The Essence of Evil in a Future Classic
25 March 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Kelby Unger (Ward Roberts) is a young man from a dysfunctional family that lives with his girlfriend Amelia Gates (Christy Jackson) and has sleeping problems with dreadful nightmares. When he proposes Amelia, he coincidently receives a phone call from the warden of the prison of his hometown telling that his father had just died from heart attack. He decides to return to Bisbee for the funeral and Amelia goes with him. Kelby and Amelia lodge at his mother's house and he meets his slut sister Trish (Alexa Havins), his former friends James Lilly (Aaron Gaffey) and the policeman Wally (Jeremiah Jordan) and his unknown uncle Tom (John Coffman). When Wally has a nervous breakdown with the name of Joshua, Kelby is haunted by the evil past in Bisbee.

Yesterday I saw "Joshua" and I am still impressed with this disturbing and sick movie. The director and writer Travis Betz has been well-succeeded in capturing the essence of evil and horror, creating a very original low-budget movie that confronts the innocence of a baby with the twisted and mean minds of three very bad boys. I dare to compare the importance and originality "Joshua" in the horror genre to George A. Romero's "Night of the Living Dead", Sam Raimi's "The Evil Dead" or Tobe Hooper's "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", just to mention a few of movies that became the basis for many rip-offs. Further, with an appropriate distribution and marketing, I believe "Joshua" has potential to be a future classic in the genre. The story is very simple but credible, with a fantastic camera that explores unusual angles, great acting of unknown actors and actresses and I must confess that I had trouble to sleep after watching "Joshua". My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Joshua"
