Eric only wants to win The Steel Gloves, an all out fight contest with a prize trip away from the madness. Fr.Mike must convince Eric to defeat the Warlock and save the very people who have treated him so cruelly his whole life. Written by
The advanced screening raised $5,000 for the Police Officer Shawn Bandy memorial which supplies bullet proof vests and other equipment to police officers with departments in need of assistance. See more »
I recently attended the Canton, MI preview of The Ugly One.It was Visually stunning. Literally, a heavy metal folklore. The movie pulsates from beginning to end. Writer/Director Patrick Moug creates a world of fantasy and horror set in a small town and steel factory. Utlimately,this movie takes the viewer through a series of journey's. The journey of re-living and moving through the past. The journey of truth and redemption. And the journey of acceptance.
I was impressed with the casting of many local Michigan Actors. The talent was superb. It was well cast and well directed. The film moved quickly from one event to another, leaving the audience waiting for the next revelation.
The Ugly One was a definite piece of beautiful cinematography.
