Very low budget but interesting movie

Well, I'm pleased that this is a thriller. I was afraid of a gore movie. I like the slowness of the story, plans that certainly want to put the viewer in the southern languor. It works. The images are very beautiful, landscapes, interiors, characters. I see the care taken in framing, in the camera movement. I love the soundtrack. The piano gives a melancholy note, just like the images. On a negative point: the gator. Impossible to believe. It's really stuck on the image, as a kind of hologram. Not scared for a second. Some cutting were somewhat surprising. For example, at one point in the shop, there is twice the same picture of Melody character.

****Major Spoilers*** For the story, how did the director dare to make the character of Joe Lando, a psycho ? I'm joking, I love it, he's so good in this type of role. A caring character at first then he shows his madness. I was surprised to see Zoe in a "normal" role, which does not need big muscles. She is also talented in comedy. At one point in the final scene, I thought she was going to kill him, but, no, huge welcome surprise, Joe is the one who gets away with it in the end. And the last image of Joe whistling, is jubilant. Awesome. ****End of the major Spoilers****

I saw the reviews on IMDb, the movie was advertised as a horror film, reported on horror websites, I think those who saw it expected gore. And were disappointed, the gator images don't help. It has a very low budget, and the director first movie. So I'll definitely give her a chance and follow her next films.

Interesting

Now I am not saying that this movie is going to win an Oscar, but I would not say that it is awful. I have seen awful and this movie isn't it. Kinda reminds me of something I would see on Sunday on the Scifi channel. I gather with a low budget it's hard to make the alligator look super realistic and Deputy Douche is well not fabulous, but I still liked the movie. I love horror movies and while this is not the scariest movie that I have ever watched, it was still a good movie. I would much rather watch this then some cheesy horror flick on the lifetime channel. Zoe Bell did a GREAT job as did Joe Lando and Tom O'Connell. AS for Christopher Biewer, he needs to find another profession. He was the whole reason that I had any big issue with the film. That is why I have lovingly named him Deputy Douche.

Sorry Zoë

I'm a sucker for a creature feature, but I just couldn't get through this one. Zoë Bell did her best. Most of the actors did, in fact. I've seen worse. Much worse. But you can't make a silk purse of a sow's ear. You just end up with a weird lookin' purse and a really angry pig.

Or something like that.

In any case, for me the two big problems were editing and visual effects. Obviously, in a creature feature, visual effects are your bread and butter. And, sadly, the bread and butter in this movie made for one laughable sandwich. I've seen smartphone apps that could superimpose digital effects more convincingly. Made me feel bad for the monster. Poor fella.

As for the editing, it was just a bit... wonky. People standing still for just a beat too long at the start of a scene, for example. Just makes things seem a bit unnatural. And the movie's editing woes gave some scenes a really odd sense of timing. For example, the scene where the lady's playing fetch with her dog, Fluffy. Oddly cut and oddly timed with weird shots of a dog standing alone in the weeds... If you haven't seen the movie and you're a kinda confused trying to picture what I just said in your head, that's pretty much what it feels like watching the scene, too.

I was really hoping I'd like this one, but I just couldn't. I'm sorry, Zoë.
