Best indie horror I've seen in years (by the_bulb)
Last night I watched The Revenant at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival, and it was clear the film took everyone by surprise. Going into the screening armed only with what I saw in the trailer, I wasn't looking forward to much; I feel that I should make it clear to anyone interested in seeing this film - the trailer for The Revenant represents the film in only the most superficial way. Yes, it is a buddy movie; yes, one of the buddies is undead; and yes, there is sarcastic dialogue and gun-play - but those just building blocks to what is, as a whole, a fantastic and sincere film which <more>
doesn't let itself get stuck in a box. What impressed me most about The Revenant was it never felt like it was trying to be cool. It was never trying to imitate, or appeal to a specific market. Granted, it does deal with supernatural elements; even so I would strain to call it specifically a horror film. The characters acted honestly and with a sense of realism that is too often neglected in the genre as of late. I enjoyed watching them make decisions and think for themselves - these were real characters, and real friends. The director was introduced as a special effects artists, who has worked on such films as The Abyss, Bubba Ho-Tep, and the Phantasm series - which is both impressive and unfortunate. Watching The Revenant, he's definitely not just a special effects artist taking a stab at directing; this is a film handled was great confidence and ability, marking a start to what will hopefully be a prosperous career. It would be a great shame if The Revenant just winds up playing the festival circuit and falling into obscurity. Someone needs to pick this thing up, it's gold.
Best movie you may never see! Lets change that! (by zebular)
Alright just to let it be known I'm not a frequent poster on IMDb BUT I absolutely had to exclaim how good this film is. I would def say its Boondock Saints with zombie like protagonists but its much more than that. Its got humor, gore, the ending is AMAZING and when a guy's living head is laying there trying to talk they have the most imaginative way of being able to understand what he's trying to say my favorite part of the movie and you'll agree when you watch this! . If you've been gnawing at the bit to see this movie I can tell you you can find it on the net but for <more>
the love of god if you CAN buy it DO IT! Films like this really need your support! My rating for this movie is 9/10 The only reason I knocked it down a point is because of one of the actress' acting or lack there of. Shes a friend of the main characters and her acting skills are pretty horrific everyone else in the film are pretty convincing.WATCH IT, BUY IT, RECOMMEND IT, POST IT, LINK IT, LIVE IT, BREATHE IT AND FOR GOD SAKES AT LEAST GIVE IT A CHANCE!
Destined to become a huge cult classic (by markhaazen)
It's an excellent film, funny, inventive, sad, happy, crazy, bloody, violent, tragic and personal. It was strong through beginning, middle and end and I laughed a lot, especially at the end. It is an excellent zombie film.The acting is very good. The effects are excellent. This is a director who worked as a special and visual effects guy on a lot of major sci fi films I looked on IMDb and he worked on The Abyss, Lost Boys, Bubba Ho Tep, etc etc etc etcs and he clearly knows what he is doing. This film looks great, the effects are great and a lot of fun.This film is a MUST for any zombie <more>
fan. Also for any fan of buddy horror comedy films like Tucker and Dale vs Evil.I just wish there were more films like this around. I hope the director makes some more films soon. His last film before the Revenant was in 1996! Despite winning a lot of awards at various festivals check out the wiki page for the impressive full list , The Revenant was frustratingly not given a proper release for far too long.It deserves to become a cult classic !!!!!
I saw this as a midnight horror-show at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Film Festival on April 24, 2010. Knew nothing about the movie beyond the scant information contained in the festival program. Tired from a whole day of movie-going, I considered skipping this one but decided I'd watch the first 15 minutes or so. Then, unless my interest had been captured, I could walk out and head home for some much-anticipated sleep.My interest was captured. After 15 minutes, I thought to myself, "This is pretty good." A bit later I thought, "This is really good." And before long I was <more>
thinking, "This is great!" As a result, "The Revenant" wound up ranking #1 on my 10-Best-List for 2010. Okay, for the record, my other 10-Best choices were: #2 "The Ghost Writer";" #3 "Toy Story 3"; #4 "The Happiest Girl in the World"; #5 "The King's Speech"; #6 "Tears of April"; #7 "Music on Hold"; #8 "Letters to Father Jacob"; #9 "Buried"; #10 "The North Face." Warning: I saw "The Revenant" under ideal conditions. Walked in on it "cold." Had no expectations, no pre-conceptions. If you see "The Revenant" after reading this review, you may be disappointed. It'll lack that element of surprise which made my experience of it so memorable.Don't know if "The Revenant" will ever get wide distribution. It's a hard movie to sell since it can't easily be labeled or described or categorized. But one thing is clear. Writer-director D. Kerry Prior is something of a cinematic genius.
