Impressive independent film: worth a look
4 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

James van der Beek plays the part well - drifting gently away from his role in Dawson's Creek. Though this sort of film has been done before, the isolation in 'Final Draft' provides a much more difficult part for the lead, which James plays with the candour of an experienced actor. Definitely worth a watch, I would select this title over numerous others in the genre; especially Stephen King's 'It' which is far less frightening. It is also refreshing to see a new film approach horror in a traditional manner - not one of the commonplace gore-fests that are dime-a-dozen in the box office recently. For an indy film, it is definitely a good foothold for all involved; being the director's second film and a first for the writer, who also stars. There were few parts and it might have been refreshing to see some higher calibre actors play the supporting roles, though the parts were all played well. A foot in the door for James van der Beek, who with any luck will land a part in a film with a bigger budget sometime soon.
