Benjamin Thomas and co. - pure magic !!
13 November 2018 | by pauleyc2002See all my reviews

This is gem of a movie ----the characters are very believable ..Eric Wolfgang Nelson is scary -good as Ba'al satans right hand man ----his casual manner and dreadful demands were spot on --at one point in the film I had to look thru my hand because I didn't want to experience what I was seeing -that's powerful .....Baals makeup and costume was perfect- mesmerizing as this horror flick might be with a character like Ba'al ...being a musician myself I was completely drawn into Don and his new found talent on the violin ----his syren song is very effective ...watching the gradual madness overtake the characters was gut-wrenching and the timeline jumps are perfection .....the poor writer who is goofy and not able to talk to women is very engaging and I felt like I would have done very much the same thing -this is a fantastic indie film that deserves praise for what they accomplished ..I still brood and wonder if in reality this plays out a thousand times a day on our world unseen but not for those caught up in such a tragic horror as their time is short and there is no escape expect by.......... truly hoping this film brings some well-deserved notoriety to all involved in the film........Bravo !!