This is a film that deserves more credit than it gets (by paulholborn)
My son found this film & recommended that I watch, having been a fan of David Anders from Heros as Adam Monroe & being a fan of the Zombie genre I had high hopes.I wasn't let down, this film was brilliantly entertaining & the ending totally unexpected! Anders & Wylde work brilliantly together & D. Kerry Prior's script is a great new take on the zombie genre which other film makers should take note of. This film is up there with Shaun Of The Dead, The Vagrant & a host of other films, most of which never get the credit they deserve.A true future classic
Just saw this and loved it!! (by LadyBeth10)
What fun for any horror lover. I must say I am truly surprised! Most other horror/comedy flicks are absolute dreck and not worth the time. But this brought back memories of An American Werewolf in London, and Evil Dead II without being a ripoff. Not bad company for this writer/director/producer. I can't wait to see what he does next, as well as the two male leads who were absolutely, hilariously brilliant! And I've seen some comments here that some thought the ending was probably not the smartest thing to do, but when has the military thoroughly thought out the ramifications of their <more>
tactics such as invading Iraq, which turned out not to have WMDs, just being the first blunder and the ingenious setup for the plot. I personally thought the ending was perfect. A soldier who at the beginning is so morally conscientious it gets him killed, becomes the perfect killing machine at the end which comes full circle. The anti war/gun mentality is deftly embedded. The script is witty, ironic, and very, very funny with a balanced dose of pathos thrown in for good measure which made the characters much more believable and human. Overall great entertainment for those of us who love this deliciously twisted genre when it's done right. Two thumbs way up!!
Deserves To Be A Huge Cult Classic (by badlydrawnhamster)
Despite winning a lot of awards at various festivals check out the wiki page for the impressive full list , The Revenant was frustratingly not given a proper release for far too long.It deserves to become a cult classic in the best sense of the phrase though as it's a very intelligently written new take on the zombie genre, something with a lot of genuinely fascinating ideas which are explored beautifully. Ultimately a horror film with a comedic edge, it has a lot of fun with it's concept, whilst still managing to pull off some truly horrible scenes. Yet it's also got a very <more>
strong emotional core, and certain moments are surprisingly tender and touching. I won't say much more as part of the fun is seeing how the film develops, but ultimately I loved this and would really recommend it to any film fan - and not just those in to horror films.
Overlong but incredibly entertaining regardless (by kannibalcorpsegrinder)
Killed in Iraq, a former soldier returns to his hometown alive but desperately needing blood to survive, and when his buddy decides to have him kill vagrants around town to do so, they find themselves in increasingly desperate situations to try to survive.This turned out to be quite an impressive if mildly flawed effort with a lot to like about it. One of the film's strongest points is the delicate area of how it deals with the guy's condition, bestowing traits of vampires and zombies onto him yet never stating whether he is one or the other and contains traits that cancel out whether <more>
he is one or another. It's a great strategy that pays off quite well as this creates such an endearing creature that the resultant scenes of them hunting people down are a lot funnier than expected and generate some really good, genuine laughs from their bumbling and stumbling around, which is nice to see. That said, it's far too long for it's own good, coming in a good twenty-minutes over it's allotted time for such a goofy, non-horror-specific premise since it adapts an action-movie feeling more than once instead of horror during the middle, and it's quite distracting overall. Otherwise, this is quite enjoyable.Rated R: Extreme Graphic Language, Graphic Violence, Full Nudity, a sex scene and drug use.
I've not written a review for IMDb before, but I'm so impressed with this movie - and there are some misleading negative reviews here that don't represent it at all - I thought I'd throw in my £0.02 worth.Firstly, if you're a horror fan, you'll love it. If not you'll probably hate it and only see its flaws, and it is flawed. We know this though, right? Part of the joy of horror movies is Cheepnis and The Revenant has it's fair share. Louise Griffiths is awful, the pacing is all over the place, and there are some gaping plot holes that frustrate, because <more>
everything else about The Revenant rocks.Secondly, It has to be seen in the light of every other horror movie you've seen to make any sense. Not that it's an homage or anything like that, but it is an original twist on the Vampire/Zombie genre. I wish I'd thought of it and I'm not going to con myself or you into believing that I had or that this is old hat. Thirdly, it is funny, horror and comedy are excellent bedfellows and this succeeds by being one of the campest and morally execrable buddy movies I've seen. Joey and Bart have a great screen relationship as Joey's depraved selfishness creates a downward spiral of mayhem. What's more, it parades it's moral bankruptcy in the guise of vigilantism so we believe we're watching the good guys. Capped off with one of the most quotable lines in a horror movie ever, my heart thrilled and warmed to the two central performances - not to mention some great cameos from the supporting cast.n summary, ignore the haters and naysayers, if you're a horror buff, definitely see this.
