A great film about psychological horror...
23 March 2011 | by mcpierce-1See all my reviews

When I first heard about this film, I was very interested in checking it out. As a fan of horror I had to see it after reading the description. And I was not disappointed.

The story is solid, moves at a pace that keeps the viewer interested without moving too quickly. The viewer has time to absorb what's happening without lingering and without being spoon fed the story.

The acting delivers on nearly all sides, with a great performance by Alan Sutherland as The Monster. On my podcast (A Little Dead Podcast) I remarked that Sutherland's manner of moving through scenes told us without beating us over the head that he was something unnatural, something orthoganal to our world. Ben Andrews as John gives a great performance as an artist who is falling apart and losing touch with those around him.

It's on that last note that the screen writer, Antony De Gennaro, really delivers a powerful, thought provoking story that works on several levels. On the surface we've got a story of a man falling apart. His girlfriend is moving away and possibly cheating on him. His dreams of art are failing and he's resorting to doing porn to survive. And there's a homeless killer who he believes lives in his apartment building, but nobody will believe him.

But when you dig down, there's another level of story present that explains Ben's troubles. And it's there that the true horror in his life really lurks, just behind the scenes in the dark of his psyche.

It's truly an excellent film.
