I’ve been granted press accreditation for the 11th Grimmfest, the Manchester’s International Festival of Fantastic Film. So, I had the opportunity to watch and review a bunch of upcoming horror movies. This is my review of The Shed (USA, Frank Sabatella, horror).
Derelict is the passion project of Cristian and James Broadhurst, two brother who directed the movie together, with Cristian writing the script and James acting in it. The two of them put together some 150.000 Australian dollars – yes, the movie comes from Down Under – to make this slasher flick where a group of three friends end up in an abandoned building, finding themselves trapped and stalked by a masked assailant.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present you one of the biggest marketing gimmicks, one of the most outstanding examples of manipulation towards film audience in cinema history: Death House.
Writing about the best and worst horror remakes of all time is a very hard task, therefore I called in the cavalry!
I’ve been waiting to write this analysis and explanation piece for a while and now, over the course of three days and after rewatching the film twice, I’ve finally made it!
