Admirable horror amateur feature
30 October 2006 | by McBuffSee all my reviews

Nicolas Bennetzen is an amateur filmmaker, whose debut feature GLIMPSE, shot for only 25,000 DKK, premiered on cable channel DK4 in October '06. Bennetzen, well aware of his budgetary limitations, has wisely decided to avoid major special effects and large set pieces. The object was admittedly to use the filming process as a learning experience and prove that amateurs can complete a feature film on a low budget. The film is obviously inspired by Japanese horror movie hits of the late '90es like RINGU, DARK WATER and JU-ON, replete with shots of dark long-haired Japanese chicks appearing out of nowhere. Director Bennetzen knows the genre conventions, which results in a moderately entertaining, but overlong attempt at a Danish psychological horror movie. Some judicious cuts might have resulted in a tighter and more effective film. Lead actor Eliot does a fine job, but the performances of the supporting actors are highly variable. For horror buffs, the film offers nothing new. Anyone who's ever seen a Japanese horror film will see the twists coming a mile ahead, but on its own terms, a worthy and respectful amateur effort that Bennetzen can take pride in and use as a guiding tool for future projects. Hopefully he'll come up with something a bit more original next time.
