I film stuff
Amid the imminent lockdown, I might give the Masters of Horror series a rewatch starting with Coscarelli's Incident On and Off a Mountain Road. Found it genuinely entertaining in the way early to mid 2000's slashers were. (SPOILER!) Could of done without the big R moment. Understand it's driving home the point but felt unnecessary and probably would be avoided if it was made today.
Entertaining, speeds along and Angus Scrimm looks like he's having a lot of fun.
There's a good film in there but it's hidden amongst a self-indulgent 2hrs 32mins running time. Trim off 40 minutes, 30 if you're being generous, and stop explaining everything. There's having room to breath and then there's coming to a clattering stop as the film decides to take a fag break.
The casting and performance of the Dr. Klemperer character is unconvincing and further adds to the film's pretension.
It's a shame to see the film's strange imagery, intriguing camerawork and Stuart Gordon-esque body horror come a little undone by the film's self-importance. There's a lot to like, but also a lot of nothing.
