Independent Success!
4 November 2017 | by jessecodySee all my reviews

With the face of Theda Bara, and the attitude of Mila Jovovich, Victoria E. Donofrio does the Horror Heroine genre justice on many levels as Gayce, The Theta Girl.

A classic in the making, The Theda Girl, plays on the model theme of religious extremism versus the gritty underground, that seems as relevant now as the time period the style of the movie gives tribute to, and yet creates familiarity between protagonist and antagonist with a shared "vision" of the end of the world.

For a meager $14,000, Christopher Bickel and David Axe have managed to bring an intriguing, well versed, and visually spectacular piece of independent Cinema to fruition.

Exceptional debut for Director, Chris Bickel. We are all looking forward to him refining his technique and bringing forth more sensational Cinema.
