In Dante Tomaselli’s newest film, Horror, he takes everything that was good in Desecration, and makes it better with Horror! The first 15 to 20 minutes is rather slow as we are introduced to the characters, but unfortunately it doesn’t do a good job because we don’t learn all the character’s names until later on in the film. Once Grace finds Luck and his friends in her barn, the film really picks up and it’s non-stop horror as we are treated to vomiting blood, zombies attacking, some crazed killer with a shovel, and so much more. The film has this feeling of dread and it doesn’t ease up, not even during the credits as the music is very effective. Speaking of the score of this film, it really helps with the mood and gives you a feeling of dread that is often not found in horror films. Desecration showed us what kind of potential Dante Tomaselli has. Horror shows us that Dante Tomaselli knows how to deliver a solid and often scary horror film! For the final 45 minutes of this film, I don’t think there was a second that I didn’t have a feeling of dread for these characters as I wanted to see what happened next. This is a film that will keep you thinking long after it’s over, and it proves that an effective horror film can be made without a big budget! Horror delivers, and it’s highly recommended! With only a few minor flaws, and non-stop horror, this film is a must see for all horror fans!
