BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
Know what really makes me happy? People trusting me enough to send me their horror films to review. And you know what else I really love? Short horror films. Short horror films are special in the way they really have to thought about and in depth to fit everything the film maker wants into such a short amount of time. That is just what Marcos Cordas gave me the honour of doing, he recently sent me his latest short to watch, and I loved it! "A relationship gone awry evolves into a mysterious disappearance, which two teens must solve to find their missing friend."
Kurusu Serapio is a found footage film, that fitted into just six minutes is a full story, one that covers mystery, witchcraft and relationships – whether it be the relationships that are frowned on. Within six minutes is a story of friends trying to help another, who is falling into a very deep hole of trouble, and it is covered, everything is covered, it is not rushed, you are left wanting more. Questions are answered and really, once it’s over and you watch the credits until the end, (make sure you do!), you want more.
As I mentioned before, this is a found footage film, which I do feel people tend to sometimes roll their eyes at and get out their torches and pitchforks as they really don’t like them, especially if you suffer with motion sickness, but don’t worry! You can leave all your motion sickness medicine at home, Marcos has you covered! The found footage footage in Kurusu Serapio are ideal. It feels real when you are watching the found footage parts, (small sections are done like a normal film), the filming is all very clear and easy to watch, and none of it makes the room start to spin, yeah, looking at you, Avatar...
I really was a big fan of Kurusu Serapio, everything was covered in the short amount of time, but it also left you wanting more, it’s set out with very clear time stamps, and everyone loves a mystery – and this does mysterious very very well. Not only do I love it, but others do as well, as Kurusu Serapio has been featured in numerous festivals such as Terror Cordoba and AM Egypt and is also part of the compilation film, Chunks of Horror. I’ll leave the link below to Chunks of Horror if you would like to watch, which you should, actually, I highly recommend you go and watch it – NOW. GO! https://vimeo.com/ondemand/chunksofhorror
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
