Editorial Reviews

A young boy named Wendell Graves witnesses the brutal murder of his parents in their own bedroom. He watches in horror as a masked man stabs the couple repeatedly with a crowbar. Wendell escapes and spends the next 15 years of his life silently locked up in his aunt's farmhouse. There she plays the innocent caretaker, brainwashing him into believing that anyone and everyone who enters his parents' home is an intruder who must meet the same fate as they did. Crowbar is a thrilling, slasher film in the vein of Halloween and Psycho that dives deep into the psyche of jealousy and hatred.

Loved the movie. Then again I must admit I'm a bit biased being related to one of the supporting actors. It is a fun movie to watch in several aspects besides that. The music for the most part is excellent and helps set the mood. Natasha did an excellent job as well as Elizabeth Schrey who played the part of Nancy the neighbor. Not bad for a first film by Scott.

The title tells you what to expect and I wasn't disappointed on that score. It's Amityville meets Texas Chainsaw with a little Stephen King/Shirley Jackson/creepy rustic village thrown in. What I didn't expect were the classy production values--nice lighting, camera work and makeup/effects far beyond the otherwise obviously modest budget. I was happy to get away from the standard handheld look and thrilled to see an actual dolly being used. The wide-angle shots and overall style gets pretty wild at times, which sometimes works but not always. That goes for the acting, directing and writing as well--bold and brave but sometimes just too much and too on the nose. I'd also cut some of the early "scenic" shots short--they felt like filler to me and unnecessary since the film is 10 minutes over the standard 90-minute feature anyway.

The long-chord music style seems a little old and I could have used less of the "indie piano background" too, but the rest of the soundtrack is top-notch.

A crowbar is a pretty nasty weapon, but worse is if the whole neighborhood is in on the killings, or maybe even worse is if they just don't care. The villain wears a welding mask and Leatherface's old apron, which is plenty scary, especially when the light flares off that mask. The back-story legend that underpins the killings lends a gruesome, unrelenting inevitability to the proceedings.

All in all, still a horror film but one with higher aspirations, and well-worth watching.

Wendall (Kevin Phillips/ Kevin George) witnesses the killings of both his parents on the eve of their leaving town. The killer used a crowbar and wore a welder's mask. A decade later Alex (Michael Ray Clark) and Ronnie (Natasha Timpani) move into said house and the killings start all over again. The town and neighbors are overly apathetic to the situation.

The opening credits was tough to sit through with an annoying sound track. The photo of the dead/barren tree makes it way from the opening credit to throughout the film. Most likely a symbol of the barren Aunt who is introduced late. The film had a couple of good characters, neighbor Nancy (Elizabeth Schrey) being one of them.

Overall the plot was one we have seen too many times. They tried too hard to create good support characters, they failed to create decent main characters. The killer is apparently dragging around a smoke machine as they over did that effect.

1 1/2 stars. Written and directed by Scott Phillips who was a Russian soldier extra in the original "Red Dawn."
