Editorial Reviews

Eighteen years after his unexplained departure, Cornelius Rawlings (writer and director Michael Tully) returns to his family's Tennessee farm to find his parents dead, but little else different.  His brother Amos (Onur Tukel) works on grotesque expressionist paintings about football, while repressed neat- and Jesus-freak Ezra (Robert Longstreet, The Oregonian) tends to housekeeping religiously.  Cornelius, an unlikely athletic savant, hustles high schoolers in town to support his huffing habit.  When a toilet overflows and a familiar-looking plumber appears with his very beautiful, very young wife, the mystery of why Cornelius left starts to unravel. Blackly comic, touchingly human, visually striking, genuinely unsettling - this genre-bending, tonally unique film is unlike anything you've ever seen before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre and Fascinating December 23, 2011
Format:DVD
I was immediately drawn into the film Septien as the beginning credits were rolling because of the Bizarre yet Fascinating artwork that was featured. As I watched I realized they were painted by a main character the film surrounds itself around.
The art was genius in a sick kind of way.
The story focuses on 4 brothers who all have serious issues that slowly unfold as the film progresses.
One of the brothers returns after being gone for fifteen years and is welcomed back like it had only been a time span of six month or so.
I don't want to reveal much but it was billed as a Horror film ,I would not say it was in any kind of Horror Sub Genre but a mystery,Psychological drama with just enough Black comedy thrown in to keep it balanced. Listen very carefully to some of the dialogue and your jaw will drop plus there are a couple of scenes that are jaw dropping as well.
I was sucked in and even though it was quite slow paced I didn't even want to stop it for a bathroom break afraid I was going to miss the big payoff.
By the end you pretty much figure out what is and what isn't and the way they slowly slipped in pieces of the puzzle was subtly genius.

4.0 out of 5 stars SMOTHER THE DEMONS April 4, 2012
Format:DVD
This is an interesting film if you haven't read what it is about as you try to solve a mystery. Cornelius Rawlings (Michael Tully) returns home after an 18 year hiatus. He is moody and still has his demons. Why if left is unknown and why he bothered to come back is even more of a mystery. We find out that while in high school he was a jock. His brother Ezra (Robert Longstreet) has assumed the role of the family patriarch or matriarch. He attends church and is overly neat to the point of being a stereotypical gay. Brother Amos (Onur Tukel) has issues too. He spends his time in a shed making horrible drawings that depict sex and dismemberment. Wilbur Cunningham (Jim Willingham) is mentally slow and lives outside in a large truck tire.

The characters are "Scott Pilgrim" quirky, but clearly they have far deeper and darker issues. You want to know about their past which has shaped their present. The art show was totally bizarre. The movie was shot cheaply on 16MM for effect. This is a film for extreme indy lovers. Characters were well played.

F-bomb, only drawn nudity and sex...and rather poorly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing But Creative January 4, 2013
Format:DVD
If you hope to avoid violent sexual surrealist paintings or former victims of child sexual abuse, this film isn't for you. These 3 brothers are all "crazier'n sheethouse rats" as one character puts it watching a flavor of family dysfunction very few films get. It's not unlike the symbolism of "Tideland" by Terry Gilliam.
