Hair of the Dog (2003)
A Great Independent Thriller
I could go on a rant about how the above "review" is a shameless plug for the director... but I won't. I'm too much of a nice guy to do that so I will just talk a lil about this film and why it works and works well.
Like with any movie, the writing is first and foremost the most IMPORTANT aspect of the film-making process. Without it, you have nothing. Thankfully, "Hair of the Dog" features an incredibly well written script from a very talented writer by the name of Tim Clark. The dialogue is very witty and really gives the actors some wonderful material to work with. It would be really nice to see Tim get more projects as a result of his work on this film.
Also, the film features some great thrills, tremendous atmosphere and features a nice eerie score that really enhances the mood of the film. It may be a short flick, but it's effective and accomplishes what it sets out to do and it does so in spades.
Hopefully someone with distribution capabilities will take notice of this independent gem and release it unto the public for many more of you to check out. With all of the rubbish we have been handed by Hollywood as of late (i.e. remakes, pointless sequels/prequels, etc.), it would be awesome to see a "good" film - an original film - get pushed into the spotlight for a change. Let's hope so!
