A little known gem
8 February 2019 | by giammarcorSee all my reviews

This is one of those movies that makes you initially think it's just another low budget, 90's horror/thriller. But, the more you watch it, the more you get pulled into the surreal, hyper pubescent world of a 15 year old boy brain. Having been one of those 15 year old boys, albeit many years ago, I could empathize with the main character's lonely but inquisitive existence. Granted, my father was not nearly as heinous as his, but there were certainly times when I found myself totally intolerant to eveything he said. The fantasies and dreams were remarkably similar to what would have been racing through a 15 year old's subconcious.

Before long, I found myself forgetting about the low budget production and amateurish acting and began believing the characters and truly engrossed in the story.

Kudos to Peter Hall for a well written plot that had me completely smiling at the end. This was no fantasy, this was truly something that could happen.

Oh, and did I mention the musical score, courtesy of Gang of Four? Every last nerve in my body was tingling to the screeching guitar and melancholy riffs. If you dont love this movie, you must be a snob. This is a workman like, blue collar movie that you wont soon forget.
