Storyline

Edgar (Rick Dethlefsen), a meek, honest man seeks retribution for his daughter's (Kelly Kirstein) murder at the hands of her boyfriend Jonathan (Axel Harney). Tracking him to his reclusive father's hilltop property, Edgar witnesses Jonathan take his own life. Left without means to an end Edgar soon staggers through strange nightmares wherein he's visited by a bizarre individual who leads him unexpectedly toward revenge against Jonathan's father Mr. Nelson (Bruce Spielbauer). In time Edgar finds himself believing that Mr. Nelson- the reserved, ominous man with the unusual deformity- is the one truly responsible for his daughter's death. Morals are suspended and his loved ones' lives are in jeopardy as Edgar becomes a force of terror against anyone standing between him and his desire for vengeance. Written by Aaron Russman

I Loves this film for 80's Horror Retro
11 April 2017 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

I Loves this film for the 80's Horror Retro take on the Edgar Allen Poe tale, so many people when re-imaging this old story, make it take place in a modern and dreary location. The set designs where literally out of this world, and the editing style made me reminisce of the 19080's horror films that I loved to watch on VHS back in the day. The story follows Edgar as he begins to unravel a mystery that is in his head and a guilt that he carries with him and the actors are awesome. The on camera talent literally pulls out all the punches here and the performances where what makes an independent film like this stand out in today's over full indie scene.
