Well, I will say that "Caliban" (aka "The Banished") wasn't your average run-of-the-mill horror movie, for better or worse. I suppose that means that some might not overly enjoy the movie as it turned out to be.
I found it to be adequate. It wasn't an overly thrilling movie experience, but it did offer nice enough entertainment to make it watchable. However, I did like that the movie wasn't just another average mainstream horror movie. So writer Tigre Haller and director David Bohorquez definitely managed to do something right here.
The atmosphere in the movie was the most interesting actually, because it had a sense of isolation and foreboding dread to it. That was definitely something that I liked, because it added a lot of flavor to the overall movie.
The acting in the movie was adequate, although I must say that Tigre Haller definitely carried the majority of the movie with his performance. Mind you, that this movie has a small cast ensemble, so you get to see the same people a lot on the screen.
"Caliban" wasn't also a movie that was overly predictable, and I must say that the storyline actually proved enjoyable enough to me, and it was a nice moment when you come to realize what was really going on.
Now, for a horror movie, then "Caliban" wasn't really outstanding. It was more of a suspenseful thriller in my opinion. But hey, a matter of preference and taste, and just how weathered and seasoned you are to the horror genre, I suppose.
Initially I was going to settle on a mediocre rating for the movie, but I found that director David Bohorquez actually managed to do something great with subtle additions in the movie, which actually brought the movie out of a mediocre slump. As such, my rating is a six out of ten stars for "Caliban". Keep in mind, though, that this might not actually be something for just everyone in the audience.
