Barrington De La Roche,
On the eve of their ten year high school reunion, six people are summoned to the isolated country estate of one of their former friends, now a famous horror writer. Once there, separated by guilt, yet bound together by a terrible secret, seven adults try to reconnect with each other, and take stock of their lives. Outside, the storm clouds gather. Rain, lightning and wind isolate the house by washing out the road and knocking down the power lines. And then, they begin to be brutally murdered one by one. Someone is out there in the wind and the rain, someone who has waited for ten years to wreak a terrible vengeance on this group. Seven friends find themselves in a struggle to survive and outwit a diabolical killer who is savagely committed to sending them all to an EARLY GRAVE.Written by
EARLY GRAVE is an excellent no budget horror/ suspense thriller. It shows what a small group of determined filmmakers can accomplish in a short amount of time when they have drive, talent, and few resources other than a killer screenplay.
The story reminded me of Agatha Christie's .. AND THEN THERE WERE NONE. It centers around a small group of people who committed a terrible crime in their youth, and the guilt and shame that has burdened their lives and many cases, destroyed their dreams. Dealing with the long term effects of a brutal, violent act, the movie carries an underlying message about NOT committing such acts, even under the guise of a "prank" or a "practical joke".
The acting on the whole is excellent. It should be noted that some of the actors in this film have already gone on to earn their SAG-AFTRA cards from work on bigger films, Lifetime MOW's, and TV shows like LAW AND ORDER: SVU.
All in all, this movie is a definite "must see".
