Formidable eeriness
29 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

Imbued with creepiness from the opening, this is a fabulous ride into psychological horror - I enjoyed it more than I thought I would!

It's a throwback to the old ghost stories, with palpable atmosphere I haven't experienced in a horror movie for a long time. In recent years (if we are talking mainstream), I think Insidious is a movie which almost deliver's this sort of atmospheric flavour, but Lord Of Tears isn't a big Hollywood production, it is independent, so this achievement is impressive indeed and built on the sheer talent of the film makers alone. It's also refreshing to watch a movie of this genre with none of the Hollywood pretensions; it's stripped bare of any unnecessary trimmings or overwrought special effects – so it's back to basics, making it natural, raw and authentic.

I would love to give a breakdown of my favourite parts, but I don't want spoil it; so I can only recommend it as a fan of the genre. In time, this should garner a cult (if not, mainstream) following.

I look forward to future projects & I hope this reaches the larger audience it deserves. Beautiful to watch & equally frightening, in both vision & sound, I definitely got my horror fix today……Now breath slowly…it's only a movie.
