Honestly, it's just very amateur.
17 January 2015 | by rushknightSee all my reviews

I was reading back through some of my reviews recently and realized that I tend to do a lot of tearing down. But of course, I also have a penchant for the worst of movies, so I guess that would make sense. It can be hard to say good things about a film that is just really bad.

As for "The Bonesetter," it's a very amateur work. You are going to see a fair bit of work put into it, but ultimately everything is very poor in quality. The camera work in the opening sequence is very rough, and occasionally so shaky you can't even make out the picture. The acting is wooden (more oak than hickory, if yew follow me..), the characters appear to be attempting to play parts that require younger actors at times, the makeup somewhat silly, and the flow of the story is plugged full of holes.

And as always with amateur horror, garage band grind for the music. This time with at least one player who hasn't quite finished getting his guitar tuned up. To be fair, while the music did have a certain "casio" sound to it, some of the themes were fairly nice. I enjoyed some of it this time.

I think the villain was a little over planned. His attire may have fit the decade, but he still just seemed a little to circus-ee to me. I think that they would have done better by keeping him off camera and not allowing him to speak. Oftentimes what the audience doesn't get to see is more interesting than what they do get to see.
