Review

JOLTING. Minimum fuss and maximum tension... Steel trap finale --The New York Times

STUNNING. An uncommonly naturalistic terror tale... --LA Weekly

Product Description

Ti West s Trigger Man leads the charge in a new wave of stripped-down, scary movies fueled by seat-of-the-pants filmmaking ingenuity. Reggie, Sean, and Ray leave Manhattan for a day trip of deer hunting in Delaware, expecting to drink a few beers in the woods free of the city-life responsibilities that are slowly forcing the childhood friends apart. But with one well-aimed shot, a walk in the sun is transformed into a frantic and desperate fight for survival, as Trigger Man morphs from a character-driven rural amble into a smartly compact and radical survival thriller (Variety). Writer, director, and editor Ti West (The Roost, Cabin Fever II) expertly exploits audience expectations, using minimalist handheld photography to relentlessly build tension to a genuinely terrifying payoff (New York Sun). Presented in association with home-grown, low-budget shock maestro Larry Fessenden s Scareflix, from its smartly written (New York Times) script, to its down-to-the-bone verité look, Trigger Man is an uncommonly naturalistic terror tale (Village Voice) loaded with no nonsense craft and dramatic efficiency (Time Out New York). SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE: Audio Commentary by Director Ti West and Sound Designer Graham Reznick - Audio Commentary by Actors Reggie Cunningham, Ray Sullivan and Sean Reid - Videotaped Q&A from the Los Angeles Film Festival (15 min.) - Theatrical trailer - Presented in 5.1 Stereo Surround

The dvd made no sense and was so boring and poorly done that I had to fast forward through it.
Bill Wade
Sound is important to the film, unfortunately it can be overwhelming at times, even drowning out characters dialogue (luckily there isn't much dialogue huh?).
D. Wilson
If you're like me, you won't care who lives or dies or who the killer is - you'll just want the movie to hurry up and end already.

I was really looking forward to seeing this film, especially since I was a big fan of Ti West's last film, THE ROOST. That film had a very withdrawn, simplistic approach to genre material and Ti takes that approach even further with this film. I can see why people wouldn't like this film. The first half hour is very slow, but it builds to a tremendous payoff! When the violence strikes, it's quite shocking. The location work was breathtaking, especially towards the end of the film when our hero wonders through an adandoned factory. The film does require patience, which will probably be met with a lot of disdain for today's A.D.D. cinema-aficionados, but if you're looking for a different kind of movie-watching experience, I whole-heartedly recommend this flick! I can't wait to see what Ti West comes up with next!

Format: DVD
I really hate the fact that I had to give this a 3 star rating... director Ti West's first film, The Roost, was such an enjoyable ode to the minimalist horror films of the 70's that it felt like it was made distinctly for people like myself (you know, the guy who constantly rewatches movies like TCM, Halloween, Phantasm, Black Christmas, Dawn Of The Dead, etc., and rarely delivers praise to anything made past the new millenium... yeah, that guy). Instead of rabid bats that turn people into the living dead (!), this time around we get a story about three friends reconnecting for a hunting trip only to become prey themselves to a mysterious sniper. Now for the good and bad points...

THE GOOD:
- Feels almost like a documentary with the way it was filmed, putting you right there with the rest of the group.
- Characters look like they could be normal people you'd see on the street (as opposed to the gorgeous types often found in most movies), and are facing off against an all too real threat.
- Builds a nice sense of foreboding and uses the scenery to create some excellent atmosphere.
- Great effects when the bullets start flying (particularly the brain matter!).
- The music is fantastic! Thumping bass lines that echo back and forth while violens screech and stab at each other, superb stuff!
- For those that hope of making a movie with a dollar and a dream, here's proof that it's possible.

THE BAD:
- Feels like a documentary... filmed entirely with a handheld camera, often with shaky and out of focus results (a friend watching this with me said it made her sick).
- There are only 3 characters that share the majority of screen time (and only 6 all together) and about 30 lines of dialogue is spoken throughout the film.

Patient filmmaking, to say the least. As seems to be demonstrated by the array of reviews here, Trigger Man is not for everyone. But it worked for me ... The suspense was often painful, created by (yes) long stretches of silence without any dialogue ... but waiting for the horror to come (and it does come) and not knowing when or from where ... well it just had me squirming in my seat.

No fast-paced Quantum of Silence/Bourne-style editing here, and impatient viewers who aren't interested in anything but in-your-face fast cuts and loud explosions probably won't even connect to the tension that's building here ... but if you're tuned into that sort of wavelength, you'll enjoy this gripping little walk through the woods.
