A folk nightmare
24 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The one thing that stuck with me about this film is it's mood. It is a macabre and unsettling tale. More folksy in it's telling and definitely not part of the modern horror movement. Glenn McQuaid is a talented writer and director that gives us an entire world in 15minutes. The performances from Fessenden and Manche are terrific. It would have been very easy for them to have hammed it up but instead they give us subtle and enticing acting. I wanted to know more about the characters. What happens to them when they leave the cemetery? Does the kid survive another night? The music is spot on and brings to mind the Paul Giovanni soundtrack for The Wicker Man. Celtic whistles and whispers haunt the cemetery as the character make their way to find a bloodied corpse! Marvelous stuff! It's a shame that so many horror classics are being remade when there are fresh ideas out there like The Resurrection Apprentice that are just waiting to be developed further.
