My Review Of "Winterskin"

"Winterskin" is a throwback to classic creature horror, blending folklore with ethereal, whimsy and nightmare. It is reminiscent of the atmosphere and character drama found in 80's anthology series such as "Tales From The Darkside". There is an almost "home entertainment" quality, that despite the film's flaws, makes "Winterskin" captivating and entertaining.

The story is a straightforward concept with an almost wildness survival aspect, fitting somewhere between The Donner Party and Windego. It keeps with the microbudget, indie horror feel. The cast is great at bringing these doomed characters to life. And, even though the more minial dialog stumbles, there is a lot of theatrical, twisted juiciness written in "Winterskin" that plays with both amusement and gothic elements, adding to this bizarre and chilling tale.

The special effects on display in "Winterskin" is excellent. The gruesome and macabre nature of the "skinless" is disturbing, reminding me of Frank in "Hellraiser". There are a couple of exploding blood bag effects that tease a more 3-dimensional, graphic novel style, which despite the intent, come off as hokey. Beyond that the horror elements are great, placing this indie horror above the expected dreg. Pair that with nostalgia inducing cinematography and a total 80's music score, and "Winterskin" is a definite one to watch.

Video throwback

Literally from the first moment of this film -- the logo for Dark Temple Films -- I had the feel of renting a movie I had no idea about from my old haunt, Prime Time Video.

While hunting in the woods, Billy Cavanagh is accidentally shot. Looking for shelter when he's taken in by the kind and kooky old lady Agnes, unaware that her isolated log cabin is being stalked by a bloodthirsty skinless creature hellbent on getting inside. And he's even more unaware that Agnes is completely unhinged.

That's a great beginning that makes you ask: And then?

Directed by Charlie Steeds (Escape From Cannibal Farm, The House Of Violent Desire), I'd compare this to a blend of Evil Dead and Misery. Yet it's very much this film is its own story.I enjoyed the film, as its a throwback to 80's video store rental fare. The FX are solid, with plenty of gushing over the top gore. I just wish some of the outside shots had the same care as the inside ones, but that's a minor quibble.
