After spending another evening at the softball field, it was a relaxing evening with some decent horror flicks. During that time, it was hard not to think that not only do three of the daughters return to school in the morning, but also the twins turn 11; crazy, very crazy. My movie for this thought provoking moment, the 2012 indie flick Kiss the Abyss.
Plot/ When a young woman is brutally killed by an intruder, her husband and estranged father conspire to bring her back from the dead with the help of a mysterious desert dweller. Soon after she awakens, she begins to realize that something is horribly wrong.
As usual, I had very low expectations when I picked this one up. Yes, I know that is typical when I randomly grab something, but hey, it is honest. Fortunately, those expectations were quickly turned around. This flick had a strange, thought provoking premise, interesting characterization and an entertaining feel. Sure, some of the acting was over-the-top and uneven and the effects were just OK, but that did little to bring this one down. In the end, this indie flick was a lot better than some options out there and is truly a complex endeavor. If you are like me and love weid movies, you should like this one.
