One Visual Slice of Horror Done Right, 20 May 2010
Author: Film_Junkie68 from United States

Anyone who's seen the revenge/slasher flicks of the 70's and 80's(movies like 'Last House on the Left & I spit on your Grave) are pretty familiar with this type of film. Truth be told I've seen countless of other horror films that have pretty much followed the same story line over and over again. A small group of characters are dumped into a hostile and unfamiliar environment only to encounter a presence far more terrifying. Same goes here, you have a Beautiful Young Couple who while fishing are forced to go ashore due to a brewing storm coming ahead. Only they get lost, typical right? So far nothing special. It's only when they loose themselves inland that things quickly pick up from there. As the storm brews rapidly ahead the young couple take refuge at a seemingly deserted farmhouse which unknown to them belongs to a pot growing, porno watching, trigger-happy farmer and his two demented sons. Now I've familiar with Jamie Blank's works before, the teen slasher flicks Urban Legend & Valentine. So when I was watching this film I wasn't expecting anything much different. Only problem was, I WAS BLOWN AWAY.

When you do a horror film you usually have two things going for you, 1: A Scary and Original Plot(something that's been done before, but with a twist to blow the viewer away), and 2: A Terrifying and Relentless Central Villain(in this case villains). This film has both and if it wasn't for Jamie's solid direction, he's magnificent use of camera angles, and Everett De Roche's clever script. I wouldn't of wasted my 2 cents reviewing this flick. Heck, I found this movie on the $5 shelf at my local pawn shop, can't say I was disappointed.

As with other new age horror films the gore was amped up, but I thought it worked well with the film. Not like the "Saw" films where gore is just there to be there, in this film it actually serves a purpose. I loved the music score, which Blanks composed himself(whenever they showed the house or the when the father or brothers entered they had a entrance), and more importantly I felt for the characters. Which I didn't expect to happen, usually in horror films your just waiting for the next person to die. No back story, no emotion. In this I had a hard time watching Nadia Fares being terrorized by this insane family, and knowing the husband was too weak to do anything made it even harder.

But once the storyline kicks in, it really does play out like the revenge/slasher. With these two characters fighting desperately for their lives against our central villains, a very intense battle with bloody and wickedly gruesome deaths. I had to hold on the my seat to keep from cringing, you'll understand once you see the "hook trap" and the "personal security trap" which was just pure genius.

Our two leading actors, Robert Taylor & Nadia Fares do a fairly excellent job as the young couple who find themselves in peril. But I have to give the real credit to the actors portraying the demented family, David Lyons in particular. He commanded his performance whenever he was on screen, I actually wondered at one point if he really was this crazy. I can't wait to see his other works. Along with John Brumpton who played the father. The first time we see him show up there's a flash of lightening, and just the look on his face alone told me why the sons were afraid of him, kudos! All in all I give this movie a 5 out of 5 stars rating. There's no horror film in the past year that has surprised and impressed me as much as "Storm Warning", right now it's in my top ten. I can't possibly tell you how mad I am at Hollywood right now for their pointless remakes of old horror movies which seem to go nowhere. They need to take a lesson from foreign films like this. You don't need gore to run a film, just good old horror and suspense, ladies and gentlemen this film DELIVERS!
