Format: DVD
Beware: spoilers! Jacob isn't exactly a good film but it gets points for being highly idiosyncratic. It reminded me of the 1970's when some filmmaker would come out of nowhere to make a weird horror flick for the drive-in circuit and then never be heard from again. What Jacob lacks in slickness it more than makes up for in personality, which makes it a much more interesting watch than most indie horror movies that go straight to video and which are made by people with film school educations and technical skills but no actual ideas. Jacob concerns a dysfunctional family in late 1970's Texas--an abused waitress, her violent, alcoholic boyfriend and her two children--a sweet little girl and her towering, speechless older brother. There are also weird flashbacks involving the siblings biological father who discovers an Evil Dead style book under the floorboards of a house he has inherited. This particular element lets you know you're watching a horror movie, although it's never really smoothly integrated into the rest of the movie. Jacob doesn't actually seem like it even is a horror movie until well into the second half. When Otis the drunk kills the little girl in a fit of violent rage Jacob rips him limb from limb--literally, then goes on a killing spree. The townspeople send a lynch-mob after Jacob but the would be vigilantes keep ending up dead themselves instead. The murders are gruesome but more Monty Python or early Peter Jackson than Saw--it's likely viewers will be more amused than disturbed by the carnage. The movie doesn't build to much dramatically although there is a pretty funny punchline at the end that seems to come from nowhere. Jacob is worth the price of a rental, if not necessarily something you will want to add to your collection.

Format: DVD
Otis (Larry Wade Carrell) is the town drunk. He is not the likeable Otis from Mayberry, but one that abuses his overly dependent punching bag girlfriend and waitress Edith (Krystn Caldwell). Edith has two children. Sissy (Grace Powell) is the wiser and younger of the two. Jacob (Dylan Horne) is the mentally challenged Tor Johnson looking guy. He is not a very nice person either and he has a wonderful head twitch.

This all sets up for a darling of a slasher film. However 30 minutes into the film, there is a scene that makes you go "huh?" It is an interesting scene, one that has the potential to change the direction of the film and make it something you didn't expect. Unfortunately this aspect was never developed to its potential, as it appears writer/director Larry Wade Carrell did not know what to do with this "twist" once he introduced it, which is sad.

The acting was not top notch, along with some of the dialouge, it was a shade campy. This made the film lighter and more palatable than a straight slasher. There was plenty of blood, but the gore special effects were minimized as much of the bloodfest takes place just out of the camera's eye.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

This film had potential -- but, in the end, the bad acting is too distracting. Not all the acting is bad. The little girl Sissy (Grace Powel) is an excellent natural actress. I'm sure we will be seeing more from her in the future. She was the best actor in this film, and she's only maybe 10-12 yrs old. She is a good actress by any standards.

The second major flaw in the film is the fact that the director forgot to present a clear plot. I'm sure it was in his head, but we don't see it on the screen (where it counts). The supernatural aspect is only hinted at, not delved into. There is a supposed haunted house, where a mysterious book is found by Jacob's father. The director uses a shorthand means to suggest that the father is possessed by this book. Yes, it is very "iffy" and not well-done. We simply see the father rapidly reading the book, painting the house red (he inherited the house), reading the book, painting, etc. That's it. Then he walks into the local cafe and erupts into violence, killing a bunch of people. No explanation given. Then Jacob is mysteriously drawn to the old spooky house (no reason given.) So, aside from the bad acting, this major plot flaw renders the film inconsequential. Too bad, since the photography and film score are pretty good. The special effects/gore effects are pretty good. There is simply no linkage between the actions and the supernatural element --- which is supposed to be the core of the film. What happened to the main plot point?

The worst acting from a major character comes from Jacob's mother Edith (Krystn Caldwell). Contrast her vocal inflections with those of the little girl. One is totally play-acting, the other is totally "in the moment" acting.

Any film which quotes Jim Croce in the script will at least receive a modicum of my attention. A true Seventies-flavored, B horror flick, replete with handlebar moustaches, vintage '60s/'70s era automobiles, and wooden acting...the stuff cult films are made of. Take the Swanson tv dinner out of the freezer ( Apple Cobbler a must ), dig out the Jiffy Pop popcorn, and enjoy the trip.
