The Possession of David O'Reilly: Review

28 April 2011 2:00 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Review by Michael Pickle

The Possession of David O'Reilly is last year's supernatural UK import from directors Andrew Cull and Steve Isles. It's not likely to please every horror fan out there, but it's the kind of horror film that I personally enjoy discovering. A film that's very low budget, but not afraid to take chances. It's not perfect, but it's scary.

With solid acting, a few bare bones, but effective camera tricks, and some special effects make-up; this supernatural thriller is not afraid to be subtle. Nor is it afraid to be straight-forward. It seems to drag in a couple parts, but that even worked well for me and made the scary scenes that much scarier. In a constant state of unease you never know if the next scare is going to creep up on you or jump in your face. Kind of like feeling the hairs stand up »

Watch David O'Reilly's Bizarre Sundance Short, 'The External World'

15 February 2011 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Video, Cinematical

The opening night shorts program at this year's Sundance Film Festival was full of some pretty strange material, including David O'Reilly's animated film 'The External World,' which wound up taking home an honorary mention from the shorts jury once the festival wrapped up.

It's probably one of the oddest pieces of animation you'll watch this week year, and, as with any piece of art that takes risks with its storytelling and presentation, the short itself has elicited mixed reactions. Some feel it's brilliant in every conceivable way -- a trippy yet creative look at how technology is slowly consuming us. Others, however, think it hits you a little too hard with its message and that its 17-minute runtime could've been chopped some.

We fell somewhere between the two after watching it at Sundance. It's definitely a unique piece of entertainment, that's for sure, »

Sundance Festival Awards Wrap

30 January 2011 11:22 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Mostly I've been just motoring along, not too sad about having missed Sundance this year until it occurred to me what a jump start it gave me on this current Oscar race -- not too mention my own rooting interests at the film bitch awards. Whoa unto us who cannot afford a week in the snowy Utah mountains. I'm dying to see Vera Farmiga's directorial debut but otherwise I have poured over precious few Sundance articles. There was too much Oscar noise this week to give it much thought. But here's what Sundance went for with a passion.
