3.0 out of 5 stars Think Gothika but not quite as good, 7 May 2012
This review is from: Cassadaga [DVD] (DVD)
I was a little reluctant to give this one a try based on only one other review but thought i'd take a gamble. As it turns out it's a decent film. The synopis itself gives away the plot so I don't think drawing parallels with Gothika will give much more away. In essence, our heroine tries to make contact with her dead sister via a medium but ends up being hooked-up with a vengeful spirit out for revenge; said spirit being the victim of a serial killer in the town of Cassadaga (hence the rather odd title).

So what you have is a blend of whodunnit, serial killer flick and supernatural horror in one; which all works reasonably well. The lead actress does a good job of carrying the picture along with a cameo from Louise Fletcher (my has it been that long since Cuckoo's Nest?).

The intro scene is rather bizarre which makes more sense as we find out what our particular serial killer's pecadillos are. Very gory and disturbing in equal measure; the whole torture porn genre has a lot to answer. Although medically impossible but, hey, I watch horror films to suspend belief.

In short, a decent watchable horror-ish film that does what it says on the tin. Oh, and the rather toothsome female spends most of the film wearing just shorts which is always a winning plot device in my opinion...
