Dread Central Review and Dixie Fest Winner
26 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We love independent movies especially spooky ones that don't do the whole gore thing and we saw this review quoted from Dreadcentral.com back in August: "No word on a distro deal for the film yet, but I'm sure it won't take long for someone to snatch this up. Conjurer is a smart, tense ghost story that I'm sure will find its place among fans who are looking to avoid the usual ADD-causing jump scares and work instead on slowly witling away at your nerves." It really made us want to see it but there was no word about a release or anything and there was no follow up news then we saw it was going to play at the Dixie Film Festival a few weeks ago. We went and saw it and it was even better than expected and it even won Best Feature! They announced it was sold to Showtime and gets a national DVD release in late November which is cool because it's really worth watching. This is low budget and a bit slow but a whole lot better than movies like The Return or The Abandoned or The Messengers or Darkness.
