Afflicted is an excellent horror film
12 September 2014 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I wasn't very interested in watching Afflicted, because I'm already a bit tired of the pseudo-documentary technique, specially on horror cinema. However, to my surprise, Afflicted ended up being an excellent film with solid performances, good production values and an ingenious screenplay which presents its classic premise on a fresh and quite creative way... without forgetting, of course, the horror and suspense which are frequently absent in this kind of films. Many modern filmmakers think that the pseudo-documentary technique is an excuse to do the things badly, but co-directors and co-screenwriters Derek Lee and Clif Prowse show a considerable discipline to keep the narrative logical and consistent, with enough style to make it visually interesting and (finally!) realistic and pleasant characters I truly empathized with. I would also like to mention the perfect use of European locations. Instead of secluding us to generic woods or an abandoned building, Lee and Prowse set the paranormal events in varied and picturesque settings. As for the mentioned paranormal events, I prefer not to reveal them, because before watching Afflicted, I knew practically nothing about the plot, and it was exciting to be unraveling the mystery at the same time of the main characters. In summary, Afflicted is a hidden gem which left me very satisfied on the dramatic and visceral levels, and also left me surprised with the quality of its manufacture. I wish we could see independent horror cinema made with such a talent behind and in front of the cameras more frequently.
