Intelligent Horror/Psychological Thriller that stays with you after the fact
The premise for Cookers is simple; three white-trash crystal-meth addicts on the run lock themselves up in a farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. Things quickly get strange for the trio as they begin to see terrifying and ghastly apparitions. Is it the massive amount of drugs their taking or is their hideout truly haunted?
After I saw this film I kept thinking about it for quite some time. The acting is great (Brad Hunt is amazing once again) as was the storytelling and the direction. Cookers is the type of film a studio would never make. Everything isn't spelled out for you and there's no Hollywood type BS ending. You actually have to think about what you've just watched and have to make decision about what actually happened during the film.
This is an intelligent Horror/Psychological Thriller that stays with you after the fact. The last move I saw like this that forced me to think was the brilliant Donnie Darko (even though that had themes of time-travel and sci-fi they somehow fit in the same genre).
