The Sound and the Fury (2014)
I watched this movie today in a blizzard mainly because it was a classic novel and because James Franco was in it. I never read it so I had no idea what I was in for. Right from the beginning I had a feeling of doom looming over this family. While I will admit it was very confusing there was an undercurrent that consistently led me to believe something terrible was about to happen. The score of the film took one even deeper into this morose feeling. When it was over I actually felt ill and had a raging headache. Now I must read this novel. I feel this alone makes this film earn a ten star rating.
I feel Mr Franco was successful in allowing you to peer into the subconscious of the characters and let your mind fill in the fine details. I suppose this is the way it was written. This film took me someplace I did not want to be but I could not turn away. I found it fascinating and am looking forward to reading the book.
First Night in the New House (2015)
As a preview of a movie yet to be made this was exceptionally promising. I would definitely want to see the feature film. I loved the build up to the possibility of danger lurking in this new home. I could feel the dread of the girl as she peered around the room to discover where this sound was coming from. You could feel the fear building up in her as she was able to eliminate the non threatening possibilities.
Katelyn Marie Marshall showed her skills as an actress in this brief peek at what promises to be a frightening experience for her family in the new house.
The producers of this short demonstrate the great art of subtlety which I feel is so important in the building of suspense and horror. Can't wait for the full feature film.
