Good flick!
20 September 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Well as it is just released on Video On Demand (VOD) The Big Bad shows that there is a lot possible with a very small budget. The end product is a stylish movie that knows where it is going. Should have been hard for Jesse Gotta to write and play the main role in orderly fashion? Or did she proof us that double roles won't be of any influence in making a good movie?

Frankie Ducane is a woman in a seedy bar at a bad part of town, looking for a man named Fenton Bailey. A chance encounter with barfly Molly tells her she's on the right track. Molly had run into Fenton not too long ago and come away with a cut on her neck and an itch that wouldn't go away. When Frankie leans in and tells Molly what that itch is, the wounded woman goes to the bathroom and tries to slit her wrist. The suicide attempt fails, and after Frankie has buried Molly's body in a shallow grave, things get much worse. A trail of blood is left in her path as she fights every step of the way on the road to Fenton Bailey. And when she finds him, Frankie discovers those feelings that had driven her forward weren't fueled so much by anger as they were grief. "I just miss you both so much," she tells Fenton before . . . well, I'm not going to tell. Suffice it to say the ending is somewhat bittersweet.

One of the first things you will notice as a viewer is the great surrealism in this movie. The tone of the movie is a very dark one but with a bit of fantasy touché to it. Jesse Gotta and Bryan Enk have set up a very nice story and which has been captured and directed in a great way. The Big Bad didn't had a big budget but the movie never feels like a low budget movie thanks to the stylistic way of the movie. The movie shows the love that has been put into it and embraces the fairy-tale related parts into a dark murderous ride. Jesse Gotta wrote the script and plays the main role in the movie she makes sure the character she plays shows the emotion so needs to show and never as character feels empty. But The Big Bad isn't without its flaws a lot of action shots have been shot with a handycam which means shaky and muddled scenes. There could have been a lot more and better ways to capture the images but in the end it is a budget choice. While Gotta did great as a writer some of the dialogue is just not worth the time and just feels empty.

The monologues were just going on too long but never in a way it is annoying but in a way that you as viewer start to question things too much. The effects in the movie are well made and are never to gory and is walking a safe line in this one. Too much gore wouldn't have fit in the dreamy state of the movie and I am glad they didn't overdo it.

The Big Bad ended up as a surprise for me and after seeing a lot of movies lately with a lot higher budget fail miserably this was a nice breath of fresh air. Keep on the lookout for Gotta and Enk they have everything set up great and let's hope their new movie will have a higher budget. But with the budget they had they made this movie into a success in my book, the makeup, editing, the story and the sound just fits everything perfectly. I would say go check it out it is worth the watch.
