Promising debut
9 November 2015 | by wearesupermassiveSee all my reviews

Five 'kids' wind up dead. Now what? That's not a spoiler, just an interesting take on the purgatory film. Normally you spend half an hour labouring through exposition to find out what the viewer already knows. Not here. But that's not the interesting thing about this micro budget horror film. Nor is the majority female cast which one reviewer here seems to have taken a huge dislike to.

What's interesting about this film is what it doesn't do. No mad slasher deaths, no blood - in fact if you're after a traditional horror film then this isn't it. But as other reviewers have noted, the hook is the central idea. Revealing it would be a spoiler but this is psychological and philosophical horror. And as such it warrants judging against slightly different criteria to some of the more standard fare we see in horror.

The film wears its budget lightly, the lighting is superb and the CG for the most part holds up brilliantly with impressive detail. And there are some genuine scares to be had along the way. The performances are a step up from what you normally see with Sam Keeley and Lorna Nickson Brown particular standouts.

Afterdeath is a curious film in that it looks like it should be a standard cabin in the woods scare fest, but there is nothing lurking in the shadows for there are none. It's what's in store for the characters in their immediate and very certain future that holds the thrill. Teased out in clues and detective work by the characters you suddenly realise that their predicament poses some fairly difficult questions for the whole of humanity. That's rare in a horror film these days.

It's an interesting addition to the genre and a strong debut from co-directors Robin Schmidt and Gez Medinger. Not perfect but promising...
