Speak No Evil (2013)

Luckily, for me, the weather has not been too bad over the past few days, and in turn, I have not had to deal with a lot of craziness on the roads. Couple that with the fact that I little ahead on my college work and now I have time to focus on the blog. Next, up for review is the 2013 no-budget indie possession flick Speak No Evil.

Plot/ When all the children in a small town become possessed, one mother refuses to believe that her daughter is lost to the devil and will do whatever it takes to keep her alive.

Movies about possessed children are often hit and miss, especially when they are dealing with large groups of them, and that was the case with this one. Sure, the storyline was interesting (albeit underdeveloped) and the acting was decent, the children were creepy, but that was not enough to push this up a notch. Between the uneven pacing, lack of atmosphere, and many clich├ęs, the overall horror experience was lacking. In the end, this movie did have some potential, but did not come close to matching it. While not for everyone, this no-budget indie flick definitely has some rough edges.
