I had a chance to see Marcus at the Appalachian Film Festival last week. I was very impressed with what the filmmakers were able to achieve on a shoestring budget. While certain parts of the story became a little claustrophobic at times, the mixed relationships of the four visitors proved to be a great combination and setup for Marcus' creepy personality to play such a disturbing and violent game with. The real payoff of the film happens in the last twenty minutes when Marcus turns frighteningly hostile towards the Christmas dinner party, leaving only the brother left alive to deal with the serial killer's bloody massacre.

The film won best narrative feature at the festival, and proves to be a great niche cult film for horror/thriller enthusiasts.
