"He kind of appeared out of nowhere, like campaign money."
10 March 2015 | by Reaper-of-SoulsSee all my reviews

This one line, being somewhat of a political person, I not only found it very funny, but I found it also perfectly describes the emergence of Justen Overlander. Seemingly from out of nowhere, he not only possesses the zany acting skills of Jim Carrey, minus the overacting & tired facial expressions, but he can also write a witty script and direct as well! He just seems to have a broad and natural ability to deliver his lines fluidly, without forcing them. With his film, THE BEQUEATHER, Mr. Overlander gives us a taste of things to come.

I am a lover of Independent Films, as I believe this is where the real talent, heart & soul and passion for filmmaking lies. It is truly amazing to see what can be accomplished on a restrained budget by a genuine lover of films and filmmaking. THE BEQUEATHER, as far as I know, is Mr. Overlander's first full-length feature film as a director. The choice to film in black & white was a great decision. As promised, it brought back memories of YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN. It also, though it is not a horror film, reminded me of the great classic film THE OLD DARK HOUSE (1932). It had a bit of that aura.

I think all the actors and actresses were very good in their roles. I am specifically looking forward to seeing more films with Justen Overlander, whether it's acting, writing, directing or all three. I have found it a bit difficult to find some of his films, but that will not stop me from continuing my search. More people need to see these films. These are low-budget, independent films done right and deserve a much broader audience. I wish nothing but the best for Mr. Overlander in all his future endeavors. His talents are immense.
