It is time for me to continue my horror movie marathon for the 2012 Countdown to Halloween. After yesterdays trip into Bucks County Pennsylvania, I decided to head to
for tonight’s entry. Of course, there are a lot of dark subjects and great
movies based in this state, but what I found was something decently obscure.
From Midnight Releasing the movie is Slaughter Creek from 2011/2012. Texas
Plot/ A film crew follows a young girl with aspirations of becoming a successful actress in
Failing to find work, she arrives in Hollywood Austin, to star in what
she believes is a soft-core porn film. After discovering the screenplay, the
film crew realizes that this is no ordinary film and it could lead to horrific
consequences for this naive young girl. Texas
As any horror fan knows, indie films can run the gambit from outstanding to putrid. Fortunately, this one is closer to outstanding and an enjoyable watch. Primarily a dark drama, there is some blood, violence and taboo elements (originally titled Snuff) that really work. Sure, it is not perfect, but the storyline, the acting, cinematography, and sound quality are all far above the typical low budget stereotype. On the downside, some of the characters were blah, and offered very little. On top of that, this flick seemed like there was a lot more potential within the story that could have been brought to life, which would have taken it up a notch higher. In the end, this extremely entertaining venture into a dark world, and movie was worth watching. It is not for everyone but if you like dark dramas, check it out.
