TAGLINE: THIS IS NO ORDINARY NIP & TUCK
What the back DVD says:
Dr. Cranston is a successful plastic surgeon in Los Angeles until his daughter is horribly disfigured in a car accident that he caused. To ease his remorse, he tirelessly labors to replace the magled features of his sweet Maggie. Wanting his daughter to be perfect, Dr. Cranston seeks women with the perfect nose, perfect eyes, or perfect breasts for his daughter.
72 min's. Written by Jon Rosenberg produced and directed by Dave Reda who also stars in the movie.
AN INDIE FILM WITH SOME PROMISE OF FUTURE MASTERPIECES.
The movie is a perfect Indie horror movie with some amazing written parts that have an original touch of humor and horror mixed together. The direction for a new comer to the movie world Dave Reda is by far some of the best I have seen when it comes to Indie horror movies. The acting is very strong at times and sometimes can be a little corny and bad. The over all aspect to the movie is a well put together first time approach.
I was amazed at the opening. The dark approach and grainy feel to the camera lens gave it that realistic appeal to life. It was acted out like you and me who is reading This would be average people living out there lifes and going about there daily business.
The makeup was not half bad. The low budget appeal could be seen at times but does not effect the over all outcome to the movie. I think the only bad things at times was the added cornyness to the story. Such as the daughter Maggie playing that spoiled little rich girl type feel, which at times got on my nerves. The other odd approach to the movie was the father, clearly insane and really the movie did nothing to explain how he was simply falling apart, but living at the same time, but what do you expect from a simple Indie low budget horror movie.
I am floored at the original feel of this movie. It's a fun ride with so so acting and so so storyline. I would give it a watch to support Indie cinema, which is the most important thing any horror fan can do this day and age when it comes to the horror world. Rent it, buy it, spread the word so that Indie movies never die. The best thing a horror fan can do is pass up the big budget horror that tends to be trendy and just plain bad or so PG MPAA snore fest and give a new director the welcome mat into the horror world.
For Indie Horror fans it's a great watch. Go into IT like approaching a low budget movie with a director and writer that love's horror and wished to make a half way decent movie. Buy it and support Indie Horror.
AND NOW FOR A PERSONAL THOUGHT FOR HATERS OF INDIE HORROR:
