Storyline

2000 Year-Old Myth: The Promise Keeper movie springboards from a 2000 Year-Old myth. Nail fetishes were used in certain West African villages when a bargain was struck, or a solemn oath was made. The promise maker would drive a nail into a fetish, which had been crafted by a local shaman. Modern Day Chicago: After an unusual statue arrives in a current-day Chicago law firm, three attorneys fall under the influence of a supernatural entity. After one of the lawyers is killed, the burden falls on the founding partner, Bernard Gregory, to unravel the mystery. Along the way, Bernard discovers that his 14-year-old daughter Tina has driven a nail and sworn a sacred oath. The lives of everyone that Bernard loves depend on what he does next.

A Low Budget Indie Horror That You Can Watch
22 September 2007 | by (Columbus, OH) – See all my reviews

When I picked it up at the video store, I didn't have much hope that this would be watchable. In fact, I only got it because one of the leads, Ric Walker, is a relative. (OK he's my brother, and I thought I could riff on him for doing this picture) So I took it home and put it in the DVD player.

What I got was a very watchable, in fact, a pretty good horror picture. Sure, there are a few problems, some sound and continuity errors, the actors are a little theatrical, but over all I really enjoyed myself.

The less is more theory of movie-making was evident. There was no on-screen gore, and the creature was shown in shadow rather than let the audience see a cheesy thing that would probably be laughable, given the obvious budget constraints, and the focus was on suspense and the characters dealing with an unbelievable circumstance.

Rather than seeing the latest big budget gore-fest I think 'The Promise Keeper' would make a nice substitute if you want to get the "willies." Check it out!!
