COMING SEPTEMBER 2018
This time from Breaking Glass Pictures we get a deadly story of regret, birthdays and invisible pathogens.
Dana is a thirty-year-old woman struggling with her birthday, her relationship and her father. She and her father have been estranged for quite some time. The plan is for him to come to her birthday party to try to talk and make amends. But, that’s going to be difficult.
While prepping for the party, one of her friends finds a secret hidden room in her apartment building. When she goes to investigate she unleashes a deadly pathogen that she soon carries with her inside her body everywhere she goes.
Who will get out alive? Who will fall to the death that awaits? Is there any way to stop the spread of such a horrible fate?
You’ll have to find out for yourself.
I enjoyed this film. It’s a short one. It’s only about an hour and ten minutes, give or take. Yet, I found it to be the perfect length for such a story. If this had been a feature length film, they would have had to use some filler somewhere and it probably would have been a love story…yuck!!! (Why do people try to ruin a perfectly good gore movie or war movie with a love story???) Anyways, the love story aspect here is very minimal in the fact that it consists of knowing that our main character is in a relationship. That’s about it. So, no mushy gushy stuff. Yay Horror!!!
I thought the actors did pretty well in this movie. The only complaint about the acting, and it’s a small one, is that when they are “in pain” it wasn’t quite as convincing. I guess I feel they could have tried to act more like they were in agony or something. I don’t know. The portrayal of the misery just doesn’t fit the level of illness that we were seeing. But, other than that, I really liked this.
I’m always so interested in the stories of deadly pathogens and invisible killers that attack our bodies. The idea of a deadly disease that you can’t see and is airborne…that’s some scary stuff. I will tell you that the vomit in this movie is icky. It reminded me of milk mixed with cottage cheese. Seeing that come out of mouths can quite possibly make a stomach turn. So good going filmmakers!
I don’t think I could call this completely B-rate although it’s not quite top tier horror. Still most definitely worth watching. I will admit that the ending left me slightly confused, thinking I maybe missed something but, I went back and watched and I didn’t miss anything. Maybe some of you will be able to explain it to me one you’ve seen it. I have a theory but, I don’t want to spoil anything just yet.
Hope you all get to check this out!!
