SELLA TURCICA (2010)
« on: March 05, 2013, 06:30:04 AM »


Quote
Sgt. Bradley Roback (Damien A. Maruscak) returns home from active duty after a mysterious accident leaves him paralyzed. Awaiting his return, his mother, Karmen (Camille Keaton), and younger sister, Ashley (Jade Risser), remain unaware of the details of the accident and severity of Brad's condition. Once he arrives, though he looks sickly, his family members are pleased to see him alive and don't bring attention to his ill appearance. Over the next twenty-six hours Brad's condition terribly worsens, barreling down to a gruesome conclusion that will change the family forever.

Well thought I would add this after mentioning it in the CHILDREN SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS thread here http://extremehorrorcinema.com/index.php?topic=656.0 Both are films that are slow burners that build up to a horrific final.

I enjoyed this from the got go on my first watch. I t drawer me in on pondering what the big final would be. Even on the trailer you are left unsure. I won't spoil it but will say it is worth it. Won't talk anymore about the actual film simply because I don't want to spoil it for any of you willing to give it a try.

An interesting side fact is that it stars Camille Keaton from I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE

Not to give too much away I always felt that this is a zombie movie of sorts.

Fred just had a screening of this one this weekend at the Horror Realm convention in Pittsburgh. Anyway, I really get irritated when I hear people say this one is "too boring" or "takes too long to get to the good stuff." People, horror movies don't always just have to be about blood and guts. Why don't you sit down and watch something that takes its time to tell a good story and provide you with a build-up? If you can't do that, you should go watch something else. I feel there's many who just don't get it.

No need to quibble about those folks. I love the movie and am anxious to see what direction Fred goes with the next movie.

I love this film as well. Heard certain comments about this before I bought it but went and got it anyway and loved it myself. Yes compared to other films under the Toe Tag banner it seems slow but fuck like you stated not al horror needs to go at 100 miles an horror. It's this build up of tension with what is going to happen. In ways similar to what they do in Sick Boy...love both movies for what they bring to the table!
