    Jim Mickle plays the scenario deadly straight and unintentionally exposes all of its attendant absurdities, leaving the cast stranded.

    There’s some fun to be had, as long as your idea of fun includes being grossed out.

MichaelOne of the best horror/thriller movies I've seen in the last couple of years. I love the Hawthornian Lovecrafting setting and mood. Michael Parks (Jean Renault from "Twin Peaks") is one of my favorite actors, and he delivers an outstanding performance here as the local village ME/doctor. The script is terrific it pulls you in without throwing in the standard horror shocks and scares. And it absolutely saves its best for last, so stick it out! Full Review »

There is such a feeling of despair through the whole ordeal that I became quite transfixed by the power of it. Far, far too many things go on at one time for this to be a one watch - there are deeper things in this movie than the visceral exterior. The movie flows toward the climax with unending vigor and dread that it grips you and the ending will leave you looking like a clueless teenager - the celery stick fell out of my mouth. Outstanding work that man. I give it 6 hurls out of 10 for gore and 3 sets of underwear out of 10 for fear. Full Review »

    They **** you up, your mum and dad.
    They may not mean to, but they do.
    They fill you with the faults they had
    And add some extra, just for you.
