A well oiled machine, 17 February 2014
Author: andyunderhill72 from United States

This isn't the first film I'm reviewing from Dustin Mills and I doubt it will be my last. I finally got to check this out recently and felt the need to share my thoughts.

It's not as high quality as Easter Casket, being more grounded and intimate by comparison. A down on his luck loser has major heart troubles and can't afford treatment. Instead of exploring better medical options based on insurance, Medicaid, or even Canada, he instead makes a deal with the devil. He gets himself a brand new, awful, Lovecraftian, monster heart! The only downside is that the heart needs to feel on humans for him to survive.

It sounds like b-schlock and it is in the best way. Performances are interesting and usually hit home runs, the effects are fine, the monster is a bit cheap but works for the film. The story seems straight forward but really does everything that it wants to, and does it well. I felt for the lead character at several points and I really felt his struggle to cope with his choice. There's some absolutely fantastic character moments that seems to be a great example of Dustin's writing. Shots were also pretty solid, especially given that almost the entire movie is in one apartment.

The biggest downside in the film is a lot of low-brow humor from the devil's "assistant" or whatever he was. This sort of stuff is hit or miss and to me, it was a big miss. I was glad whenever he left the screen.

I'd definitely recommend this film to fans of indie movies. Dustin is definitely one of those directors that continues to impress.
