The response has been nothing short of PHENOMENAL, in fact the CUT! Vol 6 exclusive preview screening of John Wayne Gacy serial killer flick THE LAST VICTIM was our first FULL HOUSE! SO JOIN US AND SEE WHAT ALL THE FUSS IS ABOUT!
HERE ARE ALL THE JUICY DETAILS:
MOVIE: EVIL RISING It’s doubtful that you will have ever seen a horror film that’s as challenging and intellectually stimulating as this Finnish chiller.
Set during 1595 in the aftermath of a war between Finland and Russia: when two brothers serving in the Finnish army leave a young girl to die a hideous death, her spirit returns to mercilessly torment them. Weary and at their wits end, the siblings seek solace in the sin cleansing sauna of a nameless village – only to find themselves in a nightmare far greater than the one they’re trying to escape.
From the very measured, opening close-up of a running river slowly turning red with blood, through the sombre tone and bare bones visuals, Evil Rising screams art-house from start to finish. Yet, while it possesses the kind of haunting atmospherics seen in Andrey Tarkovsky’s Stalker or Lars von Trier’s Antichrist, it is also reminiscent of J-Horror flicks such as Ringu. So it won’t surprise you to learn that the emphasis here is skin- crawling creepiness, with just a hint of gore.
Admittedly, the somnambulist pace and exceptionally emotional dimension won’t be to everyone’s taste, but they’re aspects that make Evil Rising a cut above the rest. That and director Antti-Jussi Annila evident decision to allow viewers’ imaginations to run wild and draw their own conclusions about what they’re watching. Consequently, where most contemporary horror flicks provides a quick yet forgettable fright fix, Annila has delivered something that could easily result in sleepless nights.
This is an EXCLUSIVE, ADVANCE PREVIEW, as EVIL RISING isn’t officially released on DVD 25th JULY. SEE IF FIRST AT CUT!
