“CreepyPasta ‘Candle Cove’ re-imagined by Andrew J.D. Robinson starring Anne-Carolyne Binette & Tristan McIntosh, produced by WORKOBEY Films”
Two siblings, a brother, and sister find some old VHS tapes and reminisce about one of their favorite childhood films. What they end up finding is truly horrifying.
Candle Cove is an imaginative redefining of an original CreepyPasta called- you guessed it- Candle Cove. The introductory scene was just as captivating as it was charming. If you are a fan of juxtaposition, you will thoroughly enjoy the combination of endearing marionette puppets and the sheer terror that befell them. Diehard fans of CreepyPasta will love this film.
As a thespian and film enthusiast, who has viewed dozens of film school projects, I found this one to be very standard as far as technical aspects are concerned. This is not necessarily a negative thing, though it could potentially make it difficult for the film to stand out amongst similar films. Many a time, I have viewed films with the same lighting, the almost-too-perfect cinematography, and the acting that was “good, but not exceptional”. None of these things are flaws, and I am only speculating based on my own personal experiences. Being technically proficient is a positive thing, and I believe that this attribute will set Robinson apart from others in the future. It seems that he has potential, and I look forward to viewing his future projects.
If you are a fan of “cute but creepy”, this a film that you must watch! Though I personally found it to be rather conventional, do not let that deter you from experiencing the eerie nostalgia of Candle Cove. This film was just as creepy as it was pleasant, and I can’t seem to reiterate enough that I am highly anticipating Robinson’s future creative endeavors.
