A fragile young woman, who has tried to escape her dark past, returns to the family’s estate for a funeral. She must relive her previous traumas and confront the true source of her family’s guilt – With flashes of Kubrick and Argento Christian Neuman’s directorial debut is one of the BEST psychological horror movies for many a year, from it’s unravelling story that untangles the deeper you get, it’s giddy inducing camera work to it’s sumptuous use of color SKIN WALKER is a must watch, a film that will sit comfortably amongst my favorite movies of 2020 with a phenomenal performance by Amber Anderson who takes us on a ride through the broken and disturbed mind of human emotion : also great to see horror veteran Udo Kier giving us another creepy turn and hat’s off to Ferreira Virginia for her terrific costume design’s that fit so well in Neuman’s haunting landscape : So if your after a well written, spine-tingling Film Night then I’d highly recomend Skin Walker my words don’t do this movie justice… it’s that good ★★★★½
I must admit I was not a fan of Jean-François Richet‘s miserable remake of Carpenter’s moody, epic Assault on Precinct 13 but that I can now forgive after watching his latest thriller Blood Father that stars Mel Gibson playing an ex-con who reconnects with his estranged daughter and kicks some ass in the process – Gibson looks great, he has obviously bulked up, his skin looks weather beaten looking every bit the menacing no-nonsense ex-con the role required, nobody plays mean, angry, gun tooting, revenge shooting better than this snarly Aussie, like most great film stars you can’t help but admire his work and in Blood Father this is Gibson firing at his absolute best – but this is not a one man show, on screen Gibson’s backed up nicely by Erin Moriarty an exciting young actress who plays his daughter in the film & the talented William H Macy who delivers a sound performance playing his sponsor & friend – so whether your a fan of Mel Gibson or not (and I most certainly am) Blood Father is one helluva movie, it’s fast paced action, sumptuous cinematography and it’s 80s style one liners has already catapulted this thrill ride into one of my favorite movies of the year….
