My 13 Horrifically Silly Days blog overlapped with some of the festival, so these posts are a little behind. Anyway, take a look at what aired on Super Channel on Wednesday October 28th:
Dr. Henry Walsh (Julian Richings, Ejecta) and his wife, Audrey (Sheila McCarthy, I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing) are still grief stricken over the loss of their grandson, Jackson, in a car accident two years earlier. They would do anything to have him back including an incredible plan that includes kidnapping one of Henry’s pregnant patients and a ritual that works as a ‘reverse exorcism’. Keith Cooper’s script and the lead performances play it straight for this haunting tale of good people driven to do a horrible thing and facing the consequences.
MY TAKE: These are not your every day Satanists...not the dark, evil couple you would expect. Julian Richings gives a charming turn as Henry, a bumbling, somewhat scattered fellow, and Audrey, so brilliantly portrayed by Sheila McCarthy, is as incredibly sympathetic as she is fastidious. What a delightful pair of Satanic Worshipers! But the mayhem they unleash in their attempt at a reverse exorcism is a dark and twisted treat -- including a tooth-flossing lady straight out of a dentist's nightmare, a contortionist constantly suffocating and a great effect reminiscent of the wood chipper scene in Fargo.
MY TAKE: Some beautiful and gritty underwater footage! Takeaway -- maybe don't dump so much plastic into our oceans and lakes, huh?
