One of the hardest parts about writing a blurb for a secret screening is the balance to strike. Reveal too much and the surprise is spoiled for the audience; reveal not enough and the audience refuses to take a chance. What I can tell you about the film gracing this slot at BUFF this year is that it is one of this year’s best genre films – a scary tale that has been blazing a trail across any festival it has screened at.
It has all the elements for a scary folktale: unsuspecting adults, frightening imagery, tension thick enough to cut and an ever-ominous presence floating through the film. It also happens to be one of my favorite experiences of the year: a no holds barred, blast-off ride of a film that does not stop until it has exhausted every fright out of you. Trust me, buy a ticket, get in line and discover for yourself exactly what recent, brilliant title the BUFF programmers worked day and night to secure.
