Good for low budget
I rented this movie because I watch a ton of Indies and love horror.
Though it wasn't scary I was surprised by how beautifully shot this
film is. I appreciate the grainy, home made looking movies too. They
are fun but this does not look like low budget and the acting is way
better than any low budget indie I've ever seen. It's not a blockbuster
like The Ring but if you can appreciate independent films than it sets
a new standard. There is Lifetime movie element to the story but I
thought that it was entertaining. Maybe a couple holes in the plot but
the ending gave me goosebumps. I say it was worth my four dollars.
Don't expect an Academy award type film. Just appreciate for what it
A total surprise, very good.
First of all, this is a real slick film. Too slick for my D movie
cravings. I mean, low micro budget flicks usually should look and feel
like crap, and there is a charm to those movies, what makes me love
them, the underdogs, the ones without all the fancy Hollywood stuff.
But this film totally surprised me, from frame one, it looks awesome
and it should not be like this. I congratulate Jose Cassella for
photographing a solid piece of entertainment. Filmmakers take notice,
this is how independent films, specially micro budget indie films
should look like.
Loved the story, my father suffers from Tinnitus, so the use of that
condition in the story line was a masterstroke.
I got this Tuesday from Blockbuster and I did hesitate at first,
somehow the cover didn't do it for me. But I took the chance and you
all should take a chance on this little gem.
Its not for everyone, as I read here among other comments, but for me
this is one of the best Indie "horror" films I've seen...ever. I don't
know if I should say "horror", it really isn't a horror film, its more
like a drama with a few small touches of gore.
Also, the extras are gold, pure gold. The short film included, its
called "Wish", its even better than the film!. and the Tinnitus PSA
that is also on the extras is simply amazing, to the point and it
contains a message that needs to be spread, people need to know about
the damages of Tinnitus.
A surprise, truly a surprise..
