Richard Turke is a master craftsman of film whom manages to capture the elements of horror, psychosis, thrills, redemption, love and hate in this epic, award-winning masterpiece.
Tom Sizemore shines and is just scary enough to make us want to reassure ourselves it's only a film, while the supporting casts blends a perfect marriage of chemistry that makes this film worth watching not once, not twice, but three times at least.
The film deals with three different sub-plots and in true cinematic fashion they all come together beautifully at the end. The cinematography is sharp and crisp, while clearly the director knows what he is doing.
I'll be speaking about "Visible Scars" for a long time, and you will too once you see it.
