When her grandfather dies, Robin (Rachel Nichols) and Leo Murphy (Yohance Myles) return to her birthplace in Germany’s Black Forest to find a terrifying secret waiting for them. Yes, as always, you should never go back home ever again.
Directed, co-written by and featuring acting by Miles Doleac (Hallowed Ground, The Dinner Party, The Historian), this movie also finds him bringing back Jeremy London from Mallrats to play Robin’s grandfather in flashbacks, the kind of dude who makes kids eyeballs out of freshly killed deer.
So before you know it, three witches and the demigod Cernunnos, Lord of the Hunt, are killing everyone and anyone as they hunt the different characters in pairs. There’s an awesome reveal of the demigod which brought Demonoid to mind which is — in my world — a very good thing.
I mean, this is the kind of movie that dares to start with three witches ripping a demon baby directly out of a woman’s stomach. That takes some guts because how do you follow that? This is the best film I’ve seen Doleac create and it’s a marked improvement over his previous movies.
This really surprised me. It’s a quality folk horror slasher hunt movie that has some name actors and a budget used to its fullest.
