SUBLIME was an experiment on nearly every level. Raw Feed is a Warner Bros. experiment to make "horror" films within the BROADEST definition of the genre. Films designed to be released directly to DVD.
John Shiban, Tony Krantz and Daniel Myrick would each make a film in 15 days for a budget of roughly 1.5 million dollars. Any one of them essentially could do whatever they wanted to do - to play into the genre, to satirize it, to bend it. Mr. Krantz's notion was to take the present atmosphere of fear and doubt that has pervaded our world; the very real statistics about "health care"; and the horror of the Terry Schiavo case, and make a movie.
My involvement in the film came out of my close friendship with Tony. Inspired by an Ambrose Bierce short story "An Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge"...the mystery of coma consciousness...the idea that when you close your eyes, your visual experience is limited to what you can remember...we crafted the script.
Trying to capture our version of a fear-and-incident-inspired "coma consciousness" led to the film's intentionally languorous and lurid pace. It was a specific choice. Right or wrong, we were determined to stay true to George's vision: George is stuck in a 10-month-plus Persistent Vegetative State within which all of the things that he worries about manifest.Read more ›
The acting is quite impressive, and so is the writing and cinematography. Kudos to all of the individuals who were involved in the making of this film as I find that they have all gone above and beyond their call of duty considering the time and budgetary challenges that this movie presented.
I recommend this film to anyone who enjoys stories which challenge you and make you think and talk about what you just saw. If movies like Memento, Insomnia, Jacob's Ladder and anything that Lynch or Cronenberg have made adornes your DVD collection, then Sublime will make a good addition!
This might possibly be the greatest horror movie I've ever seen.
If not, it's definitely up there.
The line on the cover of the box states "reminiscent of a really great "Twilight Zone" episode.
I grew up on "Twilight Zone" episodes.
I was a "Twilight Zone" junkie.
I had "Twilight Zone" with my cereal in the morning.
If I could, I would inject "Twilight Zone" straight into my brain.
Heck one New Years Eve (or was it 4th of July??)I stayed up for three days straight just to tape all the "Twilight Zone" episodes without the commercials.
(So there's my credentials.)
And I positively loved this movie. Thought it was brilliant.
Up my alley?!?!
This movie was living in my apartment building!!!
What makes this movie frightening.....
No, what makes this movie scary as (....) is that it deals with a modern problem, a fairly common problem.
A problem that is very possible.
And they based this problem around something that every man eventually has to do.
Blown away doesn't begin to describe what this movie did to me.
This flick blasted me off my futon, out the window, and onto my neighbors lawn.
I felt like I got kicked in the chest by a bionic-kangaroo.
If you're looking for psychological horror, look no further.
This movie does for hospitals, what "Psycho" did for motels.
Really scary stuff here, 'cause it happens every day.
I don't want to give anything away, and if you read the reviews, some of them might ruin the impact this flick will have.
If you're a serious horror fan, and definitely if you're a "Twilight Zone" fan;
I absolutely DARE you to watch this, you will so NOT be disappointed.Read more ›
