Truly unforgettable cinema.
9 November 2018 | by glencooksfoodSee all my reviews

Stilted acting, uninspiring dialogue and laughable cinematography are some of the best things about this film.

I'm all for using film to highlight social issues and when done respectfully can make for truly memorable cinema. When this is rushed, under funded and poorly cast you end up with a film such as this.

Sadly memorable only for it's short comings, 'River Runs Red' is at best laughable at worst unforgettable, but hey if you've nothing better to do with your evening give it a watch you may well answer the question "what would Ed Wood be doing now if he was a contemporary black / writer director?"
