Strong Asian cop/black magic thriller
4 January 2007 | by rust37See all my reviews

Three cops from anti-sorcery department one day find that one of them (Itty) went too far with black magic. Having escaped from high-security prison Itty now looks for revenge being confronted by young police officer (Santi). Will occult powers bring any luck to those with good and bad intentions?

What pleased me most about this movie is that creators relied more on imagery, rather than dialogs, surprising me with how little has been spoken having told so lot.

As for the imagery itself it was full of style and sometimes stunning (in a way of Re-Cycle and Eye), being well infused with cultural motives (ceremonies, temple sequences) and genuine nuances (lunch scenes, hierarchical relations).

I always praise the sense of proportion and Necromancer didn't disappoint me. No excessive gore, and effects were used right to the necessary. In fact, in this aspect it was quite an opposite to the Arts of Devil already mentioned here.

In contrary to what have been written here the story wasn't confusing or demanding a deep Asian background, it was even not without some dramatic value (how far one can get with good intentions), and a good thought-provoking twist. Again nothing in common with the Arts of Devil, which was nothing more to me but an exotic Hostel-like slasher.

Acting and obviously directing were strong, nothing to complain. Even soundtrack was pleasing all the way with a relevant new-age-like background.

Making a decent horror movie about black magic is tricky by definition so I was eager to see the final stand. Surprisingly, although not without some minor reservations Necromancer passed even this test having delivered quite an impressive battle scene and not so easy to guess finale.

So, although Necromancer doesn't offer anything new in horror-making and doesn't scare much it nevertheless delivers as a high-quality exotic thriller with some stunning imagery and involving story. It's well worth seeing.
