A Breath Of New Life!
4 November 2005 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

"Taffy Was Born" is a thinking person's horror film, and that's not a put-down of the usual examples of this genre. It just means that it's different from the typical slash and gore cinema that Hollywood (and even indie filmmakers) seem so eager to offer to audiences.

This film is a throwback to the horror films of old. It really is more in the tradition of an Edgar Allan Poe mystery or an O. Henry short story than in any of what you typically see from this kind of cinema. And that's what makes it special. The film is methodical in setting the scene, but the payoff is worthy of the pace.

The three elements that make it work so well are the taut script and direction handled by David Giardina (as well as production, editing, catering, etc.), the acting performances he gets from his very talented cast, and a gripping and evocative score from composer Igor Dymkov. If you get a chance to see this film, take it. You won't be disappointed.
