This incredible indie film from first-time director Christopher Bickel (and based on a script written by David Axe) literally defies classification.
13 October 2017 | by jimbalayausSee all my reviews

This incredible indie film from first-time director Christopher Bickel (and based on a script written by David Axe) literally defies classification. This movie is part horror story, part counterculture drug cautionary tale, and part treatise dealing with the existential nature of the human condition and how we, as humans, are forced to make decisions (many of them of an important moral nature) on a daily basis related to those never-ending existential questions.

The casting of the actors in this film is second-to-none, when you consider that these fine actors are, for the most part, complete unknowns. Of course, these performances stand as a testament to the incredible direction by first-time director Christopher Bickel, who managed to coax such amazing performances from this actors—every one of whom shines in their various roles. It also speaks volumes about the strength of the script penned by David Axe.

This film making event somehow rode a kind of a perfect storm of all of these factors resulting in a film that is even better of all of the sum of its parts. (And I haven't even mentioned the beautiful cinematography, amazing old-school make-up and low budget special effects (that, believe me, you won't NOTICE are low budget)and the absolutely astounding soundtrack—which is well worth the price admission, alone!)

This fantastic film was produced on a veritable shoestring, and NONE of that shows. You need to see this movie in order to believe it. As for me, I can't wait to see what Mr. Bickel has in store for his next big film project. I hope he has the big studio money he so richly deserves backing him then. But for NOW, please don't miss this one!!!
