Get me a fly swatter!
26 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

I caught this indie gem at the NYC Horror Film Festival in 2004 and was completely enthralled. Feast of Souls tells the tale of three men who have known each other since childhood. They return to a special spot in the deep woods where they shared life, growing pains and many memories. But this particular visit down memory lane ends in the unfortunate murder of one trio member over a matter of stolen money. With two men remaining, a scuffle ensues and our main character (Josh Smith) is knocked unconscious. Upon awakening, he finds himself transported to a hallucinatory dimension guided by the ghost of an enigmatic slave girl (played beautifully by Ra Sylver). His surreal journey through these haunted southern woods relives the deaths which occurred in the forest since the Civil War. Is he only dreaming? Will he ever wake up? And what about all those flies? E. Lee's cinematography is lush and beautifully captures all the natural gradients of Virginia's forest greens. It dominates the screen and like all great locations, it becomes it's own character in the film. It also compliments and heightens the 'mortal' characters, which all appear in neutral earth tones. Andy Staley's authentic Bluegrass scoring and mix of eerie ambient effects stretches the hundred year gap between its main characters and fuses them. Director/actor Josh Smith makes a great debut in both titles. His direction is tight and his acting is natural and relaxed. This is only just the beginning for Josh Smith!
