‘Heartless’ belies its title as an original, atmospheric and emotional horror

3 March 2013 9:33 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Heartless

Written & Directed by Phillip Ridley

UK, 2009

It’s quite a fare feat for a film, and a horror film at that, to conclude on a note that is cruel, shocking, retrospectively abhorrent and yet uplifting, emotionally overwhelming and metaphysical all at the same time. Naturally, a piece of storytelling simply doesn’t invoke these feelings without sufficient build up, and Phillip Ridley’s almost Buddhist slice of terror Heartless possesses the kind of atmospheric dread and genuine empathetic drama which should serve as a lesson to the current crop of young filmmakers pumping out depthless found footage pulp and pretentious vampire fodder each month. While things may get very convoluted, potentially even undecipherable in the closing stages, you’re still looking at an extraordinary ride that channels the spirit of Clive Barker only with, ironically, more heart.

Young Londoner Jamie (Jim Sturgess) has done little with a life overshadowed »
