'Death' has been watching her all her life and now sees this as an opportunity, breaking the rules he takes her soul before she dies hoping that by exposing the forces that manipulated and consumed her soul, will convince her to accept his offer.

Hearts in eyes, loved it!
29 August 2018 | by exotic-74444See all my reviews

First of all, I LOVE Horror movies, my fave genre of all films (horror rom/com would be totally awesome) Kick in the suspense of The Lurking Man, you had my attention at the get go. Totally loved the beginning how the actors and the editor (sound & picture) made a strong pom pom feeling. The protagonist popped as though she was being revived Drew me in, in a big way. Great work from all involved' I felt fear in a good way, yet felt real sad for her... All the actors in this indie film rocked. Cailean and Deaths make up was so cool! Would love a part two, to see Chilean as the Angel of Death.
