Wanted more.
18 January 2006 | by gavinqueSee all my reviews

I saw the The Resurrection Apprentice at Fantasia last year and was very impressed. Not really a horror film but a moody little drama which never took a misstep. At times it reminded me of Alfred L. Werker's The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, certainly the excellent use of fog and the ambiguous lighting suggest an homage to that film. The dialog was rich and reminiscent of Dickens. I was surprised to learn that the film was shot in New Jersey. I met with the director Glenn McQuaid after the screening and he told me he was planning to expand the story into a feature. I hope this happens as I want to see more of this haunting world.
