Atmospheric, must see chiller, shot in the Scottish Highlands
5 February 2014 | by ewanlauderSee all my reviews

Unravelling a childhood mystery, James Findlay (Euan Douglas) encounters the Owl man (David Schofield), an ancient, knowing, and rather decadent apparition. Doubting his sanity, James digs further into the secrets of his ancestral home, Baldurrock house. Where conned by the ethereal and stalked by the unimaginable, his confused existence becomes a waking nightmare.

Lord of Tears succeeds in creating a pretty memorable sense of foreboding and fright. Blending elements of whodunnit, folk-horror and maybe even j-horror, heightened by wonderful scenes with Eve (dancer/actor Alexandra Hulme), who adds to the off-beat ambiance with a siren like performance, and the Owl man himself, who brazenly stalks his prey, often in broad daylight.

The stately pile may be a genre cliché, but here, with inspired narrative and stylised photography and sound, a night in Baldurrock becomes a truly fearful proposition. Though I have to say, I'd actually like to meet the fiendish Owl man. I think he'd be quite enlightening.

A must see :)
