For March 4th- The Bleeding House

And again, we have come to another movie claiming to be a piece of classic American horror.  I don’t really have much to say about it at this point, so I suppose let’s get down to business.

Story/Writing: 1/2

Another good idea gone to waste.  A stranger comes to call on a family in  rural country home.  As he slowly begins to uncover pieces of the family’s past, it becomes clear who the monster really is.

Acting:1/2

Not great, but not terrible.  Patrick Breen, who plays the stranger, seems to be the only one putting forth any effort.

Photography/Set: 1/2

A decent set for the home.  It works to really bring the audience into their own homes, making the scenario much more frightening.  The photography, however, is pretty dull.  The low contrast in the outdoor scenes don’t help this.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

Pretty darn good blood effects.  Nicely visceral without being over the top.  The sound work is nothing award-worthy, and the music isn’t either.

Misc: 1/2

A decent little film, but I don’t know if it’s worth an endorsement from Tribeca Film.

VERDICT: 5.5/10

A good movie to use up a night in with some friends.
