Good Start
30 December 2002 | by BHorrorWriterSee all my reviews

I contacted Writer/Director Gary Lump about seeing a screener of his film, WHEN HEAVEN COMES DOWN, and he promptly sent it my way. I had met Gary on the B-Indepedent message board, along with other b-movie filmmakers. Gary seemed very determined to get the word out about his little film. I thought the title sounded intriguing and the character of "the savior" had a helluva costume.

At first glance, the film would seem like just your run of the mill slashfest. A crazy guy in a costume offing women. In some ways, that is mostly what the film is. However, the story unfolds much neater than just that. We have a battered, frightened woman who is tormented with nightmares of a past event/encounter with "the savior," a masked killer, hell bent on finding the "chosen one" to carry his seed, as has been ordained by God!

Sam, or main character and heroine, has tucked herself away in a shell and will not let anyone get close. Her means of exposure if helping other battered/abused women with their problems, keeping hers buried away.

As the film progresses, we are met with a few twists, some not fully developed, a few slowly paced scenes, but a climax that makes up for the bad and personifies the good of the film. Hell, I didn't see alot of it coming! But I did go "wow!" with the final revelation from our heroine!

All in all, Gary Lumpp delivers a rather well made, even if the sound if off, first film, with promise in future (hint hint) films to follow. Gary is a great guy, and a good director! I would work with him in a minute! The script was good, even if all the actors weren't up to par. That sort of thing is expected in these types of films. But, Gary is aware of his mistakes and strong points, so I am confident he will continue to make well done b-movies!
