Weird horror homage that may develop a cult following
STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning
This bizarre little horror film that appears to have come out of nowhere seems, judging by it's style and appearance, to be a homage to the grainy 1970s horror flicks from the likes of Dario Argento or other such luminaries. Playing out in various acts (i.e. Act I: Transmission and such...) maybe the feeling isn't so much homage as one of trying to be clever and post ironic, but either way the film has the feeling of a particular type of grainy horror flick.
The driving force seems to be AJ Bowen's possessive husband, tracking his unfaithful spouse (Anessa Ramsey) after being driven mad by a twisted transmission in the tellys, leading to a whole succession of mad plot twists, until saviour (hopefully) arrives in the form of Justin Welborn's more rational bit on the side. There's plenty of blood splattered violence on display, some of it seriously pushing the boundaries, but all done with a noticeable and decent tongue in the cheek that balances it all out. The plot alone is complicated and, yes clever enough that at least two viewings would be a good idea. While this doesn't manage to be a classic of any kind, it more than makes for a rewarding enough horror flick. ***
