Demonte Colony Reviews
Almost entirely shot in a single room with no gruesome ghosts or unnecessary build up, the director has skilfully created the eerie atmosphere, with incessant rain, a subtle aura of menace, unsophisticated characters and underlying hint of truth. The film is undoubtedly a fine attempt by the debutant director. Definitely worth a watch.
Whilst the movie as a wholesome product is good, there are enough things that would need fingers pointed at. The climax doesn’t give a fulfilling finish and leaves us out scratching heads to wonder if the end was a convincing one. The film is touted as a horror flick, however those “Thrills” and “scary moments” are not many to boast about, its more of a fear that lingers through the screenplay and doesn’t give those shocking moments which are very much essential for a horror movie. Yet, the screenplay is what makes the movie more interesting and grips through the end.
Kudos to the director for choosing a horror subject in his debut movie and delivering it in the best way possible. Demonte Colony is not for the weak-hearted.
Toting up, Demonte Colony made by talented technicians is worth a watch when you want to get spooked.
In spite of losing punch towards the end, Demonte Colony is one those rare films where Thought, Writing & Execution have come together admirably with the ingenious set-pieces & smart technical support proving to be a solid backbone.
