Definitely one of the better movies...
9 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When compared to some other movies born from the imagination of a musician, "DF" rates much higher than most.

To start this review off right... Big props to Lions Gate for again kicking off yet another quality series of indi or foreign horror movies that might well have never gotten release or had little to no notoriety here in the US had it not been released by them. Like the After Dark films, Ghost House Pictures present little-known gems of low budget horror film making with granted mix results but at least they're given their just chance to make it.

Though this was the 2nd of the 8 Ghost House Pictures releases I watched, it was the most impressive so far and in my mind is one of the more successful movies done by someone in another business the incomparable Mr. Lordi. For example of an excruciatingly awful film by a rock star you need go no further than Bret Michaels' untra-lame "A Letter From Death Row". "DF" goes much further than expected with it's genuinely creepy production design, effective special FX and atmospheric musical score.

Worth a look.
