Horror Review


OK
Dante Tomaselli (Desecration) sent me the DVD of his latest horror flick, aptly titled Horror, with the disclaimer that it should be watched at night, with the lights off, and in stereo. Unfortunately I needed the lights, so I could follow along with the plot synopsis of this confusing splatter-fest.

More perplexing than Mulholland Drive, the movie follows five disturbed teens who have escaped from drug rehab and immediately start on a drug-and-slaughter bender. This launches a series of visions of the dead (including The Amazing Kreskin in a cameo role as a priest/hypnotist), oddball possessions, a zombie army, murders galore, and the appearance of a large, black goat. Tomaselli calls the narrative "deliberately ambiguous," which makes me extremely grateful to know that I'm not crazy in failing to comprehend the convolutions of Horror.

Desecration Review


OK
Indie horror is always a hit-and-miss affair, but true splatter fans will find a lot to like in Dante Tomaselli's Desecration, a truly bizarre tale of a boy (Danny Lopes) who accidentally kills a nun and then suffers the otherworldly consequences.

As cinematic oddities go, Desecration ranks right up there with Eraserhead, rarely making much sense but creeping you out every chance it gets. Made on a $150,000 budget, the film has a lot of big-budget flourishes made possible by clever camerawork and odd lighting coupled with good sound effects. Does it work as a story? No, but it is genuinely creepy and would probably work better as atmosphere for your Halloween party, what with its demonic nuns and clown-men, than anything else.
