A Very Original Concept!!, 19 May 2008
Author: childs_roger from Canada

I caught this movie on the big screen in Toronto. I have to say that this was a very original movie, I've never seen a movie quite like this one before. So I give the filmmaker credit for creating some thing very unique.

I think people will be tempted to rip on Dark Reprieve because of the unusual techniques that are employed here, but the production values are so good for a low budget movie it basically negates much of the negative criticism that will be thrown at this film.

There is so much bloody awful low budget horror crap out there, and this movie isn't in that category at all. It is very well made.

I had several theories running as I watched this, none of them close to the ending, so "they" got me. The final shot is really great, not the kind of shot you see in a low budget film.

Some of the shots are very creative and an excellent example of technique over Hollywood mega fluff. There is one shot where Kate reaches for the medicine cabinet and the camera is shooting straight up from the ground, truly original.

On the downside the scene where they talk about God abandoning them or some thing just killed me, why was it there? A few times the budget shows through like when they go into the kitchen. The actors at times lapse into a "lame" mode. But over all the actors came through on this, considering the tiny cast.

I predict this movie will gain a following on DVD and possibly be some what of a cult hit among people that like this sort of movie.
