ONE MUST FALL movie review

 

One Must Fall hits the indie horror scene, and it will not disappoint! I just finished watching the advanced screener sent to me by Antonio Pantoja who is the writer and director of the film! Antonio and I laughed and shared a friendly conversation a few days back on-line, and I do want to be sure to thank him for allowing me to view his movie!

One must fall about a small group of people who work for a crime scene clean up crew. These are the poor souls whose job it is to go in a clean up the mess after a body has expired. In other words, they get to mop up the brains and blood after someone blows their head off.

The crew finds themselves locked in an old abandoned warehouse where butchered bodies had been found from a serial killer that was on the loose. One by one staff members is found by the killer who remains at large in the building even after the murder scene been cleared by local police( Lloyd Kaufman).

Hacked, Skinned and even scalped our killer takes no remorse on his newfound victims. Chained to watch each other be brutally turned into filets, our killer (Barry Piacente) much in the sense of Hannibal Lecter, remains fresh and calm during his slayings. His killings are not senseless, not to him anyhow. He is the anti humanity killer if you will, he kills for all that is wrong with the human race. Piacente did a scaringly good job in his portrayal of a killer!

The film opens a bit slow and does take a bit to pick up, hell Antonio himself told me to get thru the first 25 minutes..and that is just what I did. Although for me, it was about the 45-minute mark when everything turned around, and the film had hit full speed. The fill does manage to add the perfect amount of suspense in with the gore.

In closing, One Must Fall is premiering at film fests, and if you are in the area I do hope you try to attend and support the film, you will not be disappointed as this is one I will be adding to my library.

My only wish for the film would have been for it to have had the chance to have been made with just a slightly higher budget, it indeed could have been that much better! Many indie films are real gems that are deserving of higher production; One Must Fall one.

But alas, Pantoja has a talent to be reckoned with and cant wait to see what he brings us in the next! Be sure to check out One Must Fall soon as you can!!

Keep it evil
