Something is just off
Atmosphere, yes. Great locations, yes. Interesting enough premise, yes. And I didn’t notice that the lead male couldn’t act until “Eve” showed up. She can act, but at the community theater level. Lordy, when she said “I’m from the South” in that “I’m not from the South and I don’t think I’ve ever been there” accent it was over. Oh, did you know she trained as a dancer? Well, golly, there’s a scene where she spins.
It’s just all fluff and stiff moments with decent locales, some nice nature shots, and a MYSTERY!
Solid Entry into the Folk Horror Canon
There is a lot to love about Lord of Tears. Despite its obvious low budget, it was clearly made with a lot of love and passion and that shows on screen.
The story has elements of Lovecraftian lore, as well as similarities to other Folk Horrors, such as The Borderlands, but it still manages to stand up in its own right.
For the most part, the two leads were pretty good. Alexandra Hulme is very watchable, although the extended dance sequence and swimming pool scene, despite being nice in themselves, do drag down the pace of the film somewhat. David Schofield is strong in the first half of the film, but a little less convincing as his character begins to come apart at the scenes later on.
The Scottish landscapes are stunning and the locations are great. The “monster” of the movie was quite an inspired choice – despite borrowing from the killer of Soavi’s Stagefright – as I imagine it was (relatively) inexpensive to manufacture, but looks genuinely frightening.
There are some odd framing choices made for one or two of the interior shots at times. This could be due to the restrictions of the space, an attempt to disconcert the viewer, or just lack of experience. In any case, they do bring a slightly amateurish feel to those shots, especially when compared to the stunning exteriors.
The music is, for the most part, very good, but the overall mix of the film (dialogue, Foley, sound design, music etc.) would have benefited from another draft. Some of the Foley and ADR in the exterior shots is much too dry and in the viewer’s face to feel natural.
Overall, this is an enjoyable film to watch, as long as you understand what you are getting into regarding budget and production values. Taken for what it is, this is a good micro budget film made by passionate and enthusiastic filmmakers.
