Good and underrated Horror
I usually rate movies worse than the IMDb rating, this is one of the more glaring exceptions. I liked Black Mountain Side from the director and this one is in the same slow building atmospheric Lovecraft subgenre. It’s not perfect, actors and pacing could have been better, but Szostakiwskyj creates a one of a kind mood, I very much enjoy, especially in the later half of the movie. I really hope we get more films of this kind from him!
Nothing spectacular in any way or shape here…
I literally had no idea what I was sitting down to watch when I sat down to watch the 2018 movie “Archons” from writer and director Nick Szostakiwskyj. But I was lured in by the movie’s cover, and the fact that it was a horror movie.
Well, as for a horror movie, well, that might be going out on a stretch, because this movie wasn’t much of a horror movie, but more of a thriller. Albeit a rather bland and boring thriller.
The storyline told in “Archons” was something that had been done and seen before in other movies, and more often than not also done way better than it was done in “Archons”. So you are not missing out on a particularly great moment in cinematic history with this movie. And the ending of the movie just had me dumbfounded, as it made so very little sense.
The acting in the movie was actually adequate enough, taking into consideration the massive restrictions imposed on the actors and actresses by the tedious script and ultimately overall boring movie.
Visually then “Archons” wasn’t an impressive movie. Sure, the thing with keeping the creatures secluded from full view worked well enough, to a certain point. Then it just started to wear thin and become annoying. It worked back in the 1980s and 1990s, but when I sit down to watch a horror movie today I want to see the creature in all its gore or glory.
“Archons” managed to retrieve a meager two out of ten stars from me. I was able to sit through the entire movie, hoping that it would pick up its pace and become better – it just never did. This is hardly a movie that I would recommend that you spend your time, money or effort on; some of us did, so you don’t have to.
