Storyline

It's about Carl, whose life has crumbled, and who now exists as a shell of a man. His wretched existence is punctuated by the loss of his wife and all of the emotional scarring that has created. It's also about Emily, who is not well herself. She may be slightly schizophrenic and manic depressive, but she's doing fine in general... stable job, active social life. Things could be better, if only she had Carl. There is hope, however. Hope in the form of a voice which appears to Carl, then to Emily. That voice is Athena, but is she merely manipulating the situation, or is she genuinely attempting to help these two people? Life is messy, and she could be making things worse. Written by Robert W. Filion

Indie horror with grit and gore
2 July 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

ATHENA is an indie horror film with a bit of vigour to it, a bit of drive that makes it stand head and shoulders above the rest. It tells a simple enough story, about a couple of characters who are ostracised from society and subsequently drawn together, but the imaginative direction is enough to see this one through. The low key performances work for the style of film, and there's enough grit and gore to satisfy the most jaded of horror fans. The story is about a loner guy who witnesses a brutal muder in an alleyway one night and who is subsequently infected. By what? You'll have to watch to find out. The rest of the tale is about hearing voices and features a vampiric twist. Also, watch out for one of the cutest sausage dogs put on film.
