Editorial Reviews

Director and co-writer Federico Zampaglione's terrifying film recalls Sam Peckinpah's ferocious "Straw Dogs" and Tobe Hooper's horror classic "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," yet it feels as immediate as today's headlines. Jake Muxworthy plays a young soldier who embarks on a mountain-biking trip, walks into a cafe and meets the love of his life (Karina Testa). Unfortunately, he also meets a pair of violent hunters who make him their prey after he defends the young woman from their sleazy advances. But what appears at first to be a vicious cat-and-mouse game set in treacherous terrain turns into a full-blown nightmare when these adversaries become the captives of a mountain dweller whose depraved plans for them soon become all too apparent. Both a relentless horror film and a searing account of the brutal after-effects of war, "Shadow" is a scream-inducing descent into an abyss of unspeakable terror.

Format: DVD
Shadow is one of the most interesting and underrated horror flicks that I've seen in a very long time. Despite the fact that it initially burns with a slow fuse, when the suspense finally grabs you, it doesn't let go.

The movie follows the story of an American soldier on a mountain biking trip in the European wilderness. After befriending a woman on a similar expedition, the two become the target of a pair of sadistic hunters. This may sound familiar, but the film eventually descends into something more disturbing than what you would expect.

If you're a gore fan, don't expect something as explicit as Hostel. The director keeps most scenes involving blood off-camera, but the technique is surprisingly effective. While there are only a handful of scenes involving pain, each one literally made me wince.

Without revealing too much, one of most interesting aspects of this film is the mountain-dwelling villain. From his appearance to his mannerisms, he is the very definition of the word creepy.

The less you know about this film before watching it, the more you will enjoy it. The rug is pulled from under you halfway through the movie, and the conclusion is filled with twists that you couldn't see from a mile away.

For this being only his second film, director Federico Zampaglione does a terrific job. The cinematography and editing are excellent, a surprise considering this movie went straight to DVD. Andrea Moscianese also serves up a dark rock score that lends beautifully to the film.

There are only three downsides. The first is that you're bound to be confused by some elements of the story, even if they add some mystery and suspense. The second is that the first half of the film drags on a bit.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Guy on April 5, 2011
Format: DVD
A man gets out of the military and goes riding bike in the Alps (?). Along the way he meets a French woman and two hunters with British accents who have a rebel flag on the dash of their vehicle. They get into a scuffle with these hooligans who hunt them down in a battle of life and death on a mountain that has haunted legends. They end up captured by a strange guy who looks like he came straight from an 80's Metallica video. While the captor is isolated he has 8mm films from wars and prison camps throughout the 20th century, including Iraq, which in all honesty never made it to actual "film." The forest around the house has all kind of "Rambo" booby traps. Note the scene by the lake when the good guys are in a hurry to get away on their bikes, they take the extra time to put on their helmets. Safety first.

The movie has 6 people in it. No nudity. No sex. The gore is not extremely graphic as we have been used to. Don't pay too much for it, it should be part of a $5.00 Walmart 4-play in a year or so. Three stars is pushing it.

In this movie nothing is as it seems, and I mean nothing! Especially to a veteran of the Iraq War who's dream trip of mountain biking in Europe is interrupted by horrors beyond imagining, horrors that at first seem worse than the horrors of war itself, but are they?

Through voice over in the beginning we learn that war veteran David (Jake Muxworthy) has written a letter home to his mother. Weary of the battle, he longs for freedom and looks forward to his passion for mountain biking. He tells his mother that a friend has let him know of a place in Europe where the biking and beauty is second to nowhere.

Scenery is superb throughout the introduction and captured with fine cinematography, but beauty and peace are marred by more sinister overtones when David stops in for a break from his ride at a mountain hideaway, The Shadow.

There are a few different possibilities presented for the origin of the film title, but in my opinion it is the shadow of war that is cast over this story.

The Shadow does a great job of misleading, and sets the viewer up for some effective thrills, suspense and twists.

While the first segment does move a little slow the plot will seem familiar to many viewers as two degenerate hunter pursue our hero and a girl through the wilderness. We start to get the idea that there is something else hunting them all. Soon the tough guys, the war vet and his girl are thrown into a nightmare that has nothing to do with the preceding half of the film

A gaunt, disturbing looking individual with sadistic intent (played by Nuot Arquint) takes over the second act, and the film shifts to dark, gritty style, reminiscent of the classic Nosferatu, though indeed more horrifically modern.
