Slow burn psychological horror
6 July 2014 | by ziggamothSee all my reviews

The Lord of Tears is a slow burn psychological horror set in Scotland. This is a throw back Gothic horror that uses location and setting to set a lonely, isolated mood that is used to wonderful effect.

The pacing that is set is slow and deliberate, moving at it steady pace building to end. It is easy for movies like this to easily fall into the "slow and boring" range, but LOT does not become boring. The pacing follows it's own steady to the final confrontation of the film.

The only slight draw back to this film is the acting can be a bit stiff, but it's not to the point of distracting from the movie. The characters are allowed to develop in a natural way.

All in all this is a fantastic moody horror that is able to use location, mood and emotion to carry it to an actual old school horror that will be left with you. This is not the modern jump-out-and-scare you BS "horror", nor does it rely on gore, that people think horror is today.

Wonderful movie.
