There are a few plot holes but nothing too serious, and the locations are appropriately eerie without too much effort. This is not a fast-paced film so it would not be appreciated by the slice & dice crowd, but anyone that enjoys a decent ghost story will appreciate it. Worth seeing. 4 out of 5 stars.
I have to be honest: I had never heard of LAST KIND WORDS before I found it in my mailbox. But sometimes, that is the best way to watch a film...if you go into it with no prior knowledge, then you won't take any preconceived notions with you. That's exactly what I did with this film; I didn't even read the cover or the press release before I watched it. And I'm glad, too...this is an excellent film, and it was a nice surprise!
This film is striking on several levels. It is visually appealing, the acting is superb, and the story itself is riveting and original. You really can't ask for much more in a movie.
LAST KIND WORDS is shot very well, and I have to tip my hat to the cinematographer. There are many haunting shots in this film, and they add greatly to the suspense and the drama. I would even go so far as to say it is some of the best cinematography I've seen this year.
The film has a simplistic feel to it, which is as it should be for a rural Kentucky setting. But it also has a bleak and vivid sense to it as well; Eli's family life is less than desirable thanks to his father, and this enlivens the drama amidst the tension of the plot.
The story of LAST KIND WORDS is the true winner in the film for me, however. It is a unique ghost story of sorts, and it's final images will linger in your mind for a while after the credits roll. I particularly like how we, as the audience, realize things are not as they seem...but in a different manner than expected. This is very good storytelling.
If I were forced to find a negative with this film, I don't think I could. It looks great, it's made well, and it entertains. This is truly a fun and chilling film. It hits shelves next week, so make a note to give it a look.
When Eli mentions meeting Amanda to Waylon, the normally affable man becomes enraged, telling Eli to stay away from her. It is soon revealed that everyone from Waylon, to Amanda, to Eli’s parents are harboring old secrets that have been buried for years. When Eli disobeys Amanda by climbing the ancient fence, he finds the body of a young girl, hung by her neck in a tree. It is now Amanda who becomes infuriated, threatening to harm Eli
Last Kind Words is a slow-moving, low energy supernatural thriller that never engages the viewer. The plot is predictable and doesn’t try to hide it. On top of that it’s just plain silly and loaded with padding that makes it seem even longer than 87 minutes. A sub-plot with Eli’s old girlfriend sneaking out from the city to visit him is a prime example of an added plot threat that serves no purpose other than to up the running time.
The acting is also substandard by everyone involved including the veteran Douriff. I know he has specialized in these off-kilter roles for decades but just when you thought he might have a chance to play a more normal role, he makes the predicted turn to bat-crap crazy. Spencer Daniels who plays Eli, is an experienced young actor with a cherub-like face but he doesn’t have the mettle to carry the bulk of the film as he is being asked to do.

Not so great if you want to be scared. It is kinda like Twilight meets Romeo and Juliet. That is all I have to say because saying anymore would be a spoiler.Published on October 19, 2013 by B. D. Pinnix
It's been said that when you get to the heart of evil, nothing is there. This movie is the cinematic equivalent for a ghost story: when you get to its heart, nothing is there. Read morePublished on September 11, 2013 by Hinkle Goldfarb
