A Bothered Conscience (2006)

This is truly my favorite time of the year. Halloween is almost here, with the annual October  countdown beginning two days ago. This Halloween is even more special because that marks my retirement from the US Navy. Retirement ceremony and trick or treating on the same day equals awesome! To start the month, my first review is on the 2006 flick A Bothered Conscience.

Plot/ Deep in the remote Arkansas backwoods, a father passes on the traditions of the Ozark mountain men to his 5 year-old son. Under his strict and cruel guidance, young Lucas learns to protect the family land at all costs, and hones the skills of the hunt that have been handed down from generation to generation. But their prey is no ordinary game.

To start, this low budget entry is far from perfect, but there is something here that many lack and it works. Yes, the acting is uneven, the scripting so-so, and the effects are decent. Yet, the plot and storyline (including the twist ending) make this a lot better than it probably should have been. While it is far from perfect, it may be one of the better entries on this set. If you have spent the five bucks already, watch it, if you have not spent money on this collection, do not go out of your way to buy it for this one.
