Bizarrely Quirky, Uber-Creepy and Definitely Old-School Film-Making, but With an Extremely Dark Fresh Twist!
28 July 2016 | by KissEnglishPastoSee all my reviews

........................................................from Pasto,Colombia...Via: L.A. CA., CALI, Colombia...and ORLANDO, FL

TO MOM....These are the last words to appear on the screen after end credits for GRACE. (You see, sometimes it pays to watch the credits to the very end!) Now if GRACE had been MY baby, (We're speaking metaphorically here, of course!) The absolute LAST person on earth I would have dedicated it to would have been MY MOM! Well, that is unless my goal were getting her to disown me!

Bizarrely quirky, Uber-creepy and I would say, definitely old-school film- making, but with an extremely dark fresh twist. The psychological equivalent of walking on eggshells inside your brain while running jagged fingernails across your mind's blackboard ...And it's a Canadian flick!

Reviews here abound with Film "A" meets Movie "B" examples. Here is my take to try a give you sense of the GRACE's impact: Director Paul Solet, at heart, is a Hitchcock wannabe of the Horror/Psychological Thriller genre. He has also been greatly influenced by classics like ROSEMARY'S BABY, WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE and near-Cult Classics like IT'S ALIVE! His D.O.B. doesn't appear anywhere I could find, but since he received B.A. degrees from Emerson college in 2002 in, get this now: FILM and PSYCHOLOGY, I doubt he's over mid-30's!

BTW, he also is credited for the screenplay on GRACE! We will be hearing a lot more about Paul Solet in the future! GRACE really gets in your brain, with that imminent sense that something dreadful and/or horrific is going to happen any second...but for the most part, it doesn't. I know there are a lot of you who flat out reject that in a movie. You'd probably be better off passing on GRACE in that case.

8*....ENJOY/DISFRUTELA!

Any comments, questions or observations, in English o en Español, are most welcome!
