Southern Guff
10 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Being a massive vampire, horror, and all round b movie lover the first 5 minutes of this movie had lots of promise, and I was really rooting for this to be a cracking undiscovered dark little tale of southern Gothic mayhem. However, 20 mins in it soon became apparrant that the film lacked anything more than the flimsiest of plots, little or nothing in the way of meaningful character development, and some serious challenges on the sound and lighting front.

However, the film is not without it's charms - William Forsythe does a pretty sinister preacher man in the first third (although is wasted after that), the moody lead guy has some presence (although poorly directed and with a rubbish script), and there are some of great uses of imagery and visual flair that do actually work, as well as some not bad fx in a few places.

Mark Young seemed to have the makings of a dark little tale of vampirism, religious zealousness, and redemptin here, but either ran out of money, ideas and focus by the end, which is rushed and contrived to say the least and generally de-railed by poor execution all round.

Someone give this man a good script, a decent budget, and a sound engineer. A missed opportunity. Revisit Katheryn Bigelow's Near Dark instead for the real deal.
