Armistice (2013) is a psychological and supernatural horror thriller that disappointed me. First time director and writer Luke Massey (500 Miles North) did extremely poorly, but then again he excelled over some well known directors this year. This movie shows greatly that it is a low budget film and is mostly shot in a house. Luke could have done a better job executing this movie because the storyline was intriguing and fresh idea for 2014 that has not been made yet. The movie contains violence, suspense, little amusement and lots of redundant moments.
A.J. Budd (Joseph Morgan - CW’s The Vampire Diaries, Immortals, CW’s The Originals, Hex) is a Royal Marine that awakens in a warehouse that he cannot remember of how he got there. He is trapped and forced to fight against a grotesque inhuman creatures every day if he wants to survive. The house is a supernatural house and it appears as though the creature cannot escape the house either. A.J. has help from a journal left by WWI Lieutenant Edward Sterling (Matt Ryan - Flypaper, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Layer Cake) who once was an occupant of the house.
Joseph Morgan’s acting was the best acting in this movie and he is one of the main reasons I gave this movie a 3. The other reason is that the movie had potential but was not executed properly and it was not because of the low budget. I saw a lot of low budget movies that did overwhelmingly better than high budget movies. Armistice reminds me greatly of Groundhog Day. I would not recommend this movie because I feel it is a waste of time.
