Campy cult classic
23 January 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Loved this film: a campy modern fairytale and quirky melodrama with dark undertones. There is some mostly awful acting, a lot of it clearly improvised, but interspersed with moments of sheer brilliance. Eugene Levy is awesome, with little glints of the talent evident in his later more memorable roles. The Reverend Alex St. John has a Jim Jones aura about him and holds the town in thrall, although Jonestown was still 5 years in the future. (I guess this movie was way ahead of its time in several ways?). The wintry Ontario scenes and stark minimalistic directing deliver a sustained sense of foreboding and unease that something is very, very wrong in the town of Farnhamville. The degree of gratuitous violence and gore is quite surprising for its time. The femme fatales are deliciously sensual and alluring, and their victims appropriately chauvinistic (and hairy!). Yet there are also some delightful subtle touches, like when the mechanic at the local gas station places a for sale sign on Clifford's car that is in for repair: the message is simple- once you arrive, you can never leave. The atmosphere is relentless and for me, genuinely scary.

Twilight, eat your heart out!
