Winterbeast 2008 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Yikes! “Winterbeast” is a true no-budget classic! Non-existent production values are coupled with powerful hallucinatory imagery, some of which is truly disturbing, to create an absolutely unique viewing experience. The clay-animated monsters remind one of Art Clokey on a bad acid trip; they remain cute and likable as they graphically tear their victims to pieces. One sequence featuring a marvelous actor, Bob Harlow, wearing a clown mask and prancing about a dead body to an ancient recording of a childrens song, is as creepy as anything you’ll ever see on film. “Winterbeast’ is no-budget filmaking at its finest. You’ll have trouble sitting through it the first time. Then you’ll watch it again, and again.
The audio commentary by director Chris Thies and producer-editor-animator Mark Frizzell is a virtual crash-course on the joys and agonies of making a no-budget film, a great and insightful bonus on this disc and not to be missed.
“Winterbeast” is Grade-Z horror at its best. Highly recommended!
