Beautiful and macabre

The Ancient Rite of Corey McGillis explores the very foundations of what a classic horror story is. A dark and malevolent Creepshow style Horror EC comics tale story that pretty much left me in a silent brooding shock, which many horror films are quite often lacking lately.

A tortured mute teenager trying to bring his parents back together by raising his father from the dead! Old school monster movies have been my favorite kind and it was a pleasure to see that it can still work this damn well nowadays. The special effects are fantastic to say the least, given the clean yet gritty biting look of the film, which leaves an aura of beauty and dread.

Very atmospheric, with a touch of evil and complete with an explosive mayhem ending, Corey McGillis is dark horror in this genre seal of quality. Great!
