OK horror movie
15 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Ancient tells the story of a small town sheriff and a scientist investigating a series of deaths after an Indian witch doctor is released from his tomb. There are some decent gore scenes and beheadings and even a very well done CGI comet in the climax. No real scares here but the acting was pretty decent for a movie with no budget.

The movie was shot on DV in 3 days by several different directors as part of an experimental shoot. The actors and crew were all volunteer, but they obviously worked hard to get the movie shot in a small amount of time and should be commended for their accomplishment. Although most of the night scenes were dark and the action was choppy the movie still had a discernible flow to it. It played better than some of the DTV stuff I've rented in the past and even had some nice eye candy in a few scenes. The bathroom scene with the two lesbians was very fun.

It was a nice try to bring something new to independent movies. I'm not real sure what happened at the end of the movie and it leaves a lot to be desired but it is worth the price of a rental.
