Overview: 

The film centers on a lengthy therapy session. Account to events surrounding a venture is the basis of the ninety minute running time. The synopsis offers the impression of a supernatural Horror or Thriller. Yet, Jerry J. White III offers an abysmal psychological drama.  Attributing Horror premise.

“The Horror” is an expression of artistic quality.  After viewing, the film opens the platform for in depth analysis. Actions, and circumstances portrayed may offer a direct interpreted. Yet, its the underlying elements to these circumstances that garners further debate.

Pros:

Based on our interpretation “The Horror” delves in the realm of psychosis. The premise offers a metaphor for mental illness/instability. The ninety minute running time is a venture within the dark regions of the human mind. The in itself is “The Horror”.

Characters receive portrayals with noteworthy experience. This is a welcoming aspect making the film a worth while viewing. Rest assured there isn’t any sup-par acting involved here.  The cinematography coupled with dynamic lighting offers artistic value and engaging visuals.

Cons:

“The Horror” is not terrifying nor does it convey a strong supernatural element. The production is a slow burner.  Viewers will find themselves shifting in their seat from lack of stimuli. Instead of exhilarating tension, presented is a plot that caresses the senses. This breed of story narrative may entertain some enthusiasts of the Horror genre. For many the film will serve as a coma inducing agent.

The opening scene to Act I finds a group of friends engaging in an urban legend ritual. The scene develops via Found Footage cinematography. This serves as an attention grabber and nothing more. Therein lies the impression that the film would follow a similar course from the start. Yet, interest slips away as scenes nibbles away on time.

Closing thoughts:

“The Horror’ despite acclaim and recognition is not a film for the general audience. Most would enjoy the subtle pace of delivery. Others may not. In any event, the writing team of; Raymond Creamer, Sarah Carman, and Jerry J. White III deliver a psychological drama with success.
