Gory and weird
12 September 2013 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The plot: A group of petty drug dealers head to their remote cabin for a birthday celebration, but the real party begins when one of them becomes possessed by something beyond time and space.

The biggest problem is that this film has too much filler. If this had been half as long, it would have been twice as good. The first 30 minutes consists of tedious character development, but once you get past that, things start getting pretty interesting. The setup seems to be going toward a stereotypical, derivative biker film, but it takes a series of progressively weirder left turns into possession film, home invasion, surreal torture porn, and finally a David Lynch-style ending that leaves you with plenty of questions and no answers. If you like David Lynch, David Cronenberg, and Takashi Miike, you'll probably like this film, but mainstream horror fans who resent endings that make no sense will probably want to stay away from this messy film.

There are definitely some interesting ideas, and the filmmakers tried to do something different and non-mainstream. However, it comes across as a mish-mash of postmodern concepts that are not fully realized. I would have preferred more focus and less filler, but this was actually a pretty good attempt. If you're patient, forgiving of low budget horror films, and like weird stories that make no sense, you should give The Violent Kind a try. It's worth a 6 or 7 -- not the 4 that it currently has.
