TIFF has now come and gone, and the reviews are in. In this review for The Girl in the Photographs, The Hollywood Reporter weighed in about the horror film, executive produced by Wes Craven before his passing. Read the review here or see an excerpt below.
The film, while I’ve not seen it YET is already a favourite here at RHR headquarters, as we placed FIVE RHR artists in the picture. Hey – Contrived, John Jerome & The Congregation, Heather Green, NO BODIES and Michael Feuerstack – let’s get some beers, eh?
Wes Craven executive produced this second feature from horror guru Nick Simon.
A creepy and quirky suburban slasher whose prosaic script is boosted by a playful sense of style, not to mention a welcome sense of humor, The Girl in the Photographs marks an amusingly gory sophomore effort from writer-director Nick Simon (who co-penned the screenplay for Fox’s The Pyramid).
Starring Claudia Lee (Kick-Ass 2) as a South Dakota teen tormented by a pair of sadistic shutterbugs, and the hilarious Kal Penn as an unbearable L.A. hipster you’re just hoping will meet his end, this offbeat indie chiller benefits from colorful cinematography and bits of satisfying butchery, even if a less than airtight scenario fails to make it run efficiently. Following a premiere in Toronto’s Midnight Madness section, a small domestic release and VOD playdates could be in store – especially with the endorsement of the late Wes Craven, credited here as executive producer.
Rain Over St. Ambrose has just released a new video for my jam on the record, “Broken Love”.
See that singer man, there? I have known him since he was 14 years old or so. His name is Cory (but not what we called him), and he’s grown in to a hilarious, lovely young man. He’s a dad now. And, methinks, a pretty cool lookin’ front man. 🙂
