Editorial Reviews

For the first time ever the famous horror story by Rudyard Kipling comes to the big screen. Starring Ellen Muth (Dead Like Me Showtime series) and New York Independent film legend Debbie Rochon. It is the tale of two heroes who lose their way fighting off a silver faceless leper in the woods. The film has strong female roles. This moral tale shows the repercussions for the use of torture and has deep political and religious themes all bundled into a horror film that runs a festival friendly 72 action packed minutes.

When I was about halfway through MARK OF THE BEAST, I paused the movie for a moment to reflect; I was having a hard time deciding whether or not the filmmakers were trying to make a serious horror movie or a spoof. Yes, as much as it chagrins me to say, this film is simply not very good. I had high expectations, too, because I'm actually a fan of Kipling's works; and although the film follows the story very well, the execution is unfortunately lacking.

First off, I'll start by mentioning the good. The film has an amazing score that accents it perfectly. It is haunting and melodious at the same time, which in turn sets an ethereal mood, a perfect backdrop in which to tell this story.

Also, the adaptation of the original short story is almost perfect. The filmmakers definitely did their homework and studied the source material in-depth before they wrote the script. This is, however, a good thing and a bad thing. It is impressive because they didn't take too many liberties with the original story; but because they followed it so much, it doesn't really work in a real-world setting.

Let me explain that last comment: part of the allure of Kipling's short story is that it was written in a time period when people didn't know much about foreign lands and the people inhabiting them. As a result, stories written in faraway lands like India had an air of mysticism about them. Such can be said for the story of the MARK OF THE BEAST. But trying to instill that air in modern day tales is more difficult. In this aspect, the film simply does not work for me; the air in this film is non-existent. It feels like a group of people went into the woods behind my house and shot this film.

I think it is this lacking feeling that overshadows the whole film.

This is an impressive independent film that was shot in only 10 days with a budget of about 6 thousand dollars. Local filmmakers did the best they could given their resources to bring Rudyard Kipling's "Mark of the Beast" to life in a modern-day setting. Debbie Rochon is a joy to watch on screen.

This film also has a fantastic score and the gritty, 80s movie look is very authentic. I really enjoyed this film and everyone who didn't needs to stop comparing things like this to big-budget Hollywood films.

Great make-up effects. The leper looks pretty incredible. Cool retro B-movie.
