One night after enjoying The ABCs of Death 2, I was able to grab a copy of another movie I have been looking forward to. While this one is not an anthology, it is another independent entry that I believed everyone should have on his or her watch list. After watching this indie flick, Starry Eyes, I know that is the case.
Plot/ A hopeful young starlet uncovers the ominous origins of the Hollywood elite and enters into a deadly agreement in exchange for fame and fortune.
Indie horror is such a roller coaster. Sometimes you are blown away, while at other times you cannot wait for a film to end. In this case, I was drawn in and wanted more. Starry Eyes is an interesting watch that created a dark and unnerving atmosphere that was impeccable within the realistic aspects of the storyline. Couple that with some solid performances and some unexpected blood, guts, and gore and you have a winner. Yes, there were some predictable and clichéd moments, but that does not matter with this one as the finely crafted characters and the sadistic graphic horror elements blend in perfectly. In the end, this was an extremely entertaining trip into the occult rituals that are rumored to be commonplace with the Hollywood (and world) elites. If you have not seen it, give it a shot, it must be seen.
