Movie Review: Dreadtime Stories (2014)
DREADTIME STORIES is horror anthology of short stories from the Independent Texas Production house of STX Media.
I helped promote this film through various social medias. Once the film hit the film circuit, I thankfully received a SCREENER of this movie to review.
The film itself is a rarity in the day and age of horror, due to the fact that not many filmmakers make anthologies. Not since the 70’s AMICUS to the 80’s and early 90’s Creepshow/Tales from the Darkside era have the horror fans really had a taste. So, it’s awesome to see someone bringing it back. The film also is made for the fans, by the fans which is another thing I respect about this project.
The film is set into a series of 9 shorts and a wraparound story. Home Cooking Forgotten Harvest Hollow Useless Wits End Stained Affection Punishment Empty Distension
Each one has a different feel and pulls you into their dark world. There is also quite a bit of humor thrown in. The stories range from cannibalism, scarecrows, murder, killer clowns and werewolves!!
The film is smart, well written, the editing was very well done. Most of all, the stories are original and not a rehash of a lot of the films that are out today. The visual effects are quite impressive as well as the cinematography. The film itself has the scares, the gore, the smarts and the story to appease any horror fan.
Considering the small budget $2,000 which they had, the film comes off like a $100,000 production.
I am personally looking forward being a part of and getting a copy of Vol. 2 in the near future.
I stumbled across this film and wasn’t really sure what to think. My tastes are pretty particular, and I’m more often than not seriously disappointed by what I come across. But the glowing reviews for this film made me give it a try, and my love for anthology films had already piqued my interest.
I’m very glad I watched Dreadtime Stories. And if it’s true that their budget was as low as it was, then all the more reason to praise the production. I have seen higher-budget films that don’t look as good as this one did, and likewise have seen higher-budget films that weren’t as well- written, well-shot, and in general excellent in composition and the way they’re put together. The acting can be kind of a mixed bag, but most of the actors did a good or at least acceptable job.
The only story I didn’t really care for much was the framing narrative, which was comparatively sloppy and unfulfilling. Most of the segments are excellent and intriguing, and they don’t overstay their welcome, though they might be a bit shorter than some would expect. I feel this is a positive quality, however; it’s more common that ambitious low-budget titles just don’t rein themselves in and, as a result, tend to try for more than they’re able. Dreadtime Stories excels probably in large part because it knows its limitations and stretches to maximum potential, but never pushes too far past its boundaries.
I have to say, this is a surprisingly enjoyable film. It’s head and shoulders above most of its kind. I recommend it without hesitation to horror fans, especially anthology fans. And if I’m honest, more than a few of these stories were far better than some of the segments in anthology films of my most favorite period, that of the Amicus heyday.
A big and heartfelt bravo to Dreadtime Stories. Whatever this crew do next, I will check it out.
