This is not the greatest film in the world. It is very reminiscent of early Peter Jackson films (Bad Taste) and early Sam Raimi stuff. I can't help but be pretty excited about the growth of a new and interesting Canadian film scene that's got creative people involved in all the aspects. I'd like to see more - I'm hoping this is the first of many things to come from the folks responsible.
It's an exercise, and I am really pleased that I decided to rent it. If you're looking for a finished, well funded, polished piece, go elsewhere. This is a diamond in the rough. Lots of fuller character stuff could be in it. Lots of better filming done, the girls could be a little differentiated, but face it, they're bloody differentiated from a lot of women I've seen on screen simply by the fact that they look natural.
There are a lot of different horror tropes being tested out here. Deranged cop from Desperation, Lovecraft Things, Oddly Coloured Landscapes, Young People Screwing When You Know They Shouldn't, Ladies In The Water. Pretty neat stuff! And no sparkly vampires. It's a bit of a return to seventies horror films.
