What they say: A perfect getaway for a group of friends turns into a nightmare in this amazing French micro-budget horror/sci-fi film! Thomas, Yann, Vincent and three female friends hop into their cars and travel to the French mountains for a relaxing weekend trip. On their way, a dangerous psychopath escapes from prison and there’s even talk of a ghostly female apparition haunting the area. After picking up a suspicious hitchhiker, a thick fog envelops their cars and sends them all over a steep cliff! Barely surviving the fall, they soon discover something even more horrifying. An ancient creature lives under the ground… listening and waiting. It’s ready to devour anyone and anything in its path and this group of friends is very much on tonight’s menu!
Shot on non-anamorphic standard definition video with a very limited budget, RESONNANCES is filled with great performances, inventive ideas and some pretty amazing low-budget special effects. Mix one part TREMORS, a heaping helping of THE THING and add a splash of THE EVIL DEAD’s directorial inventiveness you get this ambitious love letter to independent DIY genre filmmakers everywhere!
What I say: As you can infer from the above this film is pretty low budget. But honestly, if that is true, then this is a damn impressive bit of indie filmmaking. With great special effects, featuring everything from outer space to the middle ages to the ghostly Woman in White to the creature it’s self I have to say this is the most impressive debut I have ever seen. Even the performances are all excellent. The story is even witty and pretty well done.
There is only one negative about this package to me, the fact that it’s 4×3 letterbox instead of anamorphic widescreen. But this was done to preserve the films natural state, but I wish it had been an option as I lost a good deal of real estate on my LCD.
But that alone is not enough to condemn this package. If you have ANY interest in indie horror, you MUST check out Resonnances. It’s that good.If only the big horror movies had a fraction of the talent showcased here…
