Once again I found myself looking at new releases and seeing a solitary copy of a movie I'd never heard of before. So, who am I, anyway, and who cares what I have to say? I just love movies and I know talent when I see it. I actually only joined IMDB because I wanted to spread the word about this film and a couple of others which I thought deserved more favorable reviews. Angels Crest has two actors in it. For two actors, I thought, they'd better deliver. After the first few minutes of: "Oh, here's another low-budget no-name actor flick", I couldn't stop watching. The story is great, the actors slowly turn into who they actually are (terrific jobs!) and the editing develops along the way. It's better to have a movie edited in such a manner as to not hit one over the head with style - this style actually develops, I say. Bare bones sets (the woods), good story and acting and I wonder why film budgets have to be in the multi-millions to be considered any good by passers by along video store shelves. I say, nevermind the artwork or the hype, pick up a movie like this that you've never heard of, and feel good about the money you've spent renting it. And you'll probably watch it twice. (remember Donnie Darko? I had to see it again....a kind of sleeper, I think). But then, who am I? I just like da movies!
