Independent Gore Thriller is Wild, Gross, Fun and More
10 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

I had been waiting impatiently for the "psychedelic existentialist gore thriller," The Theta Girl's release. While waiting, I watched every trailer and teaser that came out, and read every interview, story, and blog leading up to it. The Theta Girl was written by David Axe and directed and edited by Christopher Bickel in Columbia, South Carolina on, as they say, the budget of a used car. In creating the world (which seems like a mix between thirty years ago and thirty years from now) and story of Gayce, the Theta-dealing, mystery-solving heroine, Axe and Bickel jumped into TTG from the very beginning with their no-holds-barred, punk rock, can-do attitude combined with heavy doses of dedication, love and creative idealism.

So. I knew The Theta Girl was definitely going to be entertaining (it was). I knew it was going to be gory (yes, good Lord, yes). I knew that it was going to be wild and gross and fun (check, check, and check), and that it would be well-shot and hold nothing back (mission accomplished). The camera angles, lighting, acting, home-grown special effects, original music, and smart writing alone would have made this movie a rowdy success. But sitting in the dark theatre at the Columbia premier, there was a lot I wasn't prepared for and didn't know.

I didn't know that it was going to be beautiful. I didn't know that it was going to feel like a memory. I didn't know that it was going to lull me into feeling like I was there, along for the ride on curving back dirt roads. I didn't know that I would feel reverence for night-lit churches and sunny dreams that you just want to hold on to for a little longer. The Theta Girl is beautiful and gritty, it's sweet and it's gross, it's crass and it's thoughtful. It is an obvious work of love and dedication by the director, writer, actors, and everyone involved.

The night I watched it, the theatre was packed with all different kinds and ages of people also waiting to see it for the first time. The whole crowd was immediately drawn into The Theta Girl, with loads of clapping and cheering throughout the movie from the beginning credits to the end. Before it started, the guy next to me shared his Skittles and said it looked like this was a fun crowd that was ready to have a good time. And he was right. We were.
