Mean Creek Movie Review & Film Summary (2004) | Roger Ebert

"Mean Creek" opens with a schoolyard bully picking on a smaller kid, develops into a story of revenge, and then deepens into the surprisingly complex story of young teenagers trying to do the right thing. It could have been simple-minded and predictable, but it becomes a rare film about moral choices, about the difficulty of standing up against pressure from your crowd.
