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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerfully Dark & Unpredictable Horror Flick April 4, 2011
By Compay
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nothing is more scarier than war. September 13, 2011
By Fizzle
Format:DVD
This is a neat little film that is worth it because it reminds us that the wars that we readily engage in far out scare the most spookiest boogie man that any of our imaginations can conjure.

3.0 out of 5 stars JOHNNY GOT HIS BIKE 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.

The truth is I expected this movie to be a little bit out of the ordinary, but it really wasn't so far from the average horror film all things considered. I will admit though that the film has one redeeming aspects about it, in that that the villian in this story is truly creepy, but not as much as I expected based on reviews by other members I read, none the less he's pretty damned creepy compared to a lot of film villians that I have seen over the past 10 years or so. Other than that the film is pretty typical of the basic horror movie. I was suprised to discover that the movie isn't very gory at all. There is some very mild gore here and there, but it's typical of a PG-13(maybe a soft R) kind of gore. But the film at times is fairly disturbing which should earn it a strong R rating, but if you are familair with truly disturbing cinema, even the milder stuff such as Hostel, you will be dissapointed. Hostel was far more disturbing than this movie. And there are movie way more disturning than Hostel, Still the production values are pretty good, the creep factor is there as well through most of this. The acting is just average. But the real gem is the villian who while not the scariest I have ever seen will haunt me to one degree or another for awhile. Worth a look if you are not expecting to be blown away.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Indie must!!! November 20, 2012
By PR GUY
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A horror/thriller fans dream! This indie film is everything a horror fan wishes for. The eerie settings alone makes your skin crawl. I have always been an independent film buff and this one is a testimony to the type of surprises you can get if you venture out and try new horror that is not created in Hollywood. I gave it all 5 stars because it scared me...I felt sympathy for all of the characters (no matter how nice or evil they were) and I loved the ending. Give this one a chance.
