USA, 2008 (MIFF 2009, Young Blood)
Director: Christopher Denham
“This is the kind of slow burn, believable descent from childhood into insanity that Rob Zombie wished he had captured in his Halloween remake.” - Dread Central
Actor Christopher Denham (Charlie Wilson's War) turns in a creepy-as-hell filmmaking debut of the hand-held, fictional ‘found footage' style that sees one family's Norman Rockwell existence turn into a bloody nightmare.
From Halloween to Easter, the holiday home videos of a Lutheran pastor (Adrian Pasdar from Heroes) and his child-psychologist wife reveal something worryingly awry with their ten-year-old twins. Why are the children stapling frogs to trees?
Home Movie culminates in a chilling final act that is guaranteed to leave everyone shell-shocked - especially the parents in the audience.
Director Christopher Denham received an award for best up-and-coming filmmaker at last year's Sitges film festival.
