A Surprisingly Excellent Horror-Drama
27 October 2018 | by sara_shawSee all my reviews

I had no real expectations going into this, nor did I read a synopsis. It just seemed like the kind of horror movie I like, so I took a flyer on it. Let me just say: I'm really glad I did. It's really lovely to go into a movie and then watch it unfurl in front of you in unexpected, well-done ways, to build characters and bring them to fruition in a very touching manner, all while telling a dramatic-horror story that doesn't shirk from darkness and gore, when necessary. All this to say: an extremely well-done film. If you tend toward the indie side of things, then this is definitely for you. However, like I said, there is also plenty of traditional horror happenings, but they are all in service of the story (excellent!).

Let me start a new paragraph to sing the praises of two things: the direction/cinematography and the lead actress. The director also wrote the film, and the cinematographer is listed as co-director as well, and this shines through in some absolutely gorgeous frames where the camera is held still in some beautiful shots. As with all great direction, there are no wasted movements or shots here: the camera is moving when it needs to, and when it needs to be still, it is. But while all of this techinical work was excellent, the real star of the film is the lead actress, Nadia Alexander. She is absolutely remarkable, fleshing out the totality of a role that in the hands of a lesser actress would be one-note and usual. Her character arc is a marvel to behold, and I would be very surprised not to see her continue to blossom in larger profile roles as she gets older.

In summation: if you like indie dramatic-horror that prizes story/characters as much as scares/gore, then this movie is definitely for you. A Must See, in my humble opinion....
